The last time I did nails was about five years ago.

I bought a few brushes that were supposed to be permanent.

One of them was a paint brush.

I’ve always been interested in natural nail polish because it’s supposed to help me keep my nails straight, but I never tried it.

It’s not like I’m a nail polish addict.

It just didn’t work for me. 

The brush I picked up the next day turned out to be an absolute mess.

I was still trying to figure out how to apply it, so I decided to try something new.

I decided that if I could do it better, I would do it with a brush I’d never seen before.

I made my own brush that I could put on any nail. 

And it worked. 

I tried using a brush that came in a pack, but it was a lot of work to get it in the bottle.

And I also had a few other things that were out of my league.

For example, I couldn’t make it with my regular nail polish.

So I was looking for something that would have a little bit of that shine and I knew I needed a brush with a bit more longevity.

So the next morning, I got to work.

I started with the smallest brush I could find, and the brush I was using the most was this one that I made.

And then I started working on the brush.

And within a few minutes, I was getting all the polish I could possibly use on my nails.

It took me almost an hour to do it.
