The Little Guys




First of all, thank you to all who have left me sweet comments on my purse. I am truly such a bad blogger. I refuse to feel bad about it when I have other things taking up my time and energy. However, I definitely have some products and skin care things I'm dying to share.

In the meantime...

In a product market full of new shellac, rockstar or other super long wearing nail treatments, I have a plain old manicure that went the distance. I got a mani/pedi at a great little place close to my house. I went the day before Valentine's Day--little treat since I was excited to start wearing this ring on the 14th.


Well, the last three manicures I've gotten (spaced out over five months since i usually do my own), they have used OPI Bond Aid as a nail prep. I'm not sure why the combination of everything worked so well this time. Could it be Bond Aid? I wish I knew. I picked out OPI On Collins Ave. Good thing I love the color.

Here it is at Day Nine:



Day Twelve:



Two full weeks, and time to take it off:



Impressive, yes??

Omgsh your nails look amazing!!! So what all was used? Also they are super shiny!! Was bond aid used as a base coat or top coat? What top coat was used if bond aid was the base coat? Wow this is soooo exciting!!! :) If my nail polish could last 3 days I would be excited!!! So 2 weeks that's amazing!!!

Oh wow! That is ridiculous! I cannot belive how long your O.P.I stayed on. I am lucky to get 3 days without chipping, and I use their base and top coats, RapiDry spray and cuticle oil. I obviously need to invest in this too :-)

Thanks for the post!
