The One With Another Dry Brush Mani - and a Story!

Nothing to Disclose

Good morning Polished World. How are you all doing on this wonderful Saturday?  I apologize for my lack of posting this week.  I have the posts all ready to go, my issue is my drive to actually write a post.  Actually, it's not even that.  This week was soooooo busy with work that by the time I got home and sat down, I just wanted to watch some tv and relax.  For anyone who is curious, my current show that I'm binging is Modern Family.  I had to take a break from watching everything and anything MCU related.  Don't worry, once Season 11 is over, this girl is going back to watching the MCU movies in's a problem.

Anyways, today's manicure is a simple dry brush manicure.  Needed a little bit of a break from the crazy nails after Easter was over.  It's been so long since I've done actual nail art like those bunnies that my mind can't process having intricate nails too many times in a row.  Is that weird?  Maybe.  I guess you can say that I need a bit of a palette refresh here and there, and this dry brush is just that.

Let's take a look at the photos that I thought looked good until I took the manicure off...

Colors Used:
  • Jessica Cosmetics - Oasis
  • ORLY - White Tips
  • ORLY - Liquid Vinyl
I don't know about all of you, but blue is literally my favorite color when it comes to nail polish.  I feel the most content and normal with blue nails.  I remember when I was working my high school job, long before my nail polish addiction, this one customer made the RUDEST comment to me about just wearing a swatch of a blue polish.  To keep this content family friendly, this woman said that blue polish meant something horrible about my character as a person.  I remember being offended by it, then brushing it off and just not giving a crap what that lady thought.  My blue nails made me happy.  I wasn't going to let some middle age woman ruin that for me, a teenager.  

Sometimes when I'm painting my nails with blue, I will randomly think about that woman's comment.  How awful it was for her to say this to a young girl.  I then start to wonder what she'd think about my nail art and it makes me want to do something crazy or SUPER blue.  While this nail art isn't the craziest or overwhelmingly blue, it made me think of this story and want to share it with you.  Truly, this wasn't the direction I even imagined going with this post tonight, but hey, everything happens for a reason, right?

Who knows why she said what she did, what her motives were, or if she's ever done anything like that since; in the end I'm happy, I let my blue nail polish loving, nail art flag fly high and enjoy the hell out of myself.  So, long story short, don't ever let a bully pull you away from something you love.  Let their hate, comments, or whatever push you to be even better and inspire you to do something even more amazing.

Hope you all have an amazing day, remember how awesome you are, and do whatever it is that makes you happy!

Until next time, <3.
