Red Nails . . . Gel? The Verdict is in!

June 21, 2012

Before I tell you about my trip to Sonoma, C.A. I thought I should tell you what I did before I left . . .

As  you know I really like wearing red nail polish. It makes me feel, excuse the pun, polished.

There are two things about the process I don’t like. First, is waiting for my nails to be completely dry, and second, since I use my hands a lot, the polish starts chipping off after a day or two. That just isn’t long enough for me to have red nails very often.

Until now that is! I finally tried the gel nail polish that dries almost instantly under the UV lamps, and  it doesn’t chip*! What a nice feeling it is to no longer have to do the funny hand dance of gliding your hands through the air while keeping your fingers apart.

Arlene, my friend, convinced me I would love it when she came over to show me her red nails, inspired after reading my post Winter Blues. I explained, I was reluctant to try it, afraid that the process might damage my nails, and that I’d read an article in a fashion magazine where a woman described her nails feeling claustrophobic under the acrylic gel.  She insisted I’d love it and she was right!

My trip to Sonoma was my inspiration to finally try the gels, something I wouldn’t  have dared in the past for fear of chipping nails while on vacation, but it’s been a week and they still look great!

If you like color on your nails and haven’t tried the gels yet, what are you waiting for go out and have some fun!

*It lasts 2-3 weeks and only needs to be redone when you can see the new nail growing in.

I was amazed when I discovered that my kitchen waste actually has an enormous impact on climate change. “Wasting food has irreversible environmental consequences: it wastes the water and energy it took to produce it, and generates greenhouse gases—7 percent of the world’s emissions—like methane, carbon dioxide and ...

Turkey but no guests I have a solution
WHAT TO DO THIS THANKSGIVING

November 19, 2020

This year’s Thanksgiving is different, but then this year has been different; I know you do not need to be reminded of that—none of us do. We all have to deal with it one way or the other. I reread last year’s post about four ways to use up all those leftovers. At this moment leftovers feel so optimistic. But . . .

Fool proof Gravy
FOOLPROOF GRAVY—WORKS EVERY TIME

November 12, 2020

Years ago, I could roast a turkey but I was terrified of making gravy. Those damn lumps would be the give-away that I had no idea what I was doing. My solution: never make gravy! I remember asking my mother-in-law to please make the gravy as we lifted the turkey out of the oven. “Yes,” she answered. But I noticed . . .
