Adding insult to injury

To add insult to injury, the side of my index nail (that I glued) became brittle and ended up breaking off.  So now, not only do I have an extremely short finger nail, I also have a crooked one.  Sigh...

While I’m waiting for my crooked index nail to grow out, (which is probably going to take a few weeks) I will be using my right hand for pictures and keeping the rest of my nails short.  And since I probably won’t be doing any nail art for a while, I figured that I would start something new:  “Shorty Swatches” using random polishes that I have in my “unworn/untried” box.  Here is the first instalment.  Hope you enjoy!

Boo, Sigh, Hiss...

While helping a friend move, the unthinkable happened.  Yup.  You guessed it...  SNAP!  My left index fingernail got caught up on a bunch of clothes hangers and  split WAY back on the nail bed.  So I glued the split, cut and filed all ten nails down to little shorties.   This is what they look like now.  Boo, sigh, hiss...
