My Nails

Though I feel like I’ve been neglecting my blog…. I haven’t really been neglecting my nails.   So… this is just me playing instant catch up. 

Currently:

LaPalm Gel II – “French White” & “Midnight Black”
& silver nail art striper

This is a no-chip design, so I’ll try to get good wear time out of all the time it took to actually paint them.  Smile

And here are some of my recent manicures:

Can I Get A Snowflake??

I feel like it’s snowing everywhere but Chicago.  :-/

Snow would totally make my day right now.  I mean, it’s almost Christmas and I barely have to wear a coat outside.  It’s just ridiculous.

Had to take matters into my own hands. Smile

Breast Cancer Awareness month.

And so…….

This is a no-chip polish design, so hopefully that will curb my urge to change it up so promptly.  I love pink.

I “designed” my left hand, and my super duper wonderful colleague nail technician/educator Lashawn created my right hand design.  I am now in LOVE with foils like the ones on my ring finger (right hand).  Guaranteed to “bling up” a manicure –  INSTANTLY!  It’s hard to resist the shiny stuff Smile. And she does a most incredible French manicure, as evidenced by my sassy pink pinky nail.

Save the tatas!!!!

Happy Birthday!!!

It’s my birthday!!!  Smile  Yayyyyy!!!

happy birthday

So I did my celebratory nails… complete with confetti and a few tiny streamers on accent nails.

IMG_4337  IMG_4341

I used a no-chip gel polish this time!  La Palm Gel II’s –  “Out of My Way” as the base color…

…and my wonderfully beloved polka dots in acrylic paint.  ( I heart dots!! forever).

I have planned a “do NOTHING” day.  Two hour massage from my favorite massage therapist, a triple venti soy caramel macchiato from Starbucks, a cupcake from Sprinkles…. and then kicking up my feet for a pedicure…. then seriously kicking up my feet to just chill.

SmileHappy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me!!! Smile
