*ouch*…

What a (long) weekend…haven’t posted up anything in the past couple of days, mostly due to this…


Happened on Sunday while I was cleaning out some containers. My grip slipped on one, I heard a ‘snap’ sound…lo and behold, the entire white portion of my nail had ripped almost clean off. Thankfully it hadn’t cut into the nail bed, but still stung as I suspect the edge was a bit raw after clipping off the broken bits.


This makes it pretty difficult to type on the keyboard *ouch* but as long as I don’t put too much pressure on it it’s not too bad. Regular posting will be back up tomorrow, and there are some surprises in store for readers coming up! :) Stay tuned!

i totally understand you're "ouch feeling"
i broke 2 nails just before my trip!

i apply strengthener every single weak but i guess since i also change my nail colour almost every week, its still brittle :(
