Day 4 of Short Nails

I'm having nail polish attention deficit disorder (NPADD) - well not really, I wouldn't want to make light of something like ADD for real, but I am having a problem.  Nothing looks right!

I've tried several, including colors that are DARK, which I've never liked on short nails. Still not sure I like them.

Here are a few of the things I've tried so far.  Since I haven't left most of them on for more than a few hours, I didn't do clean up. And add to that the fact that I tend to do more deep cleaning when I have short nails, putting my hands into solvents, etc.  Makes for some pretty rough-looking hands! (But my house is much cleaner!)

NYC Skin Tight Denim

Nfu-Oh 64

Butter London All Hail the Queen

Essie Sole Mate

Essence Movie Star
Borghese Euro Green

Finger Paints Holly-Wood Frame

Chanel Graphite

*sigh* And after today with the smelly Scented Revlon Passion Fruit that gave me a headache, I just went back to the Nfu-Oh 64 and called it a day.


  1. I go through periods Of NPADD too, lol.

    You know what doesn't help the situation?! Reading nail blogs. Call it NPADD or inspiration, but sometimes it just feels right to change it. :D

  2. So true! It sure felt right to change yesterday to get that scented stuff OFF! =)

  3. I was about to say the #64 was my favorite out of all of them. And I agree with the comment about blogs influencing multiple polish changings. It's like nailspiration.

  4. I think all of them look good!

  5. "Nailspiration!" Love it! LOL!

  6. Thanks Stacie! I'm just not used to them being that short. But they grow fast. They've already grown past my finger tip just since the other day.

  7. The dark colour looks fanTAStic on you! Very chic.

  8. The #64 was lovely, but the Essie looked really good too as did the Graphite.
