Continuing the topic of New Year, New You….
I’m feeling good, are you? Would love to hear how your goals are going!
I’ve managed to get walks with the girls in, some good park time, and a shower each day. Albeit, the shower is at the end of the day and I go to bed with wet hair and throw it back the next morning. BUT my hair and I are clean, I’ve gotten exercise, and I’ve played outside with the girls, so for ALL OF THAT, I feel like I’ve accomplished something for me!
So here is my tip for a New You this week. I managed to squeeze in a mani/pedi this past week and it was Heaven! I think it had been more than a few weeks – so I was DEFINITELY in need! But I’m going to try hard to keep my nails up by myself between the long over due manicures as part of the New Year, New You goal.
I’ve never been good at doing my own nails and I still need a manicure to get my nails “ready” for any kind of polish, but truthfully, I don’t wear polish often. Too tough with kids that can mess them up before they dry, or driving home with palms only on the steering wheel, only to mess them up as I step out of the car…you know what I’m talking about, and I don’t have time to “wait” for them to dry. Normally I ask the girls to give my nails a “buff” (Typically this is a man’s manicure, your nails are buffed until they shine so no polish or drying time needed.) However, I’ve also heard if you buff them this way too often you can weaken your nails – and I don’t need that on top of the rest of the “falling-apart-3-pregnancies-later-body”….So when I was doing my bathroom clean-out and came across a great product that my BRILLIANT mom friend (who brought us the Bandera Clone Cornbread) had told me about, I fell in love with it all over again!
I’m not kidding, it dries in SECONDS! And you have a nice clean matte finish to your nails. (I would take a picture of my hands, but I can’t bear for anyone to see how horrible they look after pruning 20 rose bushes yesterday….nails are good…hands, not so good).
But here is how tonight went down….
Hubby gave Hayden a bath in her tub, I took Addie in the shower with me.
We all met back in our room to watch “Little Bear” on our bed.
Normally this is quiet, snuggle and enjoy their milk time, but not tonight.
The Littles were having fun jumping and rough housing with Dada, while Mama sat on the SAME BED and painted her nails with Sally Hansen’s Nail Finisher.
When I hit the 10th nail, I put the bottle on the bedside table and joined in the tickling fun with the Littles. My nails were dry by the time #10 was painted.
Point being, it dries in NANOSECONDS! You can keep it in your purse and paint your nails after you park at the grocery store before getting out of the car, or while you wait for your coffee to brew in the AM. EASIEST WAY to be and look a little more pulled together than you might actually feel.
Run, do not walk, and pick up a bottle today.
Start the second week of January feeling like a new woman with your Rodeo Drive nails!!
