Super Nubbins Nail Art

I've been trying to find a manicure that I feel comfortable posting because my nails are SO short and I think I've finally got one! I'm starting to get a little length on my nails so I'm feeling much better about it but I still don't have enough length to get the shape quite right. Anyway, lets get on with the manicure.

This is Lush Lacquer's Fuzzy Peaches. The description given on the Lush Lacquer etsy shop says "Fuzzy Peaches is a beautiful semi-sheer orange base with a mixture of glitter....silver, gold and orange hologram glitter are used throughout in different sizes." Its that and a whole lot more.. this polish is just beautiful! I'm generally not a fan of bar glitter because it curls up and sticks out all over the place but with this I had no problems with that at all. There is no shortage of glitter in this polish and you do not need to fish at all! As far as application goes, it is VERY thick so you need to wipe the brush on the neck of the bottle but other than that, it goes on smooth and even. I used 2 coats and 2 coats of Sally Hansen Double Duty. I've been having shrinking problems with Seche Vite so I am trying my alternatives right now until I can get more length and can start wrapping the tips of my nails without getting polish EVERYWHERE! This morning I used 1 coat of Savina fast drying top coat and so far no shrinkage! I loved this polish plain but I decided I wanted to try some nail art with it. I didn't want to stamp because I didn't want to cover this pretty polish so I decided to do an accent nail leopard print. I used China Glaze Peachy Keen and Finger Paints Black Expressionism with a dotting tool to create the leopard print. I followed up with 1 more coat of Savina.



I love how sparkly Fuzzy Peaches is! Even though it is pretty sheer, I actually like it. If I had more length on my nails there would definitely be VNL but since I don't have a nail line, there's nothing to worry about!! This would be really nice over nude or brown!


  1. There's nothing wrong with nubbins! Sometimes we all have to wear them short for some reason or another. On the bright side, painting nubbins wastes less nail polish! Think of how many more manicures you can get out of every bottle. :)

  2. That is a great way to look at it especially with my indie polishes!

  3. Love this look!!
