SOB, Cry and Rage... Oh and Floam!

(*^IYWI@^@)%#!(#_!!

  SO mad :(. I have not had a "bad" nail break since I first went to shorty nails. I think back in 2011 was when I decided to go to shorties. So, I had not experienced a "devastating" nail break for over a year. Yesterday, as I was prepping for a swatchathon, I snagged my middle nail on something and it broke in a bad way. I wanted to cry lolol.. If you have been following my recent shenanigans on You Tube you know that I have A LOT of product that needs to be swatched/ and or nail arted with lol. I SO do not need my nails looking like THIS... I know I LOVE me some nubbies.... But this is TOO nubby for me lolol!
..... Ugh.... So I figured, might as well actually enjoy wearing my Floam. I had only gotten to swatch it once, a long time ago. My bottle is pretty "old" and it had thickened up a little bit, this was not an issue though. I just added a few drops of nail polish thinner and shook it really well. The consistency was fine after I thinned it a bit. I used Three easy, thin coats to get my nail fully covered in Floamy bits. I top coated it with Two coats of Cult Nail Wicked Fast. Even though my nails are SUPER short I am still loving the Floam-y goodness!

  Also! Here is another You Tube vid! This one covers the contents of my Ikea Helmers :D


 I will be posting stashed swatches until my nails grow to an acceptable length :(. I really need to/can't wait get into my swatches and nail art again! I totally want get stuff done and then shiz like this keeps happenin lolol!!! In the meantime I will continue to focus on my FAQ video series and taking my vitamins to make sure my nails grow out fast :D!!

  1. Ahhh, I hate that! I was just thinking last night about the "famous" bloggers and what they do if their nail breaks or how they keep them from breaking. Now I see, you have swatches saved up. I need to do that. I always swatch what I am wearing...not good when you have a horrible break:( Good luck!

  3. I too have nubbins on my right hand right now. So, I decided to do a test with the Duri Rejuvacoat...which supposedly helps fix problem nails and helps them grow. I started Monday. I did still have a bit of the nail edge that I could feel, so it wasn't like nail-bitten nails, thank goodness.

    I have a nail art challenge starting in February so I really want my nails to look good for that. Until then, I am being VERY kind to my left hand. LOL! Good luck with your nail regrowth!

  4. Ouch! Breaking a nubbin hurts so much! Your nails still look great though! The angle at which you photograph is super flattering.

  5. I HATE trying to get a nice, neat, square nail shape back after a break so short you have to round it off! Don't you??
    I have always loved how perfect your short nail shape is!

  7. Ah! Sorry about your nail break! If it makes you feel better your nails still look great and you're making me want floam more than I already did!

    I'm totally okay with you posting more videos until your nails grow out. I'm really enjoying what you've been posting!

  10. Arrrgghhh. I think we all know how it feels to break a nail, but its so much worse when it's on your swatching hand! But dont worry, even with your short little nubbins, we will all still love what you show us.

  11. We all get used to a fav. lenght on our nails - but I love this lenght frankly. I wear mine this lenght or a tish longer (but not much) most of the time right now.

  12. I feel your pain. Being a massage therapist for 20 years I never get to have long nails, in fact mine are shorter than yours as any nail can be felt. I like nail polish on my super short stubby nails! Polish makes anything look great. I have begun to detest long nails. Workers envy.

  13. I'm always so sad when I break a nail - ended up giving up and filing them round recently as it was driving me up the wall. I want to put on my FLOAM now! x

  14. Aaugh! So, SO frustrating (I'm growing out from a bad break too), but you always keep your nails in such great shape, I'm sure they'll be back to themselves in no time. And you look fabulous in Floam, shorties and all! ^_^

  15. With gorgeous pics like this, who even notices the nail length?? On the subject of nail breakage, after a year my right pointer still has remnants of the vertical crack I got....

  16. With such lovely pics no one even sees the nail length. Seriously. Speaking of breaks, my right pointer still has remnants of a vertical split I got a year ago....

  17. Bummer! Luckily your nails are short enough that it should grow quickly. I love the length of your nubbins. They are the perfect.

  18. Ouch! Hopefully it will grow out quickly...and in the meantime, your pictures are still just as gorgeous. :)
