Polished Professionals: Survival Kit

Hello again, everyone! I'm so glad to be back... it's been a stressful ten days prepping for my first day of law school. It hasn't been so much the preparation of books, work, etc, so much as it's been a mental preparation. There have been many meltdowns and panic attacks, but I think once the first week is over, I'll be okay. I survived my LSATs, didn't I?

I thought I'd start a new series on the blog, called Polished Professionals, that I'll be posting about with semi-regularity. I know that many places require much more subdued looks as far as nails are concerned, and that includes law school, so I'll be posting about different options that will allow you to keep your individuality and translate it to your every day look. Additionally, there will be tips for the weekend, quick fixes, etc. Don't worry though, I'll still be posting swatches and nail art that are not subdued in the slightest, so there will continue to be something for everybody!

Today's post is all about my Survival Kit, which I keep in a makeup case in my purse. For the record, because I'm commuting to NYC every school day via bus, I additionally have a small rolling suitcase for my books, laptop, etc. My little case could fit in the suitcase with the rest of the items I put in my handbag, as well, but I'd prefer that I have quicker access to everything.
