Thank you bizi! I really do enjoy it, I felt so empty for the couple years here that I haven't been able to write. It just irritates me and frustrates me in a deep way unlike it used to, it used to flow in such a way I merely felt like I was channeling the words, they would just come any time I sat down. Now? I can only do that for my nail blog, for which I am still very grateful for, but the books and stories seem to be gone. I had hoped dropping the abilify down to 10 mgs like I did a year ago would bring my creativity for writing back but no such luck. I am just delighted to have nail art though, because I was in desperate need of a viable creative outlet again.
Aww those nails are really cool! It looks like she even free handed them! Very cool!
I am sorry the pedicure wasn't really good, I think a lot of it depends on the nail tech you end up with. I haven't had one in ages, but with the missing toenail on the index toe, well I don't really see much reason for one. I do pain the other four nails but I just can't really be bothered with doing it regularly. I wish the nail tech you'd had, had had a better touch, that's so important, because the massage is meant to be relaxing and fun but it can be a real turn off and annoying if done in a rushed or half-butted manner. Was that the problem? That it was the massage part you ended up not liking Mari?
I think these tie dyed shirts Jack is up to would look cool with water marbled nails. I really enjoy his tie dyed stuff, this is a better pic of the shirt:
Thank you for the kind words about my appearance waves, I really have felt insecure about it since losing teeth up top. I am still putting off getting a denture, just so scared about it, that's one thing I really hate that I let go of when I was depression, taking good care of my teeth, I am sure paying for it now. I know when I get a denture it will be better in the long run, but I am just scared of the part where they take out the 7 teeth I have left, you know? I figure as long as I can still chew on the few I have that I CAN chew with, I can put it off....but enough about that. I think when the top ones go it's over, they're going to have to get me set up with a top denture and that's it.
Some people do swatch polish on one nail, but I was testing those out for stamping for someone on the nail board I go to, so I didn't want to stamp over my manicure, so I used my stamper on the index card and got pretty good results for the polishes I was testing out. I think the water marbles are the most striking though. I trimmed the cards down and glued them onto one index card so I'd have them together.
I love our iced tea jug, it's just an old juice jug, but we try to keep it full, iced tea has always been a staple in any house I've lived in.
