My nails get quite a hammering with day to day activities so it's quite difficult to keep a full set going. Apart from being on the ends of active fingers and hands they do quite a few jobs themselves. If you are particularly squeamish avoid reading the following list.

Nail activity list

Scraping bottoms of pans
Picking and flicking!
Scratching back and cats
Picking up very small objects such as pins and needles
Squeezing spots!
Picking bits out of the corners of eyes
Drumming out tunes on surfaces when bored
Picking scabs off wounds
Screwing screws
Cleaning out other nails
Pushing back cuticles

I'm sure you can think of more uses.

When I can I like to dress them up. Black dress for dancing this week - so black nails to match. So that I'm not too funereal DD put a daisy motif on one finger nail.

'Diamonds' of course!

The batting has arrived - I'm busy practising quilting.

PS Bets, I totally approve of your daughter's colours. What a gal!


  1. I like black nail polish too.... It goes with most winter outfits. My currently colour is orange with a sparkly gold top coat. It looked nice for a Ball on Saturday but has been difficult to co=ordinate with work outfits this week. Jx

  2. I love the daisy motif, fun. I very rarely wear nail polish on my fingers, I don't like the feel of it, it makes me feel claustrophobic somehow. I know, I'm weird.

  3. Oh I do like a black nail neatly done - yours are a lovely shape too.


Thank you for your comments. it's always exciting reading them.
