This post is quite picture heavy! If you’ve peeked at my very brief bio on the About Me page then you’ll know that I’m in a band called Pitchbend. We play covers of a great variety of music from ZZ Top to Lady GaGa, all with generally a soul and blues feel. I love dressing up for gigs – I particularly love my very high platform heels! I bought a new pair from New Look recently but I wasn’t brave enough to perform in them at my gig at the weekend. I need more practice in them!

This was my first foray into wearing false nails. I love the idea of false nails – no clean up on your nails, instant length, no sitting around waiting hours for them to dry. Wearing them on the other hand, turns out to be quite difficult. These are “European Short Nails” from eBay, and if you’ve got little nails like me, then they are *not* short. (More after the jump!)
