ARGH MY NAILS!

To the people on my MSN list who msged me to say you're sorry about my nails. I'm sorry to the blog readers who happen to read this post due to the title as well. You see..

You

Were

All

Conned

Over

This...



Chipped!


I'm sorry I was over-exaggerating over a small-itty-bitty chip; but being a nail perfectionist, I just couldn't stand that my manicure has been reduced from this...

naills

to the above.

"So what harh? Nail chip only marh! Not like nail broke the flesh turn black and got gangrene."

It's quite a terrible feeling, really. I have a great passion for perfectly 'coiffed' nails, so to speak and the sight of a small little chip is enough to bring me to the brink of psychological distress. I am terribly hooked to the grooming of my cartilage. That every bit of my nail keeping has to be in order with not even the sight of a smear of polish at the sides of my skin will be tolerated.

And since I don't believe in paying people to do the job for me; I later took sometime to immobilise myself on my desk filing, shaping, soaking, buffing, moisturising, scrubbing, mixing colours, base-coating, base-colour-polishing and top coating everything to produce something that will last me hopefully last me slightly more than a week.
Hey hey, nicely done!
An idea only hit me later after admiring my latest do...

Crap. I'm a nail perfectionist.
