L.A. Colors Bows & Bling Nail Art Kit

Hello everyone! I hope you're doing great. Yesterday I stumbled upon this cute and inexpensive nail art kit at Wal-Mart. I was quite surprised because I've never seen L.A. Colors there before. I snatched both sets up immediately, then convinced myself to put one back. I settled for the bright colors versus the black/white/pink with silver glitter kit which I also loved.

How I Shaped My Nails into Almond Shape (Baby Stillettos)

Hello everyone! I hope you're enjoying this holiday weekend. I finally have a day off and was excited to play with my nails. You may have noticed I've been trying to grow out my natural nails. I've worn square/squoval for a couple of years now and wanted to switch things up a bit, so I decided to try almond shape nails. I think I first fell in love with almonds when I saw Adele sporting them. Her fingers looked so long and elegant with the extended shape. 

Since my nails are short I couldn't create extremely long almonds (stilettos), so I'm going for the baby stiletto/almond version. Stiletto's are actually more pointy, but you know what I mean. 

Here's a video showing how I went from round to almond nails:

And here are the finished results:

The polish I'm wearing is Klean Color Black. I just painted black over my Chalkboard nails to allow me to shape them better. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. 

I really like this nail shape so far. I'm not sure how long I'll be able to grow out my natural nails with this shape, but it will be fun to see.  

 Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Have a great weekend :)
