Teal Tuesdays - Accent Nail

So sadly I had to clip/trim my nails down. Had a huge break in one and one was peeling. First time I've done this this drastic since using Nail Envy. And now they are nubbins! :'(   And you'll see that some are even more nubbin than others, sorry for the unevenness. -cringe- But I don't want to make the others even shorter, so hopefully you don't mind! Anyways, onto the Tealicure!

Waaaa! Nubbins! My pointer and middle fingernails look a ton longer in the picture but it really isn't that bad in person. Sorry!

Today we chose to do an accent nail. Now that I barely have a nail full nail designs totally fit! :) hahaha! I used China Glaze Custom Kicks as my base. There is more shimmer in the bottle than that actually shows on the nail :P. I then used a whole bunch of Kleancolors to stamp with (Metallic Green, Metallic Purple, Metallic Fuschia, and Metallic White). I used Konad plate Q. I promise I did really! I also added Orly Prisma Gloss Silver to add sparkle!

I followed Jennius' Multicoloured Stamping tutorial at Gold Speck Nails. It's really awesome and you should all go read it! :)

Crazy macro of accent nail. See, you can see the candies and shapes and the cupcake from Konad Q1. See, I used it! :) Didn't turn out like I wanted but oh well, at least it's still fun! Maybe? :)

Here is China Glaze Custom Kicks on it's own. Gorgeous teal with "gold shimmer". You can kind of see it on the macro shot...sort of.

Again sorry for the uneven nails!

  1. Nom. Custom Kicks is awesome! & I love the mani ^_^

  2. Don't stress the nubbins. I HATE when I see nail junkies be all hardcore about all-or-nothing where length is concerned. I have VERY weak and brittle nails (always have), and if I were to chop all my nails off every time one broke, I'd never have anything BUT nubbins!

    1. Thank you! It's one of my pet peeves when people get all upset with nail length. If you can't say something nice.... :) hahaha!

  3. Cute mani and cute length also!!

  4. that accent finger is WICKED xxxx

    1. It's all thanks to you! You are awesome, thank you! :)
