A new post on AYBC?! Zoya Dove + Butter London Rosie Lee

OH HELLO THERE! :D I *think* I'm back! For real! Maybe! Haha, anyways, hi! I've missed posting here, but my nails have been a wreck and I just haven't had the oomph to post either, so what can ya do? Well, I'm here now, most of my nails are almost back to normal (my cuticles are still excessively dry) and I have the desire to take photos and post them! I did hack my right thumb up pretty good at work last week though (if you're curious, you can see a photo here) so I'll be doing my best to hide it in my photos, but if you notice an unpainted/gnarly looking portion of nail hanging out, I apologize in advance :)

Today I'd like to share with you a tape manifail I did last night.

I got the idea for this manicure from a photo I saw on Pinterest. I was able to track down the source to, a French nail polish fan's blog. I didn't have Essie Sand Tropez or anything like it, so I chose to use something more neutral than nude for my base, Zoya Dove. It didn't turn out quiet right, the triangles are a little too pointy and my edges smeared a bit, but I'll live :) My right (non-photographing) hand turned out much better.

Hopefully you'll be seeing more from me soon! Thanks for looking :)

P.S. What do you think of the new layout?
