Oh, don’t get too excited. My fingernails are about the only thing that is ladylike. I still have the mouth of a sailor and often forget to brush my hair. That just happened on Sunday. When I realized it I was already miles from my house and I muttered a few choice words. My journey to ladylike hands started a few months ago when I had dinner with friends. I kept staring at Pam’s hands! Her nails were so pretty and painted the nicest shade of pale pink. Kristen noticed them also so at least I wasn’t the only freak staring at her hands! So, naturally I set my goal to be like Pam!
I hardly ever have my nails done. Actually, the last manicure I had the guy told me my nails were too short to have a color on them! Shame. I was wild and crazy and had chosen a pale pink but after my lecture I left with clear polish.
I decided to buy a few products to see if I could manage to grow my nails and stop with the man hands. I ventured into Walgreens and picked up a few products within minutes. I don’t have the attention span to compare all of the different products and besides the print on them is so small I can’t read them anyways. I just know that Sally Hansen is reliable so I found two products with the key words that fit my need. Maximum growth and miracle. Mainly, I needed the miracle.
It took about a month for my nails to grow beyond the tips of my fingers. I told you I had man hands. This stuff works. I paint my nails with the Maximum growth polish and leave it alone. After a few days I slop some more on top of the other coat. I don’t know if this is wise, probably should take the other off first. Who knows. I can’t read the directions and frankly don’t care. Occasionally, I do take it off and start again. Maybe after four coats.
I use the miracle serum at night when I’m not too tired and it doesn’t seem like a monumental task. It’s kinda lovely and makes my cuticles soft. Because that is a life goal.
You won’t read many beauty product reviews from me. That’s more of Kerry’s gig. I don’t use many products because they are just overwhelming. Maybe once I can remember to brush my hair then I will branch out with more products. My point being that if I have taken the time to take these cheesy photos and write about nail polish then it works. You may also like it. Of course, I might be the only grown woman that is just learning to use nail polish.
