Well, today was one of those days that I got all glam only to not go anywhere. Instead, I stayed in and worked on getting my 2 year old used to the potty, which you'd think she'd be used to by now seeing as she is put on the potty several times a day when she goes to her Montessori program. But, she's not. So instead, I cleaned pee out of the carpet 3 times and then my other kid wet the bed for the first time in months. Lookin' all cute, cleaning up pee . Such is the life of a mom of 3!
Well, here's my face for the day.
I actually put on eyeshadow. A super simple smokey eye, because who doesn't love a smokey eye?! This was done using my Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. It's the only eyeshadow I have at arms reach right now, but it's really all you need for daily looks.
I also did my nails!!! It's been MONTHS since I did my nails! With kids, I just don't take the chance that they'll dry before SOMEONE wakes up. Today, I got all 3 kids down for their naps at the same time and so, I took the chance. Here's what I used:
I know I'm late to the party, but Seche Vite is something that I've never really tried. I mean, I've USED it - as a top coat. But, I've never tested it's quick-dry claim. But today I did. After 3 coats of this Essie polish, I painted on one coat of Seche Vite in hopes that my nails would dry before a kid woke up. And wouldn't you know it - as soon as I closed the bottle, my baby woke up from his nap prematurely. I was timing my nails so I could test the dry time, so I know it was less than a minute. But I careful grabbed the baby, and got him on my shoulder without messing up my nails and he went back to sleep so I could finish the test.
I let them sit for 9 minutes, just out of plain fear that they wouldn't be dry before I touched them. But when I touched them, they were TOTALLY DRY!!! I mean, I pressed into them to be sure, and it didn't leave a mark. I was actually shocked. I thought this would be a real game changer. BUT, life with kids is not easy on your hands. And after 2 hours of living my life with all 3 of my kids awake, this happened:
This was NOT a shock, and now that it's been 6 hours, several of my nails are already chipped. I'm pretty sure that by Tuesday (2 days from now) this mani will be completely ruined and I'll need to take it off.
I tried the quick dry spray on my toes, but I honestly forgot to check how fast it worked. So I'll try it again another time. But I'm glad I at least tried the Seche Vite's drying power. It actually worked and I'm now a fan. I will try it again for sure. Maybe when my husband is home to do all the kid stuff so I can at least have nice nails for 6 hours.
Thanks for reading and until next time,
