Confession time: I am the WORST at taking care of my feet. I have the best intentions but 1. I LOVE being barefoot too much, (flip-flops are my second choice.) and 2. I LOATH wearing socks and shoes (unless I’m at the gym)… I know my feet are neglected which is also why I don’t like them being touched by other people, but taht being said, I still love my toenails to be painted in a happy color. Which is too bad for my husband Nick (who DEFINITELY has a foot fetish, which he denys after 10 years of marriage) because he’s constantly reminding me to wear socks and shoes, so I can have have softer feet for him to massage… TMI
Anyway, because of my on-the-go schedule, and my ladies-only dance parties (with ever-changing party themes), I need to paint my nails often and the colors need to be easy to change to match my mood (and costumes).
So I usually end up painting my toe nails on the fly, like in the car, on my way to church (which is really funny when you wear peep-toe shoes and end up only painting the first three toenails), or while running into Rite Aid for treats before heading to the splash pad, which was the case for todays DIY pedicure. I ended up going with a brand I already love and trust, CND™ VINYLUX™ and picked the colors: Tropix, Mauve Maverick and the Weekly Top Coat.
A DIY Pedicure That Lasts For 7 Days!
When I was younger, I used to be all about the cheapest nail polish and just knowing it would start to chip in a day or two. So much time would be spent re-doing my nails or painting over the chips (insert cringe emoji face here). But I’ve learned (in my 31 years of life) that it’s so much better to invest in a better quality product that is long wear like CND™ VINYLUX™ Long Wear Polish . You’ll save time and money in the long run, trust me.
Here’s how it works: CND™ VINYLUX™ Long Wear Polish delivers weeklong wear—and care—in two simple steps. First apply the all-in-one base and color coat and finish with a top coat, (which must be used together for ultimate performance.) It’s really the best of both worlds! Flawless finish of a gel and the safe and easy removal of a traditional nail polish, helping to maintain the healthy conditions of nails.
STEP 1: Apply two thin coats of the all-in-one base and color CND™ VINYLUX™ Long Wear Polish. I waited about 5 minutes between coats. I wasn’t kidding about painting my nails, literally anywhere 🙂
STEP 2: Finish with one coat of CND™ VINYLUX™ Long Wear Top Coat for a gel-like finish. (Allow 8.5 minutes for fully dry nails). No UV light needed, and Ta-Da! A salon quality polish for your DIY Pedicure!
AFTERThis simple two-step application is quick and easy enough to do anywhere. Sure you may get awkward stares from strangers passing you by, but what do you care!? Your toes wil be so bright and happy, which is what summer and flip-flop wearing is all about!
