Back to Nubs

Hi everyone! In yesterday's post you probably saw a drastic change in my nail shape. Unfortunately a chip of my nail broke off and I have no idea how, so today I have a couple of pictures to show you, to mourn my long nails.
Here are my nails before, you can see the strange diagonal chip on my middle finger. I'm lucky it wasn't a worse break, but it sure was a shame that this happened on my swatching hand. My hands and nails are all greasy because I've been using Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter recently, and I really like it. I must have just applied it in this photo.

Here are my new nubs! I know for some people these are still considered pretty long, but they're shorter than what I'm used to!

What's your go to solution when you break a nail? Do you file the rest down to match? Get a fake tip or a fill?


  1. It all depends on how bad the break/chip is for me. Usually I get cracks in the side of long nails, not chips so I've been lucky! Then I just patch and continue on. If it's a chip that just affects the edge, sometimes I'll try out a new nail shape! Your new nubs are really pretty :)

    1. Thanks! I was considering going out of my comfort zone and filing them to some sort of point or almond shape, since the break on my one finger wasn't too low down, but my boyfriend convinced me against it.

    2. I always file the others down to mach with the rest, it's one of my pet peeves when my nails aren't all the same length. :D

  2. I file down. :) I love your nails even though theyre shorter.. I wish I could get mine to that length!!

  3. I prefer to fill down, but recently I've bought something to fix a broken nail^^
    By the way, I prefer ur nails like this :))
