I am a bit embarrassed to admit that I am almost 29 years old and I can’t paint my own nails very well. As a result, I usually stick to very sheer colors and clear polishes to keep my nails looking passable. I wanted to give the at home manicure (and even simple nail art) a try this week… but both attempts have ended with me drenching my poor nails into the polish remover.
I was a bit too ambitious yesterday and tried out the half moon manicure, but my right hand looked awful (even hubby said so lol). Tonight I tried the basic manicure, but it was also a no-go due to smudges and overzealous attempts to fix them.
My common problems:
– My nails look decent on my left hand, but dreadful on my right hand (dominant hand)
– My polish application turns out too thin, or way too thick and just plain looks sloppy
– I get discouraged and avoid painting my nails
I am not going to give up! I will be brushing up on tips and techniques over the next few days… and hopefully by the weekend I will have some polish on these nails! After all, we can’t be fabulous at everything, right? If you have any tips to share with me, leave them in the comments!
Do you have any beauty confessions?
