Day 342: Shellac Toes


Like I said I got “my nails did” the other day. The shellac is supposed to last a super long time without chipping. They guarantee it for 14 days after which your toenails are growing out, but it still wont chip.

I felt a little silly knowing I will headed overseas on a big hike, yet this will be a true test of how it withstands lots of rough treatment.
The lady doing our nails said most people get it before going to the beach so their toes look great the whole time.


I will make sure to take a picture and date it if I get any chips in the polish. For anyone not salon savvy, like me, the light wasn’t hot or even as I expected and the polish feels a bit thicker than regular polish.

Day Ten: Feet

Look at those feet!

Two feet with ten little toes on the tenth day of my project in September.
I took this from my cell phone camera. I am still discovering all the fascinating ways I can take pictures with my phone and different settings I can give it. After taking this photo I found out I can snap a shot with the Groucho mask on the subject’s face. Beware, friends, you will be made into a bad photo.

Painting my toenails and fingernails is one of the easiest things I can rebel and do without causing any harm to myself or others. I use the word rebel because at my NPS job I can’t have crazy colored fingernails. I have insanely painted toes underneath those uniformly polished boots.
