This week's mani is a dark one. What can I say? I'm in mourning. Ok, fine...that's a bit dramatic. The truth is, I needed to take the length down a bit as they had gotten so long I could barely unfasten my son's straps to his car seat. So I started filing. I should mention that I hate filing my nails. I always end up taking off too much on one and having to fix the others just to over-file another. It becomes this horrible cycle that continues until I have lost way more length than I intended. That is exactly what happened last night, and I ended up losing 5mm of length when I was aiming for 2mm. Now they feel like nubs, and my fingers look short and fat. Since I tend to do this every time I try to take down the length, I have started defaulting to dark colors when it happens.
The good news is I have the awesome Peace, Love and OPI that I have swatched but haven't actually worn. Of course, even though it's an incredible polish on it's own, I couldn't leave it "plain" so I stamped it. Details below.
Stamping Polish: Mundo de Unas Black
Stamping Image: XL Y from Ali Express
Here's the original swatch picture that captures the shift much better. You can also see why I layered it over a black base this time. (Oh how I miss that length!)
That's all for today. I have a ton of swatches to edit from today, so look for those later in the week. Oh, and I also have 6 polishes from the IBD Just Gel Mad About Mod collection headed my way, so look for those some time next week. I plan to swatch them as soon as they arrive. :)
