    These are great tips. I always do my toes at the beginning of spring and they last me a month, my hands not so much because they need re-painting every 3-4 days, I wish I had the time to paint them more often and also, do a nice design.

    I usually apply new polish once a week – two thin coats of polish and one coat of top polish and that usually lasts all week. I would be way too lazy to do this every other night, anyways!

    These are good tips! I was very wary of the chemicals in nail polish in pregnancy so I never painted my nails then to be safest. It’s good to let your nails have a break now and then too! 🙂

    Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend so far! 🙂
