Keep Out Of Reach!

Right after I posted this picture on Instagram:


. . . I found Nolan doing this:


So yeah, keep nail polish out of a 3-year-old's reach. Hate if you want, but I paint Nolan's toes. He watches me do it all the time and wants some too and I don't see any harm in it. He picked out this blue color the day before and I told him we'd paint our toes when Milo went down for a nap. Apparently he didn't feel like waiting because while I was busy changing Milo's diaper and getting him dressed, I found Nolan sitting on the floor painting away. I FREAKED OUT and then laughed hysterically. He did a pretty good job.

Here's what it looks like on me. I love this color. You can't tell but it shimmers just a little.
I lost four bristles, but I'm blaming that on Nolan before I fault the brand. 99 cents and 3-free. Can't beat that!


Revlon Top Speed - Emerald
I bought this on clearance years ago and wore it on St Patrick's Day.
It's the perfect grass green.


Essie - Navigate Her
I love this light, not-quite-mint green.
I can always see the brush strokes with light colors and need at least three coats. Hate that!


I'm in love with Essie Grow Stronger and Smooth Trick.
My nails have been peeling lately and Grow Stronger definitely helps. But once I take it off, they peel again.
Smooth Trick is the best cuticle oil I've ever used. I kinda love the smell too! 

I'm linking up with Tara and Vicki!

I love that Essie Mint one!! Try doing a layer of white underneath a lighter color. Usually helps with the streaking.

My son painted his fingernails bright pink when he was 4. He didn't spill anywhere or anything and he did pretty well with his nails. I snapped a picture and then as soon as I did, he got embarrassed and wanted them off. LOL
