The Nail Files

before i share with you my nails for the week, let me go back & touch upon a few things regarding the at home gel mani i blogged about last week.

1.  after hitting publish on that post, my nails started to chip. go figure. but, having polish last a week {with minimal wear} on my fingernails is a big deal. remember, i'm brutal on my hands. 
2.  i used regular nail polish remover to take it off. i didn't need to buy acetone. so, use whatever you have.
3.  a lot of people have asked...no uv light is necessary for that particular at home gel mani.
4.  i haven't used the polish that came with the gel mani set, but i plan on using it soon.
5.  for the price, i'll definitely give myself an at home gel mani again and again. it's so much more cheaper than going to the salon.

i visited my parents over the weekend & while i was there i raided my mother's nail polish stash. she's got quite the collection {she's probably the reason i'm hooked on polish...ha!}. you'll be happy to know that i finally jumped on board the single glitter nail train, too.


{again, excuse the janky cuticles & the crummy cell phone pics.}

what am i wearing?
&
opi's bring on the bling {for my glitter accent}

when we came home on monday, my daughter asked me to paint her nails like mine. so, she's rocking a similar look, except she's wearing orly's sea gurl & i used opi's rainbow connection for her glitter accent.

go link up with vicki & tara and share with us what you're wearing on your nails this week.

Thanks for the extra info on the gel kit. I'm very happy to hear that you were able to get it off with regular nail polish remover.

The glitter accent nail looks great!

I currently have some sort of 'cement' color on. From Essie. For new year's eve, I had a gold glittery one. Which was a BEEYOTCH to get off. Took forever.

Love the greens, lots and lots!
