Why am I obsessed with my fingernails lately? Maybe it's because I am too cheap to make regular visits to the nail salon or maybe it's because I can finally browse Pinterest again or maybe it's because I just like nail polish. Yesterday, I made a list of nail polishes I want for Christmas. The list was ridiculous. NAIL POLISH.
I remember being in 11th grade and getting nail polish for Christmas. At that point in my life, I was not a fan of nail polish and I took it SO personally that my parents got me a Christmas present (it was a set of like... 10 polishes) that did not reflect who I was as a person. I was so offended! I felt like my parents didn't know me. They also got me a dumbell set and scale that year, which I was also offended by, even though I requested them!!
I spent that whole Christmas day crying. It was ridiculous. Parents, I'm sorry!!!! I was such a bratty kid. I think I still have my bratty moments, but I'm constantly working on my attitude. The nail polish Christmas was one I'll never forget though I desperately wish I could!
So, back to this Christmas. It's so hard for me not to get all wrapped up in Christmas gifts. Gifts are one of my main "love languages" and so giving and receiving gifts is like.... one of my favorite things on earth. So, this week I'm going to try to lay off the Pinterest wish lists and focus more on real life.... and more on learning how to do my own manicures. ;)
