Wham, Bam, Thank You Ma’am

On Sunday evening, I did something that is pretty much the end-all for nail polish wearers – I smashed my thumb in my door, and yep – totally going to lose the nail. It’s all black and blue and hideous looking! And just before the holiday season no less…waaaaaaaaa! :'( I had so many plans for my nails this season, with my ever-growing polish stash. I had it all planned out – MAC Ming Blue, Zoya Valerie, then OPI YMomC with holo glitter topcoat to ease into the season, followed by ChG Peace on Earth getting closer to Christmas. ChG Ruby Pumps worn the night we go to see this years’ holiday show ‘The Wizard of Oz’ at the Neptune (so perfect!) and OPI Bring on the Bling thrown in for any holiday parties. Then of course, ChG Party Hearty on Christmas Eve/Day, and OPI Holiday Glow to wrap up the month. [Side note: If reading that makes me seem a) entirely crazy, and/or b) like I have nothing to do with my time, well…I promise it’s just mostly a) lol] In any case, it’s going to be interesting without a thumbnail. Total bummer. Any suggestions on how to handle my dilemma??

On a different note – the polishes mentioned are all absolutely FANTASTIC. I have to learn how to take swatch photos that look true to color, but in the meantime – yow! Valerie in particular has really won my heart. It’s so fabulous while still remaining feminine, which I can’t really say for the others (save Ruby Pumps). I highly recommend all of them!!

    Oh, I am so sorry to hear this! It sounds painful. I had an incident with my big toe nail one summer. It turned blue and was due to the congealed blood underneath the nail, and an athletic type person said that he had experienced it multiple times and surely the nail was going to fall off. It did feel kind of loose because it was attached to the congealed blood instead of the nail bed flesh, but it wasn’t completely detached. This was in the middle of summer so I was pretty bummed, but I was very very careful with it and nurtured the nail back to health. (Just by making sure it was never disturbed and trimming it very carefully when it grew.) It took months but I could see the fresh nail starting to emerge and I haven’t had a problem with it since. I hope it works out for you!!

      OK, that makes me feel a bit better! I also read online that your nail doesn’t fall off until your new one is almost entirely grown in…so at least I won’t look totally gross and scary with no thumbnail :P
