I don't even know what to call these..

Hey guys! Something very simple today.. these are actually a few weeks old, dunno why I never posted them. Anyway! This is a very simple mani with hand-placed glitter and framing. Is that what they call it? I have no idea, I can never keep up with what people call all the trends these days. These were fun, though! Very sparkly in sunlight, hard to capture in pictures sadly.

Next week, I'll be off to Atlanta for Dragon*Con once again! I can't wait.. I really want to do some fun nails this time. Maybe something super crazy.

Hope you all have a great day, and thanks for reading! :)

Anchors away! Nautical nails

Hey guys! These were done for a theme challenge for a nail group I'm in.. my first time ever doing one of those, haha. The theme was nautical/sailor related, so I went with anchors and nautical stars, obviously. They're alright.. I'm not 100% happy with them, the stars especially.. I hate stars. I was hissing and cursing the entire time I was doing them.

I've gotten a few questions about the change in my nail shape.. I was bored, mainly. Oval's are kind of a pain to shape, but I'm enjoying how elegant they look and how they make my fingers look longer. And yes, these are still my natural nails. I'll probably be cutting them short after Dragon*Con.

Not much else to say, really.. been hot as hell here! Ugh. Hope everyone's been staying cool. See you next time!
