So I did a thing: I chopped the claws. It was kind of an impulse & I just felt like I wanted a change. I may very well regret it soon, but you know what? Nails grow! And I’m really loving these shorties right now

Used in this mani:

OPI - Flip Flops & Crop Tops

Sinful Colors - Snow Me White

Essie - Sugar Daddy

HK Girl Topcoat

Straight vinyls from @Twinkled_T

Rose Petals stencils from @whatsupnails

My First attempt application of the “tortoise shell effect” tutorial by Jasmine Oshima.
