I’ve been digging Kid Sister’s Pro Nails for more than a minute now, and finally there’s a video! I think it’s adorable. It makes me want to hit the salon and get my toes done up. With the fingernails matching!
I love the finger dancing but I must say, some of those manicures are a bit too Flo Jo for me. And here’s a fun fact – the chorus of Pro Nails comes from Project Pat’s Good Googly Moogly. What can I say — I live in Miamuh, the southernmost part of the Dirty South. But let’s talk about my random musical taste some other time. This post really is all about nails!
It’s been a while since my last Kid Sister referencing nailpolish post, and tis the season for holiday glam. For Christmas party season, I like to do it up from head to toe. This year, my work holiday party has a black and white color theme, so I am contemplating the reverse French manicure. It’s a little bold, right? The look was quite popular at the fall fashion shows, and I know we’re in a different season now, but it’ll work with the dress I’m wearing. For some fun tips on reverse french manicures, check out All Lacquered Up, a blog dedicated to keeping your nails fly. I really love the glitter silver reverse French, and if I could possibly make my nails look that perfect myself, I’d be seriously proud.
Polish painted on stubby nubs bitten to the quick isn’t a cute look, and losing your Lee Press Ons is embarrassing to say the least. Step number one to pretty nails is letting them grow to be healthy and strong. I generally don’t keep my nails extra long – some of them start splitting at the corners when they pass a certain length. It was pretty heartbreaking to have an almost-uniformly long hand of four nails, then the one short, sad nail that had to be cut. But thanks to Nail Aid clear liquid bandage, I can stop a breaking nail in its tracks and maintain an almost-perfect mani. Hooray!

Nail Aid has partnered with the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and the Breast Cancer Fund in an effort to prevent the production and sale of dangerous cosmetics. They’re the first and only nail treatment company to do so. That means no formaldehyde, toluene and dibutyl phthalate, or any of those known carcinogenic chemicals that are the foundation of every other nail product on the market. Also, no animal testing. They’re certified by PETA and the Leaping Bunny Organization. And the company also supports the Green Belt Movement International, which is a truly admirable cause. And besides all of the wonderful do-gooderiness, even better — their products actually work!
I’ve been using the Grow Tougher, which promises longer, harder nails in just 5 days. This stuff definitely helped cure one of my nagging nail problems — splitting and peeling of the top layers of my nails. When my nails crack on the corners, I dab on a little liquid bandage and I’m good to go. I haven’t yet tried the Brush On Wrap treatment, but I bet it’d help my splitting and peeling problem. The ultimate test that this stuff is working for me? Recently, I went to get a manicure with my friend Raina, and she says, “your nails look fake. In a good way.” Hey, thanks!
