Some days it just isn't worth trying to do your frakking nails!
It took me almost an hour to remove all of that neon polish and those damned decals. I really need to get some stampnad type materials. Decals are officially on my suck list. Then, I had to do a little repair work... That took time because I have never done this, before. But with a little glue, a tea bag and a pair of scissors, I have the nails that I would have otherwise had to file way down and start over.
A corner on each thumb had peeled a little, I had a tear that I have been nursing along with glue, alone on my right bird finger, I think that the bit of tea bag will definitely help and I had a little tear on my right ring, just where the free white edge starts. I can see the repairs but they aren't glaringly obvious, so I can definitely live with them. I think that three coats of polish would do a better job making everything nice and smooth and prettier. :)
Thus the toil.
Now the bubbles. I did my mani with two coats of Orly It's Up To Blue. I thought that I love this polish... I am just not so sure, anymore. It bubbled like a sonofabitch on me, my top coat bubbled like crazy, I have a bald spot on my right ring finger and some VNL in the right light. And to top it off, I did a shit job painting my nails and they look like dog barf.
On a stick.
At least this polish is a dream to clean up! I made a right mess of it, polish all over the joint and I had it all cleaned up and shaped in no time, flat. :D
But I am too burned out and sick of mucking with them to redo them, tonight. Tomorrow or the next day will be soon enough.
And I really need a new bottle of Seche. This Out the Door shit is driving me over the edge.
I think it may be time to file my nails down a bit. My left middle is beginning to curl and while I like the length, they are getting more and more fragile. Hmmm... My right pinkie nail is also starting to curl... Definitely time to take them down a bit.
Okay, to the pics of the yuk, as I am obligated to post the good, the bad and the ugly about my nails on my nail blog. ;) lol
My craptacular polish job in indoor light, no flash.
In outdoor early evening sun.
Right hand... Evening sun. Bubbles and repairs. And bald spots. A third coat would have helped... If not for the bubbles and stuff. Bah!
Now, I am under no illusion that I am a fabulous self manicurist. But I can and usually do a whole lot better than this. Blech! I will most likely get rid of this mess after I do all my housework and toilet scrubbing, tomorrow. This doesn't look like much, but it should be protective. lol
