Mr. Bella doesn't always pay that much attention to beauty ("Why would you do that to your face?" is his refrain when confronted with an issue, any issue, of my beloved Vogue). Last week, though, my beauty junkie habits definitely came in handy. His bike got dinged and some of the paint chipped off. He was worried about rust and further chipping, and a new paint job is incredibly expensive, so I suggested we try nail polish. It might seem like an odd choice, but nothing comes in more colors and hardens to protect the way nail lacquer does. We found a perfect red, called GoGo Girl, aptly enough, at Walgreens for only $2, and the the paint job looks great.
