NAILS | Cactus Love #CBBxManiMonday

The last day of August. I cannot believe it! There is something about September that makes me feel like time is speeding up again. I think it's the fact that school starts and then you start seeing Christmas beauty releases. THAT is always what gets me feeling like the year is going to be over so soon, but a part of me wants to just survive it and hope that the rest of the world does too. From now until the end of 2020, we still have a lot of big things on the horizon. We get to see if Trump will still be President, whether COVID will force us to shut down again and whether we will all continue to stand in solidarity with BLM and support BIPOC brands. Now, that I have gone back to work, five days out of the week I am definitely more focused on my job, but I try to have some meditative time at night and on my days off to reacquaint myself with what has been happening outside of my work bubble.

I seem to be stuck in the year of 2015 where all of the nail art I have been wanting to try has come out of that year including these cactus nails by MyDesigns4You! I wanted to end our CBBxManiMonday theme of summer nails with cacti as I have been wanting to give them another go since trying them out last year. I can honestly say that I am looking forward to wearing some dreary fall colours, but I might squeeze in some holo while the sun is out!

These nails were pretty fun and fast to do with the help of dotting tools and a nail art brush and they make me happy when I look at my hands. It's a shame I'm on staycation this week with no one to show these off to in person!
