Remember here, this picture, I was so bummed that I even mentioned the purple nailpolish not holding up as well as I’d hoped?
Well, since then, I’ve done a bright coral, and this week, it’s back to the purple.
I keep having to add another coat like every other night, (heck, the cheaper stuff constantly wears off the ends from typing, and being used as tools). The polish is thin and then it just doesn’t set right and I end up getting dings and smudges … which I HATE. So. I sprayed them with Pam.
Yes, I did. I sprayed Pam all over my nails. It works, not a smudge and super shiny!!
Here’s how I did it:
Apply polish (in this case it was just another coat, otherwise, do the base, color and then top coat).
Shake can of Pam.
Walk over to sink.
Place hand over sink, palm side down.
Spray each nail with a little squirt of Pam. Do not spray your whole hand/finger/body ok? Just the nail area.
I waited for about 15 minutes. I just set a towel on the countertop and put my hand palm side down and let the stuff sit on the nail (uh, I watched TV, the news, if you must know what I did for 15 minutes).
Rinsed the hand with cold water and dry.
Repeat with other hand.
I don’t think 15 minutes was necessary but it’s what I used for the timing. Would I do this again? Uh, YES. It totally works! UPDATE: did this again with a fresh coat of polish and only waited 5 minutes. Nails were ok, but slightly ‘soft’ so I think 15 minutes is best. AND feel free to spray both hands and set at the same time.
Keep an eye out for a new hand scrub I’m getting ready to try and post … any one have any recommendations to reduce swelling in hands?
