Okay so, if you know me, you know I try to keep my nails looking fresh all through the week. I don't go to a salon because I feel like I can do it myself and save the money. (I'm fucking savvy, you know?)
There's just something about having a pretty manicure that makes me feel warm & happy inside. It's like ooooh, girl, get it.
I've been seeing a lot of new nail trends lately on social media outlets. I love that, because I can easily find new inspiration when I want something new. Not sure if anyone really follows celeb gossip anymore, but Kim Kardashian West is trying to sport a new mani "trend" and it makes me want to chop her hands off.
OMG. She's piercing her nails with chains and hoops and shit. How do you grab anything? Can you even use your fingers/hands at all? I'm not a fan.
I did however, buy into the "claw" shaped nail trend. I've been seeing so many photos and thought I'd give them a go. They're just different and kinda grew on me.
The super long ones freak me out, though. They looks like weapons and I'm not sure if I'm comfortable with giving myself that kind of power.
My nails are longer so I shaped and filed them like the ones below.
The outcome? I really love them.
At first, I made the points a bit too sharp and kept stabbing my face. So I filed them just a little to take off that super prominent point.
I feel like my nails are saying, "Don't fuck with me." & I love that. Lol.
Do you keep up with your manicure? Or nail trends? Tell me about them!
