I don't know if anyone paid any attention to my nails in the previous posts, BUT THEY'RE SHORT. I CHOPPED THEM OFF AND I DON'T KNOW HOW TO LIVE ANYMORE. Okay, I didn't "chop" them off, I used a file and they're not exactly short, but they're short according to my standards.
The reason why I decided to have short(er) nails this time, was because I would've had to file down the length anyway and rebuild them, because they were starting to get crooked (this is something I do every three months, because I want to have my nails straight, so they don't give off a witchy old woman -vibe, being so long and everything).
So I thought, why not try something new while I'm at it? I could do shorter nails without removing everything just yet. And here's what I came up with.
I wanted to try the square shape, because I've never had that before and something about the C-curve fascinates me (but I totally forgot to take pics of that...). Anyway. Good practise, but I think I won't be doing this shape again for a while. I filed off 3cm of my previous length so these feel really short to me, but what makes the most difference, is the shape.
I'm so used to having stilettos and have zero problems dealing with them and the main difference between these two shapes, is that it is so much harder to focus my touches with these! Because stilettos are pointy, you have one tiny "sharp" area you use when touching things, these on the other hand, have a much larger "touching area" or whatever I should call it.
So it makes me feel a bit clumsy at times. Doing my hair feels especially weird, because I use my long nails for combing it, parting my hair and it feels good to be able to touch my scalp. With these I can't and it does feel weird, when you're used to basically having combs and brushes as your hands instead lol. Does that sound weird?
On the upside though, picking up coins from my wallet is faster, but I think that's mostly because of the length, not the shape.
I finally got to use Pay Day! It's sooo pretty and I had to paint my toe nails with it too, haha. So sparkly. The other colors I picked were Look, Don't Tusk, an off-white creme by Color Club and Camelot, a black creme by A England, which has been seen often in this blog before too.
For decorations, I used some water decals, silver nail art tape and studs. I wish I would've had bigger pearls to use, so they would've looked more like this, instead of what ended up on my nails...
For some reason, to me these look like they could be wedding nails... I don't know, what do you think? Too bad I don't have any upcoming weddings to attend!
I don't know if I will return to my usual shape and length yet.. I'm kinda tempted to try an oval shape of this length, with really simple and plain decorations next. I kinda have a vision in my head but we'll see!
The long stilettos are what I'm most comfortable with, but atleast you don't get to say I never try anything new :D
