It's Been a While

I just had a look through the pages of The Nailasaurus and it's been nearly a whole month since I posted any stamping nail art. Crazy when you consider that's the only thing I ever posted for at least the first year of its existence.
I love having my nubbins back. Whenever I have long(er) nails, or rather when I haven't trimmed them for a while, there will come a day when I look at them and just think 'You have got to go!' and I just cut them down. When I was a kid, I always thought it would be really awesome to have long nails one day but now that I've been there and done that, I can safely say I prefer them short and square. After a trim, I always paint them black or some other very dark colour and find myself staring at them like they're a new pair of shoes!

  3. I feel the same way about medium nails, it just feels right for me. I'm always in love with whatever you use those studs on!

  8. I always wanted long nails too but recently they started actually growing out and I decided I didn't like them long. :) I cut mine off recently too. It's my first time through this so I cut them a bit short. Oh well :0) They grow back! I haven't gotten into stamping yet but I think I'll try it with the butterfly day coming up next! eek! Love the stamping combined with studs!

  10. I prefer shorter nails as well. Mine won't grow to long anyways. They always peel no matter what I do. I love this stamping combo! I will need to try a similar color combo. I am in love with stamping.

  11. This is beautiful! This might sound really random... But it reminds me of really chic damask wallpaper. Love it!

  12. I love your studs and the stamping :) also the colour combination. Every once in a while I file my nails down,too.
    Funny coincidence: my last post (yesterday evening, in Austria) also has the title "It's been a while".

  15. Very pretty! I think stamping looks better on shorter nails than on long ones which is why I've been reluctant to try it. Your nail length is perfect for nail art though! Kind of make me want to cut mine.

  22. You nubbins are great. I go through the same phases, don't cut them for a while and then just chop them off. Always lean toward the dark colors when I do :)
