NOTD // Breaking the Habit

I have a super duper bad habit of biting my nails for a long time now and which I am trying to break. That said, I'm not much of a nail polish junkie because my school doesn't allow painted nails and the hassle of having to paint them nicely and then remove them has always put me off.

But after seeing numerous nail swatches and nail art around the World Wide Web, I've become inspired. Thus, in a bid to break my habit AND have pretty nails, I've started painting my nails with my very limited collection of nail polish (: 
My theory is that if my nails look good, I'll be less tempted to bite them - so far, it's working!


This is my attempt at nail art. I don't own any specific tools and am not the best at painting my nails either...

Anyway, I thought that teal and gold go really well together so I made teal my main colour, added gold dots using the ends of a paper clip and accented my ring finger with the same gold colour (:

Not bad for a first attempt I'll say :P


Colours used:

Nail Polish For Better Life : 554
Lilan Vital Nail Lacquer - Gold ( Although the colour is gorgeous, I'm not a big fan of this polish as it is quite streaky :/ )

So far, I've gone a week without biting my nails! Yayyyy! I'm going to keep this up and hopefully stop for good (: Here's to pretty nails (:\
