“So Katherine,” you might have been asking recently, “Why aren’t you posting? Where did you go?”
Well dear reader, the answer is as follows: When I got home at 2am a couple days ago I noticed that the edges of two of my nails had broken off, and I decided it was time to try something new! Why not go for a bit of a coffin shape?!
So I did it.
So I’m sharing this all with you for two reasons:
- So you never make the same impulse decision that I did early in the morning, and
- I need your input on if I should tough it out with these until I get my regular length and shape back, or if I should just nubbify them for the week or so until they grow back proper. I even put a nifty little poll at the end so you can chime in. 🙂
First up let’s look at what my nails looked like before, when I had a softened square shape… For the purposes of this comparison I’ll be re-swatching OPI Cosmo With a Twist. Here is my original swatch with my original shape:
And now, dear readers, here’s the look that I shaped for myself at 2am:
EUUUGGHHHH I hate it. Hahaaaaaaa.
Here’s a look from another angle compared to my original shape:
Normally following my impulses actually works out pretty well for me… I’ve had a lot of great results from impulse moves, impulse haircuts, impulse trips… Apparently impulse nails are not for me, though. 🙁 Arrrrghhh.
I’m probably going to cut these babies down to nubs tonight, to be honest. What do you think, is that my best bet? Or should I leave them?
Just for fun, let’s have a poll!
Let me know what you think! If you have ideas other than nubbifying, let me know in the comments! Thanks guys. xx
