When doing your own manicures, you need lots of colors of polish. Do you think I have enough selection? I should tell you that I've been doing my own nails once a week for years. And for the past 2 years I've been stuck on using the same light pink color that was recommended by Prevention magazine - for 50 something girls. It's OPI's "Your Royal Shyness". It's a light pink color that is now discontinued.
Anyway, it's fun to have a good choice of colors for when we have a spa evening like we did on Friday night. I was the manicurist, and I did all three of the triplets nails. We all soaked our nails in a nice warm pan of sudsy water for 4 minutes. Then I filed down and rounded each of 30 little finger nails. Then while the girls were picking out their nail polish color, I buffed Mitchell's nails and they were very smooth and manly. Then I started the girls by applying the first base coat of polish followed by the first coat of color. The minute I put the first coat on, they developed itches everywhere... on their head, on their arm, on their nose. I would not let them scratch, that's for sure. Then, it was further agony when I made them keep their hands on the island for 5 whole minutes after the second coat of color was applied. They have to learn early. It's not easy being beautiful and sometimes you have to suffer. Ha Ha. We had a fun evening.
We picked out quilt patterns. Caitlin picked out a flying geese pattern that was set with dark green background with bright colored geese. Mitchell selected a blue quilt. It can be any block pattern, but he only wants blues. And Grace picked out an abstract quilt. I thought I was going to be able to use my stash, but for the most part, I'll have to buy new fabric.
