A Roll In The Hague

…… with a little St. Patrick’s day on the side.

I have been anxious to get this deep vibrant orange polish on my nails for about 2 weeks now.  It was the main color I decided I needed from OPI’s Holland Collection.

But I had to give the Irish in me at least a little shout out.  Yes, I’ve got that Scot-Irish last name thing happening.  I have a  red-headed Irishman for a great-great or something.  So, I added a couple clovers.

How To Get Over the Loss of…well,… A Nail

So today I lost a dear friend…. my right thumbnail.  Happens to the best of them.IMG_2211[1]

It can be so heart-wrenching to lose something you’ve grown so attached to… you grew close for so long…
When the loss comes by a terrible tragedy like a rip from bending backward or slamming against a hard surface…. or is a loss below the “quick” (or hyponychium), you can experience physical pain… You need healing!

Whether physical or psychological… my approach:

MAKE A CLEAN BREAK!  Get rid of ALL of them.  Stop holding onto those ragged lengths.  Start afresh.  Your hands will look nicer….

And to soothe yourself…. find a new and wonderful, fun polish.   I did —->

pretty bright! almost neon when I first started the application.  took 3 coats to get decent coverage.  PERFECT for St. Patrick’s Day!  Might work with some design for the Christmas season too.

 

It might take a minute to get used the new “feel” of no nails… but it goes away quickly, I promise… I know I’ll get a lot more done… for a little while Smile.
