My annual prom date was last Saturday! This was our seventh year in a row to attend prom together, and my 9yo daughter was pretty much appalled that I would wear the same dress I wore… four years ago. I told her I’m pretty sure no one would care.
And besides, I had accessories this time! A cousin who is well-known for her jewelry collection walked in our house as I was getting ready. “I was going to call you and borrow some jewelry, and I forgot,” I told her. She immediately took the necklace off her neck and the bracelet off her wrist. “Here, wear this!” Ha! It worked!
Also, you can barely see the red tip of my finger, but I was wearing fun nail wraps from Jamberry Nails. The ones I chose are no longer available, but they are red with flowery swirls.
Jamberry Nails are a vinyl nail shield that you heat up with your hair dyer and file off the end. They are not a polish, so they don’t chip and there is no dry time. They last up to 2 weeks on fingers and 4-6 on your toes! They are non-toxic, chemical free and made in the USA. There are numerous designs for every age and style.
This is all great news for me, because my last manicure was in July 2008 for my sister’s wedding. I found it quick and easy to apply the nails, both to my girls and for myself, and no way no how could I achieve the same cuteness with plain ol’ polish. It was a fun treat!
The girls and I figure each sheet of nail wraps will give us about 3 different full “manicures.” The sheets are $15, so that breaks down to $5ish per application, which is significantly less than heading to the salon. We also thought it might be fun to match some polish with the colors on the wraps, polishing some fingers and using wraps for others when we just have “scraps” left over. Waste not, want not!
I think my personal favorite wraps are the sports and hobbies. I may be the crazy mom with basketballs, baseballs, and footballs on her nails all at once! So much fun!

Just for fun… when was your last manicure? Are you a “polish at all times” kinda girl or a “naked nails” kinda girl? I prefer polish on my toes at all times in the summer, but if you happen to see chipped polish on my big toe only in January? Well… yeah. That’s how I roll.
