1. I started my internship. It takes up SO MUCH of my time and is SO stressful, that I completely chewed off all my nails into tiny nubbins... and THEN I started working on the cuticles. Not only that, but I've been super concerned with what is appropriate for work, and what isn't as far as nails/nail art. And I have a confession: I wore the same mani for two weeks in a row. And I'm using the term mani here very loosely- I slapped on two coats of a sheer polish with no base or topcoat and just called that good- for TWO WEEKS. By the time I took it off last night, the polish was only in the very center of my nail, and my ridges had actually worn through in some places! It was disgusting.
2. I lost my Seche Vite!!!!!! I don't know how that happened :( But I kept saying to myself "no point in spending time on doing my nails if I can't use my SV. I'll do my nails when I find it." I hardly even looked! Well last night I tore my house apart and there's no sign of it, so I just did my nails anyway, because I'd finally reached my limit.
So anyway, like I said, I finally hit my limit last night and said "enough is enough!" Plus I had just seen this tutorial from Rebecca Like Nails, and was all over it like white on rice. I love a good floral mani, and even though I was a little nervous to wear it to my internship, I figured go big or go home.
