Some PWIs and some reflections on blogging

It’s been a few weeks since I posted. I’ve been painting my nails; in fact, I think they are literally the longest they have ever been, right at the moment. (Usually they grow until one breaks, and I hack them all off. I don’t know why nothing has broken yet. Random chance, perhaps.) But although I have had PWIs to do, I haven’t had anything else to talk about, and I find that just posting pictures of swatches is not really as rewarding as blogging when I feel like I have something to talk about.

It’s not like nothing has been happening. Friends have visited for the first time since very early 2020, work always has something going on, life continues on. It’s just not the sort of thing I’ve been in the habit of talking about on this here blog, or perhaps the spark that makes it fun to write (and, one hopes, to read) has been missing.

I don’t really know, nor do I know what exactly I plan to do about it. Blogging is definitely good for me when I’m in the groove for it. Maybe I’ll just… post about nail polish for a while and see how I feel. Here, have a dump-o-polishes.

Leesha’s Lacquer, Huddled by the Heater. A pretty pinkish-copper with lots of bright sparks.
Pahlish, Heroes in a Half Shell. A lovely spring green with lots of gold shimmer.
OPI, Sweet Heart. A mellow, blush-y almost-nude pink. Much prettier in person.
Noodles Nail Polish, Lend Me Some Sugar. Basically a tan crelly with gold flakes. In reality it looks speckled rather than gold-flecked, which is okay but not what I was after. Very thick formula and no fun to take off.
MTK Design, All the Hype!. I didn’t end up getting a pic of this one that wasn’t just ugly. It’s a very sheer thermal jelly that goes back and forth between a bright (clear) peach and a rather dingy (clear) lavender-brown. Pretty in the bottle but on the nail, I was not enamored.

More to come, probably, perhaps. It depends apparently, in part, on the muse.
