Put down those lipstick ladies. The newest pick-me- up on the market is nail polish!

Previously during times of economic downturn more women relied on buying lipstick as their quick beauty fix but now that’s slowly changing. Now women all over the world are painting their talons with bright hues for a dose of happiness. Termed as the “lacquer index” sales for nail polishes have now surpassed lipsticks. The reason?

Having statement nails has now become a sort of fashion accessory, since it’s far more experimental. From neon shades to holographic effects (and my personal favourite OPI’s shatter range) it can change your entire look. It’s no wonder that celebrities such as Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj have launched their own lines of nail polish. So the next time you’re looking for a shot of cheer – paint those nails!
