End of Stays

O.P.I. of the masses

O.P.I. of the masses

Yesterday was the last day of my Staycation and I was back to work today. That meant that last night I had to get my nail varnish off, and trim my nails back a bit. I generally wear them as long as I can get away with in guy mode but they were way too long for that and desperately needed trimming. In fact, they were getting a little long for me anyway, since after a certain length they tend to alter the way I type which starts to give me joint ache in my hands which is never a good thing.

After trimming and shaping, I put on O.P.I. Matte Nail Envy (far left in the pic), which is a brilliant stealth varnish as it protects your nails but is almost completely invisible. I wear this pretty much all the time when I don’t wear actual nail varnish.

When the alarm went off this morning at 6.30am, it was a bit of a wrench to say the least. But I hauled myself out of bed and bundled myself into the shower, and things felt a little more bearable after that. Leaving the house in twilight was rather depressing, I have to say. And it’s not going to get any better – I’m sure it will be no time before I’m leaving the house in total darkness in the morning.

I got to work in good time, and most of my working day today has been spent getting back on my feet. Although my first task upon getting to my desk was to try get back on my arse, since some git had stolen my chair. 🙂

After that, it was several catch-up meetings, planning meetings, and the like. The day pretty much flew by. Tomorrow is when I really get my nose back to the grindstone.

    I really don’t like cutting my nails – nothing to do with aesthetics, I just dislike the physical sensation! That said, mine are increasingly talon-like, so…

      An alternative is to file them down and keep on top of it. I tend to clip and then tidy up with a file / emery board because it’s quicker. 🙂

    Circumstances dictate that nail varnish is a very occasional treat for me – strangely, when I can, choc brown is my favourite. I’m never sure how long to leave them in between so I usually keep them squared of a bit in a slightly pathetic interpretation of the ‘French’. Must try some matt to strengthen them up. Rgds, Sib

      Last time I painted my nails chocolate brown, I tried to eat my fingers. 😀
