It's almost embarrassing how much happiness I've been receiving from my finger nails lately.
After a tough and busy week at work, one of my coworkers brought me nail polish as a treat. I normally don't wear nail polish, but I figured that since it was a gift, I should try it - grenadine and sparkles. Turns out it is super cute and so much fun to look down and see my pretty nails typing away.
I usually hate painting my nails because it starts to chip within hours and never lasts more than a few days. It seemed like a lot of hassle. BUT, she brought me Essie nail polish. I had never tried it before, but it lasted all week. A full 7 days that included some serious yard work with absolutely no chipping! I could have kept wearing it, but I was anxious to try a new color.
Ever since I realized that it is possible to have chip-free nails, I've been a little obsessed with what my next color will be. Luckily Andrew intervened at the store as I weighed my different options as if I was making a major purchase and put all five of the colors I was considering into my basket. Yes, I know, five new nail polishes!!! I was feeling a little guilty for buying five nail polishes - I mean who needs that?? But, when I got home, I lined them all up on the table, and it has made me so happy to see the colorful bottles.
