manicure

if you know me, you know i *love* my prim nails. i’m almost never without them… i have this obsession with them. i think they add just a li’l touch of extra realism to my hands (which, let’s be honest, the second life avatar hands leave much to be desired) && i really, really like the way they look on. wearing prim nails has become as much of my outfit routine as wearing piercings, tattoos or blonde hair. i never feel *complete* without a pair on.

while my own personal taste in nails tends to lean towards super long, sharp and claw-like… more “normal” sets of nails seem to work best for everyday wear. and since a favorite brand of mine for prim nails, virtual insanity, has come out with several new collections of nails.. i thought it fitting to give myself a manicure here and show ‘em all off. :3

the top row shows off three shorter sets of nails… which are perfect when you want a touch of color on your fingertips && glove-layer nails just aren’t cuttin’ it. these are called netty, fishy && tippy — named for their patterns (fishnet/mesh on the first two and plain nails with brightly colored tips on the last). and since each pair is color change, you really can match them to your outfit… or purposely mis-match ‘em, like i tend to do.

the second row above shows the new fall collection of nails from v/i. these come in shorter versions like the first row, as well as longer (but not *too* long) sets in both square tips and rounded tips. these sets are color-change as well, in a selection of very autumn-appropriate colors ranging from hot pink to golden yellow to the gorgeous teal you see up there (which is one of my fave colors from the set).

these sets are called dita and are available @ perfect wardrobe to go along with the burlesque theme of this round. they’re short, can be worn with or *without* the black tips, and have a fishnet-like pattern across them. i like these a lot — for the versatility of wearing them with or without the black tips — and also for the discounted price you can snag ‘em for.

if you like wearing prim nails as much as i do, the nails from virtual insanity are really very nice. all are color-change, with lots of choices to pick from, and you cannot beat that for the price!
