weekend distraction: striping



[via the nailasaurus]

This is the skill level to which I aspire re: nails, which I have been entirely overlooking as a realm of decoration and atmospheric contribution.

After about 72 hours of research & development [i.e. browsing the archives of nail blogs – there is a lot to know about nail and cuticle care alone, and there are so many finishes available], I conclude that it is going to take a while but is within my power, provided the proper ingredients.

Which I will soon have.
