Something old, something new... it isn't borrowed and it isn't blue!

Hi loves! Surprise surprise (though if you follow me on Instagram you already know) - I changed my nail shape! It had been in my head for weeks and when I snapped a corner on my middle finger nail, it felt like the right time to try and shape them rounded/almond. They are still a work in progress and I aim to shape them like this in the end, but I don't want to take off too much length so I file them bit by bit :-).

My new shape did inspire me to wear one of the most beautiful shades in my stash again. Seriously, this shade is just perfection for every occasion! It's China Glaze Ruby Pumps and an iconic shade. The jelly red base has the right amount of pigment and it's packed with small glitter making it appear like you have jewels on your nails. The formula is good too, 3 thin coats are all you need and it applies smooth and easy.

While I do like the new shape of my nails, but it does take some practice photographing them properly. It feels weird lol!

  9. I absolutely love it. I'm shaping my nails like this since always and I don't want to change it. It's also awesome to see it on a blog since pretty much every blogger has squarish nails

  10. I LOVE your new nail shape! It looks so fierce and delicate at the same time. I don't think I could ever pull off almond nails but they really do look gorgeous on you <3
