The Manicure

nail polish

Yes, I got into another L’Oreal testing study. This one is for gel nail polish. One hand was painted with some L’Oreal brand of gel nail polish, the other hand with the competition (I won’t tell you which hand is which). I wear it for two weeks and then they take it off, give me a pass to the company store, a goody bag and $75.

You may ask why they’d pay someone to get a free manicure. Look at the left hand. That’s what the polish looked like after one week and a few days. That’s right. It peeled off of four nails (and the fifth wasn’t looking too good by the end). I’m not allowed to do anything about that and I actually had several dressy events last weekend.

Yes, I painted my bare nails with matching color regular nail polish and removed it before the final visit. Shhhh. Don’t tell them.

P.S. I’m not cut out to be a hand model.

P.P.S. – my goody bag. Some Vichy anti-wrinkle cream, Kiehl’s acne blemish treatment, Kiehl’s gel mask, Maybelline eye shadow and liquid liner. Score!



  1. Maybe next time if you have dressy events coming up, stick with a pedi. 😉

  2. the heck with the nail polish; I’ll take the ring.
