    Ok... so, being the country, farm girl that I am... I have worn nail polish a handful of times in my life. My son is getting married next week and I found an OLD bottle of fingernail polish - I mean like years and years old - and am wondering if there is any reason that I shouldn't use it?

    it will probably be clumpy, get fresh for the special occasion and it can then match better what you are wearing (or get clear)

    Try it now and see if you like it. You have plenty of time between now and the wedding to get some polish remover and new polish if the way it turned out doesn't appeal to you.

    On my fingers (i do rough work) it lasts about 30 minutes at best. Never a full day. Toenail polish lasts much longer on me- up to 3 weeks. [​IMG]

    I had a French Manicure (no fake nails added on) for my wedding. I love that look! [​IMG]

    If it gets clumpy you can try adding a drop of remover to thin the clumps, doesn't always work.

    I keep mine in the fridge, supposedly that makes them last longer.

    But considering how rarely I put any on... really no telling.

    If it's "spreadable" then it's useable.

    Try it on and see if it works... otherwise, go to the grocery store and pick up some fresh stuff. [​IMG]
