WFMW: The secret to a good home manicure

Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat will make your home-done manicure last seven to ten days.

I feel obligated to post this Works for Me Wednesday tip. I cannot be so selfish as to keep this wonderful product all to myself (though the thought occurred to me).

I used to have my nails done at a salon every two weeks. Then kids. Now I do them at home when the mood strikes.

But I can get that salon quality at home with Seche Vite. It really does act like a shiny cement. If it weren't for this product I would NEVER give myself a manicure. I use it when I do the manicure, then every third day I apply another coat. There's no chipping, no'll think your nails were born to be Cajun Shrimp.

I buy my supply from a dealer behind the Arby's by my house. I don't know where he gets it, just that he only takes cash. Sometimes he calls and says I only have five minutes to get there or he can't make the deal.

If the dealer doesn't call and I need some really badly, I can get it at my local Sally Beauty Supply for about $8 a bottle. And they take credit cards. However, the last time I was there they had it on sale for $4.50, so I went back home and got Pete's truck. (Update: It is still on sale there!)

I had the exact same thought as mzzterry! Sounds sketchy, but... well, that's part of "suffering for beauty"! Does the dude behind Arby's ship??
