Bye Bye Robot Nails


A couple of weeks ago (like, 4) I got acrylic nails put on. I broke a nail and it was so disgusting and then I broke another one and I was like holy God, I can't have these monstrosities out in public - so I covered them up with fake nails. I was also going to Vegas and thought, "Hey! I can get a fun, sparkly Vegas color." While I was getting them put on I thought, "Oh my God, I have such nice nails and this is going to ruin them!" and other things like, "I wonder if that girl over there has had work done..."

While I was getting them done, while they were drying, when I tried to text message, when I tried to open the little compartment on my phone where I plug the charger in, when I typed on my keyboard, when I woke up the next day and they HURT - I regretted my decision.

But, I got used to them, kind of. And then they started growing longer and longer and longer - and they're supposed to filled every 2 weeks. Well, I approached four and decided I wasn't going to fill them, and I wasn't going pay to get them taken off. So I bought me some acetone and decided to do it myself.

I DID IT! The acetone stained my hands and made my hands feel disgusting - and it took about an hour total - but my fingers are free!

Here's what I did to celebrate freedom:

1. Texted, texted and texted again.
2. Scratched my head (I prefer it better without fake nails)
3. Typed this blog with ease
4. Cracked my knuckles (has nothing to do with the nails... but I did do it)
5. That's all.

It feels wonderful. My nails look disgusting... but I can scratch another person's human body without them being creeped out by my robot nails! What? Scratching people isn't normal??? Also - after this little experiment... I've decided that being from Everett does NOT mean you have to have fake nails, fake tans, and wear socks with Adidas sandals.

I like it. It's funny! But I prefer the acrylic nails. The plain french looks really classy and nice!
