Hearty Nails: More nu goth

This time monochrome isn't black & white like it usually is, but navy blue and silver. I was going to use nail art bullions but I end up skipping them a lot of times because they're just annoying. I prefer dotting in silver, it's so much easier. The big cross on the ring finger is...well, not very straight, let's say, and that's because it's drawn with a toothpick. I have mentioned in the past how I sometimes get lazy to use my brushes (what with them getting dirty and having to clean them and all).

Hearty Offtopic: Welp update

Mi portátil se murió. Hace como dos semanas ya. Esa es básicamente la razón por la que el blog ha estado de vacaciones últimamente. No es que haya perdido las fotos que tenía guardadas, porque un día tuve la brillante idea de subirlas todas como borradores y ahora tengo como 20 borradores esperando a convertirse en posts como es debido. También tengo fotos de después del "incidente", pero no quiero pasarlas al ordenador nuevo todavía, porque no quiero llenarlo de cosas hasta ver si el de la tienda termina de pelearse con el cadáver de mi portátil viejo para poder sacarle todos los archivos que había ahí.

PERO. Esta entrada no la hago sólo para decir eso, que vale muy bien que aviso y tal, pero hay otra cosa, y es que quería felicitar públicamente a mi amiga Sara. Porque esta mañana según me ha visto conectada me ha saltado diciendo "Felicítame. Soy ingeniera."
Así que eso. Felicidades por acabar la carrera. El día que yo te venga diciendo "Felicítame, ya soy Traductora" te invito a tortitas otra vez XD

So my laptop died, about 2 weeks ago. That's basically the reason why the blog's been "on vacation". It's not like I lost all nail pics, because I had the brilliant idea of uploading them all as drafts one day and now have about 20 drafts waiting to be turned into proper posts. I also have new nail pics from after the "incident", but I don't want to put them on the new laptop yet because I don't want to fill it up before the guy at the computer store finishes fighting all my files out of the old laptop's corpse.

BUT that's not why I really wanted to write this post. There's something else, and that's publicly congratulating my friend Sara because this morning, as soon as she saw me online, she came up to me saying "Congratulate me, I'm an engineer."
So yeah, congratulations on finishing the degree. The day I go up to you saying "Congratulate me, I'm a Translator now", I'll make you pancakes again XD
