Weekly Mani: The Shorties are Back

Hello everyone,

Well, as you can see, I am back to nubbins for a while :(. I broke several nails after dropping a box, most on my photograph hand, naturally. I will be photographing my right hand for now, at least until my nail that broke to quick grows out.  I will admit to not feeling very inspired when my nails are this short so I kept it simple.


I did a couple of coats of IBD Whipped Cream and then stamped with an image from Infinity plate #23 using Sally Hansen Insta Dri Brisk Blue. For the accent nail I placed some silver studs and a pretty blue Swarovski crystal. I’ll try to get over my grief of losing my nails to do a more inspired mani next time :D.



Products used:

Base color: IBD Whipped Cream
Stamping color: Sally Hansen Insta Dri Brisk Blue
Stamp: Infinity plate #23
Studs: 1mm silver round
Crystal: Swarovski

    Kim, where do you purchase your decorative ornaments? I can’t find them where I live. You do such a classy job on your nails. It is very professional which I love.

      Hi Sue, I get my tiny studs from here and Swarovski crystals from here and here.

      I have a Nail Art Resource page for other links here.

    Kim, please do as many manis with your shorties as you can as my nails are a very similar length to yours. Selfish of me I know but i’m sure you will forgive me and your nails will be really long again very soon :-) I love your work and can only dream of one day being as adventurous as you with my nails.

      Thank you very much Suzanne…I will definitely keep up with manis and hopefully come up with something more inspiring.

    I’m going to echo Suzanne! Your nails (now) are about the longest my nails ever get… and I LOVE this mani, btw!!
