I know I posed a teaser pic of the new shape what seems like ages ago, here is the full post now.
I've been wanting something different for a while when it comes to the length and shape of my nails. At first I was thinking just taking the plunge and cutting them down all the way, but the more I thought of it, the the more I didn't want a huge dramatic change right away. Solution? Square them off! The biggest difference is that I can actually use them for scratching an itch. When they're rounded off they aren't as effective. The corners of the squared nails make for a sharper scratching edge. hah okay so onto the nail polish!
I'm sure a lot of you have already seen swatches of this one on everyone and their mothers blog but it's my turn. I usually have a hard time picking what polish to wear next but when this beauty came in the mail it was love at first sight! I wore this one for almost a full 2 weeks. I know, Crazy! That's why you haven't been seeing a lot of posts from me. It took three coats to get it opaque. This polish is a really really thick gel and a little difficult to work with because of the amount of glitter in it. I 'd say I used at least 20% of the polish in the bottle for this one manicure. Even with shorter nails I think you'd still end up using at least 10%. This is one of those "special" occasions polishes (although with the amount of polish I have I may never get around to wearing it again). This is a limited edition release from Cult Nails so if you want it , you better get it before it's gone! It's well worth the 10 bucks plus shipping. I'd buy it again and I hate paying double digits for a bottle of polish!
