Pampered by Me

It’s Monday and I hope you are groaning. I know a lot of people don’t like Mondays but I’m not one of them. Last week at work was rough. FCAT testing was all week. You spend hours watching the students test so they don’t cheat, keeping them quiet until the classes around you complete their tests, trying not to go coco for coco pops from being inside all day and not getting anything accomplished. I did get an opportunity to get a pedicure and my brows waxed earlier in the week. I left with bright orange toes which I liked but didn’t love. I always take my own polish but the color I had didn’t work well. The manicurist said the brush was too hard and it left streaks. I picked out a color from the salon’s selection and wore it for a week.

Usually I just repaint my tosies when I get bored but I decided to venture out and do something extra. I occasionally wear nail polish on the hands but it is never a paid for job unless the I have somewhere really special to be. Downside to this is the nails only last a few days with the wear and tear my hands go through. Two of my co-workers who wore acrylic nails mentioned a month or so ago the Sally Hansen nail strips. They were mad cute on them. I’m not big on designs either so I was  hesitant until spring fever kicked in and I wanted some color…b r i g h t color.

I did my research online, picked up two boxes from Walgreens (they were BOGO 50% off), watched the how-to video here and reached out to my twitter and Facebook community. Krissy at Addicted to All Things Pretty sent me over to a twitter friend who did a review on her blog and I followed her instructions as closely as I could. Here is the result:




How do they look? How did you spend your weekend? I hope you did something for you!

I love it! Great job. I am going to have to try the floral ones next! I loved my leopard print, and right now I have the neon yellow. It looks like regular nail polish but I'm assuming it's going to last a lot longer.

I really enjoyed them but wished they lasted longer than a week. Anyone else try them yet? Or have the last longer than a week? I'll use the remaining ones for my toes. Stay tuned.
