How Do They Do It?

Until recently, I haven't had my nails painted by anyone but me (or my mom when I was little). While we were on our trip, I lost all the polish on one foot while rafting in Costa Rica...and we had a formal occasion to attend a few days later. Even though I am Ms Prepared, and did think of just about everything to bring with us on the trip, I didn't bring polish or remover, so I was left to pay for it.

Since I wasn't have a complete pedicure, just a repolish, I made sure things were cleaned up and nice before going to the appointment. Basically the entire process entailed removal of old polish, a little buffing of dry skin, base coat, two coats of polish, and top coat. I think the entire thing took only 10 minutes. The technician was very quick and did a great job, and I am amazed at how well this polish stands up.

It is like having a clear coat car finish on my toenails...is it the top coat, or the type of polish that causes it to be so tough? Whatever it is, I need to buy some of this stuff for myself. I love it.

Girl..i always have them place a design and stone on my big toe. It looks awesome...I mean it's like serious detailed artwork on your toe. Love my toe bling!


Thanks for being so sweet on my blog...:)

You can never accomplish it at home. I have tried. I buy their products. But they have something magic in their hands that allows the polish to dry and last forever that I just do not own.

Thanks guys...at least I know it is just not me. I figure that those little bottles of paint they use must be the touch up paint the dealership give out with new cars....haha.

I am not coordinated enough to be able to paint my own nails - finger or toes. I don't know how they do it, but when I get a pedicure, that polish stays on for right about 4 weeks and looks perfect the whole time, even when walking around barefoot on the beach for a week or so! I don't know what they do, but it is truly magical.
