It’s been a month(?) since I posted the last time and nothing has changed other than me having a severe case of the blues this time of year. Thanks, Winter. I’m still trying to grow my nails out and it is not an easy road. They grow out some. They rip off. Lather, rinse, repeat. To be quite honest with you, I miss my acrylics. I don’t miss filling them every two weeks and doing a new set the first of each month but I miss them. That said, I am still not putting those things back on. I will continue to be patient because like seester says, “you can’t undo over twenty years of wearing acrylics in a few months.” She’s right. Mostly, I am rocking whatever treatment I am using at the moment but sometimes I will get a bug up my butt and put on a little color so here are just a few of the manicures that didn’t look THAT bad on my recovering nubs.
Apologies for the cellphone pics. I’ve not unpacked all my photography supplies yet. First up is OPI Taylor Blue with a little Pure as an accent. If you don’t have this blue, GET IT. Perfect little jelly!
Next up is some DIfferent Dimensions from indie polish maker, Missi Barry. She is just….a genius. I have been stalking her polishes for months but I’d always miss her restocks until one afternoon her holiday polishes came up. I snagged this little number called I Only Have Ice For You and my goodness, it is the prettiest thing ever. Here it is over China Glaze Sexagon and it is the sex. Totally in love with that polish and I wish I’d gotten a back up.
And now for the polish that made me stalk Different Dimensions in the first place…NESSIE’S REVENGE. GRASS GREEN HOLO! You all know green is one of my favorite colors but to add linear holo to it? I am in heaven. My nubs don’t even do this justice but the love I have in my heart for this polish is so pure that I can’t even stand it.
Totally in love with that polish and it is so much prettier in person and looks amazing on anybody. I hope seester posts her swatches so that you all can see because my nubs do it no justice. Anyway, I am still here. I’m still being patient. Laters.
