I admit that I’m addicted to French manicures. Can I afford weekly touch-ups? Probably not. Do I skimp on buying laundry detergent to do just that? Absolutely.
After turning 30, I figured I had outgrown my short, lop sided and brittle nails that I’d become accustomed to for most of my adult life. Much like a New Year’s resolution, I promised myself I would get regular manicures; and with weekly polish changes, I’m able to keep my natural nails in good shape without having to get falsies.
I even do my housecleaning the day before I go to keep the polish lasting longer with fewer chips (once I attack dirty dishes with new gloss on, I may as well look for the nail polish remover). I find French manicures more forgiving than red or dark plum shades because once chips happen, I default to clear gloss right away.
It’s a small thing for me, but it perks me up as soon as my cute little glossy digits are done.
What’s your favourite nail polish colour?
