Blooming Blossoms

Today begins my time back in the hospital. This means two things for the blog:

  • Between now and mid-septemer I am more-or-less not allowed to wear nail polish, and my nails MUST be kept tiny
  • I will not be updating the blog daily

I have a back-log of almost 30 manis to post, intentionally. I figured if I painted my nails more frequently for the past few months, then I would be able to keep posting even while I can’t currently paint my nails! It has somewhat worked out. However, if I want to keep the blog updated until I can start doing nail art again (at least a little bit in September) then I won’t be able to post daily anymore! Ergo, I will try posting Monday-Wednesday-Friday from hereon out until I run out of blog posts. Sorry for the less-frequent updates, but I figured it was better than posting for a month straight and then not at all for two months!

Today’s nails were inspired by dutchnailss, because I painted these back at the beginning of spring. Even if there are no longer cherry blossoms on the trees, this mani is still pretty!

The base color here was a new polish, called There be Mermaids! by Powder Perfect. I have never used Powder Perfect before, and I think I should have started earlier! Mermaids took three thin coats for coverage, but dried quickly. The end result is slightly gritty, as there are small chunks of blackish glitter in with the holo pigment, i’m not sure why. Regardless, Mermaids is a beautiful blue-leaning teal with scattered holo and it is a REALLY pretty color. Its like a swimming pool! Oddly, I specifically love the brush (although I had to pull out two wayward bristles before I could use it). The brush is thin, bendy, and totally awesome! I don’t know that I’ve ever commented on a bottle’s brush before, so there we go.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed! I’ll be back on Wednesday with another post and maybe an update on my clinic time! I have forgotten EVERYTHING I learned in my 2 years of medical school!

    Very pretty, thank you for all your posts.

    • I’m glad you like it! And I’ll keep posting as long as I can…they’re just likely to be older bits of nail art
