WARNING: This is a nail-free post.
So, as I mentioned last post, I had to cut all my nails down to almost nothing. A couple of them were badly damaged by poorly removed falsies, so I thought it was time to give them a rest. On the plus side, while my nails are short, it’s a lot easier to get stuff done around the house, because I’m not terrfied of breaking them!
I’ve been meaning to sort out my nail station for a while. Until now, I’ve been storing my polish tower in my bedroom, my new stock on my side table and have been doing all my manicures hunched over my coffee table. Definitely not optimal, so I decided to put it all in one place, in my living room.
Here’s what it looked like before:
I know, I have a LOT of clutter (yes, that is a fishtank wearing a top hat up there). Anyway, I moved everything out; the bookshelf is now on the other side of the room, and I moved a small desk and my polish tower into the space left behind. Here’s what it looks like now:
Neat, huh? It’s not totally finished, but it’s great having a little spot to do my nails properly. I’m picking up a kneeling stool from a friend this week, and I would like to get a couple of shelves and maybe some artwork for the back wall. I’ll have plenty of time to make it perfect while I wait for my nails to grow back, and I’m also giving up buying any manicure supplies for Lent. I need to go a bit easy on my wallet for a while anyway, and my stockpile of polishes to be swatched is already enormous!
Hope you’ve enjoyed this little glimpse into my sanctum. Here’s a bonus pic with one of my cats checking out the new perching spot. Have a great week!
