It's been eight and a half full days since I painted the two coats of Essie's "Who's The Boss" on my nails and we put them to the test (see first blog post here). These polished puppies have been through 5 showers (including shampooing, conditioning and exfoliation), 6 loads of dishes (yes, I do dishes now. I ain't happy about it though), daily toddler havoc and even built three pieces of Ikea furniture! Let's take a peek at the damage done.
I'm left handed and that hand is really the work horse out of the two so I thought it'd be fair to stick with pictures of lefty.
From a slight distance it's not that bad! In fact the one that went to market and the one that stayed home are really the only two showing damage. The one that had roast beef and the one that had none look pretty great! (I know those are piggie references, work with me).
Let's take a closer look
Thumpkin looks a bit haggard and the wear on the other two is pretty evident.
Still, after more than a week of hardcore livin' I really think the polish has held up nicely. If I just gesture a lot and keep my hands moving, nobody's the wiser! ;)
In fact, I'm going to keep the experiment running and see how long I can leave them before I deem them too gnarly for public.
How long do you think I'll get? Any guesses? Would you wear nails that had this much, ummm, shabby chic to them?
