New Nubs And A Fun Indie Pairing...

Hello, readers! If you follow me on Instagram (@adventuresinacetone), you may have seen my photo 3-4 weeks ago of a really low split on my pinkie nail...I'm talking WAY below the free edge. I've been patching it every few days with Orly Nail Rescue and this weekend it had finally grown out enough that I could cut it off. Of course I couldn't just have one super short nail, so I chose to nubbinize all of my nails! Thank goodness short nails grow back faster than short hair cuts! So for the next few weeks, we are going to embrace the nubs because nubs can be pretty, too!

Today in the mail, I received my first Cirque polishes! I have been dying over XX each time I would see it on someone's blog and had to order it for myself (along with Ophelia which I'll try out another day). It is such a gorgeous color and shape mix of holo glitters and I love it!! I chose to pair it with another of my favorite indie polishes, Alter Ego Beachcomber!

A simple mani, but I really like it!



Look at that gorgeous shimmer in Beachcomber!


I just die every time I look at this bottle shot.

I used:
Duri Rejuvacote
3 coats of Alter Ego Beachcomber
1 stripe of Cirque XX
Poshe top coat

What do you think of my simple mani? I think it's good for the new short nails.

Here are some helpful links to Alter Ego and Cirque Colors in case you want to get them for yourself:
