“Re-Pin” Worthiness: 8/10
I’ve never been one for nail polish, but last year I found this great brand at Target called “Sinful Colors” that was cheap and lasted without chipping too much. Don’t worry about the title of the brand though; the nail polish has yet to be responsible for leading me down the path to unrighteousness.
I ended up buying eight colors and have since made painting my nails a regular activity. One of my favorite colors is a bright blue called “Endless Blue.” (Does someone actually get paid to come up with these names? Does this person get fulfillment out of his/her job? Is this what all the people who major in women’s studies end up doing? These are the questions that keep me up at night.)
In the past when this had happened I would just keep repainting my nails until they grew long enough where you couldn’t see the color anymore. However, Pinterest came to the rescue.
With some toothpaste and water I was able to remove the majority of the resilient color. I had to put my fingers under water, rub them with toothpaste, and let it soak for a few minutes, but overall it worked pretty well.
Takeaway: Random household products can be used for things other than their intended purpose. Check out Pinterest as many users are really good at finding and sharing them.
