Well, I think my February Foto challenge is only fun for me. I don't think it is that exciting for anyone reading my blog. I don't know why I care if people read because in theory this is supposed to be something for me, but I guess I still want to know people are reading. Is that bad of me? I sometimes wonder how some blogs get so many people reading. And some that have a million followers don't write about anything so specific. hmmmm. Blog land is a very interesting place. Oh well, I know there are a few of you actually reading out there. :)
Anyway, I haven't written about anything in real life for awhile. My oral surgery went well and I'm still in a little pain at night, but nothing that the good pain meds don't fix. I am still careful about eating on one side of my mouth and brushing my teeth doesn't feel as satisfying because I'm not brushing as hard as usual. BUT, overall I feel really good now. That tooth was not right and it was affecting me a lot.
Before going back to work and the dental stuff, I had a week off from work so I spent a lot of it reading magazines that had been piling up. And I've mentioned before that magazine reading is serious business for me. I clip things out and put them in my special binder of ideas and inspiration. I found something cool in one that I tried out--how to whiten your nails after you wear a lot of dark polish.
I figured I'd take some pictures as I did the process.
Combine in a bowl (I got a clear bowl because it seemed more official for this process):
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 lemon juice
Doesn't it look like an egg mixture? It's really olive oil and lemon juice, I promise.
Soak your nails for about 10 minutes (or really any amount of time you want). I watched TV whilst soaking my nails.
I buffed and polished my nails after the soaking was complete. Look how clean they look! haha...I have no idea if it worked or not, but I feel like they looked really nice and clean. They felt great after. The olive oil softens cuticles.
And for good measure, this is after I painted them. I used Angora Cardi by Essie.
Okay, I should get back to work this afternoon. I need to think of more interesting thing to blog about after the February challenge is over.
Keep it real!
