Hello everybody and welcome to day 3 of Blogmas!
I think I never mentioned it before, but I have been stalking the Christmas manicure tag on Tumblr for years. Actually, it has been so much time that now it looks like FOREVER.
In the past I made too many attempts of giving my hands a festive look, just to get disappointed about my
poor inexistent nail art skills. This year, however I did my very best and took it really seriously... And before you start singing praises... I FAILED AGAIN. I have a very embarrassing picture to prove it, but with your permission that one is going to remain in the bottom of the "shame photographic file" where I keep all the documented mistakes I commit far too frequently. THANKYOUVERYMUCH.
Anyway, once I gave up I simply moved to the closest nail salon and ask them to do it for me, as a proper unskilled adult and all, and I am happy to say this is what I got, picture included! They thought the work was good enough to take a picture of it and post it on their facebook/twitter/instagram/whatever, so here I am, with a professional picture of my pretty and happy nails. So I learnt the lesson: when you need something well done, make other people do it for you.
