I have been away from my little blog for a while. I had a bad sinus infection, so I am on these really strong antibiotics that make me really tired, and I swear they also make me high! Seriously, I feel buzzed all the time. If I close my eyes, the room spins! It's weird. I also have been working the closing shift for the past week, so between that and the antibiotics I pretty much have been waking up, going to work, coming home and going straight back to bed. But I did manage to stay awake long enough to do a new mani, using my Zoya Mod Mattes.
But first, a confession: I hate matte polish. It isn't a visual thing, it's a touch issue. I hate the way it feels on my nail when I touch it. The feel of it is the tactile equivalent of fingernails on a chalkboard to me. I think it looks cool, but I can't stand to have it on my nails. If I like a matte color, I will still buy it, but I always put shiny top coat on it. I loved all three of the Mod Mattes colors, but I love them even more with a couple of coats of Seche Vite! So, on to the mani:
I mostly took pics of my right hand, because I have a gross scrape on my left ring finger, right at the cuticle, from opening a box at work. See:
Eww. I took these pictures last night. It looks even worse today, now that it has scabbed up. No matter how much vitamin E oil I put on them, it is just impossible to keep decent looking hands at a home improvement store. Sigh.
Also, I have six followers all of a sudden! Wow! Hi! I am working on a little giveaway thing, and I should have more details about it in a short while. I think it will be fun.
