All the Frills: New Nails

I don’t really do too much with my nails aside from the odd coat of polish (and even that’s getting more and more rare – I just can’t seem to find the time). But I’ve always wanted to try something “out there” (for me) so, for my birthday this year, I asked for a gift certificate to get a gel manicure and some nail extensions. And I definitely love the result but will admit that I find the length a bit difficult to work with and the upkeep to be more hassle than it’s worth. But I did enjoy the little vacation from myself!

I love having a manicure, but totally get how there never seems to be enough time in the day. Especially because there is nothing worse than painting your nails only to immediately ruin one! I love the shape of yours, and at least with a gel manicure they will last a bit!

Getting my nails done is one of those things that I indulge in too sporadically for it to really make any difference. Generally, anytime I get them done more than once in a succession, I get annoyed with the additional length and that turns me off having them done again for a few months. I admire your ability to live with nails of this length for any amount of time. While they look beautiful, I don't know how anyone can accomplish anything with them!

I think your nails look beautiful! I prefer shorter nails too, it's easier, but I wish I had more time to paint them! Sometimes just before Christmas I'll treat myself to a mani, but I haven't done that in a couple of years. It's a fun treat to have! :)

Hope that your week is off to a good start :)

I love light nude mani! Longer lengths are definitely new for me, too- and they're tough to get used it! I have mine grown out pretty long right now and have been filing them into a similar almond shape. :)

LOVE the ring C! Your nails look good, I like the shape and color.
Maybe you could get used to just wearing gel nail varnish, they last a while and keep your nails from chipping.
