Stoned At the Nail Salon

There’s something so feminine about typing while the nail paint is drying. It’s your favorite shade, almost nude but a bit darker. While you type carefully, some of the spilled paint near the edges of your nails ruins your keyboard. You could have been more careful, but eh.

It’s early morning, early for someone who wakes up late. December has just begun, and you’re working on your table. Listening to some of the songs you used to listen to before, but somehow your algorithm has forgotten it like you’ve forgotten some of the people.

And suddenly, that one song appears for you, it is Stoned at The Nail Salon. You’ve spent hours listening to that song before. You’ve spent several days waiting for her album. And Lorde being Lorde, dropped this song just for you!

Before this, you really vibed with ‘Liability’ and ‘Writer in the Dark’, and now, every time you paint your nails, you want to listen to ‘Stoned at the Nail Salon.’

And pretend you’re the main character doing self-care after a storm.
