I got my nails done today which is not normally something I do. Mainly because I play guitar a lot so it’s a bit of a waste of money as the guitar strings chip away at both the nail and the varnish, but also because, for all intents and purposes, I really can’t be bothered….
When I was younger, I used to change my nail colour almost every day to match whatever outfit I had planned for the following day. It was my way of rebelling against the formality of the work wear I had to keep to; nothing major, just smart trousers and a jumper, but I still didn’t like it. So if I was wearing a pink top, my nails would be pink and if I was wearing a blue jumper, my nails would be blue etc.
Then I went through a phase where I was all about the French manicure and I still love that now, but I think you need nails of a certain length to do it justice.
Today, I wanted to go for a bright colour to cheer up my weather and guitar battered hands so I chose this light, cherry red; it looks a bit pinker in the picture than it is. What do you think?
