So I had a nice time in Switzerland. I admit, I wasn’t really looking forward to going, because it’s a work trip that we do every year. It’s kind of a long journey, and there were problems on the train on the way there that meant we arrived over 3 hours late, but we had a giggle and we were really well received (as we usually are). And I had the opportunity to pack my bag full of chocolate before we got back. So overall, it was fun, but exhausting! Sorry for my radio silence since, I didn’t expect to be so worn out.
Unfortunately, I had to leave very early on Monday morning (my bus left at 6.20am), and literally 5 minutes before leaving, I totally snapped all the free edge of my right index finger 😦 but I’ve had some encouragement since (thanks especially to Vic!) and finally feel ready to get back to the blogging rhythm!
This first mani absolutely had to be black. As a kind of sign of mourning for my long nails (yes, I realise how melodramatic I’m being! bear with me). Of course, I used my favourite black, Camelot by A England. But when I saw the all-black nubbins, they looked so tiny, so severe, so… well, manly… that I couldn’t take it. I had to do something to make my hands look more feminine again! Inner Goddess by Different Dimension just felt right. So, my fingers still look wrong (to me, at least), and the ends of my fingers are still really sensitive; but here they are, the nubbins!
Inner Goddess is definitely one of those polishes that looks incredible over black! It’s certainly softened the blow for me…
So, love them or hate them, I’ll have to wait until they grow out. But in the meantime, I’ll be playing around with gel to try to extend them a little, I think… Watch this space!
