The husband going out of town means two things for me: 1. I get to paint my nails while watching TV (he hates the smell) 2. I get to have the condo ALL TO MY SELF. First things first, I rearrange, clean, and generally set things up for how I would live without a man around. Hear me out…
Buy some pretty flowers, set out your favorite books and catalogs, candles, whatever is aesthetically pleasing to your little eye. Okay, now that we are feeling good about our surroundings, time to get down to business. Some glitter polka dot nail art!
Once you have your base color on and it’s nice and dry, you can start adding your polka dots. Here, I used Essie Chinchilly and Essie Luxe Effects Set In Stones along with Seche Vite fast drying top coat *the best*. You can use a toothpick or those wooden cuticle pusher sticks (which we never actually use) to make your dots.
Let dry and then use a luxurious lotion to complete you polka dot manicure. I LOVE Lollia Wish.
Put those feet up and dive into whatever guilty pleasure TV show you want to watch or your favorite magazine or book. A mug of coffee or hot cocoa tops things off just right. No judgement here * and no football!
Being a pretend bachelorette for a bit is so much fun!
What do you do to you treat yourself when your significant other is away??
