Guess real men do wear pink!

My husband told me while I was customizing our third pair (!) that I never have to 'worry' about him wearing pink. I said why not, I think Pink is sexy on men!

Does anyone have suggestions for cheap nail polish brands/nail pen brands. I really don't want to spend a lot, but I have 3 bands to decorate and I don't want the nail polish to chip.

Sally's beauty Supply sells really small bottles if nailpolish for $0.99. At my store they were on the side of the register and on the side of some end caps. I used those for my bands. I didn't use a top or bottom coat. HTH!

The Dollar Tree has nail supplies. I haven't tested them for chip resistance on the bands, but maybe if you use a decent top/base coat, that won't matter as much. ICE at Walmart is less than 2.00 a bottle and they have a 3in1 clear coat that holds up pretty well.

My MIL is planning to use jewelry glue to put some bling on hers. I haven't seen it yet, but I will let you know if it works. Plumber's glue, the kind that is dishwasher safe, might also be good. That way it could get wet too.

I thought that was a nice alternative to glow in the dark polish, which can get cloudy after several coats.
I'm going to use loose glitter on the Mickey head part, then a polish with a little bit of glitter for the rest of the band, and put the UV polish over that. I'll be going this weekend, I'll let you know how it ends up.

My son's favorite character is Captain Jack Sparrow- and he loves pirates. I'm having a hard time coming up with something other than brown/orange color scheme for that. I don't like that idea, because he's almost 4 and fickle. He likes Jake and the Neverland Pirates, too, but not as much as Captain Jack. His favorite color is green, so for right now I have a green band ordered. We have until May 7th to confirm our colors.
Maybe flesh color nail polish on the Mickey face, with an eye patch and a tiny earring? Someone posted earlier a white Mickey only and I thought it was so simple and yet it was still amazing.

Keep an eye out at drug stores for sales. I got one of mine for .99 at Walgreens & bought Wet & Wild top coat for the same price.

I found two at Big Lots for just over $1. I also saw packs of all different colors there too but I can't remember exactly how much they were..around $10 I believe.

Go to discount department stores like Bealls, Ross or TJ Maxx.

And as far as my snow comment, I just really get sick of telling people where I am from and hearing about all of the snow, since that is their perception of the city. You and I both know that there is much more going on here than snow!

But, I guess that comment is not true for this year! People are usually surprised when I tell them that Syracuse usually gets more snow than we do! And, I also work for a "chamber" type organization, so it is my mission to spread the good, not the bad!
I'm from the Utica area. I feel your pain and am SO wanting some WDW kind'a weather right now! So Sick of Winter!!

Buffalo over here. I usually don't complain too much about the snow. I've lived here my whole life so I'm used to it by now. But this year winter just doesn't seem to want to end
