During this whole July Challenge extravaganza, I’ve been presented with the joys and the pitfalls of self-maintenance in the beauty department.
Basically, there weren’t NOTD (Nails of the Day) photos for the first week or so because, well… things got ugly. Real ugly. Nail polish everywhere, cuticles shining with metallic polish, paint somehow dried on the underside of my nail… The learning curve was pretty steep. Fortunately, the broke-ass soldier that I am, I ventured forth.
Along the way, I discovered a key tool that I’m pretty sure I need for at least 6 different beauty-related reasons, and over 45 Macguyver-related reasons:
Pointed. Cotton. Swabs.
Are you serious? These just materialized on Amazon, right? I’m not so out of the beauty loop that these have existed every time that I fervently paced the aisle of the drug store… right?
I can’t count the number of uses I could think of for these things…
- Gross nail polish paint-outside-the-lines incidents
- Liquid eyeliner mishaps
- Kitty eye boogers (AM I RIGHT?)
- Cleaning jewelry
- Tiny, annoying, projectile “missiles” (get ready, boyfriend)
I’m in love.
Have you experienced an amazing multitasker? (This one, or others?)
I’m pretty enamored with the idea of multitaskers – possibly a new B&B column in the works!
