Silliness: Quarantine Manicure Reminds Me of FL Messages in this topic - RSS

So, I always do my nails, it’s not really a quarantine manicure, it’s just my most recent (but also a new set of nails, a set that’s brand new to the company, so I’ve never had them).

Once I had them all laid out for fitting, I noticed they don’t stay quite the same colours depending on the light. The tips suddenly made me thing of irrigo in a certain light, but it fades to a silvered colour in another light. Like how gant is sometimes described when it’s not invisible (get it? It’s invisible when they look irrigo).

Anyway, I was entertained enough that for the first time ever, I broke a set. I did an accent nail from an old set. One black nail, for the NORTH. For the Masters. For the dark of the ‘Neath.... take your pick. It felt appropriate.

It's only when you cannot hear the bats, that is when the bats are coming. This is the only advice I have to give.

Thank you! Me too. They are fascinating to watch in real life. It’s why I shared. I’ve had a lot of their nails over the years that shift colours, have wild finishes... but these were the first that I was like “Hey, the ‘Neath folks might like these!”

Gorgeous. I wish I had that talent; they look wonderful.
In a funny aside, we are cautiously exiting lockdown here in Greece and the beuτy salons will be among the first things to open "for psychological reasons." I never imagined a gorevment official would "get it" so perfectly.

No talent, it's a glue on nail set from Marmalade. I've been doing them at home for years. They stay on about 2-3 weeks (& they do stay on... I've had sets on while helping do yard work with my mum & demolition on our house & stuff. Stuff that should break nails). My natural nails are messed up due to medication, so I hide them with the shiny.
Mostly for myself. I type so much that looking at my natural nails is a NOPE. so I understand the "psychological reasons" if I didn't do them myself.
