Instantly Dry Nail Polish {using something you already have}

Usually, if I ever actually admit to feeling under the weather, I trudge through, as mamas tend to do, and get better quickly, as mamas need to do. ‘Cause ain’t nobody got time for dat. Life marches on and mama’s gotta keep the ship steaming.

But when my hubs sweetly grounded me yesterday from teaching my writing students and leading our daughter’s cheer practice so I would actually rest, things got real. After a month of fighting a cold, I finally gave in and made an appointment for the doc.

[For those of you who have been following along for a while, you might be shocked to see my real nails, since you are used to this, this, and this!]

Well, I have a simple tool… And it’s one you might already own too:

I gently wash my hands and walk out the door. I grab my purse and coat; I open my door, fasten my seatbelt, and crank the car; and I drive off with my perfectly un-smudged, scraped, or ruined polish. HUZZAH!

Anyone else wielding a mommy-power hot tip? Do tell!!

[OH! And P.S.: This polish color is called Barefoot in Barcelona by OPI, and I adore it.]
