Ice Cream Nails

Phew, I can't tell you how pleased I was to get down to the nail salon this week. I had three broken nails and needless to say I was so embarrassed when the technician looked at my nails, they were horrendous!

Luckily, my nails are all better, they're back to normal, panic over. This time I decided to go back to square nails, even though I loved them being pointed I fancied some sort of change. Another quite big change for me in the nail department is the length, they are very very short! After the breakages from my last set I opted for shorter nails as I've been in such pain with all the broken nails. 
I'm not 100% used to these short, square nails again yet but that'll come with time.


One thing I am definitely used to and completely in love with is the colour. I've been loving baby blues, mint greens and pale pinks recently (they're so girly and cute) and my nails suit this small candy colour obsession perfectly. I feel like I've been waiting all winter to start wearing light shades on my nails again and this gorgeous ice cream hue is Beach Party by Essie. In the high summer I usually go for neon colours on my nails, so more subtle (but still stunning) colours are perfect for the spring and early summer.

What colour are your nails sporting at the moment?

Lots of love,
xXx

  8. I love this colour, it's nice and subtle. I usually wear pastel colours or just plain clear nail polish. Boring, I know haha.
