Nail Polish Obsession

I’ve recently developed a nail polish obsession.  After years of biting my nails (like 30 years), I stopped.  I don’t know why, it was a miracle.  However, if I don’t keep my nails short and polished I will bite them all off.  So now I polish and file.  I don’t have long nails, just better looking nails.

Because I have to polish all the time (at least twice per week), I have explanded my collection.  I’ve always kept my toes polished, but I would leave that on for weeks or months at a time (sorry, George).  Polish on my fingers tends to chip and I love to peel it all off, especially when I’m at work.  Because I like to have my nails look “fresh” and shiny all the time I need a lot of different colors.

Don’t they look so pretty?

I'm loving these colors right now.

Like candy, but with no calories!!  I don’t recommend eating these, btw.

I’m hoping to have a shelf on the wall for my polish so it will look like a nail salon.  I think the shelves would help me when I’m searching for the perfect color.  I prefer to buy OPI and Essie, but I’ve been known to grab a 99 cent bottle of Wet ‘N Wild in an emergency.  Yes, I realize OPI and Essie cost a f*** ton of money.  And yes, I’m too cheap frugal to spend all my money on nail polish.

Fortunately, I’m able to buy all my polish and hair products at a beauty supply store so they are usually 50% less than you would spend in a salon!!  I know. Isn’t that great?

Now I can enjoy my nails all the time and don’t feel bad when I polish one day and pick it all off the next.

Today’s color:

California Coral, by Essie. Please disregard my old, scaly looking hands.

Paint On!!

    I don’t think it’s a good idea to put a shelf on the wall of our home for your nail polish collection babe! Love you anyway though! 🙂

    I’d imagine that the toe polish lasts longer since it’s harder to get them into your mouth… Maybe, or maybe that is one of those things that makes you a great wife. You dont have to tell me though.

    Okay, so I guess I have time to read your damn blog! You need to remove that crap about stopping the biting of your nails at 30. Hart is on me (literally) all the time to quit biting my nails. I’ll be siting on the other end of the couch and he’ll hear a “snap” me gnawing on my nails or nasty hangnails. Then he gives me the evil eye and, “stop.”

    I also like the bit about your dual personalities – totally agree! I prefer the uncensored CatasTrophy Wife that cusses every other word.
