My Nails are Ultra Short Now

I haven't had my nails this short in a long time. But this is what happens when I neglect my hands. With my dad going to the hospital and me flying home at the last minute, I didn't take my vitamins for almost a week. I didn't lotion up like I normally do and I didn't have any cuticle treatments with me. I packed quickly without much concern for my hands at all. While in MA I tore 2 nails. I think my nails just got so dry, they couldn't bend or flex like they normally should. I patched them up but when I got home I decided to just cut them all. I just wasn't in the mood to maintain them. Here are my new super short  nails.
Instantly I regretted cutting my nails. But I figure they grow back so it really isn't that bad. I gave myself a proper manicure today and put on a light color. In upcoming posts you will notice my nails at various lengths. I had already swatched some colors I haven't posted yet. But for the most part, you will all be following the growth of my nails. 

After giving myself a proper manicure, I put on a color from Chi Nail Lacquer. I grabbed this color on clearance at Ulta. It was the last one they had, and unfortunately the name was ripped off the label. I have no idea what the name of this color is now. I tried looking online with no luck. If you know the name of this color I would love to know!



  1. I hope your Dad is getting better now. Sorry about your nails too, but never mind, nails will grown back in no time. Family is much much more important!

    This CHI polish is gorgeous, btw! :)

  2. Even short they look great! I had to chop mines as well. Hope dad is better!

  3. Sorry to hear about the wear and tear on your nails, but they are cute short and lovely long.
    Your dad is still improving?
    This color is probably the first taupe-ish color I've ever liked. Really pretty, I don't know the name either though.

  4. Sorry about your troubles. I love your nails. That colour is very pretty.

  5. Sorry to hear about your dad. Hope he is feeling better now. Neglected nails are better than neglected family members.

    Don't know the color - but I like it!! The short nails look very chic - and they'll be back b4 u know it.

  6. Sorry to hear about your Dad. You are a good daughter seeing after him :)

    Your nails will be back before you know it. I have that Chi polish its from the Galaxy collection 2010...*Love that Milkyway shake*

  7. Thanks for the good thoughts everyone. Dad still seems to be improving. I am a sucky daughter today - I didn't call to see how the dr appt today went. I will call& bug him in the morning. I am assuming since no one called me that is a good thing.

    rmcandlelight - Thanks for the name to the mystery polish! The name is just as awesome as the color!
