I'm already missing daylight savings time. There's not much time to get photos before dark now, so tonight you guys get to watch me paint my nails.
I've learned that I can turn the LCD display on my new camera around to face the front so I can see what I'm shooting. I don't have to resort to cheesy mirror pictures (nothing says "date me" like a photo with your toilet in the background) or set the timer and just hope I'm in the frame. I do need a little more practice with it, though. Of over 60 pictures taken, I hated 58.
Why clear polish? It keeps my nails from looking unkempt so I can show off my rings, but it's way less maintenance than the colors. I didn't even remove the old stuff first, I just put a fresh coat on top.
