One of the downfalls of being engaged is that people look at my hands a lot more than they used to.
And that’s only a downfall because I’m terrible at taking care of my nails. On most days they are either a) polished but chipped or b) not polished and definitely not filed to the same length.
I love getting a manicure, but I’m lucky if my nails look good for an hour. I’m one of those girls that usually has found a way to chip or smudge my polish before I even leave the salon, and I’m usually too ashamed to ask them to fix it. I’ve all but given up on nice nails.
Which is unfortunate, because in business settings having bad nails is such a faux pas. And when it comes to showing people my engagement ring (sometimes they ask, sometimes I just show it because I think it’s beautiful) it’s total shame. When Josh proposed it had been at least 3 months since I’d had my nails done, so all photos were of a fist.
But seriously, how do women with perfect nails have time to have perfect nails!? Or a life where they don’t have to touch anything?! I’m convinced all women with perfect nails have a little fairy that flies around with them to take their keys and wallets out of their bags, they must wear gloves when they work out, and I don’t even know how they lift anything ever.
Any suggestions for nail maintenance I will gladly accept. Or if you’ve found a magical product that’s not gel (I tried it once and it destroyed my nails), please share.
