Perfect 10

anna nails perfect 10 #2

At my house there is no shortage of girly stuff. I have three daughters and even though one doesn’t technically reside with me she’s still a regular culprit in the makeup, nails and all things girl that we have going on. (My poor son!)

So it’s no surprise when someone is doing their nails, getting their nails done, wants their nails done and every scenario in between. In fact, I’ve been wanting to paint my fingernails for about two weeks and just stopped being lazy yesterday. Now my fingernails, and my toes, are quite cute. Winking smile

My youngest daughter, who likes the girly gang as well, will sit patiently to have her nails or toes done. Neither I nor my middle and oldest daughter mine doing her toenails, but we’ve all sworn not to do her nails again. Why? For one, she sucks her thumb so that polish is sure to come off in less than 24 hours. Number two, she will more than likely mess up a nail or two. Although, I have to admit, she has gotten better. And lastly, she is may sit patiently, but she’s rarely immobile so you spend a lot of time correcting, wiping. fussing and sighing loudly.

Then one afternoon after promising the day before I patiently applied the nails using the oh-so-annoying sticky strips that came with the nails.

I thought it would be a perfect day to do them because she would be in most of the day and wouldn’t have to worry them. I just knew that the cuteness of them would inspire her to keep them on.

I was wrong.

About five to eight minutes after I completed the last one she came back complaining that one had moved. She had been playing on the computer. About 10 minutes after that she returned with a nail or two in the palm of her hand. This went on for about 30 minutes before she decided she wanted to take them off. Surprised smile

I kept my wits about me and didn’t fuss or complain, but once again pledged that I would never EVER do her nails again. We’ll see how long that lasts.

Before she took them they fell off I managed to get a couple of photos. I think she looks adorable with a perfect 10. What do you think?
