There's been an accident...

... and it isn't pretty. Wednesday started out like any other normal Wednesday would. I went to work, answered e-mails, returned phone calls, the usual. Then, in the afternoon, I had to replace a tuning gauge on a timpani. The pedal is spring loaded and you have to be careful that it doesn't snap back and slam down on your hand. Well.... I didn't quite get the pedal SLAMMED down on my hand, but it did get pressed on a little bit too hard. My pointer and middle finger nails just snapped. The guys I was with were like, "Are you ok?!?!" And I was all like, "NNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO... That's my picture taking hand!!!!!!". It was a tragedy. So I cut down all my nails, but I wanted to cry. It took me such a long time just to get them to the length they were, which wasn't very long, but I liked them! Sigh. The life of being a percussionist. 

So anyway! Today is a special polish I received in a swap I participated in with my friend, Kati. She lives in the Netherlands and they can get polish there that we can't get here. She was so kind as to send me some real gems, and I can't wait to post more of them! This is Essence 03 Blue Ray. It's a blue/purple duochrome and is really cool!! It reminds me of the back of a CD. Or fine, a blue ray disc. Hence the name. :)

Please don't judge my short nails! :(



You can see the purple flash here! And the piece of cotton stuck to my ring finger! Grr.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you all have a great weekend!!
