An outfit and a new Shellac manicure
When I tried this dress on in the store I tried it on backwards and was confused why it didn't fit right even in a larger size. Then I noticed it is SUPPOSED to be backwards and oooh look at that it fit great. The buttons are supposed to be in the back and they aren't cut to fit the lady lumps. I still feel a bit Kriss Kross though. I love the dress but it is on the border of my comfort level length wise. I don't know why I get so hung up. It LOOKS fine in photos but it FEELS short wearing it. I have on a slip AND tap shorts because of this fear.
Dress Forever 21
Please pardon my 6 week old pedicure. We haven't had open toe season here yet. I did some extra nail strips on my toes the beginning of April.
For makeup I did a lot of pinks.
Two pink eye shadows from MAC, a burgundy liner from Urban Decay, Rouge Noir mascara from Chanel and DollyMix blush by MAC. Clear gloss on lips.
I got a new Shellac job yesterday. I did Wildfire this time. I did contact them and ask if they were a cruelty free company and they replied that they were. I had waited to do it again until I could answer that question to people who asked. I have a policy where I try to get my nails done in a color or fashion I can't do on my own. So why red? I have such a hard time with red. I can't ever get it nice then it ALWAYS chips in 24 hours no matter what I do. This was 18 hours after I painted them myself.
I find red so beautiful and since I almost never do them red myself red seemed like the natural choice this time. I certainly have never had red nails for two weeks in a row so this should be fun.
Day 1 Shellac
It is $25 dollars here. I get a lot of questions about that. I hear other parts of the country charge significantly more. This might sound weird but don't go to a fancy place. Go to a nice clean not as fancy place. I have the best luck with those places. Fancy manicures NEVER last on me. I don't know why. I have heard many others say the same thing too.
Here is a review of my first experience with Shellac.
