Calico

I remember first learning about “calico” from my grandparents’ cat.

Oddly, I liked that cat….. but I no longer possess that sentiment about animals.

I don’t hate them, I guess…. but I don’t want them around me.  I don’t like animal hair… or dander.  I’m allergic.

That is what my brain cells have been doing for the past month or so.

Xcape–Just Kickin’ It

I cut my nails off.

And while I have been enjoying the level of productivity that occurs each time I “start over” on my nail growth, I haven’t decided on any nail art that I even want on my nails right now.  It feels almost weird.

I have been seeing a lot of nude colored nails recently.  And I’m loving the clean, non-contrasting look of them all. 

I started with a little pink… gelish – “Pink Smoothie

I got some really kind compliments on these dots.  Dots never fail to make the best impressions apparently.  🙂


It’s been a while since my last post, but I have been taking care of my nails.  I wore this beautiful red for a solid 2 weeks!!!  AND with no design….. can’t even believe that. 

gelish – “Hot Rod Red

Pharrell

Ever since I saw the Jay Z mini- movie during Game 6 of the NBA Finals, I was obsessing over Pharrell’s cap….. and his style. 

Everyone can’t do this!!!!!  That hat is EVERYTHING! Smile …and now so are my nails!

My Nails

Though I feel like I’ve been neglecting my blog…. I haven’t really been neglecting my nails.   So… this is just me playing instant catch up. 

Currently:

This is a no-chip design, so I’ll try to get good wear time out of all the time it took to actually paint them.  Smile
