About The Nails

I think I have a tendency of being ironic or just saying ironic things. Irony is a fun thing to play with, as Jack Sparrow has shown many times. Anyhow, as much as I enjoy watching nail tutorials or scrolling through images of them, I do not practice this little art, so to speak. It can be a bit costly to delve into this colorful world--call me cheap--but I haven't come to a point of commitment to start.

I think the last time I painted my nails was in high school and mind you with poor technique. I knew nothing in particular about base and top coats, which help prevent the ugly discoloration of nails. Live and learn.
Haha, I was in this emo-ish faze so most often I would only paint my pinky nails black, or black with a red stripe. I'm not even sure what I was trying to say with it. I'm edgy? We'll go with that.

This is Claire's version of a manicure. I'm sure there are other small "proper" things to do, but you still get the big picture from her.

Nail polish aside I do enjoy taking care of my nails, making them look nice and whatnot. I'm sure there are many products out there specific for filing, buffing, moisturizing and so on, buuuut I think my nails turn out nicely with what little I do have and use.
I do have an all in one contraption for filing, buffing and polishing, cuticle oil and clippers which are quite inexpensive really.

Alright alright enough chit-chat. I have included one at home manicure tutorial from a newly favored Youtuber, ohhaiclaire. There are quite a few nail [polish] tutorials I've enjoyed, but I kept it reasonable at two (hard to choose) for you folks to enjoy and hopefully draw some inspiration... Plus, I feel painting your nails is a small way to say, "Hey spring, you are here and you are fresh." Does that make sense? I hope so. Hm, enjoy!

This seems fitting for spring I'd say. I really enjoy vintage goodies in general, so small bias here.

Another one from Bubz yes, call me lazy perhaps. Both relevant though and whatnot. Yes.
