Listening to: Purple Rain- Prince.
Two bloggers I love are Sheree from Glitz & Grime and Laura from A Forte For Fashion. Not only are these two ladies incredibly stylish- but their nail art is to die for. Please stalk through their blogs and follow them and share my envy! I'm incredibly jealous of their skill and beautiful designs, it makes me incredibly sad that I do a job where painted nails is a big no-no.
For those that don't already know, I'm a student nurse and have spent the majority of the last year gaining as much experience as possible working for NHS professionals as a health care assistant; and although I am incredibly overwhelmingly lucky to have this career and wouldn't change it for the world- I do miss having painted nails.
As any health care worker knows- nail varnish is a breeding ground for infection. Bacteria (such as MRSA) lives under painted nails and in chipped edges (more so under fake nails) so no decent nurse would have varnish on. I know I might be overreacting as the likelihood of spreading infection and disease is rare but when you work with sick people I just can't bring myself to possibly cause any further harm, and I'm petrified of accidentally scratching my boyfriend/ friends children/ my grandparents/ anyone with painted nails after I've been at work. I'm not ashamed to say I've worked with nurses and pulled them up on having painted nails. Yes its put me in the place of a bit of a busy body but I don't really care- I wouldn't want to be treated by anyone with nail varnish.
So it is incredibly rare I have the chance to paint my nails- until this bank holiday weekend!
(I think this is my favourite).
