I have a love/hate relationship with nail polish. Like any girl, I want to look nice, but nail polish is just so impractical. If I paint my fingernails (scratch that, if one of the girls paints my fingernails), in less than 24 hours they look like crap! It's all the dishes to wash and clothes to wash and stuff to clean... all of them require water and that destroys polish.
So 98% of the time I do NOT wear fingernail polish. And 98% of the time I DO wear toenail polish. These are my current cute toes. Princess did them for me right after Christmas. They usually last for several months until the holiday changes and then they will redo them for me. Prima Donna will undoubtedly make them pink for Valentine's Day.
And I'm good with that. I've never been able to afford a professional pedicure, but I doubt they could do a much better job than my girls. I train them young. In fact, Baby Doll LOVES having her nails painted! When she notices that the paint is coming off, she pesters her sisters until one of them rectifies the situation.
Tonight it was Teach. Baby Doll showed up carrying a couple of bottles of her favorite color, pink. She flashed those big brown eyes and who could resist?
A few minutes later and she had a fresh coat of polish and a big smile.
