I'm starting out the new year with nubs. My cracked/patched left index nail broke off completely yesterday while I was taking off polish to do a New Year's mani. I also had two patched nails on my right hand that I was sick of dealing with, so at that point I basically said screw it, and proceeded to just chop them all down. My nails are never a consistent length anyway, so what the hell! And I think my New Year's design turned out pretty cute in the end with the new nubs.
I kept it pretty simple. I've kind of felt uninspired lately so I almost didn't do a New Year's mani at all this year. But I decided to paint my nails with Zoya Tomoko (3 thin coats). Then after they were painted, I tried to figure out what the hell to put on them, lol. I knew I wanted to use the champagne flutes from Winstonia plate W117. Then I came across a circles pattern on Pueen plate 36 that reminded me of champagne bubbles, so I combined the two.
The circles pattern was stamped on every nail except my ring finger. For the accent nail, I stamped the champagne flutes first and then stamped random parts of the circles pattern around the flutes. Everything was stamped using Konad Special Polish in black pearl.
I do love when my nails are longer, but I'm really enjoying this length as well. Maybe that's why I can never decide on one length to keep them at all the time. Anyway, hope you all had a great New Year's Eve and here's to a great 2014! Thanks for following along in 2013. :)
