I got the stomach flu.
Yes my friends....vomit for hours.
Two good things came from it tho. Despite missing the event I had been waiting all month for (that I had bought shoes and jewelry and makeup for), I was 3 pounds thinner by the next morning (yes I know it's water...but still a nice ego boost) AND I had already done my nails.....so I have this lovely pic for you.
Holding the necklace I was to wear to the affair *sigh*.
I decided to go contemporary on the classic french and switch it up a bit.
1 coat Gelish Foundation
2 coats Gelish Bashful
I used a striping brush to apply a glitter border using LeChat Perfect Match in Hologram Diamond
Topped it off with Kiss Top Coat
I will tell you that I think I am IN LOVE with the LeChat gel polish. I mean it. Most colors go on on one or two coats. It's applies like a dream. Wears beautifully. Love. And it isn't as thick as some of the other gels out there. Just gorgeous. This is after a week of wear, and I think with a more substantial topcoat it would wear solid 3 weeks. (Kiss lasts maybe a week and a half for me but it's a good hard top coat.) Can't wait to get my hands on more. I'll put some swatches up soon. But for now I have to get ready to take my darling daughter to the ballet in Springfield....and I think I will continue to sport this manicure for it. :)
