Long story short; Real-life got really, really stupidly, insanely busy. I was doing an internship, I moved back home (from Vancouver to Montreal) for the Summer and now I have time to dedicate myself heart and nails to this blog again. And not only to updating, but to actually taking care of my nails.
I warn you now, the following picture might be a bit...gruesome, but there's a happy ending - hopefully!
On the left, the poor state of my nails for a while now. That's how busy I've been. Theatre life isn't a joke and when you're go-go-going you don't stop. Since it's such a hands-on thing too, nails are the first to suffer - especially mine, which are such weak little nubs. They try their best! But finally I could give myself a more than deserved manicure and start tending to my nubs re-growth.
After cutting and trimming and filing and taking care of my cuticles, I moisturized my nails and washed them really well before applying Revlon's Post Trauma Nail Treatment, which is my go-to base coat. I've recently gotten a BUNCH of Zoya Color Cutie Collection (aka Zoya Mini's) from Nail Polish Canada that I'm dying to show you, so since I couldn't wait I picked one of the lighter shades to work with, this one is called Blu.
And then, to add a little more glam, I finished it up with some silver striping tape and topped it off with 2 coats of Revlon's Quick Dry, which is my go-to top coat. (Fun story: I made my Mother go with me to 3 different stores to buy more because mine had run out, and even then I managed to grab the very last one!)
Stay tuned for more to come! I'm excited. Are you excited?!
