I Did Something Terrible!

After the challenge was done, I decided that because my nails have been taking a beating the past 3 months with all my challenges, I would start fresh, so I decided to cut them. Well, I was about halfway done with my first hand when I realized that prom is at the end of this week. I’m going to have little shorties for prom. NO. Not okay. I even have a design planned out that will match my shoes, but I need long nails.

Don’t despair because I thought of a very sneaky cheater plan. I am going to go to Walmart near my house and buy some fake nails (ew) and paint them and pretend that they are mine. Nobody will ever know! Unless they read my blog…. but yeah. I need to not spontaneously cut my nails next time. Here are some cute pictures of my shorties.

They aren’t that bad, and I know it isn’t even that big of a deal, #firstworldproblems, but I just really prefer long nails and I don’t like how my hands look with short nails.

Colors Used:

Base Coat- Essie Millionails

Wet N Wild- Black Créme

Day 10- Zuhair Murad

Well, thats another challenge done!

Based on the pretty white lace on nude here:

Jennifer-Lopez-In-Zuhair-Murad-2013-Golden-Globe-Awards

 

I stamped the same design over and over on top of itself to get a lacy look and I guess it turned out pretty. Its not exactly what I was going for but I still like it. I think the black accent one just kills it, but I didn’t really want to redo it.

Day 6- Inspired by L’wren Scott

Today i had such a hard time choosing what to do! there was one that i immediately wanted to do but i thought it wouldn’t turn out very well so I was going to do another dress but I was looking at my stamping plates and I saw a pattern that looked like the one I originally wanted to do! Yay! This is the dress:

Day 4- Inspired by Elie Saab

Today was inspired by Elie Saab. Many of his designs have plunging necklines, so I decided to integrate that into my mani, it didnt really turn out very “deep” but I thought it still looked very classy and I have already gotten compliments on it! 🙂
