March Nail Art Challenge: Dotticure & Some Important News

Sunday, March 2, 2014

Hi!

Oops... another week seems to have gone by and I haven't posted. More explanation will come at the end of this post :) But let's get to the nails! 

I did these intending to take on my first nail art challenge: @californails' Totally Doable I Have a Life March Nail Art Challenge. It's a great first challenge because you only have to post 2-3 times per week! (except I won't actually be able to complete it for reasons outlined later in the post...) 
The theme  for March 1st was dotticure. The weather has suddenly gotten warmer around here, so I went for a summery feel!




My camera just wouldn't focus on these... I was in macro mode and everything, I don't know why it wouldn't focus! 

Anyways. Now time for some news. 

First, I haven't been able to post as much because I'm on my high school's soccer team. It's really fun, but practice/games eat up a lot of my spare time :( 

Next, my parents have decided to ban me from painting my nails for the rest of March. I missed the bus three times this year, and they had to drive me to school, which means no more nail polish for the month of March. It sounds kind of strict when I type it out, I guess my parents are pretty strict. They do have to put up with me living in their house though, haha. 

BUT I do want to keep my blog active!! I'll be pulling some things out of my unpublished folder, but I don't have enough stuff to last me posting twice a week throughout March. 
Which means I need y'all's help... will any of you guys be willing to do a guest post for me? If you're interested, please send me an email at thenailsnail[at]gmail.com.  Anything nail related is fine -- swatches, tutorials, nail art, nail care routines, life of a nail art blogger, etc.!
I'd be glad to do a guest post for you once I get my polish back!

Maybe my nails will like the break, they're in need of some TLC right now!

Thanks for reading!

    I totally get where your coming from, I've been in a similar situation and business is a constant thing. I'd love to help you, the chance to help you is really nice, but business has become me, but I really hope I can find time to help you out :)

  5. First time on your blog and I just had to comment... I'm so impressed! You're so young and your nail art is adorable. Sorry about the ban for March, but parents know best. :) And you need to get to school on time - education is priority #1!!! (Can you tell I'm a teacher??)

    1. Thank you so much! I do agree -- although I wouldn't have imposed the ban by myself, I think a little time off will help the health of my nails as well as academic/extracurricular performance :P Haha, definitely could've guessed that!
