Don't look, my meat is showing

I started rock climbing recently ...

uuuh ... minus the heels.  What the hell was she thinking?  I mean yes there are sexy shirtless men there, but still ...

Landa and Angie have been talking about their short nubs on twitter lately.  I thought mine were short, until I started climbing.

So, I went to town.  Every time I saw a nail file ... I filed.  Eventually I hit my meat

See the meat sticking under my pointer.

The other hand did not fare much better.

My fingers tips are so sore.  I agree with Landa and Angie ... nubs can suck.

What's a girl to do? ... Quite whining ... tuck ... and go.

I tucked my sore skin under the nail and did a new mani!

The old mani was:
OPI - Do You Lilac It?
topped with Pure Ice - Oh Baby!

Tucked and ready for action with ...

China Glaze - Ruby Pumps

In the shade.

Reminds me of Color Club - Ruby Slippers

I think the China Glaze is slightly deeper red.

Do not adjust your screens ...

I went to a drag show recently because I heard they do splits.  I was not disappointed.  Can you imagine the meat tucking this move required?  If only she was wearing ruby pumps this post would come full circle.

Somebody's watching me

 Please tell me you also get stares like this.

Coco's thoughts, "This bish needs to feed me."

Not sure if she's looking at me or the polish, but damn, look at the sexy beast that is ...

Color Club - Love 'Em/Leave 'Em

 Even in the shade slight holo comes out.

Mannequin hands with pizzazz!

Tampons for your nails

Typically hemorrhaging of any kind is sopped up with a pad or a tampon.  Take wrestling for instance.  I remember on the high school wrestling team, when some dude would get a bloody nose, they would stick a tampon up his nose and call it a day.

Did you know your nails can hemorrhage?  Does that mean we need a maxi pad wrapped around each finger?  Luckily, no.  Although I imagine my hands would look exactly the way they do when I'm taking off glitter. ... see Foil Method post and video.

On occasion my nails hemorrhage and so do yours.  Have you ever noticed the following? ...

Do you see the black splinter? Click to make it bigger.  That is the start of a splinter hemorrhage.

There are medical reasons that cause such things to happened, one of serious concern is fungus, but I am ignoring those at the moment.  More typically, my hemorrhaging splinters come from over zealous buffing or knocking my nail bed into something.

It's faint and spread out at first, but gets more needle like as it grows out.

I usually don't worry too much about it and just let it grow out. Eventually, it will come to the nail free edge.

Growing out the coagulated blood...

 Let me show you the under carriage. lol

Creepy right.  You really can pick it off like a splinter.  Don't pry at it though.

Notice the hyponychium under the nail.  You can learn more about that in this post

In short, it is just skin that grows up the nail free edge.  This skin prevents some of us from taking down their nails to true nubbiness.  You can, however, manipulate it carefully.  Again, visit this post for more information. 

Next time you pull out a tampon think of your nails ... and how they don't need one.

Yea baby, yea!

I feel my mojo coming back ... let's have a giggle and learn about nails!

Retail Therapy

Down in the dumps?  What better therapy is there than buying crap you don't need?  I know money can't buy love or happiness ... wait! Or can it? ... only for a second ... umm so I bought hours worth ...
I have lemmings, but hardly ever quench them purposefully.

So when I just happen to find these, my heart did a back flip.

I love you Ross.  Not only do I get to dress for less, but you help me find rainbows.

.... and you have Color Club

... lots of Color Club

Color Club - Beyond the Mistletoe

In my depression, I took my nails down real short.  I actually really like them.

BACK UPS ... always necessary.

I love going to gently used Walmarts.

I find beauties like Heart Breaker :)

Pure Ice - Heart Breaker over China Glaze - Wagon Trail

I seriously love my nubs.

Blue and Green at the same time!

Go find a Walmart in the middle of nowhere.

You know me and sheer whites ....


I don't own much Orly ... that has been remedied.

Finally ... these are mine.

China Glaze to the rescue!! Lots of backups and new kids.

ICE ... Exactly like KleanColor.
Okay I am done ... for now. 

You guys are the best.  <3
