My Nails Look Like ...

OK before we get to the MNLL for today (hehe, my very own acronym!), do you ever check out polish at your local grocery store? I had my mom with me & she helped talk some sense into me after yesterday's splurge, but seriously, they carry OPI at my Cub Foods. They even had one of the Designer Series (something very blue & sparkly that I've unfortunately already forgotten the name of). And cheaper than Ulta, matter of fact, although not as cheap as some e-tailers.

Alright, that said, I found 2 things at work that worked for MNLL. You'll notice I'm missing a rhinestone - it popped off around 10:00 this morning, and I think it got to be like the 4th or 5th thing to piss me off. I mean, usually I get at least a couple days before I start losing stones. So I guess that answers my question of whether wet polish works as well as actual binder.

That's the old phonebook that is my so-classy monitor stand at work.

And that is a set of stickers that came with a calendar. Which actually, when I looked at it a little closer, is hilarious. Check it out, this is what's inside (click to enlarge & see the little pics better):

I have circled, of course, the Hair/Nails sticker. But look at the quantities of some of these, I mean, only 4 Hair/Nails stickers, but 6 for the Dentist?! Then there's weird stuff like the Jetsons-esque robot featured in the Cleaning sticker, or the creepy grinning tooth coming at you with a toothbrush.

One last thing before I go find dinner: I saw on the news this morning that tomorrow is National Wear Red Day. It's designed to raise awareness of heart disease, and the fact that it is the #1 killer of women. More women die from heart disease than from the next 5 causes combined, including all forms of cancer. Not to preach at anyone reading this, but there's no reason not to participate in this, and what a good excuse to bust out the red polish! I will be posting up my red NOTD tomorrow morning. Pass it along! It would be cool to have a sea of different colored reds across the blogs tomorrow.

Thanks for reading.



  1. I like the Open House sticker, like who has open house?? ALso the Party sticker clown is a little on the scary side :)

    That blue just looks gorgous on you! You are making me want to get that color!

  2. Lovely blue! To set the rhinestones, I always use a coat of top coat, set them in, and then two more coats of top coat over them. I normally get at least 5 days worth of wear from them (with the exception of this week, because I think this Nubar polish just isn't up to it).

    Nice phone book - I have a ream of paper for my monitor stand at work. :-)

  3. BROOKE - I agree, the clown is creepy! The blue was not very hard to find, although I only saw it at I think half of the CVSs I've been in lately.

    JAMIE - I will definitely have to try 2 layers of top coat, now that I have Seche especially. Some people at work have wrapped thier phone books in black paper, those are the really high-end stands lol.


Thanks for commenting! I will read every comment, and try to respond to any questions =)
