Things I Have Neglected Since I Started Painting My Nails #267:
Reading books. Namely, just one book. I started it back in March 2015 and I’ve had 150 pages left to go for about 19 months. I want to get back to it so bad, though! I love to read. I have been an avid reader my entire life. In fact, I was so crazy about reading, I kept a spreadsheet of every book completed including number of pages and a rating system.
But now my little spreadsheet has cobwebs all over it and that crushes me. I struggle with balance in my life, you might say. I get so one-track focused on a hobby that I have zero room for anything else. For real, I stopped sweeping the floors and grocery shopping and leaving the house unless I was being paid to do it. The last issue of US Weekly I read, Angelina and Brad were still together. Imagine how sad I’ll be later!
So this might be a pre-cursor to a New Years Resolution or something. To set time limits on things, and to maybe venture outside every once in a while – for more than just checking the mail box for nail polish. We’ll see though. I kinda like wearing pajamas for 72 hours straight.
Here’s Digit-al Dozen Vampy day three:
This one was a pretty simple design, although I’ve never done it and wanted to for a really long time. It could be called a Ruffian mani, but it might just be an upside down French Tip for all I know. Either way, it’s super easy and looks so cool. Here’s what I used:
PURPLE – Glam Polish Magica de Spell, a color I just recently swatched and reviewed on this blog. It’s an awesome vampy shade, I think!
BLACK – I Scream Nails Licorice Twist, a one coat perfect creme.
VINYLS – What’s Up Nails Circle Tape, which can be used to create this design as well as half moons or french tips or whatever else you can think of – no limit!
BLACK STUDS – These could’ve came from so many places. I have a closet full of nail wheels of gems of every color. Just search for black nail art gems on Amazon – you’ll be amazed at how many choices there are. You’ll want them all. Or at least I did because self-control. As in, LACK THEREOF.
