First, polish. Even I am not so out of it that I don't know about all the crazy crackle finishes and magnetized fun available in a bottle of polish these days.

Sephora felt it very important I know about the new magnetized polish from nails, inc. It looks pretty cool (pricey, but cool) although I have my doubts about my ability to recreate this look.

The way I understand it, you press these nail polish strips to your nail and shape any of the overhanging excess with a file. It is entirely possible that I could do that without royally screwing up.
I know, I know, I also am reeling from all the greatness now available in my favorite nail product aisle. But there's more. Anonymous, all this is for you, babe. I didn't find the pearl and filigree "nail armor" we both admired, but I did find the Japanese practice of Stereoscopic nails.

I sort of love it.
Okay, but some of us don't have time to sit down and get a set of acrylics put on. Then what? Well, we do what the stars do.

That's right, we get pave diamond set nail rings. Or, you know, something not $4500.
There you go, Anonymous and my other darlings. A whole lot I didn't know about fingernails. If I do try the Sally Hansen number I promise to tell you all about it. Will you do the same?
