Tipped nubbins? Why not!

This was my first time attempting colored tips. I know these sort of manis are usually done on longer nails, but I think it came out pretty cute so I thought I'd share it. Since it has been dark for hours now and my light box is shut in a room with a sleeping baby, the lighting for these pictures isn't the best. Sorry!

What do you think? Are colored tips best left for longer nails?


  1. Cute, I think if it's not to crazy, tips can be done on nubs.

  2. cute! my only concern is that from a distance that color might make them look dirty, I'd go with something more colorful next time, but it looks really really good

  3. @Manicure Addict - In reality it's a really bright silver foil. It looks much darker because of my makeshift lighting. You could be right about how it might look from far away, though. I didn't think about that. Good thing I only did this playing around and it only lasted about 10 minutes on my nails before I took it off, so nobody will see it anyway.

    I'm glad you guys like it! :)
