Let’s start with NOTD. Here we have a classic shade by Mavala *Marron Glace*. I had been missing my little Mavala minis and was determined to use one this week or next. What prompted me to fully commit to using this shade was the unfortunate incident of a broken nail (check the middle finger out, waaaaay short). Doing Nail Art with a mix of long and short nails was not on the agenda tonight, so instead I thought ‘keep it simple’, but not boring I hope! 🙂 with this earthy neutral shade.
I feel like I should write an Ode to Mavala seeing as I go on about them so much lol. But with them, I never have to worry – super quick application and beautiful coverage. I suppose you could describe this as a Mushroom shade, but that little extra shimmer livens the whole manicure up.
Now about this broken nail: always attempting to spin a negative into a positive, I will be looking into some unconventional/myth/old-wives-tales remedies to see if we can get this baby to grow back quick. I will not be filing down the rest of my nails to meet the length of the middle one, sorry, can’t bring myself to do it. But I really should have – and will – filed down the index more to match the ring and pinky fingers.
Anyhoo, if you have heard of any of any kooky (but not too crazy!) methods then let me know by comment or the Contact Page and depending on what it is I will try it out and record the progress. If you do know of a crazy method, write it below anyway, it’ll be interesting.
