I used to bite my nails – for many, many years. I remember my Mother telling me “Don’t bite your nails” repeatedly but I never listened ;) Even when I was in university I’d bite my nails. They’d be short, stubby, and quite soft actually.
The past few years, I’ve stopped biting them. I’m not sure how or why – I don’t remember making any conscious effort to not bite them. I guess I must have found another outlet to let out my stress.
Being a tech writer, a lot of people look at my hands – like when they stand next to your desk at work in my office (I’m spoiled, I have my own office at work and it’s the best thing for days when you want to be a bit anti-social) and tell me what to write. I get a bit nervous and uncomfortable if my hands look ugly. I have four different kinds of hand cream in my little box at work to help with the cold weather and also to have pretty hands. Hey these hands are the source of my income, I have to take care of them (this is also the reason why I’m terrified of snow sports – what if I fracture my hand?!?!).
Anyway, my point is I have come a long way from geeky-girl-who-bit-her-nails. I actually know how to use nail polish now :)
Here’s a Nail of the Day (NOTD) picture:
China Glaze Midnight Mission
I love China Glaze nail polish – but I only have two of them: Midnight Mission and Zombie Zest.
I’m trying to be a little bit more daring and confident in posting more pictures of looks and stuff, let’s see how that goes :)
