NAILS | Stitches and Jack o' Lanterns #CBBxManiMonday

It has been a very busy week preparing for inventory at my day job which has led to some broken nails as even in the world of luxury sales, there is still a fair amount of heavy lifting! I broke the corner of my pointer finger and then managed to poke myself on the same finger so now there is a blood spot there which you can see in these photos since my nails are shorter now. I had different nail art plans involving longer nails as my canvas, but luckily there is no shortage of nail art designs for short nails!

I saw this stitches and Jack o' Lanterns Instagram post and figured it would be perfect for the amount of surface area I now had to play with and I am pleased with how it turned out! I have been pouring over Halloween designs to try and over the last 10 years, I have tried A LOT Of them so I think I will be recycling a couple of designs or playing mix and match because I am running out of ideas! 

I recently went through my CND polishes and did a bit of a clean out, saved some perfect nudes for manicures like this one! "Uncovered" is fully opaque in 3 thin coats and a shade I would recommend for French manicures or providing an evenly covered canvas for nail art without a coloured base.
