Shit bitch mother fucker

yea so I broke a nail.

UGH.  This weekend we had to put in a wooden floor in our dumb ass condo for the new tenant.  I thought I avoided the whole nail breaking scenario by skipping participation in the carpet removal step.  WRONG!

I wore Color Clubs Wild at Heart ... one of my favorites!

Mmmmm purple holo :D







Granted my nails were getting pretty long, so a slight trim would have been a smart idea.

However, as always, taking down length hurts ... my ego.

 










But you know what hurts more? Ripping a nail off past the quick.  F-ing OUCH. Okay so this shit really hurt.  Do you see how low that skank ripped off.  As always I went into panic mode and shortened the rest before I took this picture.

So what the hell was I doing? I was removing a nail from cement using a crow bar.

Oh and the color on my pinky doesn't match the rest.  That's another story for another time.



I guess you'll be seeing a lot of swatches from the left hand from now on. 

Isn't this iphone pic really good quality?













So I did end up shortening only the left hand a bit. The lengths of the nails are not all even, but I just couldn't take them down any further.

2-3 weeks couldn't pass fast enough, but that ring finger does look kinda cute.

  1. Oh Loodie!! :( That really sucks, but at least you still have your right hand nails that look AMAZING!! And you have gorgeous nail beds, so the short look on the left hand still looks fantastic :) But I know whatcha mean about how much breaks suck :( I currently have a HORRIBLE break I can't even stand to look at.

  2. Love the title! heh I feel your pain (literally and figuratively), my pinky just broke like that and hurt like a bitch! At the very least, you can grow your nails that long, mine always start breaking and chipping way before that point.

  3. Poor Loodie. *pats your head* It's not all about size/length. You have more than enough to satisfy me! LOL Love Wild At Heart.

  4. I'm just here to say that you make the most perfect titles. That's all.

    I always have this problem with my thumbnails. Start to see some free edge - BOOM. Callously ripped from it's life source and left to fend for itself. Really annoys me.

  7. OUCH. Although the title had me rollingg. I say the same thing whenever something similar happens.

  8. Owwwwww, I wince just thinking about it. Your nails still look beautiful though! My nails are never all the same length because I'm breaking them ALL the damn time.

  9. Your nails are still as gorgeous as ever! Don't worry, it will grow. Nails and hair are, when you get right down to it, toys. What matters is that you didn't get hurt! Except the injury to your ego. I know that does hurt. I took all of my nails down recently, and man, it still hurts! But I had to do it.

  10. Literally LOL'd at your post/title. That nail is a total skank. Sorry for your loss!! I broke one of mine this weekend, but they were nowhere near as long and wonderous as yours were! :(

  11. Oh no! Breaking a nail that far down really does hurt a lot.

    P.S. Love the title! ;)

  12. Ahhhhh, it really had to hurt. Brrr, when I see your picture I can feel the pain:-( Hope your nail will grow soon.

    Can I have a question, or a request? I am wondering if wearing a nail polish is bad for nails. My boyfriend says that I should not polish them so often, but I have opposite opinion. I have peeling nails and when I don´t polish them, they are getting bad. So I prefer to have them polished, because then they are strenghtened and I think they grow better. What do you think? And do you think it is really possible to cure peeling nails? I have really nice, thick, curly hair, but my nails - a catastrophe. Thank you very much. Wish you nice evening.

  22. The title made me laugh, as everyone perfectly understands that exactly what we feel when a nail breaks :/
    Your shorties are gorgeous though!

  23. I know how you feel. I slammed my thumb in a metal door and my thumb nail split 97% across resulting in massive bleeding and pain. It's been almost a month and it's only now just starting to grow back. Fingers crossed that your other 9 nails stay as perfect as they are. :)

  30. OMG, hurts just to look at that!
    Right there with you, sadly. Broke the index and middle finger nails on my left hand while doing some exciting post flood cleanup in my basement. Yes! Metro Detroit was under water last week. So much fun. Home office is a total loss. Oh well. I will join you in cursing. Fucking hell!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Gah!!! I totally feel your pain, when that happens it is a total bitch. It HURTS like a bitch, and it's a bitch when your nails are shortened without your consent/desire.

    Ok, enough with the 'bitchin' lol...otherwise, that Color Club shade is freakin' gorgeous!!! Love love love.

    ReplyDelete
  32. @Sinead - No way you too!!! damn and the office is a gonner. F U flood! Cursing always makes my day brighter so thank you ;)
