Nope. I am not planning to go nor did I just finish… And I’m not currently. Lol
But my nails look like bowling pins. So….
China Glaze Geláze- “Turned Up Turquoise” & “White On White”
OPI – “Can’t aFjörd Not To”
I did this before…a long time ago. —> “Color Picnic”
I love color. And since its so gloomy, I needed a little brightness.
ibd Just Gel – “Rocco“
OPI – “Greenwich Village”
craftsmart acrylic paint – “Ocean Breeze”
craftsmart acrylic paint – “Ocean Breeze”, “Orange”, “Grape Taffy”, “Grey”
OPI – “Green-wich Village”, “Modern Girl”, “Pink-ing of You”, “Can’t Find My Czechbook”
I was inspired by this very sheer and lightly tinted “correcting” polish from Zoya.
It looks soooo pretty and finished on people’s nails. Non-intrusive and apparently wears extremely well and nourishes the nail.
But since I’m fully committed to being ’bout this no-chip life…
ibd Just Gel – “Cashmere Blush”
You can barely tell there is polish. Best neutral look ever.
And here are my nails before the polish:
I can say with fervor and honest conviction that I HATE THE DENTIST.
As I’m writing this my whole face is throbbing in pain and all I can take right now is ibuprofen every six hours…. And it’s not helping.
I’m not sure why I, at all, thought it was a good idea to have a root canal procedure done just before a holiday… But I was just trying to get it done. Well, it backfired.
I’m stuck here in pain with only brief moments of mental clarity because tooth pain will wipe out consciousness, I swear. Tons of tears. And just as much anger.
And yes this is a nail blog.
At one of my dentists’ offices where I am being highway robbed, I’m certain…one of the dental assistants had the cutest nails ever. So I told her I was copying. 😁 I caught a glimpse of them while she was operating the 3D x-ray imaging machine that after I pay for, probably, will prevent me from buying groceries or gas for my car for the next 6 months. (More time to paint my nails, I suppose.)
Initially I was planning to do the color “peach” in place of “pink”. But I ended up completely copying her style. Lol.
Thank you, Trish, for the inspiration. I am certain I’ll be seeing you again sooner that I even want.
I HATE THE DENTIST! Is there a word stronger than “hate”?
After this post I’m consulting a thesaurus.
ibd Just Gel – “Ingénue”
ibd Just Gel – “Black Lava”
(Dots – craftsmart acrylic paint in “White/Blanc”)
Good “old fashioned”, “classic” French manicure on the scene.
Can never go wrong with this.
gelish – “Sheek White” & “Little Princess”
My nails feel kinda happy right now. I’m going to try to keep them that way. Lol
I’m obviously just really bad at nail stickers.
I found the CUTEST nail stickers ever in this loud cheetah print. LOVED them. I’ve been saving them for when my nails finally decided to cooperate and act reasonable.
And because I wanted them to last I anticipated using no-chip polish to seal them in so they would have some staying power.
These stickers were curling and peeling from my nails before I barely finished applying the top coat.
Still wanted the design… So I re-grouped… And did it myself. 😁😁

I changed the colors around and all. First, because I don’t have any bright ass neon yellow no-chip polish. Lol
ibd Just Gel – “Inky Pinky”
craftsmart acrylic paint in “Orange”
OPI – “Nein!Nein!Nein! Ok Fine!”
I think it was a decent replication.
