My Holiday Nails

Just getting home after a long 26 hours away.

The drive back was horrible for traffic and very tiring. Between the stress of the day, the heavy rain, the more than usual traffic, and the darkness descending on the day... add it all up, and I needed to stop to recharge. I did so in Tacoma, where my favorite nail salon is (about 45-60 minutes from my home). I was going to try to get into tomorrow anyway.

It had been nearly a month since my last time, so I was in need. I use a product called "Shellac" from Creative Nail Designs, so they last longer than a regular manicure with polish.

Jenny does such a great job, and we did something a bit more festive. Red with gold sparkle seems Christmas-y enough. Some suggested I get them done in Grinch-green. If I did not not have yellow tone to my skin, I just might have done that.

My other thought was to spell something out across all ten nails--

B-A-H-H-U-M-B-U-G-!

I would have dared to do it, but others do not seem to share my sense of humor.

Very nice nails and they are very Christmasy with the sparkle.

thank you, Mark. You know, I was nail-biter from the time I was about 3 years old, until October 2010.
I am pretty proud of my nails today. Those are mine. Not acrylic. emoticon :smile:

I am sorry about the heavy rain and the bumper to bumper traffic, but the good thing that came of it is your nails. They look great!

I am not much of a nail polish person.I did not have the habit of nail biting.I have to say your nails look very festive. How does the ankle feel?

Wow, your nail polishes that good. That will be an advance Christmas gift for yourself.

Thank you, luisga814 ... It is one thing that I like doing for myself.

Thank you, CalmGemini ...
Ankle is healing though still rather sore when I move in certain directions. Toes are still black'n'blue. Today was the first day I went without a cane.

Your nails look beautiful and very festive! Now you are really able to get ready for Christmas!

Thank you, Paulie .

I don't if I am "ready," but my nails look nice. emoticon :winking:

Very pretty. I like the bahhumbug idea.

CoralLevang wrote on December 22, 2015, 12:58 PM

Yay! I am glad someone does! LOL
I figured at least you or DWDavisRSL would be okay with that one.

wolfgirl569 wrote on December 22, 2015, 1:19 PM

I say do it, if it makes you happy. But then you wouldnt be bahhumbug anymore lol

CoralLevang wrote on December 22, 2015, 1:51 PM

Maybe next year. Early. LOL

DWDavisRSL wrote on December 22, 2015, 10:35 PM

I would have fully supported the Bah Humbug! design, CoralLevang . Were I one to decorate my nails, perhaps I could have spelled out I AM A GRINCH Then we'd have given the world something to talk about on both coasts, eh?

Your nails look very festive indeed. I was glad to read in a comment above that your ankle is doing better. My hip shot has been so effective that I've forgotten to take my cane with me when I left the house twice this week.

CoralLevang wrote on December 22, 2015, 11:11 PM

Oh, we should really do this. LOL

CoralLevang wrote on December 22, 2015, 11:12 PM

Thanks, DW. It's not up to par, but it's a far cry from a week or two ago!

Its really difficult to go out these days because of the holiday rush.
It has been a long time that I get my nails done...poor cheri!
Nice choice of color!

CoralLevang wrote on December 23, 2015, 4:59 AM

If I were there, we would get an okay from the doctor, and they you and I would go for a mani/pedi and a haircut! emoticon :winking:

cheri wrote on December 23, 2015, 5:14 AM

I would surely love that!

CoralLevang wrote on December 23, 2015, 5:25 AM

I have sent you email (very short) x2 at your gmail account. Did you receive either?
