Feeling FRUMPY after a baby!

Every time I look in the mirror lately, it is so depressing. My hair is falling out. (Including my eyelashes! At least they don't seem as full.) My skin needs some sun. My tummy is a, "bowl full of jelly," according to my kids, and I am nursing, which means my clothing needs to be very functional. I love my little guy, and wouldn't trade him for anything... not a tan, not lustrous hair and nails, and a flat tummy. But, I was feeling like I needed a small bit of style in my life. I was watching Studio 5 the other day, and they did a segment about hot nail trends. The segment is linked up below. I thought... "I can do that!" I can't fit into my jeans without a large muffin top, but I can paint my nails. They said the new trend is short nails. I can do that too! After having the baby, my nails seem to have stopped growing.

These aren't for everyone, but I thought it was a fun change.

It is by China Glaze, and it is called Crackle Nail Polish.

You paint the bottom coat whatever color you want, let it dry fully, and apply the crackle. I used Crackled Concrete. It is gray. It I was feeling extra crafty, I would have gone to the craft store, bought some crackle paint, and made my own! Maybe another day.

My thumb looks extra special ;)

Here are the other colors they have.

I also bought white, and my daughter was VERY excited!

Studio 5 Segment

About the muffin top... I know I shouldn't complain. I could be on the treadmill, but alas, I am blogging. Well, I am feeding the baby as I type! Multi-tasking at it's finest!

Have a Happy and Stylish Day!
