pretty in gel

My fabulous student K (not husband K, or co-farmer K, or Meg's friend K, student K this time) offered to make my nails pretty for Amy's graduation/ school entrance ceremony.

I really didn't have any confidence in this idea.

Not because I doubt her abilities- I've seen her work and she rocks!

No, my problem was that the natural state of my nails is broken, split, very short and not very pretty at all. Functional would be the nicest thing you could say about them really...

But- thanks to K and the miracle of gel nails (a thick layer of gel like polish that has doubled the strength of my nails and made them pretty) and the artistry of my student K, I am looking all snazzy for formal wear season.

And so seasonally appropriate too with cherry blossoms and pink glitter.

Unfortunately with the revolting never-ending winter we're having this year my nails are the only cherry blossoms around.

The pre-cherry plums aren't even blooming yet.

Oh well, every time I look at my nails I get a shot of Spring, anyway. :)

Thanks K!

(And that's after a week of nail destroying life)
