Red is a Lovely Color!


I was blow drying my hair when I noticed my 2.5 year old standing next to me with a bottle of empty red nail polish in his hands and on his clothes. I looked behind him to notice a lovely red trail that led from the middle of our upstairs hallway all the way to our bathroom (a good 20 feet). Took my husband and I over 3 hours to cut out the nail polish. Lesson learned!!

    aahhh haha. too bad it’s not washable like the crayola markers. Of course that would defeat the purpose of nail polish. you’d have to re-paint your nails every time you washed your hands.   🙂

    Well, thank God, he didn’t try to clean it up himself and smear it everywhere!

    Spot Shot takes nail polish out of carpet.  Even red nail polish out of grey carpet.  At least when I did it, it was my own mess to clean up. 🙂

    If it’s any consolation, that’s a fabulous red & I bet your nailed looked great while you were shimmying across the rug with those scissors.

    I hate to tell you this, but shaving cream would have taken it out. My daughter did the same thing with red nail polish and white carpet.

    I don’t have and I NEVER want children. Children ruin everything.
