I have a couple friend who discuss openly with each other when they are an asset and when they are a liability. It is so honest and hilarious and they never really fight about it because usually it is spot on. ”At the beginning of the party, you were an asset with your conversation starters but by your third glass of wine, you really became a liability.”
So let’s be honest, as a beauty blogger, my nails are a liability. In case I had some delusional reverse nail dysmorphia, it all ends when I see this. Not only is the picture terrible but the nails, oh my goodness, why would I post this? ON PINTEREST…..the motherland of Vincent Van Gogh nail art? I must have been drinking. To the 14 people who repinned it, God Bless You and you should make fun of it.
Anyway, I now know who I am but I feel like even without any nail street cred, I would be failing you if I didn’t reiterate Olive’s review on CND Vinylux. I finally tried it and I fully expected it to be one of those, well, of course, it works for her, look at her nails! What doesn’t work? No way is it going to work on my stub hubs. Well, my nails were in bad shape even for me, and I was about to make a first impression. No time for a manicure, I haphazardly slapped on two coats of CND color polish in Powder My Nose. I applied the top coat afterwards. Drying time? It dried before my kids asked me to help them with something. If you know my Littles, you know that could have only been minutes. I figured maybe I would get a day or two out of it. Lo and behold, even on my short, stubby, moving halfway across the country, hauling, packing, flying, carseat installing, stroller pushing, carrying everything nails, I still made it without a chip to day 5. Now, can I paint and cap and file like a pro, hells no but even my amateur job got me 5 days. I text Olive and told her and she said, “Isn’t it AWESOMESAUCE?” Yes, yes it is….even on a liability.
It goes without saying that isn’t my nail right? Available in 62 Colors. I found it on the internet at Beyond Polish for $6.00.
