Olive & June nail polish

I started painting my own nails again during the pandemic, and I fell in love with the quality of Olive & June. I love that their polishes are high quality, long-lasting (I can get a mani to last 8 days!), and 7 free- so less of the icky junk. The design of the brush makes it easier to paint, and their colors are fab!
