I treat nail polish like an accessory, it’s a necessity for me. I feel as though the polish color I choose or the name of the polish I choose sets the tone for my outfit, day, evening, date, vacation yes, I could go on. So entering into IVF is no exception. I have been thinking of every detail that inspires me in my career as a professional makeup artist that I could carry over into my IVF journey. You have seen my obsession with fashion socks in some of my recent vlogs, if not you can click here. I am now going to introduce you to the world of nail polish names that give me inspiration, strength, vision and as strange as that sounds to the average person, for a beauty blogger it’s really not that strange, in fact, it’s pretty normal.
One of my favorite polish companies is Essie, not only for the fabulous application and formulas but simply because of the names of their polishes. I went to their website the other day in search of the perfect inspirational polish color to get me through my first week of IVF injections. Now, I was not looking for just any polish name. I was looking for a name that was powerful, strong, courageous, a fighter…..Am I getting carried away? Probably, but that’s actually part of the fun. I went through each and every polish name most of which I have until I found THE ONE! Drum roll please……..Fierce, No Fear. It’s a no-holds-barred intense cocoa mahogany.
I thought it was the perfect name to start my first day of injections tomorrow. You have to be Fierce with NO FEAR to give yourself subcutaneous injections morning and night and did I mention intramuscular injections? Nothing could be more glamorous than prepping up all your injections with the perfectly manicured nails in “Fierce, No Fear.”
I decided to buy three more polishes for the rest of my IVF month and to keep the positive juices flowing. You now know why I chose my first polish, that was easy. Here are the names and reasons why I picked up the other three.
#2 Polish: “It’s Genius”– The Scientists who developed IVF and have given so many women the opportunity to conceive a baby that need just a little extra help, “IT’S GENIUS”. It’s a violet quartz shimmer with beige undertones.
#3 Polish: “Snap Happy“– For the days when you need to just snap out of it and BE HAPPY. It’s a cheerful red orange.
$4 Polish: “Toggle to the Top”– At the end of this YOU will end up on TOP. Visualize, Visualize, Visualize. Gorgeous sparkling crushed garnet red.
