Oh don't get too excited. I did not go anywhere. The post today is about nail polish, nail art and nail design. So I did not go to Paris, instead I just did a French manicure for the month of January. By the time I finished the polishing, I realized that it would have been a great
new year's eve party nail design. Because we are still in the winter months, probably I don't need to get my toes polished. For me, if I am doing my nails then the toes has to be done as well. In other words I do the whole works aka mani pedi. Honestly I don't even remember when was the last time I had been to a nail salon. As you know, being a diabetic, I have to be careful with my hands and feet, more so the feet. Well, the last time I was at a salon getting a pedicure, the nail technician aka nail person, nipped the side of my middle toe. She was trimming the cuticle and she went a bit too far. The bleeding did not stop for a while and she was getting worried. Finally it did and I told her to just stop and just to the polish with no design and I left. Sorry NO TIP. It took at least a couple of months for the wound to heal. Since then I have been doing my own spa for fingers and toes. And I have to say that I do a pretty good job. Not only does it saves money, it also protects me from infection, cuts, etc. Here's some of the nail designs I have done lately and some are my favorites. I thought it would be nice to have some sort of names for each.
