Fancy nails, blank moods.
Yesterday like an egomaniac I was bragging to my healthcare lady about how life is the best & in the summer I never get depressed. I didn’t knock wood, but maybe I should have.
Today I woke up and the “feels like” portion of the weather report was in the ’40s. I feel like a tube of toothpaste being squeezed. Being weather sensitive is just shitty, straight up. I miss my partner & all the pals I only get to see when he is home.
When I work in the evenings I often pressure myself to do a full day’s worth of errands beforehand, but today I ripped my to-do list in half and focussed on keeping my shit together.
Took a nap before noon. Made many iced americanos. Listened to a bunch of podcasts. Did my nails.
I think manicures help because they demand that I focus & stay still but they aren’t actually difficult. They’re temporary so it doesn’t really matter if they look perfect. This particular design was inspired by something I saw on The Dainty Squid, but desaturated, obviously. Black & grey forever. I am also really into designs that leave some of your natural nail exposed.
Since some of y’all think these things happen by magic, I’ll let you know that they were done by adding straight nail stickers over some base coat, painting the grey tips, then peeling the stickers off. Kinda like when you paint a wall. I added the dots & heart using the tip of an old plastic knitting needle.
& while we’re talkin’ about good music, Nick has sent me the link to this new Dan Romano song like fifty times. Nick, I listened to it & it’s awesome, okay? PS everyone else: check out that pedal steel action.
