Reaction to Painting Nails

Lifestyle / Wednesday, June 4th, 2014
When I look down at my poor, suffering hands, I’m thinking I should get around to painting my nails soon. Getting around to it is tough work though. It feels much like this.


Upon deciding to paint them, I feel a sense of determination.


Taking off my old polish


Waiting for some ‘free time’ so I don’t stink everyone out of the house after complaints of the polish remove smell.


Trying to pick a nail polish colour, I’m all like


I get half way done and Gregory wakes up from his nap
I have to wipe the wet polish off my hands and now they are messy.


I am very bad at painting my nails.
Once done painting I start to blow on my fingers so it will dry faster in case the baby wakes
I start to get really light headed as a result


Looks good! Congratulations, just let it dry, don’t smudge while waiting.


Hour later, nail polish smudges slightly and there is an imperfection…


Good thing I’m not a perfectionist when it comes to my nail polish.. Still looks good to me.


Resolves to go to the salon next time and splurge on a mani-pedi for some ‘me’ and relaxation time.
