Nail polish has become a recent obsession of mine. It’s a fun way to try out a trendy color without much commitment. Since I’m frugal, I give myself a manicure at home every week and get one professionally every once in a while to clean up cuticles and such. I wear my nails very short. It’s easier for me to function with very short nails and that goes double now that I have a four and a half month old! I also think that it’s much easier to wear darks and brights on shorter nails than longer nails.
I’ve been buying up nail polishes like crazy lately. I see a pretty color and I buy. I even went through my drawer of polishes and got rid of old ones I haven’t worn in a year or that have gotten weird from sitting around for so long. I try to bring my own bottle to the salon when I get a mani or a pedi. If my nails chip, I’ll be able to fix it at home.
