As I found out last night. I really don't know why it happened, but I was reaching to open up a cupboard to get out some sugar and instead I rammed my finger into the opposite cupboard door I was trying to open. Not to mention is was my shortest nail. I have been trying to get this particular nail to grow out, and when I hit it I just thought I had hit skin. After further inspection I not only hit the skin, which cause my nail to separate from the skin, but it also cracked the damn thing too. So much for it growing out.
I tell you all of this to say I started to take off my nail polish from yesterday and when I felt the most horrid, painful feeling in my damaged nail. Once that acetone hit that "open wound" it was all over. I stopped taking off my nail polish and repainted the two nails that I had removed polish from. So I don't have much for you all today since I am not about to go through that kind of pain again. So what I did was I used a new color I bought from Walmart and layered it over my Misa - Bikini with a Martini mani from yesterday. I used A Perfect "10" in After Party. I think this nail polish cost me about a dollar or two. This is the first of this brand I have purchased, but I really like it. I especially love the bottle.
After Party is a clear pink base color and it has really fine glitter in it that goes from pink to yellow in the bottle. When I added it to the Misa, it really made the pink colors of the Misa come out. It looks really nice. I think my nails look like they have been frosted over.

With Flash and a much more accurate capture of the color.

Without Flash, this color is more pink in real life.

And here is a couple of close ups of my nail that I messed up, incase any were interested.

Can you see how that one side is lifted up off my skin?

Do any of you have any of the Perfect "10" nail polishes?
What do you think of them?
Have any of you rammed your finger so hard it seperated from the skin?

Ouch! Yep, I've done that before, and it is so very painful! Actually, the last two times I broke nails was in the kitchen...I tend to slam them in drawers/cupboard doors when I'm trying to do things too fast.

That's one nice thing about those eco-friendly polish removers...they don't hurt nearly as bad (if at all) when used on damaged skin/open wounds.

I like the overlay though - looks nice! I hope your nail/finger heals soon...

JAMIE - I never thought about those eco friendly removers not hurting as much! Next time you hurt your hand you will have to do a review and see if it stings or not :)
Thanks for the kind words :)

Oh no, auch auch auch! I'm so sorry, that sucks! That kind of thing usually doesn't happen to me because my claws are a bit longer and sort of flexible. They usually bend instead of breaking *knocks on wood*.

Brooke said...

PIXIE - OH no, hope you didn't jinx yourself!

I think if it would have been any nail BUT that one it would have been ok. When my nails do grow out that are pretty strong.

Ouch!! I don't want that happening to me, I'm not too good with pain. But your nails look so pretty!

Lucy said...

Have done that before. It always happens to the nail that your trying to grow out.

Brooke said...

XOANNIE - Thanks so much. You def. don't want this to happen to you. Luckily it's only bothered me for about day, today I don't even notice it---so far :)

LUCY - I know! OF all the nails, why my shorty mcshorty-iest?
