grit for glitters

I hadn't done my nails for the longest time ever. Never had manicure even actually.

So was pretty pleased that Ako who was going through nailist training asked if I'd like to be her nail model. Of course I'd like to. Since she was just starting out, there weren't many colours to choose from. There were the usual neutrals and pastels, but I told her to just be creative since it's for her practice.

Her toe nails had some marine theme on it, though was done by someone else, and had embellishments that made it really exotic. The one that she did for me is a similar but lighter version with more glitter. She was worried how I'd be able to go through work in such fancy nails, but I told her not to worry. In case anyone doesn't realise already, it is after all a traditional Japanese company.

To say that the past few weeks have been harrowing would be a gross understatement. It's amazing how someone you thought was so close to you could just turn around and rear her ugly head. So, having pretty nails was the least of my worries.

A grrl's gotta need some glitter to get through the gritty life.
