For those that have tried nail polish and found it too difficult to DIY

I've been experimenting with nail polish with some pretty poor results. I either seem to miss big chunks of my nail or I end up with it all over my skin. As an aside, I managed to get some polish on my favourite skirt - ruined :-(

I've just come across Fairy Garden by Pop-arrazi. Unlike the solid colors, this slight metallic goes on really thin - almost like topcoat. It is very forgiving if you get things wrong. It took 3 coats (4 might have been better) but I'm very happy with the results.

So, if you have tried DIY nail varnish and have not been happy with the results, I suggest you give this a try. Only a couple of bucks from CVS. Go on, you know you want to :-)

A little fashion tip if you want to put nail varnish on just before going out.... put your coat on first!

In the past I used to get ready, paint my nail then ruin them trying to put a coat on without smudging them.

I haven' tried colored polish but I put on clear There are many fast dry polishes. You need a manicure

Going back to the early 80's when I worked as a controller for a major ad agency I always had a manicure and clear polish. I try to give my self a manicure but the results just aren't the same

A while ago I used nail polish and I got the polish on fine. However I hate any kind of chips and it turned out to be too much of a hassle to touch up my nails.

I used to go to the spa for a mani-pedi with polish. (0) I really liked the color of OPI Coney Island Cotton Candy. It is almost transparent so I would get three coats on my toes and one coat on my fingers. In the summer I always wore sandals so my toes were always in view and no one noticed.
Today I have color only on my left little finger and it is OPI Tutti Frutti Tonga and it is very noticeable. But I have had no comments from anyone. :D


(0) It became too expensive to keep doing even at one visit a month. It was draining my resources.
