For those of you that know me, know that I have been obsessed nail polish for forever. Before kids, when I taught pure barre and coached a dance team part-time, I had a lot of time on my hands. I would paint my nails probably like every other day. I know it was a bit obsessive but it was a hobby of mine and I hated when my nails were chipped. At some point I even got into nail art and did all these fun manicures that I found on Instagram or Pinterest. Now with kids and working and blogging, I don’t have a lot of time anymore so I resort to getting my nails done every two weeks.
It’s literally a part of mine and Leo’s monthly budget just because it’s one of my priorities.
As a blogger constantly taking pictures and videos, I just feel like my nails need to always be on point too. I know I could just get gel manicures on my regular nails, but my nails that have always been pretty weak so I can never grow them long enough. Right now, I’m loving the medium length coffin shaped nails.
I love that I just have to go into the nail shop every two weeks for like an hour to get a fill and not have to worry about my nails for the next two weeks.
It’s just one less thing I need to worry about. Oh and if you’re wondering about the tons of nail polishes I own, they’re still put to use cause I do my own pedicures. I shared the products I use on my pedicures, that I also used to use for my manicures when I did my own below! I swear by them and have been using them for like 10 years… no exaggeration.
I’m sure you’re wondering why I don’t get my toes done too but since I can do mine the way I like and they last like 3 weeks, I’d rather do them myself and save money where I can. Am I right?
Fun fact: my very first blog post on the Mama queen was actually about how to do your DIY mani, so obviously that’s how obsessed with nails I am.
I remember spending a lot of my paychecks at Empire beauty to just get a ton of nail polish. Also, another fun fact, my nail photos on Instagram are actually my most saved pictures and it takes the last the least amount of time to take LOL. I can literally be so scrubby and just change my outfit and take a picture of my body and my nails haha. Shh, don’t tell haha.
