Sorry I haven’t updated in a while! Since my last post, I finished my shelf exam for internal medicine, started my neurology rotation, lost my phone, aaand it was my birthday. So I’d say I’ve stayed pretty busy. This manicure was done using those nail polish strips by Sally Hansen called Salon Effects in Venom Vixen, which is an intense red snakeskin. I messed up one of the tips, so instead of fixing it, I just covered it with gold glitter using Speciallita Hits MTV in Golden Disco. I’ll admit, I’m being lazy this week.
While I do like mustaches on men, I’m not a fan of the mustache trend. I don’t really understand the trend of the finger mustache tattoo, but to each his/her own. However, I can get behind prostate cancer and men’s health. So, I put some ‘staches on my nails in celebration of No Shave November and the November Polish Days Event. The polish is Speciallita Hits No Olimpo in Hermes. It’s a pretty nice holographic, but I didn’t get a chance to photograph it outside.
Some quick pics of what I had on today. The red is Speciallita Hits No Olimpo in Ares and the gold is Jade Mystic Gold. The stamp was Cheeky plate CH 37 from the summer collection (love the packaging!) using Essie Scarlett O’Hara.
I usually try to not wear red when I’m working during the week, but sometimes I can’t help it. My patient commented on my nails, so much for being subtle!
I’m almost making progress on growing out my nails a bit. I’ve been using Mavala Scientifique nail hardener to help prevent my nails from peeling like they always do. I’ll keep you updated about how it works, it’s only been a week.
