First Manicure of 2015, Inspired by Amy Pond

Hello, all.

Brought the flu back with me from down south. Since I don't feel like doing much else, I've been watching Dr. Who episodes, mainly the ones with Amy and Rory. You know how Amy always had her nails manicured? We all found ourselves fascinated with the colors she wore. Well, I saw a color similar to this one and decided to cheer myself up by wearing it, too.

The episode was "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" from season 701 and the color Amy wore was a sky blue that almost matched the blue in her blue and white striped shirt. The version I picked out is from Klean Color. This is Sea Ice.

Sea Ice is a cream that only required 2 coats for full opacity. Dried fairly quickly to a shiny finish. I did use top coat. Only one coat of base coat so we'll see if this is one of those blues that stains. The color is just slightly darker in real life. 

And yes, I'm back to nubbins. I've been neglecting my nail oiling so I had peelies galore once I took off the last manicure. In addition, several nails had become cracked but not broken so I filed everything down beyond the damaged parts. Actually, it's easier for me to shape my nails the way I want them when they are this short. 

That's all for now. Hoping to feel better soon. Thanks for reading and stay tuned.
