Swatch / NotD
While digging through the contents of my SD card last month I found the first manicure I wore after getting married in May. I didn't even have my nails done on my wedding day because I had just caught the chicken pox. I was happy to have kept my nails at all after that ordeal! During April I had been so busy with wedding prep that spiraled into trying-to-keep-my-fiancé-alive that I hadn't worn any polish in quite some time. So to break my nails into being painted again I chose a lovely black polish...
And look how rounded my nails still were at this point! I think this fits the description of "squoval", haha. I keep them much more squared now and I'm loving it!
This polish was really nice to wear and easy to work with. The shimmer didn't make it brushstroke-y, but gave it a softened look. My last picture is with flash.
I think I've improved considerably within the last half year. I'm happy to share this little flashback, though. Not only because Black Tie is a really pretty polish but that this was a sort of monumental nail day. I was moving past the no-polish days of spring and things were settling into normality. It may seem like a small thing but sitting down with a polish brush in my hand felt so good right then. And I'd been married for 2 weeks! Now it's been almost 8 months, wow! =D
