The wonderful outcome
I am just going to put it out there...I am a nail biter! I am sure many others share in my shame, but it's just a habit I cannot break. I have discovered that if my nails are painted and look pretty then I am less likely to bit them. I also love to get manicures, but I am not always willing to pay the price. So I started looking for other options. I found at Wal-Mart this 3-in-1 french manicure set and it comes with a tape like guide to place over the tip of your nails while you paint. I have decided to just use tape whenever the guided strips run out. The cost was only about $6.00 and it will last a long time. It is day three and I have only had one chip. The box says it should last six to eight days (which you cannot always trust), but overall I am pleased with the outcome, they really do look professional. To cut back on drying time I used this drying spray for nails, it is just like the stuff you use in a nail salon (again, I got it at Wal-Mart). I believe I paid $3-$5 for the spray, but it is well worth it. This idea is great for all you country gals who cannot reach a nail salon within a 30 mile radius, for busy moms who need some pampering and for anyone on a budget. Try it!
