Just like every mom I use my hands a lot. I change diapers, get kids clothed and bathed, wash dishes, laundry, clean, also cook and write a blog. Back before I had kids I always wore acrylics short and square with French manicure design –my husbands favorite- now don’t get me wrong being a mom didn’t make me stop wearing them. It was the fact that I discovered OPI and how to do my own nail color to last me a little over a week even with all my activity.
It’s very easy first regardless if I was or wasn’t wearing nail polish I use a cotton dipped in acetone and rub it against my nails then I apply a base coat and 2 –3 coats allowing each coat to dry for about 2 minutes, after this process I apply a top coat.
My favorite colors from OPI are Lincoln Park After Dark, You Don’t Know Jacques and Russian Navy. My favorite Essie colors are Au Natural, Jazz, Chinchilly and Merino Cool. I also like using drugstore brand such as Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear: Lacey Lilac and Wet Cement.
How do you paint your nails? How do you make the color last?
