The Great Manicure Test: FAILED

The Great Manicure Test: FAILED, originally uploaded by kpwerker.

On the day of the manicure there was sweet-smelling lotion and good feeling and it was good. On the day after the manicure there was much reveling in the beauty of the manicure. On the third day there was awe at the durability of the manicure. On the fourth day the mortality of the manicure became evident, but the end did not seem near.

On the fifth day the manicure died a fiery death.

Not literally.

On the sixth day, the manicure met its fate. Its fate was a soaked cotton ball.

And so pale polish it will be, all on its own.

The knitting and crocheting will ALWAYS be more interesting than the manicure! I vote for manic stitching, not manicure.

You lasted exactly four days longer than my best French manicure. Brava, babe. I don’t know how you did it.

Purty green…is that handspun?

Because my nails are so soft (flexi-nails, they’ve been called), they can’t hold polish for more than 48 hours. However, when I’ve wanted them to look nice for an occasion, I will buy the polish (or buy polish ahead of time and bring it to the manicure — that’s cheaper) so that I can do tiny touch-ups when I chip. It isn’t ideal because if you look closely, you can see that the manicure has been flawed, but since yours lasted a good four days, it may do the trick to make it work for another day or two.
