Admittedly, this was a slow-ish week. I’m entering week four of “blogging without home internet” so my days are spent in a café answering emails, blogging, and doing all manner of internet related work. Since I have a limited amount of sitting up time in a day and can’t pace myself the way they taught me in rehab with regular intervals on the couch, I have to spend a lot of the balance of time taking it pretty easy.
I took this opportunity to learn how to do nail art with striping tape and I have to say, I’m pretty happy with the results. The above design was created by painting the nails with Essie’s Good As Gold, then taping off the cross, then applying a layer of Revlon’s Knockout. I removed the tape while the black polish was still wet and sealed the design with a top coat. I know I didn’t have to explain exactly how I did this but this was the second most exciting this that happened to me this week.
The most exciting thing was my trip to Café l’Artère to see the Emma Frank Quartet at Pop Montreal. Emma was one of the first singers I met upon moving to Montreal so it was really nice to see her in her element. She performed songs from her latest album, For Being Apart, which is available now on iTunes. My favourite is the first track, Age of Doubt.
