Jolie: I have fingernail anxiety. Well. I have anxiety in general but today we're going to talk specifically about my fingernail anxiety. The issue is this: I like a nice looking hand. I admire the sort of woman who always has a manicure. I aspire to be that sort of woman! But I cannot, for the life of me, sit still in a salon long enough to let things dry and then I get angry with myself for ruining the manicure I just paid for but also I can absolutely not manage to get my cuticles looking remotely acceptable on my own, though I am rather good with the painting [...]
I like to paint my nails. Crazy colors, glitter, rhinestones, I'm into all of it. And knowing this, starting about two years ago, certain friends of mine who have began pushing me to try this new kind of nail polish they were in love with: gel nail polish. By now you've heard of this. Gel nail polish is applied at the salon where they "set" the polish under a UV light. You stick your wet nails into a glowing blue light box and a few minutes later, voila, your nail polish is perfectly dry and hardened.
When converts talk to you about gel nail polish, they say [...]
Okay, these look hard at first, but actually they're pretty easy and you can be messy. It looks like the glitter will cover up any slight imperfections. Plus, you have almost a week still to get them right. Fun thing about this lady: she often uses her daughter as a hand model in the videos. Cool mom!

This is a purely "servicey" post. A twist? Put the glitter at the bottoms of your nails instead. Look at how much fun this chick is having. She could be you!
WAH nails is calling this look "Bit of Bling" but they could really call it "Perfect." Notice how the blue french tip isn't neon like the rest are? That is art. Five bottles of bright nail polish with skinny brushes should run you less than $10 at the drug store (or buy 22 colors for $35 right here!), but where on Earth is that nude from?
2. Hello Queer Chick, hope you’re well. I’m a bisexual girl who’s been in a relationship with an awesome guy for almost a year and a half now. He’s my first boyfriend, and the sum of my sexual experience has been with him. He knows and is comfortable with my sexuality, and would welcome the opportunity for me to have sexual encounters with women – so long as he’s in the room at the time. And I’d welcome it too; I’ve never been with a girl, and now that I feel I’ve got a handle on hetero-sex, I’m more interested in women than ever.
I guess the [...]
Of all the indicators we looked at, one of the most consistently accurate was Champagne sales. The amount of French Champagne that Americans consume has predicted — with nearly 90 percent accuracy — the average American income one year later. Apparently, when we pop a Champagne cork, we know that good times are ahead (see chart).
Interesting. And apparently nail polish does a similar thing, but in reverse — sales go up when the economy goes down.
