Trying something new



Really I'm not a girly girl,
My hair is short, devoid of curl,
My nails, oh goodness what a mess.
I don't do much for them, I confess. 
So today, thoroughly admonished
I indulged myself with a nice French polish.
There I was with lovely white tips,
But 
Five minutes later, two whacking great chips.

    1. Mary, I will not bother again. Still my family and friends are having a laugh.

  3. Ha, well that was quite expressive about yourself. Never really thought there would be girls like that. ;)

    1. Gabriella, never again. No point, I will just chip them digging in the garden, or sovelling snow or something

    1. Lol Brian, I know what you mean. I have a couple of them myself. I remember fondly a new jumper/sweater that I bought myself, which they very kindly tried to wash for me, sadly it was only a good fit for a baby afterward.

  7. Yes...not a long lasting feel good fix unfortunately. At least it does not hurt like a waxing:)

    1. I wouldn't know, thankfully. I think that's a step too far!

  8. Ha ha, this made me smile in sympathy. I keep mine short, am hopeless at being girly. Plus how do people TYPE with long daggers on their fingers?

    1. Sherry, I have no idea how people with long nails cope. How do they open things?

  9. I can relate to this - gave up on the nail polish years ago - not a girly-girl either - just me!

    1. Anna, I'm definitely giving up on the nail polish, just as soon as I've bought the remover.

  10. That's exactly what always happens to me!

    1. I didn't realise this was such a common problem, my friends do this all the time and their nails always look perfect.

  11. :D

    nice lively rhythm on the poem, a fun write.

  12. The rhythm was perfection and I laughed out loud at the end. Too bad manicures never really last--I seem to be a chip magnet when I bother with more than clear varnish.

    1. You have laugh, don't you. Clear varnish, definitely the way to go.

    1. Loredana, thanks for visiting. I had to laugh. Then I showed my daughter who is a regular and told her how much I had paid. She told me I was crazy.
