Polish vs Lacquer...who knew?

Okay, so this might be another one of those "blonde" things, but did you know that there is a difference between nail polish and nail lacquer?? I am the type of person, who despite my best efforts, CANNOT wear sandals with out first painting my nails. No polish, no sandals. Thats my motto. I have an issue with feet as a whole anyway. I think feet are gross and I really don't like to look at them. The thing I think I hate more than feet are unpolished toenails (I think I just threw up a little just thinking about it). I don't care if other people paint their nails or not. This is a totally personal preference.

I have been on the prowl, searching stores as I come across them, for the perfect hot pink nail polish. I want it. Bad. Whenever I get a pedicure (which isn't really all that often-sad, I know) I always pick the hot pink. You would think that you could find that color anywhere, but no. It has to be like a nail salon only thing...either that or all the hot pink polish know that I am coming for them and they run and hide. Either way, I can't find what I am looking for. Until Sunday. Oh yes. I was shopping with my girlfriend at Old Navy and were rushing (that's another story). When we slowed down in the check out line (really, when you are shopping this is the ONLY time you slow down) and there it was. In a plastic container with all of its hot pinkness glory. Its like the heavens opened up and the angels were singing...Natalie, this is it! I think I squealed and probably did a little jump (I can't help it or hide it when I get excited). I bought it.


(not the color I got. I bought Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro-Posh Pink...just couldn't find a pic of it)


After I got home I wasted zero time putting it on my horribly unpolished nails. It went on weird. I could tell it was going to take several coats and a clear coat just to make it passable. I wasn't sure what the problem was.You would think, me, a person who constantly is painting their nails would know that there is a difference in polishes! Nope, my mother-in-law
(here on out referred to as Mom S) came in and I was showing her my find and explaining that it wasn't going on like my other polishes. She said that it smelled a lot stronger than normal too. Mom S asked to see the bottle and said that it was nail polish. In my head I was thinking "well, duh. Thats what you want when you want pretty nails", but what I said was "yep." She said that what I needed was nail lacquer. I looked at her like she grew a third eye.

Apparently, all my "polish" has been lacquer. How did I make it 28 years without knowing that "polish" was a generalized term, but not actually what I use?! So weird! She also mentioned that the polish I just put on would stain my nails if I left it on for too long. Eww! Thank goodness for my personal shopping and all things fashionable expert! :)

So, today while on my lunch break, I ran down to Walmart. I was determined to find my perfect pink. Not exactly sure why I thought I could find it now when I haven't been able to find it for the past several years. Well, I didn't find it. I did find a bright and pretty pink. It will do. :) I will continue the search. One day I will find my perfect hot pink. :) Until then...

LOL I didn't know either!
Have you tried Essie??

Natalie said...

whew! So glad I am not the only one! Thanks for making me feel normal! :) I haven't! I will have to look that one up and see what I can find! Thanks Jenn!

I didn't know that either. Interesting!

Ashley said...

I had no clue!! I actually got my nails painted today and like you I always get hot pink. It's not as nice of a shade as the one that exploded all over my living room though =(

Natalie said...

I remember seeing that post! I was so sad for you...and your furniture!

Screaminpink said...

I have the posh-pink Rimmel you spoke of, but didnt encounter any problems with it. 1 clear base coat helps prevent nail staining, two coats pink and one clear fast finish top coat to seal it in. Its one of my fav colors for my toes. :)

I found an inexpensive brand LA Colors color craze ($1-$2) called "electric charge" that is very very similar to the Rimmel color. Im also an addict for only pink on my toes, like yourself.

Enjoyed reading your blog, and have a great day!

Alcohol, cigarettes or even genetics can leave you with yellow, dull, stained or dirty
looking teeth. This can give the impression of bad dental hygiene.

Having your teeth whitened can make a significant difference by removing stains and brightening your smile.
Quick, easy and painlessThere are a variety of teeth whitening methods on the market.
Some involve cheap over the counter gels or creams,
and some can be done by laser in 45 minutes-during your
lunch break! The process can be as quick, easy and painless
as you choose it to be. Professional whitening methods are the safest and most effective options.
Have a bright, white smile for yearsA professional teeth whitening
treatment will give you bright, white teeth for years. Professional treatments are more expensive than the home-use DIY options
but last far longer. The benefits of teeth whitening are
great for all-round confidence in your business and personal life.

It is triggered by the sincerness displayed in the post I read.
And after this post "Polish vs Lacquer...who knew?".
I was moved enough to drop a thought :) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's okay. Is it only me or do a few of the remarks come across like they are written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at additional online social sites, I'd like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post.

I am not italian, and i really received nothing at
all against them, but I listen to women expressing that
italian guys are soooo scorching, and beautiful, with design appears,
but these identical women are with men who are not italian.
And when they are italian, they surely don't look like models. I mean I'm able to realize the frustration of
girls when they see men ogling at models/skinny girls, and it tends to
make me query whether my bodily appearance is suitable or not.
So my query is are men of other ethnicities less fascinating?
can it be a fantasy of each lady to be by having
an italian dude?

I feel definitely certain that Paxil can straight trigger significant fat achieve.

I think not simply in Paxil's creating bodyweight obtain, but inside the inability to shed the weight although on Paxil! I also believe that a lot of doctors and organizations usually do not wish to believe that Paxil can cause bodyweight obtain. But I think that, provided that the bodyweight acquire isn't considerable, the positive aspects can "out-weigh" the
risks.
