Am I a girly girl? Why yes I am, thanks for asking.
I remember as a young girl liking all the pretty things. I was not immune to Cinderella and loved her gowns and hair and pretty shoes.
Now I know it does not make me politically correct nowadays, but being almost 50 years old, I figure that has earned me a pass of having to be always the strong and reasonable one.
Nails have been no different for me. I loved having long nails. The only problem with that was that I have been fighting all my life with the nervous habit of biting them so even when I try to let them grow, the nails are brittle and weak and I have little success.
I have gone through phases of stick-ons and glue-ons and even had started going to the nail salon for acrylic nails.
However in the last little bit I have discovered gel nails. While it’s nice to have someone do them for you. At $50 a pop it can start to add up and it looked simple enough.
So I finally took the plunge and bought some forms and the gel and decided to try my hand at it.
The surprise here was that it was just as easy as they showed it on the ads I had been seeing on Instagram. Put into the forms, apply to clean and prepped nail bed and tada….Nailutopia.
The best part is that I wanted them short and much thinner than what the beauty shop gives you and I was able to do and get them the way I wanted.
I decided to video my first attempt at this and although I forgot some of the time to stay in frame, you can honestly see just how easy it all was to do.
It’s funny how you will overspend on the stupid stuff.
10 thousand items from the Dollar Store, but you seldom invest in the stuff that could actually help you.
Such was the case with us. For years now, every time summer comes around, my husband says.
“I should buy a bike. I use to love biking as a kid.”
But having been $60,000 in debt kinda stops you sometimes from the bigger ticket items thinking that somehow, the death through a thousand cuts (buying a whole bunch of unneeded cheap crap) would somehow make it okay.
Hubby knew there was something wrong when the garbage kept getting strewn around the front yard…. So we baited the live trap and found the cutest thief. Second one this year. No worries, he got relocated quite easily.
I come to ask a favor of you. Early this morning YouTube announced that they would demonetizing any channel that does not have 1000 subs or 4000 views yearly…now I have over 4000 views however I am only at 833 subscribers. I still need 167 subs to make it that they don’t take the very little bit of ad cash I make in my channel. I made less than $100 in the last two years…but I was growing) I have until Feb 20th (one day before my birthday) to get to 1000 so they don’t take away what I have worked so hard for in the last two years.
If you want to support me, the only thing you need is an email address to be able to subscribe to my channel “A Decade To Freedom” and then subscribe to get me to that 1000 sub mark. There is nothing to buy and although it would be great if you could watch…at this point I just want to keep what I’ve worked so hard for.
Thanks for taking the time for reading this and you have my gratitude if you do decide to help us.
