My Nails!

So I went down hard with a stomach bug last week and spent waaaay too much time on YouTube watching nail art how-to videos.

And I messed around with my daughter’s polish stash, as you can see above.
Then I broke my pinkie nail on Thursday night:

I don’t always break a nail to the quick, but when I do? It is right after my first mani in a year!


So I decided to take a cheat from one of my newly found YouTube nail gurus and glued on a fake.

I wanted to do a gradient, but had no latex cuticle barrier, so made nail decal, or ten. They came out like this: 

But then we bottled wine, I didn’t don gloves and had my nails in sanitizer all afternoon.

So I killed that mani and thought I would do a cool chevron patrern. Except that I purchased cheap vinyls and they opted not to sick (the few I was actually able to peel off the backing.) (These would be Kiss Design Perfection2, picked up at Walmart earlier today.) There is an email to them forthcoming.

So the chevron idea I had died on the vine, and I was able to get the French mani curves off of the paper backing an came up with the following, that I don’t love, but it is too late to change it now:  

So, as my designs evolve, I will share here.

Next time? I finally got around to getting my pistol purchase permit.

    She lives! How’ve ya been, Jules? I hope that the holidays were good for you. Any wine projects this year?

    • Hi, Rob!!!!! 🙂

      I have been ridiculously busy between work, the grandkids, the baking, and yes! The wine! We just bottled almost three cases this weekend. One Hell Hath No Fury red, one Sweet Carlos & Tara white, and some blackberry.

      We are starting a batch of sweet red this evening, and are going to try our hand at a blush later in the week.

      Holidays? A-MAZING! Hope yours were as well! I need to hit your blog and get caught up!

        You’ve been missed, that’s for sure! 💗 Yes, my holidays were very good, but I’m happy to be in the pre-spring mode, looking for flowers and sunshine.

        • Dude! I am so over winter…We had a glaze of ice and some flurries, and I’m just done. I’m ready to garden and live outside.

          I’m glad you missed me! We’ve been hopping at work. New director (Steve….errrr….he who shall not be named…retired) and I’m trying to put a supervisor into my Transport Department, and it’s non-stop balls to the wall!
