Nails ~ Purple shimmers

I wanted to incorporate three of my favorite finishes into one mani: holo, duochrome, and color-shifting shimmer. I liked the end result, but it was difficult to capture the beauty in pictures.


Although I used a purple at the very end of the tips, it came out looking darker than I wanted.


When I went through my nail art stash, I noticed that I really didn't have too many stickers left from my nail-art-obsessed days. This really needs to change, especially since the holidays are coming up. There is so many things I still have to learn, and there's so much out there to explore. This is what I love about polishing my nails: the possibilities are endless.


I think I wore this mani for a whole week. Regardless of the stickers, I was quite pleased with it. I think some geometric patterns would have looked nicer, something like diamonds or stars.

As a side note, and totally unrelated, I really like this new chapter in my life and my blog. I think I am ok with going a while without posting. Gone are the days where I stressed about "making content". Quality over quantity is my motto.


Especially, because my life has always been so busy with juggling everything. I think I am happy now with my little blog. I write when I can, when I want, without pressure. Last weekend I was decorating for Fall, and I was just enjoying the new season, and thinking about the holidays, etc. Of course, I wanted to do my nails and blog, but I am now living with a focus on prioritization.
