Doing my Own Nails: Mint Green, Grey & Chrome…

If there’s one thing us nail techs quite often find a drag it’s doing our own nails… I guess it’s kind of like a gardener not being arsed enough to keep his own lawn manicured or a hair-dresser overlooking her mass of split ends. It takes multiple cups of tea and a firm talking to in order to get me at my nail desk for some TLC of my own… not to mention the task of doing the non-dominant hand too – arrrghh! Yet on the other hand (excuse the pun) I could sit and watch YouTube videos from my fav nail gurus for hours without a single grumble – if anything, there’s something slightly therapeutic about it.

So if you’ve got a few minutes to burn and fancy seeing how I tackle bringing my own pinkies to life then why not get yourself comfy & hit the play button… if you’re feeling super generous you might even want to subscribe to keep up with my latest uploads – which you can do by *Clicking Here*

Anyways, more from me when I’ve recovered from my dose of the winter lurgies…. yes, I’m huddled up drinking copious amount of Lucozade and munching my way through vitamins to lift the aches a little quicker with any luck.

Cheerio Chums…

  1. Karen!!! I am back (a little late) but back nontheless. I hope 2017 is treating you well, my dear. How are things? So much to catch up on it’s crazy.. I’ll be back soon to catch up on some of your blogs – loving the new vlog style too – nails are looking gorgeous! xxxxxx


      • Katy I’m getting on so sparsely these days – lots going on and I’m desperately trying to keep up with the pace! lol I’m looking forward to it all settling by mid-late April so I can get back into blogging like I used to be. Miss you guys soooo much though 😥 XXXX

      • Awww I miss you too!! ❤ I haven’t gotten on here as much as I’d like. I’m having a lot of health issues right now, I’m sure you understand. I have so many appointments and tests coming up…Hopefully it will slow down by June for me. I try to post here and there, but I feel bad i don’t get on as much to read everyone’s posts. I’ve had really bad pain lately. I also can’t forget that I’m going to be moving to a new place soon lol. Ron and I are going to look at a place we’re really interested in tomorrow. So much to do!! Lol xxxx

      • Awwh me too Katie – and with everything going on and being so busy too it just makes it 10 times harder!
        Oh no I’m really sorry to hear about all your hospital visits… it’s such a pain tripping back and forward for all these things! You can only do what you can huni, and that’s what I realised earlier this year -I had to take a step back from blogging to prioritise other things. I miss being on sooo much but I know (for the time being) it needs to be done! Are you moving again huni? Wow, that’ll be nice – a fresh start! It’s just the boxing up and shifting that kills me lol I wish I had a team of people to do it for me! Hope it all goes really well XXX

      • Thank you so much Karen! ❤ Yes, we’re finally going to be moving to a bigger place soon! We’ve been wanting to for a long time now. My doctors appointments seem to be never ending lol. I just got a new diagnosis from a dermatologist and I have Rosacea. Red bumps all over my face. They even cut one off to put under a microscope to confirm. So I have a suture in the side of my face I need to go get removed this week. I just have to take a specific antibiotic twice a day for a while and use a topical cream on my skin twice a day. Thursday I have to have a bone density scan and stop into the lab this week to have more repeat lab work lol. I hope all is well with you and your health!! Xxx
