Nails: Stars Stripes & Glamour (Giveaway)

As a teenager, I bit my nails. I couldn’t use nail polish. I had no nails. Thankfully, I outgrew the habit and I’ve discovered the colorful world of nail polish!

I see nail polish as racy lingerie for nails. Except way better because I can show it off to everyone I meet!

I can re-invent my nails and add a touch of sparkle and glamour whenever I want. Whether I’m wearing a suit, a flirty dress or my everyday jeans, I know I can embellish my nails with shades that will make me shine and sparkle.

    I remember my grandmother painting my nails when I was in Kindergarten. She sold Avon and has many fun colors.

  • Betty July 9, 2013, 1:03 pm

    can’t remember for sure – somewhere around middleschool/early highschool

  • Dash July 9, 2013, 1:54 pm

    My grandmother also sold Avon so I can remember her painting them at a very young age.

  • Michele Behlen July 9, 2013, 8:13 pm

    I was probably around 14.

  • Ashley C July 10, 2013, 12:05 pm

    I first remember wearing my nails painted in 1st grade, it was something special my mom did when we moved to a new city and I was going to a new school


  • Stephanie July 12, 2013, 12:20 am

    I can’t remember, I’ve always loved my nails. And having an open bite, I couldn’t bite them and have always had them long. I do remember having a birthday party where my then teenage cousin painted our nails. We were a group of ecstatic grade 4s!

  • Jennifer Dysart July 12, 2013, 8:19 am

    I think I was probably 7 or maybe younger. my mom gave me that peel-off barbie or tinkerbell polish!

    I Would Say I Was Around 9 When I First Painted My Nails

  • Bcteagirl July 15, 2013, 12:09 am

    I must have done when I was little, but I don’t remember being very interested in nail polish until adulthood.

  • Taylor Russell July 15, 2013, 3:57 pm

    My mom would always do them better than me, and then I finally started attempting to do my own when I was probably about 10.

  • Sonya Parks July 15, 2013, 6:05 pm

    I didn’t really get into doing my nails until my mom passed away last year. I needed a distraction and came across a nail art tutorial and I was hooked. It helped me deal with my grief.

  • Jessica July 15, 2013, 6:28 pm

    ever since i can remember!

  • liz l July 15, 2013, 6:36 pm

  • Erin-Paint Those Piggies! July 15, 2013, 7:51 pm

  • Rachel Rodrigues July 16, 2013, 12:57 pm

  • Denise F July 16, 2013, 2:21 pm

  • jennifer wexler July 16, 2013, 3:45 pm

  • Alba Garza July 16, 2013, 4:04 pm

    35 :( I was a serious nail-biter until last September. I finally got tired of the icky look and the pain and stopped biting. They were very short (pretty much just cuticles left) so it took about a two months before I was able to paint the little nubbins.

  • Eileen Carter-Campos July 16, 2013, 8:13 pm

    My mother was a SUPER STRICT Boriqua so it had to be when I was in junior high school. Painting your nails meant that you were grown…and anything before that was definitely a “NO-NO”…it could have been later–lol

    The nail polish is beautiful!!! ;)

    I was in grade school. My sister and I did each others nails.

  • Mandy M July 18, 2013, 4:31 am

    I was probably around 4 years old when my mom bought Tinkerbell nail polish for me. It would peel off so you didn’t need to use polish remover.

  • elisa July 19, 2013, 12:20 am

    I remember having disney scented peel off nail polish when I was around 4, do you guys remember that stuff?

  • Laura Jacobson July 21, 2013, 9:36 pm

    Oh my grandma used to do mine when I was little…probably around 3 or 4 years old. I loved when she would sit and do them! Such beautiful memories!

  • Rachel H July 22, 2013, 10:11 am
