Let me just be completely upfront on this: I almost NEVER polish my nails. I know....I just heard the HUGE gasps! Don't know if it's pure laziness, I'm too cheap to pay to have it done, lack of confidence of all of the above. BUT. I DO like this idea. One of the reasons I HATE to paint my nails is that I am TERRIBLE at it. Seriously. You'd think I don't know how to color inside the lines, for all the nail polish on the skin AROUND my nails. Laynie Fingers has a blog with all manner of nail stuff, including tutorials on how to do your nails all trendy and fancy-schmancy. I came across THIS super smart idea of painting vaseline around your nails before you polish 'em. Then when you color outside the lines it just wipes off. Easy peasy.
