Not Much Going On Here

My last post wasn't intended to be "Alas, pity poor me", but I fear it came out that way. I don't have anything on the go right now. I was off from work the last couple of days, and I'm working through the weekend. I went in for a couple of hours yesterday morning for training, and afterward went to get my nails done. This occasioned an impromptu shopping trip, as I went to the job in close-toed shoes, and forgot to bring a pair of flip-flops. There's an Old Navy just up the street from the job, and I ran in there to get some cheap flip-flops. Naturally, I managed to find a pair with wedge heels. I could have spent a lot of money in there, but I restrained myself. On the way out of the store, I did snag a purple Earth Day tee shirt.

The nail salon hadn't been open long when I went in. It was my first visit in three weeks, so they were happy to see me. Really happy, as I got the works: mani (and I needed a fill-in on my acrylic thumb), pedi and eyebrow wax. I had them do my toes with OPI Teal the Cows Come Home, which is kind of festive. You can see it in the photo above. It's like a party going on all the time.

Edit: I want to point out that the nails in the photo above are not mine. That photo is just the prettiest illustration of the color I could find. My fingernails are actually painted in OPI Bubble Bath, which is a really sheer pink. It's very subtle, which means I can wear it to work and no one hassles me.


  1. Nails are something that I constantly ignore. HRT has made mine very brittle, so I can't really grow them out the way I'd like, so I basically keep them short (which has the side benefit of making playing guitar easier). One of these days, I need to think about getting mine done. It's one thing that I've never done. Yours are really cute.

    I love getting eyebrow waxes, though.

  2. Darn, on livejournal I could have used my red nails gardening userpic. Grown them long since I was ten, amazing even with colour hardly anyone ever seems to notice!
