Alana's Nails One

One of the best students in the universe is also the 4-and-1 mani queen. I don't think I've ever all 10 of her nails painted the same color. When we first met, she told me she knew we would get along because of my turquoise nails. Anyway... Alana has been kind enough to send me LOTS of pictures of her nails, and I decided to feature the different manicures at different times.

I decided to start with this one because when I opened the picture on my computer, I literally gasped! KNOW I'm a sucker for animal print...

Thanks, Alana!

I'm Baaaack!

I'm back. For real. I have so many pictures and post ideas it's not even funny. Since it's late and I'm exhausted, I'm going to start with the biggest news first. I finally- no, FINALLY- got a manicure to last a week. The past few manis have been going long and strong. I'm currently typing with a mani from last THURSDAY. The secret for me is getting my nails cut really short. I go to a new nail salon (buh-bye, Tanya), and they don't try to guilt me when I tell them to cut my nails down. The result is a long-lasting, pretty mani.

I was reuniting with a special someone last weekend, so I decided to wear the nail polish I wore on our first date- Ulta's Eye-Popping Poppy. I wanted to do something different, a first-date remix if you will, so I had the manicurist put a sparkly clear coat on my ring finger. The polishes are both red-orange, but I don't think it's showing up as well with my janky camera. These pictures were taken on day 8 of the manicure. Yes, the pointer finger on the right hand is chipped, but overall, it held up well.

I have lots of other stuff to post about (student nails, an orly plastics review, wedding nails), so keep checking back!
