Happy New-ish Year! I'm still getting back into the swing of things after the whole car accident thing, but I actually felt like blogging today. Yay! Speaking of yay...I have a new car! Brand new! Six years until it's really mine, but still. Yay! My car isn't the only thing that's new. There's also this...
|Sally Hansen Shelling Secrets|
As much as I love having long nails, it hits a point where they're more hassle than they're worth. Shaping becomes difficult, especially for my wonky right index. They get in the way too. Still too busy and/or tired to actually do my nails on New Years Eve, I put two coats of Pahlish Fields Of Gold over my previous mani. My gel was lifting a bit, my nails were losing their shape...it looked bad. I didn't take a single photo. Shortening my nails had been a temptation for weeks, but that was the clincher. I was originally just going to reshape and redo my gel, but all of a sudden I grabbed my tiny scissors and clipped a few millimeters off. The shock of such a drastic change was almost completely overridden by how much I love this length.
I bought Shelling Secrets in the latest CVS beauty clearance, so it was right there at my desk. Buying it and wearing it were both complete whims...but I'm so glad I did. This is three coats and I didn't have any issues with streaking at all. It looks a bit pink in the bottle, but the sheerness makes it a barely there "MNBB" kind of thing. It's fresh and clean and exactly what I've needed. I highly recommend it.
So new year, new car, "new" nails...I'm feeling pretty good about all of it. Yay again! Hope your new year is off to a good start too. I probably won't post again until next week, because I still don't have a working computer. See you next week, I guess. I have SO MUCH I want to swatch and I'm so ready to get back to it!
