Nail Polish - Everything You Need To Know

How to Take Care Of Your Nail Polish 

I have been doing my own manicures since I was a little girl.

I am a huge collector of nail polishes, nail pens, lotions, nail stickers, rhinestones, files, buffers etc.  I have had over 100 nail polishes at once.

I love high quality polish.  Not only does it stay on longer than cheap polish but the color is more saturated, it goes on easier & it doesn't stain your nails IF you put on a base coat.

Don't get me wrong...  When I see a sale on polish, I will buy it.  I love buying discontinued colors too.

Random & Quick Tips

I have always kept my nail polish in the fridge.  It makes the polish last longer and not clump.

I roll the polish in between my hands before I use it.  I shake the bottles as well if there isn't much left it in or the colors are separating.

In between color changes I let my nails breathe as your nails need oxygen.  I apply cuticle oil, put lotion on my hands, stay away from water as my nails get weaker & I put on at least a base coat or hardener.

I also always put on a base coat & a top coat.  I know it's a pain in the butt because it takes so long to dry in between coats but it's worth it.

It not only makes your nails stronger but your nails won't chip as fast, your nails won't stain and the color and overall polish goes on better.

Have you ever thought why are my nails turning yellow?  How Can I fix this?


  • Color reaction is usually the reason your nails turn yellow. Darker-colored polishes stain nails due to a chemical reaction between the polish & the nails.

  • A chemical known as formaldehyde in the polish could be causing the problem. Formaldehyde reacts and makes your nails yellow.

  • It could be a sign of a nail infection.  This is unlikely and unless their are other symptoms of a nail infection or bad health.

Yellow Nails from Nail Polish Color Reaction


  • Try out the nail whitener from Witchcraft.  It works for toes as well.

  • Using whitening toothpaste on your nails and use a stiff nail brush to scrub them.

  • Soak your hands in lemon water for about 15 minutes or until you see results.

Boyfriend is obsessed with cars

1979 Camaro

My boyfriend is literally obsessed with his Camaro.  

I am not sure if anyone loves cars as much as him.  Do you feel like this too?  Do a lot of your conversations revolve around cars?

When anyone mentions a Camaro my boyfriend's eyes twinkle.  He owns a 1979 Camaro.  I swear he loves the car more than me.

I even jokingly asked him before who he loves more.  He said that he loved the car and me equally. LOL

What can one do when this happens?

First off, don't take away something that your mate is genuinely interested in.  If you try and take it away they will forever hold a grudge against you, resent you, get pissed off & ruin your night.

Let them be themselves and as long as they come home to you at the end of the night, who cares.  Life is too short to be controlling.  He is also probably more likely to be with the car less and you more if your not nagging as much.

If it bothers you about him being around his car more than you, I recommend the following:
  1. Go with him and help work on the car.  Even sit with him and keep him company.  Bring some music, make some sandwiches and bring some drinks and not only will he appreciate it but he will also tell his friends how cool is girlfriend/boyfriend is.
  2. Find something to occupy your time while he is busy.   When people get into relationships they tend to forget who they really are and put the other's interests before theirs.  Take a pottery class, photography, go to the gym, take tennis lessons or read a book.  If you are both busy at the same time he will appreciate you more and realize that you are the best boyfriend/girlfriend.
  3. Encourage them by buying accessories for their car.  If you don't have a lot of money, by a key chain, a hat.. Anything that has their cars logo on it so show your support.

  4. Make a collage or scrap book that shows the progress of the rebuild.  It is something that they can look at or show off to their friends/family.

Most of all, be supportive.

That is what being in a relationship is all about.  Sometimes people get so pulled into their own lives that they forget how their actions affect their partner.  Just be patient as this time will pass..
