On my long, wonky fingers is an OPI nail lacquer called 'Manicurist of Seville' thanks to a trip to Oz Nails and Beauty Supply with SJC. I usually save bold polishes for my toe nails. As a reformed nail-biter, it's probably got to do with not wanting to draw attention to my nails that were bitten to the quick and red raw for too many years. That may be an exaggeration, but they were far from pretty. Then there is the wonky factor. The top of my middle left finger bends to the left and my right one bends to the right. They're a little crazy but on the same token, they provide a sense of wonder and pride because my nana's hands and my dad's hands have/had the same wayward tendancy. So I'm throwing caution to the wind and embracing colour and the marvel of gentics. Beware of the wicked witch in the west. She's the one with her nails curled into fists or pushed deep into her pockets to hide the evidence.
A note about Oz Nails and Beauty Supply: It's a mini-mart of sorts selling everything from emery boards to professional spa pedicure chairs. Located in an industrial strip of Ballarat Road, Braybrook, Victoria, you are unlikely to stumble upon it unwittingly. However, if you are up for a little adventure, they sell OPI nail lacquers for $11 (pretty much half price for professional polish used in many nail salons).
