Why I haven't been blogging as much as I used to.

I know that a lot of you have noticed my absence.  I used to post once daily, sometimes even more than that, but for the last few months it hasn't been even as often as once a week.  There's a reason for that.

A lot of things changed for me during my December vacation, mostly for the better, and one of the biggest changes has been a really difficult secret to keep.  But, I'm just about healed up now, so I thought it was about time I revealed that secret.

During my vacation, I traveled out of the country to undergo a ground-breaking, experimental surgical procedure that will allow me to wear more nail polish.  You know that I can't get enough nail polish, I just love it so much, and this seemed like the only logical solution.


Sure, it takes some getting used to, but I think the benefits far outweigh the risks.  I have a feeling this is going to be the next big development in cosmetic surgery and you'll have me to thank for it! You're looking at a trendsetter, right here.  Yep.

  23. I truly missed you out here but I was sure that you have a good reason for being absent and just patiently waited for any of your posts (and each of them avidly!!! Cudos to you to have participated in experimental surgery - for every routine surgery we know today, there were some people like you who dared to take the risk for trying something innovative - thanks for taking the lead -b.t.w. I love your mani but twist my arm and turn my head, I cannot remember the name of this Illamasqua sprinkled polish ;-) - take care - Christine

  24. Great, now all the cool kids will be doing it! Lol

  25. Haha, six fingers, great April Fool's Joke!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh my gosh, this was amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Okay-- I am in Europe and so I am probably seeing this earlier than anyone else. I forgot what day it was -- but knew it was a joke. I hope you are blogging less because good things are happening in your life-- and if it's for not so good reasons, I hope they are going better. Warm regards to you.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hahahaha perfect post for today!
    I can see it must take very much getting used to, also it must be difficult to type now, since that extra finger doesn't have a job to do!
    Great Idea, I might consider the same ;)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Awesome! I want one too! ;D

    ReplyDelete

  37. Is this another polish joke for the 1st of April????:)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Where did you get that surgery! I think i need it!! <3 <3 <3 Oh my gosh cant believe no one else thought of it first! You're such an innovative person Scrangie ;)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Finally! What a great idea. I was already thinking it is so unreasonable to have so much nail polish, and then so little surface to wear it on. Thank you for breaking the boundaries and working towards a society that accepts (and cherishes!) not only enhanced breasts, lips, etc, but also adds parts where they are direly needed.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Lol, I love it! The nail polish has to get used up somehow. I'm going curious to see how much that picture gets floated around on Pinterest. This post makes me wonder if people have been too nosy with you...

  82. Oh, damn, my insurance will NEVER cover this surgery. *sad face*

    ReplyDelete
  83. You always come up with a great April Fools Joke! - I would be laughing more if I was not going under the knife myself in a week's time for my 5th attempt at mastectomy reconstruction...they keep failing despite I have top guys doing them - grafts as I could not have implants for medical reasons...but I got started on a bad foot - er job and it's been taking a ton of major surgery (not out pat in the doc office stuff) to try to fix it all - I am about ready to say take it all off and be flat if this does not work this time - but getting improvement in the past 2 times - just slow going it seems and not top priority when I have a bunch of more pressing med things going on.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Great surgery, hahaha! XD LOL

    ReplyDelete

  95. Hello! I am a silent follower of your blog in bloglovin.

    Your beautiful nails had me lusting after these nail varnishes from all other posts. I recently bought a batch of A-England polishes and I'm so far loving them! We don't get Essie, China Glaze or many other brands here so it's quite a hassle buying them online. Anyway, for now, I am happy to admire them from your posts. :D

    By the way, I nominated you for a Versatile Blogger Award. :)

    Hope you have a lovely day! xx
