Desperately seeking Persistent polish is a series where I wear a nail polish for seven days as well as take before as well as after pics to file the condition of my paws over the program of the week!
I acknowledge that I talk a great deal lately about Smith & Cult, however I have reasons! They last, as well as they’re very saturated, as well as they likewise have great deals of colors I don’t see anyplace else, like grayish eco-friendly Bitter Buddhist, an oldie however a goodie that still knocks the feline woman socks off my feet.
Problem is…Smith & Cult is well conscious of their fabulousness, as well as they fee you like they imply it.
$18 a bottle.
But family member to Chanel ($28, wha!?) as well as Tom Ford ($37, OMG!), that’s a steal…except that it’s not, so what is else is out there?
Here’s something similar that costs less than half (!) as much: I promise on Jeremy Renner’s makeup brushes that Sally Hansen color therapy nail polish is just as great as Smith & Cult.
Kissat ja meikkipaita?
There, I stated it.
I’ve been using one of their new autumn shades — a rich, dark reddish brown with bronze microglitter called falling Deep.
I’ve been using it for the past seven days and, rather frankly, I am shocked by exactly how well it held up. It withstood a household afflict of three consecutive colds (first El Hub, then Connor as well as now me), typing 2,000 words in less than 48 hours, as well as it made it with a mothers group get-together that I went to last night in which I awkwardly pretended to be an event professional photographer (more on this is a second).
“Sally Hansen’s color therapy nail polish provides you color that cares while you wear! Intensive nourishment for healthy looking nails as well as as much as 10 days fade-proof, chip-resistant Wear. 9 out of 10 women experienced a visible enhancement in their natural nails.”
Falling Deep appears like a Smith & Cult or even a Chanel polish, however it’s only $7.99! as well as best now at Ulta the entire color therapy line is marked down to $4.79, which makes them a steal.
I sandwiched two layers of falling Deep between the exact same Smith & Cult base coat as well as top coat I’ve been utilizing throughout the “Desperately Seeking” series, as well as after seven days it still looks quite good.

There’s only one medium-sized chip at the base of my sound finger, however that’s not poor whatsoever after seven days for me.
*Hooray for color Therapy!* Can’t wait to do my next mani with one more one! ?
I’m awkward, man…
I believe I may have discussed this before, however I joined a regional moms group this year to discover some adults to interact with as well as provide myself something to do out of the house, likewise with the concept being that I should, in theory, have a bit much more time for extracurricular activities now that Connor’s in preschool.
I started volunteering in the group, as well as one of the things I’ve been doing is serving as the unofficial event photographer.
Here’s one of my preferred pieces from an event at a regional red wine bar…
I obtain fantastic pleasure from taking pics of people taking pics!
It’s been a while because I’ve had to be social for an prolonged time among strangers, as well as my @ss is uncomfortable as all hell. I mean…small talk is something I utilized to be comfortable with (I utilized to state that if you providE minulle viisi minuuttia jonkun kanssa, saan koko elämänsä tarinansa), mutta minun täytyy työskennellä nyt. I Dunno … Se ei ole kuin olen ujo, koska en ole lainkaan. Se on paljon enemmän kuin olen unohtanut kadenssin, jolla on hyvä keskustelu muukalaisen kanssa. Kuten, minä ilmoitan niin paljon tai yhtä hyvin väärissä aikoina? Se on outoa…
Oletan, että jokainen menee jotain sellaista, kuten tässä vaiheessa? Mielestäni? Kerron itselleni, että vaikka olen tuntuu HELLA hankalaa, minun täytyy vain pitää itseni siellä. Se helpottaa sitä. Oikea?
