Normally I avoid superlatives – it’s only a matter of time before they get debunked, anyway. But this time I’m going whole-hog and using not only superlatives, but also the word “important” in association with nail polish.
First I want to reiterate something I know I’ve seen others say before; the nail polish blogging community is filled with some of the nicest people there are out there. But I learned the truth of that even before I became a blogger myself, and I was just drifting about the Ethernet as a reader.
There are two people, specifically, that jump immediately to my mind. One of them is Wixbetty, but as she deserves her own post, I’ll go into more details later. The other is the incomparable Jen of NeverTooMuchGlitter fame.
As you may recall, I have alluded once or twice to some tough times I’ve been going through. Well, a few months ago I first started a correspondence with her about some really nice nail art designs that she creates and sells on her Etsy web store. Shortly thereafter, I was in desperate need of her frankening skills for another reason.
Between the two of us, we agreed that I’d write a post of my experiences, and she’s posted that today. Please either go check out this post, or at least check out her blog in general (the link is above), because not only is she one of the best people out there, her frankens are amazing and her writing is really sharp. She finds inspirations from the most unique sources, and every once in a while you can find some jaw-dropping over-the-top Japanese nails featured there. I love to look at them and try and figure out how people go through one hour of life with those claws (and their detritus) attached.
In closing, I’d like to put up a clip from one of the movies that most helped me through this tough time. Whenever I had moments of pain and doubt, I remembered that just because something isn’t true doesn’t mean you can’t believe it, and that True Love never dies.
If you have not seen Secondhand Lions, do yourself a favor and find it. It didn’t get too much attention when it first came out, but it is a phenomenal film.
Thanks for reading.
