2021 Nails

I love nails! I have my nails done 98% of the time. That 2% represents when I’ve taken off acrylics, press ons, or nail polish. In the Reels above you see my 2021 nail journey. I stuck to regular nail polish and acrylic nails for the majority of the year. It wasn’t until October that I started wearing press ons. The acrylic nails are done by my nail lady while the regular polish and press ons are done by me.

I discovered ILNP nail polish late 2020 so the majority of my nail polish colors in the beginning of 2021 were that brand as I learned the best way to make the manicure last. When I switched to press ons in October I expanded my size range. I prefer small sized press ons because they’re less likely to pop off but I found some medium sized ones that gave me added length without the worry. I dipped into the large sized section and I learned that they’re not that practical because of my line of work. Although pretty, they are not as durable.

I would say that my nails were pretty good last year. I definitely branched out in designs and got plenty of compliments.

2021 Recap | @savirjk

Happy New Year!

I’ve shared a 2021 recap that features some random moments of the year. Going back in my camera roll looking for pictures to include was like reliving all the good and bad moments that I experienced. It also gave me a chance to reflect on the current state of my life. 

The last couple of months have been taxing on my mental health. This year I decided that I will just do things for myself. I’m not one for New Year’s Resolutions but this year I decided to give it a try.

In the first week of the year I have started to develop a routine that will allow me to stick to my goals. I’m not one to share my goals when it comes to doing new things but the couple of times I’ve mentioned new ideas, I’ve realized that some people just don’t get it. In the past, the opinions of others would deter me from trying new things but now I don’t care. I’m doing things for me. It is my solo adventure.

So here’s to 2022!
