A Sort Out

Nail fail!

I decided to treat myself to new nails for Christmas! I have wanted long almond nails for ages (ask anyone on my Pinterest feed!!) so I did it! I got up one morning and squeezed into a last-minute cancellation. It never once even crossed my mind that I would physically struggle to pick up any …
