OH NOES!!!!





You will never guess what happened to me this morning!!!

I was just finishing up a manicure with the most beautiful nail polish I've ever seen, Sation Chill Factor:


...When all of a sudden, I noticed it was taking on a blue-ish cast! I took off my polish, thinking it was a weird reaction with Seche Vite, only to find that it was my nails turning blue!! That's when I realized what was happening. I thought it was only an old wives tale, but it's true; my nails were suffocating because I wore polish for too long. Panic set in. What should I do?? Blow on them? But before I could administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation they had all fallen off. I can't believe it! They were right! Your nails really do need to breathe, or else they can suffocate and DIE! Don't be a fool like I was, listen to your nails when they're gasping for air and TAKE OFF YOUR POLISH!!! Nails are people too. They need air just like the rest of us.

  15. I couldn't get past the "most beautiful color" part for a few seconds...then as I read the rest of the post, the date set in. Good one!

    One of my nails did turn blue one time, but that was because it got in the way of a car door...ow.

    ReplyDelete
  40. LOL Good one! When I read, that this supposed to be a beautiful polish, I was like: "WTF??? What's wrong with her?" But when I read that your nails had fallen of, it clicked in my head... April fools day. LOL Have a nice day and take care of your beautiful nails. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I was definitely thinking "How would you SEE a blueish cast through the nail polish?" before I finished reading to the end, and then I was like "ahaha, i c wat u did there."

    ReplyDelete
  42. ok i know this was a joke BUT!!!! i actually like that polish color!! i think it would be good for toes, check this out.. it is very similar to goldstone: http://www.mydreambeads.com/wholesalebeads/images/subcategory-goldstone.jpg

    ReplyDelete
  43. Happy April Fool's Day!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  44. LOL, you really had me there. I read it four times, in complete schock, before I clicked my way to the comments.

    Now I can breathe again. :-D

    ReplyDelete
  45. What a sucker I am!!! I too had to read the comments to realize it was a joke... I was already running for the remover!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. BUAHAHAHAH!! Nice one.
    I do let my nails 'breathe' in between manicures. I find the skin underneath the nail goes white if I wear it too long. I just leave polish off for a couple hours for the pink to return to my nailbeds then put the polish back on.

    ReplyDelete
  47. As soon as I read "you'll never guess what happened", I knew it was an April Fool's joke. You got me last year. But this year I wised up!!:)

    ReplyDelete
  48. wow, I feel for your april fools joke two years in a row!!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I was actually reading the post aloud in utter horror to my mother, and about halfway through we both realized "April Fool!" What a relief! I don't have to take my polish off, after all.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I was so confused when you said you liked that polish that I read the first part of the post like 6 times before I made it to the whole "turning blue" thing. That nail polish looks like poop.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Why do I keep getting fooled by these April Fool's Day jokes? I'm so gullible!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Too funny. I was like this has got to be a joke. :-D Good one.

    Actually I did have my toe nails dry up so bad I was worried I had a fungus.

    My sister the hairdresser told me I had left on polish with all those bad chemicals on too long and it was drying out the nail. So now only DBP free polish on my poor toe nails.

    ReplyDelete
  53. LOL!! I almost believed the blue part, then I'm like no way, must be an april fools joke.

    Good one though. haha

    ReplyDelete
  54. Hahaha I can't believe you got me again!

    ReplyDelete
  55. So much better than being Rick Roll'd.

    xoxo!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Naughty, naughty Scrangie! I hope the polish love was a joke too, because it looks a bit like sparkly poo. Eek! :P

  70. haha i'm so proud of myself for not falling for that. happy april fools!

    ReplyDelete
  71. One time that actually happened to both of my big toe nails but it was because I wore bad running shoes for a length of time. lol

    ReplyDelete
  72. Oh man, I love April Fools' Day. :'D

    ReplyDelete
  73. My mom used to tell me that nails had to breathe too, when I was little. Is it really an old wives' tale? I feel like it could be true, since when I'm wearing polish for long stretches of time (even light colored ones), they don't look as normal.

    I fell for this until I read the very end! :) Your April Fools last year was really well done too. Wow, it's already been a year since I started reading your blog!! LOVE IT.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Ha Ha, Good one girl. I would totally Believe it except that I have wore polish on my fingers and toes every single day for the past 7 years, and they have yet to fall off.

    ReplyDelete
  75. you almost had me...and then i read the comments! nice :)

  76. My goodness. I totally fell for that. It's not I'm a senior Biochemistry major or anything *hides face in shame*

    ReplyDelete
  77. lmfao! that is the most hideous color.. it's poop! april fools Scragieliscious!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Hahaha! I can't believe I fell for that!! I actually started scratching at my polish subconsciously when I was reading it!! Haha!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Forget the nails falling off..."most beautiful nail polish [you]'ve ever seen"?

    LMAO! That was a nice touch.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Haha ;D I have actually never heard of this "old wives" tale though :P so I knew right away that we were getting pulled by the nose :P

    ReplyDelete
  81. I believed it til I got to the nails are people, hahaha. You rock Scrangie.
