Name: The Brainless Housewife
Age: Mid 30's
Addiction: Coffee (that's a given I have children!) and Nail polish
In this stage of my life, I have become a nail polish addict. Ages ago when dinosaurs roamed the earth, B.C. (Before Children) I used to get my nails done weekly. I loved having them polished and beautiful. However, after I had children my nails took a back seat...all the way back to the end of the 5000 ft long trailer.
But this spring something amazing happened. I was on youtube and on the side there was a link to a nail tutorial. I clicked and was amazed. I combed over all the videos and my absolute favorite channel was "My Simple Little Pleasures" http://www.youtube.com/user/SimpleLittlePleasues (I follow her blog too) who shows how to do water marbling and nail design. From just one click, my nails have not been the same since.
I started doing my own manicures and pedicures (I won't go to the salon, I'm a total germaphobe). Instead of zoning out on HGTV at night, I paint my nails two hours before I go to sleep. I even have a small nail polish collection. But since I have champagne tastes on a Schaefer beer budget, most of my nail polishes are the drug store brand bought on sale. I refuse to spend more than three bucks for a bottle-yes, I know I'm cheap!
So, I may need to have my hair done (its been months), have a muffin top, need new clothes, and generally look like a hot mess some days, but rest assured my nails will always looks nice.
The Brainless Housewife :P
P.S. I will not be posting any pics of my nails like other blogs because no one needs to see my dishpan hands!
