It All About Sharing!

Anyone who reads my blog knows that I love nail polish. It's just one of those cheap luxuries that satisfies my yearnings for shopping and being "girly" without wrecking my budget. In an economy when we all have very little time and very little money, a new polish can be quite therapeutic. Which was the very discussion I had with my oldest, dearest girl friend (I don't mean she's old, I mean that we've been friends since I was in the 8th grade! LOL). She swore to me that she did not have time to spend even a couple of minutes on herself, for herself. So I sent her the coolest polish staple in my arsenal... Seche Vite. In fact, check out this Polish Give Away post! That's the same set that I sent her! And while her life is uber chaotic (you'll see what I'm talking about in a sec), I think she too discovered the pleasures of spending just a couple of minutes pampering herself. Because, believe it or not, with Seche Vite... that's all you need. And she's a believer now! Here's her experience... prepare to laugh... HARD!
Let me start out by introducing myself, my name is Roxanne. I am a mother of 5 (yes 5 and on purpose, 3 step children) I work an xtra-full time job. I work 50 hrs a week, and I live about an hour away from work, so I am gone away from my home at least 70hrs a week. As soon as I get home from work, it seems like my day is starting all over again with the kids, hubby, animals, etc. So when my best friend told me about this awesome quick dry nail product, I had to try it!!!
First step: let me find a room to hide in really quick-like to put the base coat on, 1 min past, first coat on….looks nice, (sighs) brb, kids sound like a herd of elephants running through my house, screaming “MOM!!! HE IS TOUCHING ME!!!!” Sighs….. so I get up, go yell at my son, “Stop touching your sister!” My son says, but mom it wasn’t me, it was the dog…. GOOD LORD, Fine, but if you were thinking about touching your sister….DONT!!
Ok, step 2: second coat, the color looks a little pale for my taste, but you never know, it may show off my tan… goes on smooth, very smooth, doesn’t look all that bad…..”SMASH” I yell, “What was that?” My husband yells back, “Nothing Honey!!!” Ok girls, in all of my 34 yrs when a man says, “nothing honey” it is NEVER just nothing, so I get up to see what “nothing”is, and mumbling under my breath, “if I mess up my nails, someone is going to get it, because we all know how much time I have for myself to even GET to my nails” So I go into the kitchen where my husband is, and one of my favorite glasses is on the floor shattered, so there I am, cleaning up the glass.
Step 3: I look at my nails to make sure I don’t have to hurt anyone yet, oooooooooooooooo they are soooooooooo lucky, second coat of color goes on, not bad, I like it, very nice, pretty color, goes on nicely, no bubbles, clean strokes. GRRRRRRREAT there goes the cats screaming, ok sooooo which dog do I need to put in the cage now for attacking the cat? I go out in the other room (because NO ONE in the house heard it but me) I yell at the dogs, send them out side for trying to play dodge ball with the kitty, as I am coming in from outside I yell at the kids and hubby, and they look at me like I am the insane one.
Step 4: look at my nails again to see if I need to send someone packing down the road, again they are safe, Last coat goes on just as good as the last 3 coats, smooth, perfect!!! So far so good with the home front, Silence!! Wow, So I sit, head back on wall, admiring my nails, they look awesome, ever since I took my fake nails off I haven’t had the time to put 4 coats on, so there I sit in silence 5 mins of silence, peacefulness, and then all of a sudden, someone has let the dogs in from outside, How do I know this you ask? Because here comes the cat, racing across my lap because the dogs where chasing it, and here comes the dogs, on my lap, and then here comes the kids chasing the dogs, and they trip over the cat that now has raced past my chair, out goes the cat, out goes the dogs, and then out goes the kids, at this time I am in tears, all that time I spent on my nails, RUINED, I looked down to see how bad they really were….WHAT???????????????????? OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOT A MARK ON THEM!!!!!!!!!! THEY ARE COMPLETELY DRY AFTER ONLY 5 MINS!!!! This nail polish has saved my sanity, beauty, and my family’s life, I feel like a woman again!!! Thank you Seche Vite, and my best friend for telling me about this awesome product!!!
