Orly Fresh.... NUBBINS!!!!

Last time I did a big nail chop was 2 months ago and while I did do a major chop I left a nice bit of free edge. Fast forward 2 months and my nails were pretty much long again. Since they grow so quickly and we got the new house, which means I'll be participating in some remodeling work I decided I needed another chop. The longer nails do not get in the way and in fact we've already taken out the whole kitchen over the weekend and I had no issues or breaks. I just didn't want to have to worry about dealing with any breaks mid project.  I was sitting around yesterday watching tv and figured hey why not. So I cut and filed them down to the bone, well almost. It is so odd to look at the palms of my hands and not see any nails just finger tips! So It has been years since they've been this short, even before the days of the longer nails I always had some free edge. I was curious to see how they looked  super short and well they're sooo tiny!! my pinky is just a touch wider than a tic tac.

okay about the color.... This is a two coater, and it dries matte. I threw on a top coat and this baby just sings! So I think this is the perfect skittles green color.  This color makes me happy and it totally makes my nubbins feel fresh!

  3. I wont lie, I prefer the nubbins to the long nails. But both work well for you I think! Hope they don't drive you too nuts as they grow back.

  10. I much prefer shorter nails, polish looks so much better on them.  A good chop down every couple of months is so liberating!

  16. Your nails look amazing short! I think they look younger, fresher, and less dated. Long nails are a trend of the past, in my opinion.

  19. I love your nubbins! As an esthetician, I always tell my clients that a nicely manicured set of shorter nails look the best with a bright or intense polish colour.
