I use the blog as a pretext to do new things and so I went to Luxuria the other day and had my nails done.
Before: meh nails that could audition for The Crucible. Look at them, all modest and virtuous and about to tell on a witch:
After: space nails for the atomic age
I do like the way my hand is looming menacingly in that photograph. It's like the start of a low budget horror movie: 'THE HAND: Will You Escape Its Grasp?'
And I liked having my nails done, especially the hand massage. It turns out that something that millions of people do because they find it pleasant is indeed pleasant.
