I filed my nails down so I have “shortish” nails! I keep debating going down to nubs but always settle on this length when they get too long. I can deal with this length since they don’t get caught on things.

So, do you all think that I only own 1 red polish? Because I’m pretty sure that this is like the only red polish that I ever end up using for any art. Sucks too because the bottle is starting to get thick and goopy on me /:

For my nature nails, I decided to try and replicate a Red Dogwood Leaf. More specifically, this leaf (here). I like how the close up of the leaf looks like a pattern and you all know how much I love my patterns. (;

These nails started with my red base followed by the water spotting technique used with my white polish to form the small “veins.” I then freehanded on the yellow and white stems. I don’t know how much these actually look like the leaf or how “nature-y” they are, but I think these are alright. Not something I would probably do again but it was a try.

Thanks for reading guys! And if you could, possibly take the time to leave some kind words for Sam. I’m still behind on reading blogs and just saw her post about taking a break. We all get burnt out sometimes and having supportive friends is always helpful!
