I like color. I like sparkle. I like pretty and attractive and feminine.
Sometimes, due to weather or circumstances or illness or busy-ness, our lives can get a little drab. So, I love to find ways to add the beauty of color back into my life.
I am not good at painting my nails. I never did it as a child. Having no sisters may have had something to do with that. But my mom painted her nails every Saturday night. So, really, I have no excuse, except that I really didn't like to sit still long enough to do it.
Since I am so inept, I've developed a theory. I will never have that perfect salon manicure. So I might as well have fun. (And since my paint job is always less than spectacular, why not add a layer of sparkle to cover the defects!)
I bought some new colors recently:
And lots of sparkle to layer on top:
I even watched a video about nail polish clean up and picked up some of the recommended products:
I feel like I'm getting better at it. I am enjoying the process and finding that "practice makes permanent." I know I still have a lot to learn, because some manicures last a week and others peel off in a day. But I'm having fun learning!
Here's to adding color to our lives!
Thanks for reading.
