A little explanation...

Hellu ladies!

First I want to apologize for my absence... I miss you...
Not posting on my blog, breaks my heart a bit every day. I want to explain... or rather I try to.

At the moment it's very hard to find the time, to paint my nails, photograph them, edit them and last but not least, blog about it. My weekends are cramped full of stuff, you know round-birthday parties, weddings or other family parties.
During the week I have to work, keep the house in order, do dinner and so on.
And my nails give me a hard time too... my cuticles look like s**t, I think because of the now hot and dry weather and the AC is running everywhere and sucks all the niceness out of my skin... It's frustrating.
But it's not only me... You know Sammy from thenailasaurus - she also posted only four times these last two months, which, you will see if you look at her blog, is very less, compared to before. Like me, she didn't stop painting her nails, but, and I want to recite her now:
I'm still thinking about blogging every single day, multiple times a day... okay basically just all the time. It's in my bones now and I can't escape it. The ideas keep on coming but I'm lagging a little on the execution side of things. I'm sure some of you know exactly where I'm coming from with this. Please tell me I'm not alone! (Source: link)
Yes Sammy, you are not alone!
I love your art, you clean pics, they are so inspirational to me. Everytime you post a gradient, I want to do one too. I know exactly, how you feel and beg you, don't stop blogging! Don't force yourself, but don't stop entirely either! I would miss you so much!

And there is Robin from roaringnails, my personal blogging BFF. She is on an internship at the moment and very busy too. I miss her posts and nail art.

I really can't understand, how people have the time to write a new post everyday like Ithfifi from Ithinity Beauty or Eva from Flight of Whimsy (two very awesome blogs, if you don't know them)! I mean, this is awesome and I'm so jealous!
I feel pangs of conscience every time I see, that they wrote a new post.

And then I start thinking: Don't you want to post? Do you have a blogger burnout? Do you want to stop completely? Do you want to abandon your baby entirely? Are you passionate enough about all this?
These thoughts make me sad... really sad.

But then my Inner-Nail-Freak speaks up...

Yes! You want to post! Yes, you want to write about what you have done!
Maybe, you are a bit burnt-out, but this is nothing, a bit of time can't heal!
No! You don't want to stop, you love what you do!
No! You don't and won't abandon your baby! You can do this!!
Yes! You are a nail freak and you have the passion!

So there is hope!

I'm glad you have come so far in this post, that makes me happy!

I just wanted to write this off my heart, because it is a burden, I wanted to get rid off for a long time now.
I'm also sorry, that there are no pics today, but I don't have anything related to the mood of this post...
But I'm confident, that after nearly two years, I'm allowed to share something personal here, without sounding awkward (hopefully ;) ).

I have lots of unreleased pics in my stash, so if you stay tuned, you can see them in near future. And like I said before, I didn't stop painting my nails, so there will be nail art afterwards too!

Thank you, really thank you, for reading all this! Please share your thoughts, I'm curious!



  1. I totally get you Franzi!! I have the same thing going on right now as you mentioned - just no time for blogging! Last week I walked around with the same polish on my nails for the entire week just because I didn't have time to paint them with something new. I hope I'll adjust to the internship/work thing and find a new rythm, as I also hope that you will be able to find time for posting again too! :D

  2. Oh yes I can totally understand. I also have this at the moment. It's very hard to keep on posting in my usual routine. But I hope we will all make it back to where we were ;)

  3. Well we all have life beside being a blogger. we understand. Life happens all the time :P I havent posted myself frequently. work deadlines eats my times |:

  4. Oh Frankie! <3 Don't be disheartened!! I love your blog and nail art. It's not easy to keep up all the time, trust me, I struggle too. There was a point, I think where I was panicing each night that I had nothing to post, in that down time I managed to get a few blog posts a head and in doing so allowed myself a much less stressful situation (I am a really anxious person and I stress out if there is nothing to stress out about..! ) Because I got a head a little, each new post was just an addition. I'm now able to stay about 8-10 posts ahead and I don't need to paint everynight but only because I had that down time to begin with and I don't actually have any commitments like children or studying..or working.. I completely abandoned commenting and blog visiting recently because I had to fly home for a funeral short notice - but thats ok. That was more important and its good to realise that there are other things that come first.

    What you should do is enjoy the fun events you've been going to, make the most of these things because your blog will still be there and we arn't going anywhere.

    You will get your mojo and flow back when it comes, just don't give yourself a hard time <3
