Nailed It.

My job requires me to work with my hands a lot. Okay, it doesn't technically- I work for a website and am at a computer all day. But, my hands are typing. At a keyboard. And I look at them. All day. Since I have to be the one to put up with them, I like them to look nice. For awhile I was treating myself to gel manicures, which I think we all should agree are heaven sent. But I do my best to save dollars [to spend on fancy coffees & new boots], so I started investing in polishes and doing the mani myself. Since the holiday season is near and the skies are ever-so-dull, I wanted to add some sparkle to my usual solid color. This is the closest you'll ever see me get to nail art.* Here is what I did:

1. Applied "Here Today... Aragon Tomorrow" by OPI.** 
2. Put a $1 sparkle topcoat on. 
3. Applied Sally Hansen's No-Chip Acrylic Topcoat. 
4. Let dry.
5. Took pictures to show you.


Due to the small scratch on my thumb, it is devastatingly apparent my career of a hand model is not going anywhere fast. Bummer. At least I feel good about my mani. What do you do to perk yourself up??

*I will never do nail art because my hands are steady like an earthquake.
**The color is "dark green." What do these names even mean?? They stress me out.
