So much of my journey is about finding how to love my body.
These past few years, I’ve largely stopped wearing makeup – not because I don’t want to, but because somewhere deep down, I felt I didn’t deserve to feel pretty. I know this needs to change, so I’ve started with nail polish.
In 2015, our family spent 3 amazing days at Disneyland. For the occasion, my daughter and I wore matching glitter nail polish – a touch of pixie dust for our magical adventure. Our little cheap bottle was enough for the trip, but it didn’t last much longer.
A year or so later, feeling sad about missing Disneyland, I decided to buy a bigger bottle of glitter nail polish, something I could wear all the time. I spotted the silver glitter ‘Make Light Of The Situation’ nail polish by OPI, and promptly wore it all the time – I only have a tiny bit left now.
I have a soft spot for that nail polish, it always made me feel happy when I saw my glittery nails – like pixie dust magic. So I recently decided to add a few more colours to my nail polish range.
Now, I have a small little collection of OPI nail polishes – even better, two of them were free via reward points! It was great to be able to treat myself without paying anything.

Wearing nail polish is helping me to feel pretty again, and to feel good about looking good. My hands are in my field of view constantly, as I spend so much of my day either at the computer or on my iPad. A simple trick, but it has made a difference in helping me feel positive about my appearance. A small step on my road to body positivity.
