Radio Silence


 I just wanted to take a quick second to apologize for my lack of posting in these past few weeks. I've been having the most awful luck with my nails. It has been break nation up in here lately. I honestly can't really say why as I've not really changed anything in my nail care routine. The moment they start looking remotely decent, one goes and breaks.
 As a result of the constant breakage I have been so down and just "not feeling it". I've been aggravated and cranky and just plain uninspired. Basically, I am in a FUNK that has been quite challenging to kick. My nails have been "naked" (nothing but a base coat), for weeks and the saddest part is that not even looking at my mountain of polish inspires me at the moment. I just get... well... really sad... It makes me sad to look at my polish and feel nothing. But, it goes deeper than polish... I don't want to get into it, but basically my "demons" have spilled over into my blogging. I'm trying really hard to separate those two... I feel bad because I don't feel like polishing, which then makes me feel bad because I am so far behind which then makes me feel useless, pointless.... I feel like I need to be honest. It is not all sunshine and rainbows as much as I'd like to believe that some times.

  I miss interacting with you guys, but for now I need to focus on myself. I need to get my head straight. I hope to feel well again soon so I can get back to posting and creating.

  2. Keep your head up, and remember even short nails look great when painted with a cute mani. Samantha at Nailasaurus does some really fantastic short nail designs should you need inspiration. Alice from One Nail To Rule Them All does too. Sometimes though, it's just fun to simply sit and watch nail art tutorials on you tube and not paint anything. With the onset of fall weather my long strong nails and healthy cuticles have decided to become brittle, dry, and break like crazy. No amount of cuticle oil and moisturizer seems to be helping. I am going to hold Mother Nature and Jack Frost responsible. I am doing my part with the lotions, creams, and oils. Take your time with this and write when you feel like it and about whatever moves you. This is YOUR blog. I hope all goes well with you and your get your groove back soon! Until then, smile! and ... (((BIG HUGS))))

  3. Dear Christina, good luck with everything. Don't feel bad, you're not letting anyone down. Your readers support you and we will still be here when you want to start posting again! Like Tinatin said, it's probably part of the season as well. Just try to eat healthy and do stuff you like and you and your nails will soon be in great shape! :)

  5. Cristina, you know we all love you and support you and will be waiting patiently for you whenever you decide to return. We all feel so much compassion for you and for you to share your feelings with your readers only makes you more human to us. It must be the time of year -- dark and dreary with winter closing in. I know I'm feeling that way and I hope it passes for you. Wishing you all the best and I just want to say that there are many people out there following you and wishing you well.

  7. Hi Cristina! Please know your subscribers will still be here whenever you get back to the blog. The holidays are so stressful for many. And I've gone through phases during rough patches of my life where I've had no interest in my nails. I love your blog, but I would never want it to turn into something that seems stressful or a burden. Please take care of yourself. That's way more important than nail polish or a blog. My thoughts are with you.

  11. Hang in there! We'll be here when you get back. Seems like everyone I know is going through some really serious difficulties. Just take it one day at a time and then one step at a time and you'll come through it all stronger than ever. At least, that's what I tell myself! Hugs 😊 Kim...

  13. Please, just take care of yourself. I hope you have someone to talk to, friend or professional. It's important to have someone you can be completely honest with and not have to worry about their feelings which is why I recommend a professional and I've been in the situation where I needed to find help or I would have drowned in my own depression. Anyway, you are a talented, smart, beautiful woman that is a blessing to anyone and everyone who is lucky enough to come in to contact with you. I hope you can take the time you need for yourself without guilt or worry about anyone else. Remember you have friends just a click away and you are only as alone as you decide to be. Take care of yourself and we will all be here when you are ready to come back.

  16. I completely understand the feeling that you're lifting the curtain to show people that things aren't always as bright and sunny as they seem on the outside. Thank you for being honest with a bunch of random strangers you'll probably never meet, that takes a lot of strength and courage. Just know that you have a lot of people who admire what you do and we are here eagerly awaiting the day that you look at your polished and you are suddenly filled with joy again. I hope you feel better soon =)

  17. It seems that having the creative gene brings with it some demons. Please do whatever you need to get to where life is good again.
