Very rarely do I splurge for a pedicure. But, for myself, I keep polish on my toes year round. The bright color makes me happy. Depending on my mood or the season or the new shade I got from WalMart, I change the color.
About 10 years ago, I stripped the polish off my nails. I didn't repaint them immediately. I walked into the kitchen to get a glass of water and encountered Will along the way. He pointed at my feet, screamed "EEEEWWWWWW!" and started doing his wigged-out dance. He wanted to know what had happened.
Since he had always seen my toe nails polished, he must have assumed they were permanently painted. Even though he'll be 16 soon, I keep my nails polished so he won't be grossed out by my naked nail beds.
Wonder what kind of conditioning I'm creating for future daughters-in-law?
