And she adds “It’s interesting because my daughter is now three, and she’s doing great and in school three days a week. I really have this housewife situation where my son has obviously been in school for some time and my daughter’s not a baby anymore, so what do you do? You’ve got this free time, and you can only lunch and exercise so much.
“So with the help of Josh, we started this nail polish line called Pop of Color. I’m really, really excited…”
The line up includes 12 colors, priced at $8 a bottle. The colors are named after Taekman’s personal life, including an army green named Cash after her son. and a bronze called Mommy.
