What’s On My Nails Right Now

I haven’t had a nail update in a bit, but here we are! This one is going to be short and sweet—much like my new nail look :)

As you can see I took the nail tips off—they were fun for the weeks that I had them but when two of them broke about a week and a half ago, I just used that as a sign to return back to my natural nails instead of getting them fixed…lol. Acrylic nails can be super damaging on the nails—which I of course knew going in—I just wanted to try something different. Though my nails grew to be almost as long as the tips, I cut them all the way down. No love lost—I always keep my own nails super short—maybe letting them grow in a bit and then I cut them down again. I work with my hands so much that I don’t have time to be worrying about broken nails and all that. So #shortnailsdontcare lol

So because the next two weeks are going to be super busy for me, I decided on getting a gel manicure and chose IBD’s Solar Rays Lacquer. It’s a brilliant yellow neon that like most neons required three coats for opacity. My nail tech was able to do this in a seamless way so it didn’t look like someone practically spilled a bottle of nail color on my fingers. I got an IBD color last time I had gel and was impressed with the performance (it lasted two weeks and didn’t peel like some gels can) so I’m looking forward to this holding up as well.
