NOTD: Nubs! And pink!

I mercilessly filed my nails down recently, now they're the shortest they've been since I stopped biting. Why would I do such a terrible thing? Sadly, having long nails sort of interfered with playing the harp. A little. Well, a lot. I hope eventually I'll figure out how to play the harp with long nails, but for now they keep getting caught in the strings and end up making a horrific buzzing sound. And when they get caught too far in, it hurts!

So. Short nails. That still doesn't excuse the pink, but I decided to try it out. It's only barely pink, anyway, it's seriously blackened.



I have to say, having short nails makes it much harder to be neat. I've pretty much mastered the technique of applying polish without needing any cleanup, but somehow with short nails that all goes out the window. Also the topcoat completely smeared my design. It's frustrating, because I waited around twenty minutes before applying topcoat and this *still* happened!

I used one coat of Orly Moonlit Madness over black, and the silver is a no-name brand which I love to use in marbling. Oooh, maybe I'll try marbling next! It's been a while since I've done that! It's also been a while since I seriously sat down to make jewelry. I should do that too.

I think my ADHD is coming out. Now I'm in the mood for potato chips.


  1. Aww...your nubs are cute. Love that color and the design. I keep nails grow to a certain length (which is not extremely long) and then inevitably one breaks so I have to cut all of them back. Ugh! My nails have never looked like the nail bloggers that I read. I'm doing something wrong. LOL Perhaps I should try some biotin.

    1. I've been thinking of taking biotin for my hair- it's thin and I shed too much. TBH my nails have seen a huge improvement since I started strictly filing as opposed to clipping. I don't know exactly why, but it seems to make them a lot stronger. They're definitely not as impressive as a professional blogger though :) I'd die for Scrangie's nails!

    2. I know...I love Scrangie's nails! They are beautiful!!!
