Oh hi

Things in life that are easier than finding a job:
1. Achieving the perfect squoval.
2. Keeping a wonky nail at bay.
3. Properly using neeeeepers.

It hasn't been easy, but it finally happened; I am employed! Let's all moisturize our cuticles to celebrate.

I'll tell you what, rejection is tough. Thank goodness nail care and polish so easily amuse me and make me happy.

Today I am wearing ...
China Glaze - Dorothy Who?
China Glaze - Dorothy Who?
I wish China Glaze made a polish like this in every color.

  4. Congratulations. Will you be posting more regularly now? I miss your great advice. I do get back to your old writings, but I guess you must have found some new cuticle care moisturisers in the meantime.

  22. OMG! You are still alive! I was ready to look for a different version of you in a parallel universe!

    I have this polish but it doesn't look that good on my nails. :-\

    Congrats on the job!

    1. If and when you found me in that parallel universe, I had long toe nails instead of finger nails, would you still be my friend?

  23. So totally missing the Loods!!! I am back on formaldehyde-went 6 months using just jojoba oil hoping for a miracle but nope. I went back and reread your nail hardener etc series and am now doing Nail Tek Hydration Therapy IV, jojoba oil and Dermanail. I think my mistake before was going too hard core on the formaldehyde and not enough moisturizing and too much formaldehyde with no break. Am hoping this combo will do wonders. Anywho, have TOTALLY been missing you. It's not the same without you around.

    1. AWWW, thanks! :D

      Guess what?! I'm also back on DermaNail! My nails were peeling something fierce.... probably my lack of moisture. But they are back in tip top shape now. I hope you get the same benefit!

  25. Like Robin, I'm new to reading your blog. Discovered it just last week, as a matter of fact, and hoped you'd just taken a break after all the hard work for getting your doctorate. (Major congrats on that and the new job.) I'm looking forward to regular doses of nail nerdiness. ;-D

  26. Congrats!!! Glad to see you back. I love your blog because you explain the "whys and hows" of nail care. I have taken your advice and my nails are so strong and better for it. I hope you're back to regular posting. You have been missed, girl!!
