Sometimes a confidence boost can come in a small little bottle of nail polish, the more chemical free the better.
Because we spend most of our day seeing our hands, and not our reflection in a mirror (put down the compact ladies) keeping well maintained pointers gives me that little bit of extra assurance. I can't afford to have them professionally manicured, in Australia at least, and I cant really justify going to Thailand for a $3.30 session every month, so I keep a good range of colours to do myself. I recently discovered Butter - an English brand that is free of the toxic carcinogens in other polish. Its a little pricey, but hot tip is Madison giving away the Yummy Mummy colour - as pictured below.
Also - if your polish is starting to dry up - add a couple of drops of polish remover. I saw the Thai ladies doing it. The more you dilute, the more coats you'll have to apply, but you'll get more for your buck
