Shortly before I took off my Easter week manicure, I jammed my right middle finger into something, I don't even remember what since unfortunately I am not as careful with my hands as I should be an routinely bang them into stuff distractedly while reaching for light switches and railings and such. Anyway, that particular incident broke the tip off that nail, making it noticeably shorter and necessitating me taking length off the other to blend it in. The way that tip broke off made it pretty much square, so instead of resorting to my usual oval/round shape, I went with something closer to squoval, going from this:
Not quite squoval (the tips are still a bit rounded) but definitely nowhere near as oval/round as I'm used to. I rather liked the change; it felt like something fresh for spring (never mind that the day after I did this—while still in Idaho, where Mr. K and I were over Easter—we awoke to several inches of snow with more coming down).
I followed the bunny strips with Sally Hansen Salon Effects in Pink Pong (which I've worn before, so had half a box left), but after a few days got bored with palette cleansing and added accents with Butter London Tart with a Heart and Essie Flowerista. Still quiet but with some interesting bits to look at during meetings at work.
I'm going to keep experimenting with getting closer to squovals, even though my nails seem to want to be more rounded. They'll grow back, after all, so whatever I do, it's not permanent. Do you change up your nail shape or always stick with one that works for you?
