I have a love/hate relationship with acrylic nails and some voodoo

Adventures, nail polish, saving money

I love getting my nails done, I love that they stay nice looking for weeks, there is no better way to look polished than having nice fingernails! However, the cost I do not love. It had been awhile since I have been able to get to the nails salon so they got all grown out-which I could not stand. I hate hate chipped nail polish or grown out acrylics! So I took them off myself this morning.

I soaked my nails in 100% acetone nail polish remover and got impatient, so I kind of just ripped them off one by one, not recommended. They are ripped to shreads, thin, and hurty. I cut them down as far as I could without drawing blood and painted them red. Problem solved. At least they look semi-decent. I take them off, then miss them and go get them done, then take them off again. It’s a vicious cycle!

While I was mutilating my fingers, I lit a voodoo protection candle because someone had broken into our house before we moved in and stole our refrigerator and stove, and just a few days ago while we were at work, our neighbors chased off some guy in a red truck who was walking around our house for some reason.

It would be smart to get an alarm system, but the candle was cheaper! It should come as no shock that a person who obsessively checks their horoscope would use a voodoo candle to feel safe, hey whatever works right?

  1. Sometimes the term out of sight out of mind helps.

    I just got finger soakers from Wish.com and I can’t wait to try them. They cost me $2 for 10 finger soakers.
    You take a Cotten ball with nail polish remover and you put it on your nail. You then take the finger clip and you just wait. If needed reapply the polish remover and put the clips back on your fingers.
