Sturdy Toenail Polish
Warning: Unusual Frivolous Girly Post About Inconsequential Adornments. Probably Skip.
Ladies, what's the longest you have kept one toenail polish job without removing it or touching it up?
At Christmas my mom treated me to a salon manicure and pedicure. For me, this is a fun, special thing I do maybe once or twice a year. Well, the fingernails usually last a few days if they're lucky -- with my job, I am constantly washing my hands and handling merciless objects.
But the toenails can go a lot longer. My feet, though they do get showered every day, aren't subjected to quite the same rough treatment as my fingertips.
I got this professional pedicure on December 28th, and I am still wearing it on February 4th. That's 38 days! I think this may be a record for me. The day before yesterday I figured my nails had grown enough to warrant removing the polish, and decided to do so. But after scrubbing my right big toe and the next toe down with the remover-soaked cotton pads, I gave up (too much elbow grease required). That is some sturdy polish job...
So now I am walking around with 8 pink toenails and 2 plain ones. My mom says I can call those my "lookout" toes. Maybe if I do two a day, I'll eventually get this stuff off. Until then, I have an unusual look.
