I think my nails were the longest in the Summer 2010:
(Revlon Star layered over ChG Grape Pop)
I never realized how long my nails were then! I think this a nice length, but overtime I realized this wasn't really a length I was comfortable with. I'm terrible at shaping my nails, and having long nails that's something you need to be more conscientious of. I'm still in shock looking at this how long my nails were! I
In 2011 I downsized to this...
This was considerably shorter than the year before, and definitely more my speed. I think this is the length I've pretty much stuck with since. There are times I'd go teensy bit longer, and times I'd go shorter.
My most recent nail length as of last week
(Sinful Colors Forget Now)
I think this my absolute favorite length. I wouldn't go any shorter than this, but I'd be comfortable going a just a hair longer (no longer than the Zoya Tamsen photo). I'd guess this would be just a touch passed the finger tip length. I just find my nails so much easier to manage, and look so much better on me short. My nails grow ridiculously fast though, so I'm having to file them down at least once a week or they grow like weeds. I know this is a problem many people wish they could have, but I'd rather not have it!
All in all, shorties on me is how I like to roll! I'm not saying that's how everyone should be at all, because I follow blogs with so many varying nail lengths and shapes. This is just what works for me!
What nail length do you like best or find suits you best?
