Manicure for Mini Nubbin Nails

I love black nails.  Love them!  I'm very glad they are in style right now.  However, and this is just my opinion- I think they look pretty witchy when they are on long nails.  Luckily (or not!!) for me, my nails are currently itsy bitsy little nubs.  Blame the Praxis!  And blame my fiance's car.  I tried to shut the trunk in the rain the other day and broke two of my nails.  I didn't even know nails this short could break.

Anyway- tiny little nails means YAY!  Black nail polish!  So I hooked it up with some black, and one of the polishes I got in my stocking, topped with a matte topcoat.  Looks pretty cute, if I do say so myself!

Products Used:
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Black Out

I have to plug myself.  I'm sorry!  Countdown to the Praxis has reached critical levels, and I need something to clear my mind.  So... here's a shameless self promotion!  Don't fret, these won't happen too often :)

Tons of new things in my etsy shop!  Including some awesome nail polish jewelry and more on the way!

Another Freehand Floral Mani!

I really loved a few of the floral manis I did previously (here and here) and I'm not opposed to tooting my own horn, so I did another!  I tried out a lovely pink color I got from a friend for Christmas.  It's really bright and gorgeous, so I went with darker grey and black for the roses.  And sprinkled in some little white accent dots and glitter for fun and variety!

Also notice my poor little nubbins? :(  I had a super turbulent flight on the way home, combined with returning to internship, wedding planning, and the Praxis II that I'm taking on Saturday.... and yowza, my nails have had it!

Here you can sort of see the glitter I slapped on there.

Products Used:
Orly Fabulous Flamingo
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Wet Cement
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Black Out
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in White On
Essie Pure Pearlfection

Hope everyone is having a fabulous beginning to their 2012!  And may you never have to take the Praxis II!
