Valentine's Day Manicure

Hi everyone! Happy Valentine's Day to all of you. Do you have any big plans? Dan has a midterm quite early tomorrow so we don't even have a Skype date planned, but that's fine by me because he flies out to Montreal in less than 24 hours!
As I was doing my nails last night, the tip of one on my middle finger on my swatching hand broke off completely on one side, and I was forced to file my nails down into nubbins. This is the shortest I've had my nails in probably a couple of years. I'm still not used to the length, but I would like to hear what you all think of them!
I wasn't feeling any nail art so I opted for a (not so subtle) ombre manicure topped with OPI's The Man With the Golden Gun topcoat. The colours I used from left to right are OPI My Very First Knockwurst, OPI Pink Friday, OPI If You Moust You Moust, OPI The Thrill of Brazil, and OPI Skyfall.

Look at those tiny nails, you can see my finger tips peeking out! This is so new to me!

I actually have a couple posts queued up for the next week since I don't want to be spending time focusing on my nails and blog while Daniel's here visiting, so you'll see my (longer) nails again, while I get used to these puppies.

  2. this is cute! i love that top coat and i definitely dont mind the shorter nails! it's more of what an average person would have opposed to us nail gurus! Plus my are about this length too because they have to bo for soccer and all the sports things I do :/
