I work 60+ hours a week, so finding time to do anything outside of that is difficult, least of all my nails. On top of that, I haven't been feeling exceptionally inspired to create any new designs. I've found that in these past few weeks of down time I've been able to just paint my nails one color and marvel at the unique aspects of the polish all by itself. It's made me really happy.
And I'd be lying if I left this little part out...I've become completely engrossed in the A Song of Ice and Fire fandom and it's eaten my life. In the short span of two months I've read all the books, listened to hours and hours and hours of podcasts, began helping out with one of said podcasts, reblogged thousands of gif sets on tumblr, made countless friends equally obsessed, started thinking of myself as an actual Baratheon, and participated in a lot of really freaking strange jokes within the fandom. These books have taken over my life like nothing ever before. I love every single character (except Ramsay Bolton), I love every theory (except Tyrion is a secret Targaryen), I love every single fan, and I want to talk about it non-stop. So...yeah, you can blame George R. R. Martin for my disappearance from the nail art community. But I regret nothing. (and if you really feel like seeing how creepy I am, my tumblr is pretty much solely ASOIAF related...so check that out here). I probably lost like 20 followers by giving that link out...from the outside, ASOIAF fans look craaazy.
Moving forward, I do plan on getting back to regular posting here. It might not be daily like before, but my goal is two or more posts per week. Good news...I'm really energized about music again, so those posts will be coming back as well.
And to top it all off, today is my second favorite holiday of the year! New Year's Eve! (As you can tell, I rather hate holidays, unless they involve a party. I pretty much solely celebrate Halloween and New Years). So, I will share with you the nails I will be wearing for tonight's festivities...

See you all next year! And thanks for sticking with me during my long break.
