I recently read on one of my go-to beauty blogs, Birchbox, that nude nails with a pop of neon color on just one nail on each hand is currently considered to be tres chic. As a neon-lover -- always have been, always will be -- I thought this look was quite appealing. If I could, I would only wear neon pink. Everywhere. And stripes. I love stripes.
I brought with me two Deborah Lipmann nail polishes in Naked and Lara's Theme:
I like her stuff. She always makes fun colors. And I think that these nail polishes are supposed to help my nails heal, which I am all about. This summer will be the summer of nail-healing. I hope that when this polish comes off, they're a little stronger. I've been addicted to gel manicures for some time now, and I finally had to stop because they destroyed my nails. I mean destroyed them. They're thin and weak and brittle and they never used to be that way!
While I liked the results of this manicure, I'm not sure I'll do it again. The nude didn't really look like much so it just appears that I have one orange nail on each hand and it seems sort of weird (like me!). I think that next time I'll go Naked with a layer of gold sparkles on top. It sounds classy, right?
Do you know how hard it is to take a picture of your own hand? It's really hard! This is what happens when I'm alone. I go out and get weird manicures and then try to take pictures of myself holding empty bowls. I should never be left alone.
What's your favorite manicure trend right now? What's the color you paint your nails that always makes you feel more glamorous? Do you paint your own nails or go to the salon? And have you tried the gel mani yet? They're so good, but so bad.
