Begrudgingly, I recently had to cut down my nails because they had started to rip. One is fine as I'll just repair it but when it starts happening to a few of them, it's time to go! I like to do like this every now and again because I then can do certain things again like typing with my fingers instead of my nails, for example.
I think most people hate how stumpy they are until you get used to them again but I like to apply a full on print to them. I just think a jazzy pattern takes some of the attention away from shorter nails.
With that in mind I decided to try houndstooth print just as it was something I hadn't previously tried. I think it looks more complicated than it is really.
Here's the tutorial!
