Nice Nails # 7

One day, I will be up to date with these Nice Nails posts. The only reason that I have any confidence that this will happen is because there is not a lot of words to each post, and because I have let my nails go rather of late. And so haven't been taking pictures. And so there's no posts to write. 

Before you look at these pictures and start worrying that I've gone all goth/emo/scene (Mom), let me explain. I have not gone in for an alternative fashion (I spend most of my time in pajamas anyway), I was going for a Bonfire Night theme. Due to Bonfire Night being more than 3 months ago we will go with a...

Can anyone think about why someone would have fireworks in February? When someone does, that's why my nails look alarmingly (Mom) dark. 

You can't really see with my dodgy pictures, but...

Actually, due to my hands both being in the picture, Mom took the pictures. For once, it's not me. 

You can't really see with THE dodgy pictures, but these nails are really cool. They sparkled. Oh, do they sparkle. Oh, they sparkled. 

Just take it from me, they were a lot better than they look in these photos. To be honest, I don't even know why I bother showing you, but hey ho. 

Just use your imagination. Please? 

Nice Nails # 6

It's a well known fact. All the best bloggers have big massive gaps when they don't publish a post for coming close to two months. You didn't know that? You should. It's the sign of a really professional blogger. Seriously. 

In my defense, I've spent more than half of that time without my laptop. And a lot of the rest of the time I've been asleep. And the rest of the time?

I wanna have some resemblance of a life you know. I wanna DO things (like pretend I can cook). I don't wanna spend all my spare time glued to my laptop. Especially as sometimes it doesn't work. (It's nearing retirement age. Laptops do not have to work till they are 65.) 

Although in a unexpected twist, it was a problem with the router which meant that I couldn't blog last night. It did said to fix the problem with the wireless connection I should try connecting it up with a cable. Little laptop, you and me are going to have a little chat about the meaning of the word WIRELESS. It means WITHOUT a wire or a cable. 

So do you like my nails. I think that I had these in about November. 

Yeah, I really am that behind. Just wait till you get the post on my New Years resolutions. 

These nails were painted red with a little bit of glitz to match the Boots Christmas catalogue. How about, because it's February, we pretend that they are to match the Canadian men's hockey team, because they are currently (as I write) winning the gold medal match. 

My aunt did these for me. (You can tell, they are so much better than anything that me and my Mom try and do.) She very kindly used her polish, because she has a lot more than me. 

Do you not find, that with nail polish, you want quite a few so that you have a wide range to choose from, but if you have a lot, you're alternating and so you don't use each individual one all that much, and then they get old and claggy. It's just a loose loose situation. Unlike the hockey match, where both teams are guaranteed to at least have a silver. 

Yeah, I'm supporting Canada. 

If any body asks. 

Please don't anybody ask.
