I always thought my hands were too shaky to ever do my own nails, but then before the holidays I decided I was tired of spending money and time on manicures. This is the top of the mountain of First World Problems, I know. But, I’m a lifelong nail biter. Having my nails done stops the biting habit.


I decided to start with nail decals, because they’re adorable and low maintenance. I tried Jamberry, I got hooked. Then Espionage Cosmetics had an enormous Black Friday sale, I got more hooked. Now I’ve discovered all the glorious Etsy sellers who do very cool things with nail decals, and I’m basically permanently hooked.

Like this shop, Tattify. I love those city skylines. And the sharks! I can’t get enough of the sharks!!


Life is short, ridiculous nails are fun.
