I'm still here, still alive ... mostly. I think. I've been sick for several days, actually missed some work, and I've been so drained I couldn't even make good use of the time by getting some posting done, literally all I've done is sleep.
Anyway, excuses out of the way - I have an absolute crapload of pics to edit. I still have one mani from 2011 I haven't posted yet. I need to just sit down & edit & post but I don't know when I'll have time so here are some naked nails from the past month.
At the beginning of the month I put some fresh patches on; when I changed them this past weekend I decided it was also past time for a chop. A full centimeter is lovely, probably my preferred length, but difficult to deal with & all but impossible to fit gloves with in the winter. So now they're down to about 5-6mm, which is as short as I think I can have them & still feel kind of normal LOL. Still playing a bit with the white balance on the new camera (the top is auto, the bottom 2 are manual & I think reality is somewhere between the 2), so please excuse that & also the post-acetone dryness in the middle pics:
I feel like I've been asking for patience for a long time, but just a little more please =) & I'll get caught up with nails, and books, and then maybe I can squeeze in a top 25 from last year. IIRC it took me until the end of March last year LOL - hopefully I can do better than that this year. But do know my absence here does not mean I've been neglecting my nails
Thanks for reading.
