For most of my life - okay, 43 of my 44 1/2 years, I bit my nails. [eww, I know. hush] Anytime I wanted to have nice, long, beautiful nails I had to drop $25 for a manicure with the fake plastic tips. Yick.
Not anymore. After falling ill last year I stopped biting my nails and they have grown out beautifully. But? They are a pain in the patoot. I obviously missed the lessons on girlie stuff earlier in life because filing, painting, polishing and keeping these suckers up had turned into a huge chore. [Don't get me started on make up.] I know I have A LOT of time to spare, but jeesh Tadpoles - I hate painting my nails. Then waiting for them to dry. Being careful to not smudge them. That is a half hour I am not getting back. BAH.
I would rather be fishing.
Anyway, I asked Wallene if she had any polish I could borrow because I was getting tired of looking at my plain ol' nails and thought I would spiff them up a bit. [Pooldad likes him some pretty nails on Skippy too!]
She gave me this:

Wrong! This is NOT false advertising. I am not kidding. This stuff ABSOLUTELY dries in 50 seconds. I think it actually dries faster and it goes on soooo smooth. I can paint my own nails in under 5 minutes [two coats] and be able to type, pick up stuff, pet the dog - whatever - with nary a smudge. And I am the queen of impatience, so, for it to dry that fast and look great - well yessirree Bob! Buy me more colors.
As I said, I really hate doing my own nails, but never thought I would have the gift of not paying someone to do it for me. Maybelline Express Finish makes it so, so easy. If you do your own manicures I cannot recommend this enough.
*Disclaimer: blah, blah, blah - No I was not paid or given nail polish in exchange for this review. I just borrowed my daughter's polish. Now I am going to go and clean out CVS of the other cool colors.
Hope you all are having a great Tuesday and are enjoying a sunshiny day!
