*yawn* i am soooooo tired. but had to post this before i passed out haha. the great this about short nails is wearing dark vampy colors w/o feeling like elvira mistress of the dark. the bad thing, at least for me, is getting excess polish all over your fingers at the top. this is usually not a problem with longer nails. oh well. i got opi's lincoln park after dark finally, part of their chicago collection, which is a super dark sort of jelly-like (but not) purple almost black. very easy to apply, two coater. i feel very un-summery with these edgey bad boys haha.
