Ok so they’re not exactly celebrities, more like “celebrities” but CBS’s Big Brother and it’s cast is one of my guiltiest pleasures. My summer addiction. I subscribe to the live feeds, watch the online talk show and vote in all their silly polls. My secret is out, I’m a reality TV addict.
Not only do I love to catch all the drama, showmances and random acts of silliness on the live feeds but I also love getting to see the beauty regimes of the contestants. I know it sounds odd but being a product junkie, I like to see what products other people use and how they use them. This season, one ritual has stood out. Not so surprisingly, it’s the hamsters’ (as the online communities call them) focus on nails.
Now I’ve always caught contestants giving themselves pedis over the years but never before has polish been as noticeable as it is this season. And the girls aren’t the only ones getting in on the act.
Nick, the hunky All-American stud from Minnesota, who’s super comfortable in his sexuality and crushing hardcore on Daniele has been letting her play manicurist on his hands. I’m not a fan of the hot pink but I give him credit for sporting such a bold shade in front of millions of people with pride.
Then there’s the tattooed, rocker wanna be, Evil Dick (a self appointed moniker), who in the tradition of many a rock star (e.g. Dave Navarro) is “rockin” black nails. It works for him and after watching so many hours of him on my laptop, it would be odd to see him with bare nails.
