Hi Girls! I hope you’ve all been having a great week! I’m really excited to share this post with you all because quite a bit has changed in my nail care routine since my last mani-related blog in May! (more…)
I get asked all of the time about my nail care routine. How do I grow them, shape them, keep them long, what products I use, how I do my own manicures – so many questions…which I’m always happy to answer!
I’ve drafted this post many times, but had yet to publish it (warning: it’s very long)! After receiving nail care Q’s from my most recent #ManiMonday (well, #ManiTuesday) Instagram post, I decided it was time to finally wrap this up & get it live!
You all know that I’ve experimented with a variety of nails shapes in the past, but this Summer I embraced one of the most drastic changes (for me) to date – Almond nails!
Per usual, I chronicled my manicures & was able to capture how this almond thing went down! Below you’ll see my nails grow & take their almond form from the beginning of June through the first week of August.
My nails have never been that long in my life! I was sure that I would break one in the 7-8 week span, so I was extra careful to wear gloves when doing the dishes, I did not use my nails as tools for ANYTHING, and was overall very cautious – a couple close calls, but to my utter surprise, they made it out unharmed!
So after my little stint with Almond nails, it was time to start fresh! I recently clipped them all off & vowed to take a brief break from gel to give them a breather. I have to say, I’m LOVING these teeny nails!
Have you ever shaped your nails into almonds or stilettos?
What did you think, would you do it again?
Do you prefer short or long nails?
