Never show your Chips...

The average southern girl goes to the spa for a manicure at an early age. I have taken mine with me in a stroller. Usually about age 3, southern girls ask to have their nails done, too. And, an obsession is born. Yes, there are periods of rebellion as the tween years progress, but by the beginning of the teen years, it is a necessity to have the all important manicure. There are rules for this, also. It's all about the pinks....the occasional red is permitted but for the most part, any shade of pink will do. Geranium, Poppy, Coral...to the range of Cotton Candy and Pink Lemonade....To pick the perfect color, a good Southern girl uses these time tested Southern influences to gauge the color. Never will you see a true southern princess flashing shades of night or blood on her lily white fingers....Cuticles matter so even if using fakes (gasp, but it happens) you should always ask for a manicure before any nailwork. We happen to believe that any polish will do when a weekly appointment is part of the schedule, but abhor anything that costs less than 5.00....Enjoy our Picks for the preppiest polish...because Summer is headed our way!

Shag on,
Preppy Girl

Sephora for OPI - Be sure to become a Beauty Insider to get points and extra samples. The color is "It's All About me" and Southern Girls live by this mantra!

Essie is a Name that sounds Southern Girl friendly and the colors have staying power! The name is "Anniversary Gala" and we know a thing or 2 about Galas!

Maybe we just like the name, but the color is so fresh! "Pink Chocolate" by Orly

Southern Girls turn to a good thing when it matters....Chanel Color "Organdy"
