My boss says that manicures are a weekly necessity. For me, they’re more of a bi-monthly luxury. And that means in between pampering times, I’m my own manicurist. My secret is Essie’s Mademoiselle #384 ($6.95), a sheer pink polish that is chip resistant and always goes with everything. It makes your nails look clean without being prissy, and the hint of pink is just a little better than clear polish. Even better is that when it does chip, the color is so sheer that no one but you will even notice.
