Deadpool Nails (With Pictorial)

Hello friends! It sure has been a long time since I last posted a full blog post with a pictorial! I've been wanting to do this design for a while now, and after watching the movie with my boyfriend last week (finally), I decided that this would be an appropriate time to do it.  I took a more detailed approach with this design, and I am extremely proud of how this turned out! At first I was afraid of completely messing the design up, but I'm glad I tried and the outcome was better than I expected.
I've been quite busy with school lately, and since I need to type so much I've been keeping my nails short to keep typing comfortable. Some people still may consider my nails to be quite long, but believe it or not, this is pretty much the shortest that my nails can be! I have extremely long hyponychium under most of my nails and cutting very close to them will cause me pain so this is my optimal length. I also decided to try a new nail shape this week, it's a more hexagonal shape & also extremely sharp around the edges. I thought it'd be a fun thing to try. Plus, I've seen similar shapes on other nail artists around the web/social media and I've had quite a lot of nail envy. Some of my edges aren't as straight as I'd want them to be, and the angles are a little bit off but I think this shape suits me quite well. I wonder what the up-keep will be like...

Quick NOTW update: Simple Magenta Florals

Bonjour mes amis! This is just quick update on my nails of the week, I have not been able to find much time to do my nails recently due to an abundance of school work and because I've not been feeling very well (it could be due to the stress from school...sigh). I did this quick floral design a week ago and it's stayed on my nails quite well; it has chipped a little and the edges have been worn down but they'll last me until I do my nails later this week. I actually have a great idea for my next nail design, so stay tuned!
