Purchased by Me

I CAN WALK! I CAN WALK! After 10 long weeks on crutches, an MRI and thinking I might need surgery I have finally gotten the all clear from my surgeon! No more crutches, no more cast, just a brace and a few weeks of physio to build my strength back up. I am insanely relieved and over the moon that I won't need surgery and have some freedom back finally.

My nails have been bare the past few days because honestly my stomach was in knots waiting for the results of the MRI that I couldn't muster a manicure. I did these ikat and accent nails about a week or so ago and absolutely loveeeddd wearing these.

These were actually the good luck nails that I wore for my MRI because I couldn't use glitter. I was browsing through tumblr and found this manicure and just knew I needed to recreate it.

I started with Essie Watermelon on my accent nails and Barielle Swizzle Stix on my ikat nails. Then I used a striping brush and Watermelon and white creme and Swizzle Stix to create my ikat pattern. Loving this ikat look.

This was a fun look to wear and apparently it brought me good luck as I can walkkkkk!!!! :D

Well what do you think of this nail look? I'm off to enjoy my new found freedom! Probably just by walking around my apartment, but still! :D

Have a great day!
