If you follow me on Twitter, then you know that my brand new boots and I had a little bit of an accident on Saturday night. When I was in ULTA, I accidentally dropped a set of three nail polishes on the ground and the gold glitter polish in the set broke open and splattered all over my boots. It was like one of those slow motion moments in the movies. I screamed "Noooooooo" and reached my hand out to catch them, but I just wasn't fast enough :/
After it happened, I just stood there in complete shock for a few seconds. How could this be happening? I had only worn the boots for a total of 4hrs since I got them! Then I went into action mode. I ran over to the tissues and started trying to wipe the polish off the boots. Some of it came off, but quite a bit of it didn't because the polish was already starting to dry. My husband, trying to be helpful, grabbed a random bottle of liquid at those stations where you can try on makeup and told me to spray that on my boots. Um, no? Then some woman came over to me and told me to go home and put either vaseline or non-acetone nail polish remover on them. I passed on her suggestion too. I'm no boot expert, but that just didn't sound right to me.
After that, I just went home and sulked. I know they're just boots and it could have been a lot worse (there were red and pink polishes in that set too), but it was my first day wearing them! My husband told me to rock the splattered glitter nail polish look and to try and make it the next big trend in 2012. Think it would catch on?
Do any of you have any tips on how to get the nail polish off my boots? Will it eventually come off or is it stuck on them forever? Should I attempt to clean them myself or take them to a professional?
