So, I had a couple of nasty breaks during Christmas. My pinky had torn REALLY low a few weeks ago but I'd managed to patch it up, then it fully came off. Thankfully it had grown enough not to be painful but this is the shortest I've ever had my nails. It feels rather strange not having barely any free edge. You can see them in natural here. Anyway I'm not going to get all sad. This is a fresh start for the new year and my claws will be back with time and for now I'll keep my nubbins pretty :)
I decided to get my stamping plates out seeing as the designs will now fit my full nails! I first of all used Rimmel Lasting Finish in purple pulse. This is 2 coats. It's a beautiful colour, I really love Rimmel's lasting finish collection. I'd say it's just as good as Nails Inc but I found this in the pound shop! Bargain! I was going to directly stamp on this but new years nails need a bit of sparkle! I added one coat of nails inc princes arcade nail jewellery. I can't believe I've never used this on my own nails! It's beautiful, so sparkly!!
I finished off by stamping a new year design from cheeky stamping plate CH9 using Konad black stamping polish & 2 coats of Sally Hansen Super Shine. Even though from afar you can't really tell what the stamping is, it looks pretty cute :)
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas :D
