I love painting my nails and doing nail art but sitting down and doing them has been like pulling teeth during this pandemic. I think the reluctance comes from how much I wash my hands right now. I already do a lot of that because of the pets but now it’s twice or three times as much and nail polish does not stand a chance.
I change my nails often but I do want wear them for at least a couple of days. LOL.
That being said, sometimes, the call for nail art is just too strong and I have to give in. I had an overwhelming urge to do a sugar-spin (which I do have to take off immediately because it takes too long to dry). ‘Why do you do it then, Monica??’ You may ask. Well, there is something really soothing about this technique for me. It’s my favorite. But, let me say in no uncertain terms. It is NOT an arthritis-friendly technique. Let me repeat, this technique is not arthritis-friendly. As much as I would love to do it all the time, my poor swollen, rheumatoid arthritis-ridden fingers can’t manage it.

It’s been a while since I last did this kind of nail art but I am thrilled with the result. It looks like a delectable red velvet cupcake with frosting and sprinkles! What do you think? Do you like it?
