Giving in to my Girly Nature

I meant to write another BlogHer’12 post today. I was going to edit pictures and write a glorious wrap-up of the final day of the conference. Instead, I watched the Olympics, kvetched about some of the choices in the closing ceremony (for the love of God, why did you have Jessie J sing with Queen), and indulged the girly girl side of me.

One of the many fun things given out on the Expo floor at BlogHer’12, were imPRESS nails from Broadway Nails. Let me tell you, these are not your mama’s press on nails. First of all, they have fabulous vibrant colors and gorgeous patterns. Second of all, they are tough. They feel like real nails. And, third, they really, really stick. According to the claims of Broadway Nails, these nails can last up to 7 days and I’ve seen reports of them lasting up to 10 plus days. I’ve only had mine on half of one day and I can believe the claims already. I’ve typed, tickled, played, and done everything I normally do and these nails haven’t budged.
Honestly, I love these nails and I will be buying more after I run out of the ones I brought home with me. I’ve always wanted to be able to sport a nice manicure but I have sucky nails and, even when I get them to grow, I am incapable of keeping a pristine nail polish job for more than about 10 minutes. I am so thrilled to be able to indulge the girly girl side of my nature without it limiting my activities.

So, what’s your favorite girly girl indulgence? Share with me.

*These nails were given out on the BlogHer’12 Expo floor. I received nothing to write the post. I did it just to share something I love with you.

    Those nails look sexy.

    When I want some girly pampering, having my hair done is the thing for me. But I don’t go for it often.

    Buying clothes is fun too (but I like to shop alone, and not with female company.).

    Nice nails! I haven’t used mine yet – but only because I’m wanting to use a few more summery colors first. :)

    I do love a good pedicure, but my last one was almost two years ago… YIKES!

    My honest to goodness favourite girly thing to do is give myself a mini facial. I do all the cleaning and moisturizing stuff, but the best part is doing one of those nose strips. It’s gross, but I love examining the strip afterward… :) I’m fascinated by those little prickly bits.

    I guess I’m not the girliest of women.
