Tetris nails + need a couple of tips...


Warning: this will be a long post, so brace yourselves. 

Or skip it.

How is your week going so far? Mine has been *un infierno* ["Hell" sounds way harsher in Spanish, that's why]. I have been wishing it was over since Monday morning, and that makes an awfully long week..!

On to my Tetris nails! I loooove this game. It's actually the one and only game I have ever downloaded on my phone, and that shows some love. Some time ago [my work makes me feel like I live in a loop, so I don't even remember how long ago that happened - One Hundred Years of Solitude (Gabriel García Márquez) anyone?] I felt like wearing something eye catching and fun on my nails. I had to wake up at 5 a.m. the next morning (on a Saturday) so I also needed it to be easy to do, and that's what I came up with.
Recipe: 2 coats of China Glaze Snow + 2 coats of BeYu nº 475 + 2 coats of INM Out the Door + some strategically place studs + one thick coat of INM. In short, a shitload of polish. Long live the fast drying top coat, I say!

If you've been reading me for a while you may (or may not) know that I am co-author of a Criminal Code with Case Laws that's been published in mid-february; it has taken me a lot of time to do my part of the work, which is 10% of 1500 pages entirely written by me. In the next two weeks we'll be having promotional events, in Barcelona and Madrid. We've had a great feedback already, more than I could have ever imagined, coming from huge personalities in the Spanish Criminal Law scene. Now, I need your expertise in the polish field to enlighten me. 

I've had three major breakages this week on both of my hands, so I have nubbinized my beloved claws to a point that makes me feel completely unprotected. Ridiculous as it is, crying is of no use, so let's move on. I have been thinking on what manicure to wear to the Barcelona event next Friday, and my first pick is half moons in red, just as I showed you in THIS post but (way) shorter. Second option is a classic french manicure. Third and last is a V french manicure, like so. Any imput will be highly appreciated :)

I also changed the blog's background. The previous one was supposed to have a paper texture that gave it a pixelled effect IMHO, that I hated. The colors were nice, but as Jin pointed out it wasn't easy to read the entries with them on the back. And I was already starting to get bored of them. So I have taken my time, but I think I have improved the thing. Yay or nay?

I just nead a gorgeous blog title now. Any tips?

  1. Wow, so many things to address! Ok, lets get started:
    Your Tetris mani is SUPER AWESOME!!!!! I don't have the patience for tetris anymore but I used to love it too. I love the way you shaped the pieces, I love the fact that they are all the same color, I love your base and the blue-gold combo. I love EVERYTHING about this mani!!!

    As for the mani for the Barcelona event - I would either do a classic red - plain, or a classic french. Not because I think the event is boring but because I think those two options always look sexy and amazing on nubbins, as short as they may be. Of course the half moons add a sweet twist to the plain red, but I think you'll have to give it a try to make sure it doesn't make your nails look any shorter...

    As for the background - it looks very serious and classy. Much like you :-P
    You need a colorful crazy header and you're good! ;-)
    About that header however... I don't know. I am trying to get one for myself too and so far i'm sorry to say - no luck :-(

  2. Your Tetris mani is so cool! You did a great job and I love the colors you chose! Hehe I like the game myself. I used to play it a lot more as a kid, but I still play it occasionally now-a-days. :-)

    Aww sorry to hear about the breakage. >< I think all three choices you described sound good for the events. For me, when my nails are short (which they are every week after I file them down... ah, the relief!) I love putting on a bright color. So I vote for the red half-moon or even just plain red nails. :-)

    About the background, I like this one sooo much! It's mellow, but still interesting. Your older one was a little harder to read the text on. :P

  3. Definitely love this tetris manicure! I love the blue, I love how good it looks on you, I love the studs too! I feel I could just spend the day staring at your nails! ;)

    So sorry to hear about the nubs! I've been loving the lengths of your nails! I would suggest the Deep-V french manicure. I think it'd look great on nubbins. Haha, and gives an illusion of elongated nails. A pop of colour paired with black would look really eye-catching while still remaining stylish!

    Erm, pity. I have no useful input for the header. Haha, mine is pretty much at default and I kinda like it that way for the time being. Would you happen to have a specific theme you would like to follow? Well, I thought something along the theme of Sherlock Holmes would be fun and nice. Probably using the font that is similar to the movie's credits. Inkish, Handwritten sorts. hahaha!

  4. Hola Mati! Me encanta tu nuevo fondo esta lindisimo y súper elegante. Tu mani de tetris: genial!
    Yo te sugeriría el manicure francés en V porque he notado que hace q se vean más larguitas las uñas pero cualquier opción que nombras es buena también.
    He visto lindos diseños de encabezados es The cutest blog on the block. A mi tmb ya me esta aburriendo mi diseño, quizá lo cambie pronto ;)

  5. Tetris nubbins - sorry about the breaking nails, that's so annoying.
    I love the tetris idea, it's so cool!

  6. Gorgeous manicure!! I did a tetris manicure this week too, but mine was much more colourful. Sorry about your short nails, but I have always loved short red nails, so I vote for half moons in red. Hope you have a great succes with those meetings ;) XO

  7. I love your Tetris mani! So cute! Also, congratulations on getting published! How awesome is it to see your hard work in print? :D

    As for your nails, I would go with something clean that doesn't show chips or wear. With all the promotional events and whatnot your nails will probably be pretty low on your list of priorities! An 'American French' (similar to a French but with a sheer neutral applied over the finished French so it softens the look a bit) might do the trick, or simply a soft, clean 'bare but better' color like OPI Bubble Bath.

    Congratulations once again!

  8. wow, lovely blog!

    i have a new post on how to make clover cupcakes
    what do you think?


  9. Hi! I love your Tetris nails, I loved that game when I was a kid!

    Also, I like the grey background, it's really lovely.

  10. However, people do use Human Growth Hormone for muscle growth
    and that gives it a bad name. If prescribed by a Hormone Replacement Therapy clinic, such as Kingsberg Medical,
    they are even more effective because the treatment is more
    suited to you and your needs. HGH supplements are making it possible for adults to increase
    their HGH levels and reap both the anti-aging benefits and enjoy increased muscle mass along with decreased body fat.
