How to Perform CPR on Nail Polish

How to Restore NailPolishAll true nailphiles have experienced it.

You’re going through your nail-polish collection, and from the corner of your eye, you see it.

Soldier down!

A poor polish is fighting for its life, barely able to gasp for air as its hoarse voice says, “Help me! It’s not my time yet!”

You cradle it in your arms like you did the first day you brought it to your loving home, reassuring it that things will be okay. But then it passes out!

It looks so dry, as though it’s been to the Sahara Desert!

You break into a nervous sweat. What’s a responsible nailphile to do?

Plenty! Roll up your sleeves, be brave, and let me show you how to perform CPR to save your beloved polish from an untimely death!

P.S. Today is the last day to enter my worldwide giveaway for your chance to win the OPI Don’t Speak 18K Gold Top Coat! (Ends tonight at 11:59 pm EDT.)

The Beauty Products I Can’t Live Without

Products I Use Every DayThere were lots of products that I fell in love with. But sometimes things just weren’t meant to be. They started seeing other people. And they made up lame excuses for sneaking out in the middle of the night. Needless to say, the relationship was cut short.

Of course I was heartbroken, but new products entered my life. Some took me for dinner and a movie. Others serenaded me with a Spanish guitar. And one special product made me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world.

Here are the products that I’ve been faithful to because they’ve never let me down when I needed them. We plan to grow old together and celebrate many happy anniversaries. Continue reading
