Happy Hump Day!
Today I have another wear test on the Jamberry nail wraps for you. Lately I just haven't really felt like polishing my nails, so I've turned to the nail wraps. If I'm patient during application they will stay put for several days, so then I don't have to worry about changing my manicure. Once I get back into a polishing mood I'll be back with more pretty lacquers! :)
So, this is a mixed mani wrap. I love these because then IF I want to mix and match I don't have to dig through my stash.. everything is on the one sheet. Big plus! This one is a satin finish wrap, which I really love. It has a nice sheen to it, but not so shiny like the metallic wraps. This wrap is currently available so if you are interested let me know! I will put you in touch with a Jamberry consultant to get you going.
So what have you been up to? Do you remember when I told you about my back muscle strain? It was rough getting back to running. The first 2 times out I did more of a run/walk thing, and I could feel the muscle that had been hurt getting tired faster. I added back in some more core work and some strength and mobility exercises.. I like to call them Jane Fonda moves, which is a little funny, but they are SO effective! Anyway, the third run back I was able to do 3 miles non-stop. I kept on at a slow pace and only increasing mileage if things felt fine. I'm happy to tell you that last week I finished my first double digit run since the injury and since my half marathon in December! I did have wonderful running company and I'm so thankful. I am not sure I would have made it through all the way without her. I hope I continue to feel good! Injuries are never any fun, but runners are especially more moody when they are sidelined.. am I right? Any runners out there?
So, this is what they look like today (day 7). Would you just LOOK at my middle finger who betrayed me?! I felt a little snag a couple of days ago so I decided to remove the wrap and check things out. My nail was totally split on one side! Gasp! No good.. not sure how I did it, either. Probably just using them as tools again! ugh.. If it hadn't been for that nail all of them would have been intact. I do have the tip wear, total tell-tale sign that I don't know how to be gentle with my fingers. ha ha!
Not sure what will be next, folks.. polish? I do have a really lovely hunter green that's just perfect for St. Patrick's Day. I also have a really cute nail wrap (another mixed mani).. decisions, decisions.. Hope you all have a lovely day!
