Nail Art

My finger nails used to be very long and very colourful …. (as you can see). However, every mommy will know it is almost impossible to keep them when you have small kid to take care of. They tend to poke or accidentally scratch our baby’s delicate skin. I find it a mission impossible to even wash Angel’s mouth and ears with my long nails too. Whenever I am putting nappy rash cream onto Angel on every diaper change, the cream will tends to go underneath my finger nails which are totally unhygienic!! So finally (1 month since Angel was born) I have them all cut short and keep them shorter and shorter (no more nail art, huk huk huk). I do miss my long nails "sometimes" so lately I starts wondering should I grow my nails back ..... ? But who will helped wash Angel’s ears and putting nappy rash cream on her, etc ? Sigh!!

What about other mommies ..... what do you wish you could have back before having your baby? Should be a lot I guess :) I do have a lot in mind ......... :)

Wow..look at those nails!!! You have very long fingers, nail art looks very pretty on yr fingernails. I've bought 2 bottles of OPI nail polish and only used it twice maybe..haha. With long nails, it's really unhygienic and difficult to tend to Gwen coz I might scratched her.

I have signed up with Adonis right before my wedding and I have only went for my facial once. Gwen stick to me like glue so I have yet to go for another facial.:(

Me too la.. missed my nail art. Use to do it before give birth.
But now, memang tak boleh do nail polishing at all, very unhygienic and difficult to do house work.

Cool nail art Caroline. U really have slender, long fingers, which adds to the beauty of having nail art! Me too after getting pregnant I stopped going for my manicure and pedicure as I'm worried that the chemical from the nail colour and remover will affect the bb. So until now, I just managed to do wid my DIY nail colour on my feet only, as having nail colour on our fingers are quite dangerous esp when we are dealing wid our child's food. I'm still growing a bit of nails, but they tend to chip as and when I do housework, so you can see that I have some short and long finger nails.. Haha.. of coz not that long as your pic!

Mummy Gwen, actually I think my nails make my finger looks longer leh, hahahaha .... that's why I love to keep long nails but not anymore :( Wah .... facial ah?? I have never done any facial in the skin care centre before leh, looks so luxurious hor ..... must be real nice having other people to pamper your skin once in a while :)

Serene, you missed your nail art too ah? .... now my finger nails ah really short and ugly, always cut them very very short because you know la ... when washing Angel's pet pet, don't want 'something' get suck underneath so you can imagine how short my nails are now :( :(

Hi Mery, thank you oh .... I love those nail art a lot too :)

Rachel, oh ..... even now you still get to do your nail art ah?? Hahahaha ..... not bad leh. I hardly can 'fatt how' with my nail art now coz sometimes afraid it will get into Angel's food coz it will always chipping here and there :(

Esmeralda, DIY nail colour?? You mean you DIY your nail polish?? You've got your point there!!! Really dangerous especially when preparing our bb's food because after washing poo poo, something is bound to stuck under your finger nails unless you brush them with anti-bacteria soap everytime. That is why my nails at the moment is extremely short! You can't even see the white tip anymore :(


PeiWun, Ya lor ... life before and after having our own child is really very different hor ....

Doreen, Ohhh .... I want my belly back too!!!!!!! huk huk huk :( I think mine is worst then your leh, I even cried for the first few months after Angel was born whenever I look at them, now maybe be a bit immune already but still, do not dare to look at the mirror that much still :( :(

Hi HN, actually long hair is not that hard to maintain and did not contradict with taking care the your bb leh ..... why not? I think the postpartum hair loss period already long over by now so can start to have back those long and silky hair :)

Caroline, nice nail art.
I think you have sacrifice alot, by not keeping long nails now. As you said, is very difficult and dangerous when handling our bb.

For me, I wish I have more sleep and I want my body figure back..haha

Wonderful Life said...

Same here!! I want to have my body figure back also!! Looks like it's not happening lor... :( sigh.

MommyAngel said...

Hi Joanne and Doreen, I think I want to have the model figure leh coz my initial body shape not that good also, kekekeke ....... but at least better then now la :) Do you think those Marie France Centre will do wonders?? Still thinking whether it's worth it to spend so much and gamble for the results at the end or not ....

karenyiau said...

I only do my nails when CNY maybe, haha. Anyway, what I wisht o have back is my waistline loh, now got expanded already..... :(

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

I am not sure about those slimming centre, but no harm you give a try (hehe...if you have enuf investment on it, coz I have heard from my fren, normally they will ask for more and more money to buy this and that after you joined the prog).

For me, what I am doing now is cut down my food intake..hehe. The most economical way of losing weight.

MommyAngel said...

Hi Joanne, yes ... I can see that you have your slim 'curve' back from your sister's wedding picture, you look gorgeous ..... I don't eat much as well but still, I keep gaining weight, sigh!!

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Thanks Caroline. Actually is a real tough time for me to cut down my consumption in meat and bread, coz i love these food.

But when I see that I can fit in that dress, haha..i think is worth it.

Dont worry Caroline, u can do alot more better in losing weight. We sama2 kambateh!
