Rainbow Nails

This colorful nail design I copied from http://preposterously.wordpress.com/2010/05/16/nail-deco-of-the-week-72/

It is just so fun and colorful, that I HAD to try it.  I did it in the beginning of June.  My nails were relatively short back then.  They’re a lot longer now.  But what’s great about this design is that you don’t need long nails for it.

I used to always, ALWAYS have short nails.  I would bite my nails to the nub, and finally as I got older and grew out of that habit, I still would never be able to grow out my nails because they were constantly breaking.  And when I started painting my nails, I always saw these amazing designs I wanted to try, but couldn’t, because my nails were really short.

I’ve finally been able to grow out my nails.  Which is awesome.  And I refuse to cut them, unless they become ridiculously long.  But I totally think short nails have a nice, clean look about them, and they’re much more practical.
