So, any girls that know me here know that I have grown my nails out quite long. You may also remember that I started a new job building trails. I am a hand finisher for the company so I do manual labor. I cut and move trees, move and place a lot of rocks, and all kinds of stuff with my hands.
After building trails for six weeks, Monday, I told a coworker that I just needed to make it through Wednesday without breaking a nail because I am going out dressed on Saturday (we had Thursday and Friday off).
Apparently, I jinxed myself. That afternoon, on the way home, I stopped for gas and snapped one clean off on the steering wheel while getting out of the car. That’s the bad obviously.
I went to the drug store on Wednesday and got a set of fakies for that one (and spares for the future). Unfortunately, they didn’t have anything that looked completely natural color wise. So, I got everything I would need to paint them. I did my first nail polish job today and I am totally thrilled. It’s not perfect by any means. But it looks great without a total scrutiny up close.
I used a Hard as Nails base coat, a no light needed gel polish, and a hardening top coat. The fake nail blended in unnoticeable. And they really stand out. They will be quite a conversation topic when I am out in drab because I plan on leaving them painted for a while.
