It took a helluva lot of work, but I did it. I have a 'B'. In a college level course. So it counts as an 'A'. I HAVE AN 'A'!!!!!!!
I got my polish back, but I'm supposed to spend less time on it (I won't).
The biggest thing I learned from these past few polish-less weeks is that I don't do my nails to go 'ooooh, shiney', I do them because it's my daily ritual, it makes me ME. You know?
There's not a lot that's unique about me, I'm not especially good at any sport, I'm not extraordinarily smart. But this little act, my nails looking good everyday, was mine. Mine. And it actually hurt a lot to have it taken away.
Recently I was doubting this blog, there aren't a lot of comments, followers, and I felt that I was spending a lot of time and money on polish when I myself didn't know why. But taking this (mandatory) break really re-kindled my love. Yeah, it's just nail polish, but it's my quirk. I can't wait to begin rocking neons again :)


  1. I've missed your updates! I don't think I've ever commented before, but I do read your blog and I like seeing your manicures! I'm glad you're back! Don't doubt this blog, there are people who do read it and enjoy it. Anyway we all spend money on polish because we like it, not just to blog about it right?

  2. Hey, its olivia from your school... told you i checked the blong :]. great job conquering razeck!!! wooohooooo!!
    cant wait for more great nails!

  3. Hey Olivia! Thank you for being the most nail-addicty person I actually know in real life. The fact that you check my blog makes me laugh. And smile. In a good way, I promise.
    Cheryl, thank you so much! I just wasn't enjoying color anymore but now I am for sure.

  4. I'm so glad you got your polish back. I'm MUCH older than you -- I have 3 elementary school aged kids and one in middle school. For me, painting my nails is a way to make me, me, too. I feel like I get to prioritize myself and spend time relaxing. I'm so impressed that you can see this as such a young person. Please don't ever let go of what makes you, you!

  5. YAY!!!!!! I missed you! :) *hugs* And nail polish is my daily ritual - at the end of the day after dinner & dishes are done I sit in front of the TV and paint my nails. My day doesn't feel right if I don't do that.


Hey! I love reading all of your comments!
