Nub-nub-NUBBINS! Ft. Different Dimension Inner Goddess & A England Camelot

So I had a nice time in Switzerland. I admit, I wasn’t really looking forward to going, because it’s a work trip that we do every year. It’s kind of a long journey, and there were problems on the train on the way there that meant we arrived over 3 hours late, but we had a giggle and we were really well received (as we usually are). And I had the opportunity to pack my bag full of chocolate before we got back. So overall, it was fun, but exhausting! Sorry for my radio silence since, I didn’t expect to be so worn out.

Unfortunately, I had to leave very early on Monday morning (my bus left at 6.20am), and literally 5 minutes before leaving, I totally snapped all the free edge of my right index finger 😦 but I’ve had some encouragement since (thanks especially to Vic!) and finally feel ready to get back to the blogging rhythm!

This first mani absolutely had to be black. As a kind of sign of mourning for my long nails (yes, I realise how melodramatic I’m being! bear with me). Of course, I used my favourite black, Camelot by A England. But when I saw the all-black nubbins, they looked so tiny, so severe, so… well, manly… that I couldn’t take it. I had to do something to make my hands look more feminine again! Inner Goddess by Different Dimension just felt right. So, my fingers still look wrong (to me, at least), and the ends of my fingers are still really sensitive; but here they are, the nubbins!

Inner Goddess is definitely one of those polishes that looks incredible over black! It’s certainly softened the blow for me…

So, love them or hate them, I’ll have to wait until they grow out. But in the meantime, I’ll be playing around with gel to try to extend them a little, I think… Watch this space!

    Pretty combination! Looks so sparkly!

  4. That is a great length on you! And a great mani as well!

    I like the nubbins! You have long enough nail beds that they still look elegant. Really long nails just look so impractical all the time!

    I saw the email in my inbox entitled nub nub nubbins and I’m like uh oh, which one of my girls lost their length? Can’t believe it’s you since Brijit is synonymous with long nails! But, they still look totally gorgeous. And on the bright side, you will never need to use your teeth again to get your bank card out of the ATM machine lololol.
    You must try stamping next! It’s so much easier on shorter nails.
    MUAH! xoxox

    Moi je les trouve longs tes ongles =)
    les miens (de la main droite) sont hypra courts ^^
    J’aime beaucoup ce genre de top coat ♥ c’est beauuuu !

    • Tu les trouves toujours longues? lol! En fait mon ‘nail bed’ (la partie rose) est assez long – donc j’ai très très peu de bord libre là 😦 Je vais devoir faire un top coat comme cela pour la boutique 🙂

    Aaaww you’re welcome honey! And I looovveee them! Seriously you don’t look bad at all with nubbins. They’re so pretty, Brij! You have long nail beds after all 😀 Can’t wait to see some nail art on them!

  9. You can pull off short nails well! I curse my own perma-nubs, but yours look great at both lengths 🙂

  10. Julie says:

    Gorgeous colors! Your nails look beautiful; your hands could never look manly IMO!

  11. Oh wow, SO different. But still beautiful!
    Ha, black, short nails are actually my ABSOLUTE favourite ; ) But I like how you made these into galaxies sorta!
