Glam interrupted

Hey Kids...Look what I have...Nubbins! I had some serious patches of staining that I could not take anymore. After a bit of grinding, I realized that the staining was too deep and I'd be better off removing them.

Tomorrow, I'm going to create a fresh, new set, but in the meantime, I have the following mani on to protect my frail nails;

2 coats CND Ridge Filler
3 coats China Glaze Dorothy Who?
1 coat Nfu-Oh 51
1 coat Seche
I absolutely LOVE how this looks irl...even though there are waaaaay too many "coats". Nfu-Oh 51 never dried leaving my mani susceptible to major dents and shrinkage. While the dents are unacceptable, 51 is shrinking towards center, leaving Dorothy Who? exposed all around the edges. I think this looks really cool!
I'm definitely going to try this again- but on my long nails!

Ok, how much do I like this manicure?

Enough that I've typed up half a comment, then clicked over to look at the pictures full-size again not once,not twice, but THREE TIMES. And I still can't stop looking, I finally opened them in different tabs!

I cannot get over all the different colors. There's the main blue at the edges, and the purple in the center, but my goodness, there's so much more when you look up close. You've got the whole rainbow kept captive on your fingernails!

Gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous.

Very cute nubbins.  Love the manicure.  I agree with Danielle that it must feel weird without your long nails.  Can't wait to see what you'll come up with.

You have very nicely shaped nubbins. :)

The layering of these polishes reminds me of a mosaic pattern. So pretty and stained-glassy!
