I hadn’t had my nails done in maybe three years! So on a short work day, me and Mom went for it. It was a super rainy day and i was in the mood to chill out and afterwards we got Dunkin doughnuts!
I hate to sit still, and I never let anybody touch my feet, but it was nice to smell the strong aroma that’s so commonly associated with being pampered, nail polish of course. The chemicals are mighty but it’s a nice scent every now and again. A certain feminine quality to the fragrance, maybe because no men are ever present in the nail salon unless they work there!
My very dear friend and fellow cosmetologist, Rita, sat down with me to service me to a nice mannicure and polish session. These are OPI colors, but because they have such odd names, I cannot for the life of me remember what these were labeled. I’m sure with a little help from google I could find out , but it’s not that crucial! The accent nail was all my idea, I thought it would make the teal color pop and it added for a quirky touch as well. Tell me what you think!!!!
I try to polish my nails often since doing hair can break nails and stain them. I want them to look as good as possible. I might eventually break down and get fake nails again, but until then, I will just stick to regular polish or gel nails. These nails are gel. I think the color was Honey by OPI. Or was it the one called Passion? I can’t remember right off, but those are similar colors. It was one or the other! Comment, like, etc. I will soon post blog entries with images from my new camera!! Hopefully the quality will be good.
I got some new polishes at my school in the last couple of weeks and I finally had time to try them out. Of course I love the consistency of the OPI polishes and they have a ton of colors to choose from. The dark blue is called I saw..U saw.. We saw… Warsaw (Yes they all have funny names) and the silver one is simply titled Silver Shatter. I was hesitant to use the crakcle because other brands haven’t lived up to my standards, however, I was pretty pleased by how this turned out. I’m still not a huge fan of the cracked look, but at least this brand actually works how it advertises. The blue went on first, two coats, and then just one thin coat of silver and you can watch as it cracks! It’s kinda cool. I think I’m better at polishing other peoples’ nails now than my own, but oh well. Lol.
This week my friend Michaelle made my hands pretty again! Because I use my hands a lot at school, I decided to get an acrylic overlay so that my natural nails won’t break so easily. On top of the thin layer of acrylic, I got some nude gel polish called Passion by OPI. They turned out very nice and shiny!! I like that they look natural and will match all my clothes. It will also help my nails grow long and be stronger and better protected against all the hair styles I do everyday.
