So for my first ever Pink Wednesday, I thought of braving the unknown - nail art.
Background: as early as preschool I already knew that Art is my Waterloo. While my classmates got VG's (very good) or 10+star on their works of art, which were really just goddam splotches of color on Oslo paper, I received around freaking 8/10. Yes, as early as preschool I was getting B's on my artwork. For a 4-year-old, that was kinda traumatizing. Imagine the shame of getting 8 in Art. ART!
Fine, I got it. I suck at Art. That's why my whole life I shied away from everything that involves creating things with my hands. It was only very recently that I discovered I can make some kick-ass jewelry, and even so I
But I digress.
The whole point of that preschool anecdote is simply to warn you that I was, am and probably will always be mediocre with anything that involves painting. Also so that you'll feel sorry for me and not bash my miserable attempt at nail art.
Here are the photos:

I used Tony Moly MK01 as my base and The Face Shop PP 406 as the tip.
One last photo of the experiment and the horror is over.
While doing my first ever Pink Wednesday manicure, I realized one thing: I have only TWO bottles of pink nail polish.
Believe it or not. And I bought both of them only about two weeks ago. Imagine, had I not thought of buying nail polish that day, I would have nothing to wear for Pink Wednesday. And what makes this lack of pink nail polish even more shocking is the fact that pink is my favorite color.
And yet only two pink nail polishes. :(
Now I know what color to get the next time I buy polish.
PS: It's only Tuesday but I'm posting this already because I might not be able to do it tomorrow, what with the typhoon and the power interruptions.
