I have found a new love. Peel & stick nail polish.  Ok, so that's not the official name. But that's what they are. Pre-designed nail polish. You just pick out the design of your flavor. You peel it and stick it. Bend the extra over the tip of your nail. And file off the excess. Presto. Done. These babies are adorable. Easy. And AWESOME!! AND they are durable!
After 10 days of vaccuming, sweeping, dishes (no gloves), weed eating/raking/picking up yard debris (also no gloves) and ... NO CHIPS!!
I never had good luck with plane o jane o nail polish. Sure the pretty pink & white gel nails done in the mall are durable. But they cost a small fortune. And kill a layer of nails. When I take the time to paint them myself ..... they chip within a day or two!!
But not these little pretties!!!
My ONLY complaint was this: the first ones/brand I got (The black/white design above) had 28 in them.
Enough to do fingers AND toes. The second box/brand I got (the blue star ones above) only had 16 in them.
Only enough to do FINGERS. Which was a bummer.... because I wanted to do both.
I do love them.
The blue ones were Sally Hansen Salon Effect. I have to admit I was hesitant. They felt a little thinner than the black ones (which I tried first). But NOT SO. They were as sturdy as the first ones (which I didn't think were the same brand... but now I can't remember which brand they were).
I'm IN LOVE.
And with so many brands to pick from, I'll be chaning designs every pay day! (which are available at most of the local stores around town) **Did I mention the hubster likes them too?

i got the zebra striped ones. they're the same brand as your pretty flower ones (because i almost bought those instead). now as soon as my stupid fingernail that is so short it borders on painful grows long enough to be able to file, i'll try them out! until then, i'll just keep rocking the day-glo orange polish i got for $1.99 (pretty much fan-dam-tastic!).

brand: KISS Nail Dress (at least i'm pretty sure it was the same brand as the awesome flower ones in your top picture)

    Dear Twin... sometimes words come out of my mouth before my brain has a chance to stop them... well aint that the life...

    Some people make parenting look sooo easy.  They are big fat liar pants.  Parenting is hard.  Kids can be awful.  They don't come with an Instruction Manual.  I started young and have grown up with them.  We have gone through a lot together.  And I would have never been able to do it without the wonderful family I have.  I started blogging because of Twin.  She said that it wasn't nice of me to take a Bad Day out on the Hubby or the Brats.  And so this began.... it's my Rantings From The Time Out Corner... because, let's face it - when I'm full on Cranky Pants... my hubby doesn't fail to make me go Sit One Out for the Team.  (for more see ME above)
