Hard as Nails

nailpolish

So I tried but just couldn’t keep away.  I missed wearing nail polish and decided to get some formaldehyde-free top and base coats and painted my toe nails (my current top and base coats are not formaldehyde-free [and have been shown to cause birth defects in rats], which is why I took a hiatus from painting my nails).  I hate to admit it but I think the days of my painting my finger nails are over–it’s just not practical with my being pregnant and taking care of a newborn come December.  Ahhh…  Sure miss the smell and look of shiny red nails.  Speaking of nail polish, Christian Louboutin (my favorite shoe maker from my pre-pregnancy days) recently came out with his own nail polish line.  Is it worth it?  Many say yes (according to the reviews) but I think I’ll wait to see if I can get it as a gift ;).

Finally scheduled my hair appointment for Saturday.  My ends have been screaming at me for having put off getting my hair cut (my hair dresser will be disappointed when she sees me).  Restocked my favorite conditioner (at the moment, it’s Ojon Damage Reverse Conditioner).  Ounce for ounce, it’s less expensive than brands like Pureology and Kerastase (which I absolutely love) but works just as well.

We’re going to a wedding next week.  Hence, the haircut and painted toe nails (plus, I really missed wearing nail polish).  As for the outfit I’ll be wearing to the wedding, that is still in the works.  Funny how being pregnant makes for a more difficult selection process in terms of dressing up.  For those who are also pregnant, A Pea in the Pod (or Destination Maternity) is having a BUY-ONE-GET-ONE-FREE special on its sale items.  Not too shabby.
