When left alone...

Since a pretty young age I have always had my nails painted. There are pictures of me as a 3 year old with pink painted nails. I can't remember a time that I went with the "natural" nails look. The ladies in my life my mom and my gram always have long pretty painted nails.

My grams are gorgeous. She is 80 years old and they are long and thick. When I was in highschool I kept them on the longer side. A girl in my art class loved to paint them and she would paint little pictures on them. I did that for years.
Nowadays I tend to keep them dark. I have at least 10 bottles of dark reds and browns that only I know the difference between. NO this one has red shimmer and this one is more BLUE. A quirky thing I started doing in college when everyone else started going dark was to paint one a different color. Just the one. Usually my ring finger. This morning I was inspired to paint some flowers on them. I don't have all the tiny brushes I used to so I just used the big one in the bottle. Not bad for not having done intricate designs for 7 plus years?

This photo was taken before I put the top coat on.

pretty! My Gramy always had her nails done up. Usually with a pretty pearl colour. I used to love them as a kid and always thought they were very feminine.
