Woo, get me and my girlie fingernails. I can never usually grow my nails, they either break easily or I just get fed up and cut them. Even now I'm typing and thinking whether they are gonna to last as they just get in the way slightly. They tend to over power the finger tip and my fingertip gets very busy especially typing on my phone but we'll see. Some ladies have theirs really long and I'm always wondering how they cope.
I've never been a lady nail type of girl really, I don't go in for the false ones and have never visited a nail bar or had any sort of manicure but might have a go one day, just never felt it necessary. So it's Verse for Thursday and I decided while I was popping a bit of nail polish on I would write a poem. Obviously I wrote it about half an hour after my nails were dry. The 60 second polishes are bit vague, there is one thing, mine didn't dry in 60 seconds!!
Anyway here goes, hope you like it.........
Proper Lady Nails
I'm putting on nail polish would you believe
something my nails don't often receive
They are usually brittle and broken
cut short as a token
But I am now the owner of proper lady nails
Oh what colour should I apply?
clear, pink or red to glorify
It usually ends up all over the place
not very patient you see so may need to replace
But I am the owner of proper lady nails
I can't be doing with those plastic ones stuck on with glue
we already have one nail, so why have two?
They may not last long
but to me they belong
I am the owner of proper lady nails
I will probably end up cutting them all short
and the lady look I'll have to abort
I'm not used to it you see
and in the way they may be
But.....I can say I WAS the owner of proper lady nails
Thanks for reading and please come back tomorrow for a bit of gluten free fun on Free From Friday.
