I'm Alive!


I've been busy busy and frankly haven't been super inspired to make blog posts.  I'm still changing my nails every other day or so though, don't worry :D

I recently had a number of catastrophic breaks on my right hand that resulted in sticking a few fake nails on.  I just couldn't bring myself to cut all of my nails off.  When I finally removed them, the damage they did to my natural nails made me freak out so much that I just bit the bullet and cut them all down.  Now I'm working on rebuilding some healthier (albeit much shorter than I'd like) nails.

I did these last night, so excuse the slight bit of tip wear from today.

click to make big!

I got this idea from this tutorial from Chloe's Nails.  I did alternating nails a base coat of either OPI Warm & Fozzie (the gold) and OPI Your Royal Shine-ness, taped a nail off, and did a V of Sally Hansen Black Out.  There are multiple layers of Seche Vite on these nails (see the lovely bubbling I got on my ring finger?)

Please excuse my less than stellar cuticles, this was a very impromptu decision to take some pictures and make a little blog post to show that I'm still alive.

Yayyy taping!
