I like to get my nails done. If you have been around me for any more than 5 minutes you know I like sparkly, painted, fun nails. I usually have acrylic nails. My own real nails that live under the layer of plastic have been bendy, easily broken and very thin through my whole life.
I also have some issues with my cuticles if I don’t keep my nails up. It’s not pretty. For some reason they are really dry no matter how much lotion I slather or what it’s made of. Then little dry skin bits are there and they bother me so I do something I shouldn’t I pick the off. Then things get worse…and worse.
I let my nails go a couple of weeks ago. I needed a fill and didn’t have time or budget for it so I took them off and was trying to live with naked fingers. But then yesterday I remembered that in just a couple of weeks I’ll be in Colorado taping some videos for Interweave and my fingers are not attractive and I expect that people will want to see me spin – which may include closeups of my hands.
Today I went to my favorite lady. Her name is Tracy and she is the owner of Nails Studio here in Howell. I’ve been going there for at least 10 years now. She always fixes me up.
Here is what she did for me today.
The nails are beautiful. The cuticles need some healing time. But there is hope.
This is what my nails looked like when I went to do the photo shoot for my book 18 months ago.
See? All will be well. Boring and lacking sparkle for the videos but at least my fingers will look healthy.
OK. One more thing checked off the list. Back to work.
