One being... To keep my fingernails in good shape, polished when possible and tidy and shaped without hideous hangnails or overgrown cuticles, and I have vowed not to go days on end without removing all 10 digis if one starts chipping (guilty)
I started to examine my history/obsession with manis and pedis and polish ...
The earliest manis I could remember were Tinkerbell BO-PO (brush on, peel off!) in sickeningly sweet girly shades, straight from my caboodle none the less:)
Salon manis in my youth were often holiday centric, red or pink with an airbrushed snowman or flower on each ring finger! (I cant believe Im admitting to this)
A long love affair with an air-brushed french manicure & pedicure (which chipped mere moments after leaving the salon) followed
My wonderful mother and I were completely obsessed with Hard Candy (Ive heard they recently launched a line for Walmart!) and we had every shade imaginable! Bright polishes, clever names and the plastic gummy rings!
Who can forget the Chanel Vamp Craze, Im pretty sure we were on a waiting list. At the time it was so drastically different and wearing it now it doesnt even seem that dark!
Second Waiting list involved Chanel Black Satin and every dark polish after never seemed as dark
Classic Reds , Pale Pinks and Linkin Park after dark, with a scattering of semi-greys and beiges in between, have certainly been the staple of my mani/pedi diet over the past few years
But with nails being such an accessory as of late I am obssessing over Glitz and Glam! Deborah Lippman is as of late my absolute must have.... How could these be any more fun??!!
Today Was a Fairytale
Boom Boom Pow
Dressing up jeans and a plain white -t, or adding sparkles to your glammed up gear, I really cant see any ensemble that these would not compliment:)
Hope you are all having a Fab Week!
