Sorry I've been a bit absent lately. I've been way stressed out with life and school and stuff. Also managing depression is tough, okay. Let's be real. Sometimes I have no motivation to do anything, even things I enjoy. And when I'm forcing myself to do things I don't like and it's making me feel physically sick, I have no energy left to do something fun.
Maybe I should talk a bit more about my personal life? I don't know if y'all want to hear about stuff like this, but I'm perfectly comfortable with sharing. Life is tough. We all know that. I personally think it helps just to know there are other people out there going through similar struggles too.
Okay, enough serious talk. I do actually have nail pictures today!
I've been wearing Kleancolor Holo Yellow since Friday and haven't taken it off yet. ...More on that later.
Kleancolor Holo Yellow
Holo Yellow is made up of fine yellow and holographic glitter suspended in a sheer yellow base. The only Kleancolors I own are three of their holos. The other two are Holo Chrome (which is blue, not chrome?) and Holo Orange.
To me, this is one of those "ugly pretty" polishes. It's kind of a weird murky gold-ish yellow as opposed to a plain primary yellow. It looks great in the sun, and I would have taken outside pics but the sun only came out once this weekend! It's weird to have so much rain and cold weather in one weekend...
The polish is mostly glitter, but it's pretty buildable and was opaque in two to three coats. Most nails only needed two coats. It was pretty hungry so I also gave most of my nails one or two coats of Gelous and a coat of Seche Vite. I'm not looking forward to removal since my nails are basically COVERED in glitter. Why do I always do this to myself? Why am I too lazy to buy glue?

Here's a special tidbit I have to share today: I broke a damn nail last week! (on my right hand)
My middle finger on my right hand gives me nothing but trouble. It has a bit of skin on the side of it that I can't stop picking at, and it's ALWAYS my one nail that starts peeling. It's inevitable and frustrating, and part of the reason why I keep my nails so short on my right hand.
But here's how this shit happened: My nail started peeling right in the middle of the tip, as it always does after a few manis, and so against my better judgement I decided to buff it out. I wanted to keep the nail from continuing to split off from itself, but I buffed a LOT out of it.
The next morning when I took a shower, a huge notch just broke right out of it, even with base coat on. I was so upset! Lol. I filed it down as much as I could on Friday before doing my nails with Holo Yellow. It seems to have grown out a bit, so as soon as I take this off I'm going to file it down a little bit more.
Ugh. Nail frustrations. I hope your nails are doing better than mine!
This cold weather is making my cuticles sad.
