This is NOT an April fools joke!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My day started out like this...
Sally Hansen Honeydew

Then I had a flat tire. Where I live we have very narrow winding mountain roads, so when you have a flat tire you do not wait for AAA or call someone to come change your tire. Chances are some idiot will come speeding around a turn and crash into you. So I changed my tire, I'm actually quite skilled at it. Long nails and car repairs do not go well together...at all! I managed to get covered in mud (actually red clay) ruining my favorite jeans and broke 6 nails. Karma what did I do wrong?

So after whining the majority of the day and Chris threatening to cover my hands in manuer and miracle grow, I decided to make the most of a sad situation. I never could do a full nail konad until now.

I always wanted to do a full on sluty fishnet full nail konad.
Base color is OPI Met on the internet (which we did). Konad image plate m57 stamped using Wet n wild black creme. I'm still having trouble with coverage due to the strong curve of my nails but I'm satisfied with this for now. It cheered me up a little and Chris says it's sexy as hell.

My hands gained 10 lbs.

See the pretty pink shimmer.

Missed a spot

I guess you all get to watch and see how fast my nails really grow.
Just a hint on how long it's been since my nails were this short, Chris had never seen my nails this short.
I think probably 10 years or more.
I hope April fools day didn't get the best of any of you!

    You did a beautiful job with your fishnet manicure!

    I am so glad you are safe. I'm sorry about your tire, but it is good under such road conditions you were able to handle the repair. I am going to take a moment of silence for your nails.

    We are all here for you and we will watch your nails grow out together. xoxo!

    Think of it this way, now that your nails are half as long, your nail polish bottles will last twice as long =)

    I LOL'd at 'slutty fishnet' XD I think your nails look pretty at this length!

    ReplyDelete
  19. In the end, what are nails when you need to go somewhere and do things? I think this story proves that even well manicured women can change a tire....even if it might mean you'll end up with shorter nails.

    I think your new, shorter nails, look amazing! Nice konad

    ReplyDelete
  20. Your nails look awesome at any length :) I completely relate to you in regards to having fast-growing nails.I have to keep mine short for work and if I don't trim them once a week,they'll just keep growing! Also,kudos on changing your own tire.That's badass. 8-)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh, and that konad is HOT!

    glad to see you got to keep some length! they are shorter, but still lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh crap! Damnit, now all my efforts to grow my nails like yours have hone out the window a bit! :(
    I suppose in about a week they'll be over a footlong... Now we have a chance to see how fast they grow I guess? An experiment of sorts?
    That konad is HOOOOTTTT... Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm so sorry you broke your nails. Ten years is an amazingly long time to have that nail length. I broke two last night. Just when my nails were looking good. I hope your nails grow longer fast. Must be weird to do things without having all that length. I just thank God that you were able to safely change your tire. :'(

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'm sorry your nails broke, must be sad for you, but i think they look beautiful as they are. :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh my, breaking 6 nails is no fun. Ten years already with the long nails? Wow! Anyway, I like the new look too. It takes some getting used to - Evil Angel with shorter nails?! - but it's looks very nice. Sexy mani there! :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. You poor thing! And Chris is right, they're damn sexy!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm so sorry... and... that is HILARIOUS that your BROKEN nails are longer than my longest nails! I feel so inadequate right now! hahahahahaha! :-P

  46. Mom your nails were that short when you accidentally scratched the little kid when you were working at 21st century.

    ReplyDelete
  47. HOLY SH**! I wasn't expecting them to be this short!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Freaky isn't it? >:o

  54. It's just odd to have things touch my fingertips, they are very sensitive.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Oh I wish they grew that fast, it will be a couple of months.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  63. Aww I'm sorry for you, I know it's a bit hard getting used to a new length! I even have that issue when I take of 2millimetres, lol. However, I think this length is really really pretty on you TOO. And they're nowhere nubbins :* And you go girl, changing your own tire. You rock!!

    ReplyDelete
