My new love affair.

Is it appropriate to break up via blog post?  Surely not, but here I am doing it anyway. You guys, I am officially a cheater.  Yes, I am confessing.  I am cheating, and it feels spectacular!   

I am a new woman!  I feel liberated, empowered and a whole new sense of beauty!  I am even rediscovering all my old polishes, all of a sudden I love all of them even more!  I feel so lightweight and airy, almost like I'm floating through my day with no worries and no fears.  
2 coats over Misa Fashionista.
2 coats over Ulta3 Royal.
2 coats over black.

So, to my old Elvira-ish, witch nails that are reading this from the trash can and no doubt feeling the painful stab of adultery, I don't love you anymore!  You look icky, and gross and you piss me off  when I  look at old photos of you.  I am actually embarrassed I let it go on for so long!  My new nubbins understand me, they look great in everything, and they don't severely cramp my style like YOU did.  They may not be here to stay, but for now I couldn't be happier.

Love, MM

  1. I go through that everytime my nails break off to nubbins, but my love for the beauty of long witch nails always comes back.

  6. i know thats got to be very liberating- its also sensible to have a manageable nail lenght cuz when they are elvira-ish and they break its usually in the nail meat and it hurts like the dickens. btw the nfu-ohs looks gorgeous daahling :)

  7. Oooooh, I'm a recent short-nail (but not too short of course) convert too, and I LOVE how your nails look in these new photos! So beautiful!

  9. They look much better shorter. I can't stand it when people grow their nails out too long, it looks unkempt & gross. Yours still looked nice, but were on the verge of being fetish-long.

    Short, well-kept nails are so much better looking. I believe in the whole 1/4 nail bed length free-edges thing. But I guess I'm biased too cause I work with my hands constantly(leatherworking) & can't stand having nails longer than maybe 2-3 mm at the most. More power to the women that can grow claws, but I don't know how they function day to day. I love manicures, I paint my nails at LEAST every other day(usually every day), but I could never handle being hindered by them. I'd rather live life & do stuff than worry about breaking a nail, lol...

  11. I love both lengths of your nails. I think since they were all the same length and shape, the fact that they were longer was ok! But I love your short ones too. I envy you! Your nails rock! =)

  12. I love the length of your nails right now. They look well-groomed. Also I think that when they are that not-too-short/not-too-long length, you can pull off crazy polish colors better. Congrats on your mini-epithany.
    Now, I must acquire that red jelly. Even if my 14 y/o son tells me that I look like a politians wife with red nails.
