I paint my nails pretty often. It's rare that you will catch me with bare nails! I think the reason I paint them so often is because my polish always chips so fast. Yes, even when I take all the precautionary steps like filing,smoothing, buffing, base coat, 2 color coats and a top coat.... just like at the salon.
Well, recently I found the single greatest top coat EVER that allowed me to wear the same polish CHIP FREE for five whole days. Not one touch up took place during those five days! MR had to hear me marvel about this for days on end, God bless him, so I thought to get out my "Can you believe how great this stuff is?" feelings(and save him from further polish talk), I would share it with y'all :)
It's called "3 Minute Artificials" by Nail-Aid. It's fantastic!
[this guy has nothing to do with the product, I just like him]
The only problem is I can't seem to find this stuff anywhere online, which leads me to believe they are no longer making it. I scooped mine up at Ross, so I should have known. Womp, womp, womp. Anyway, if you have a Ross near you, check out their beauty section to see if you can score yourself some. Totally worth making the trip for!
Speaking of nails, when I was at the spa a while back getting my nails done, the manicurist used drying drops & within a minute, Bazinga! My nails were dry! Maybe I'm old school, but I'd never seen such a thing! Aerosol sprays, neon lights & good old fashioned lung air were all I knew of!
[besides dipping your wet fingernails in ice water, which actually does work, but it's just a bit of a pain]
So, do any of you modern gals use drying drops? Are the ones on store shelves worth the price?
And in completely unrelated news,
I came up with another karmic reason I might have ugly kids:
I refer to Gabriella of the Jersey Giudice clan as "The cute one".
I mean... really though? That kid looks nothing like anyone in the family.
Must be some cute mail men in those fancy Jersey hoods.
