I did more of a "half moon reversed chevron mani". LOL. I've seen this look on some blogs and Instagram and really wanted to try it! Most girls use tape to do the triangle at the cuticle area but I honestly couldn't be bothered waiting for my base to dry, so I freehanded it! Up close it's far from perfect but from afar, it looks alright! :) I didn't even notice until I started editing my photos that I smudged the orange polish on my pinky nail! :( It's really not noticable AT ALL in real life! I just looked at my nails up close to try and see the smudge and I honestly can barely see it. I guess the bright lighting I use for my photos just enhances it.
As you may have noticed, I shortened my nails even more. I'm not really sure why. I've just been looking at gorgeous short nails and once I start filing, I can't stop. LOL. I shortened them a little more today so they're a little shorter than yesterday's post. I don't think I'll be going any shorter than this though. I only have about 2mm of free edge on each nail right now so I really can't physically go much shorter without it being super painful. To be honest I don't hate them this short. I didn't like the length of my nails in my previous posts but I don't mind them this length. I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss my long nails though.
