Pretty Ring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m usually a fake nails kinda girl, but I hate keeping up with them so I tried shellac & I love it. 90% of my job is typing and I suck at typing with fake nails! I found this idea on pinterest! It took the lady 700 times to get the “chevron” down. Lol

@angelinthesnowxo:  let me be clear about my comment i love your ring it is beautiful emerald cuts are my favorite and i love to see rings with pretty manis (i’m a hairstylist so these two go hand in hand – i drive my husband crazy because i polish my nails about every three days because i want to show my ring off)

@angelinthesnowxo:  beautiful ring! and mani. I started getting mani/pedis consistently in 2007, now I can’t live without them and I see no reason to ever do my nails myself again! So relaxing, comes out 1000x better than I can do it and I get the shellac/gel mani which lasts for 3 weeks without chipping/smudging (coming from someone who can’t make it to the car without ruining a mani).

here are a couple of mine (old pics, none current) I usually like the pink in summer and red in winter 🙂 right now I have a French mani that has “Romantique” base, pinker than this one.

If you like the colors, the red is shellac CND Red Baroness, the pink is Tutti Fruitti–getting it this week, sign of Spring!!!  Pics don’t do it justice, it’s really vibrant and gorgeous with a little sparkle.

@angelinthesnowxo:  thanks 🙂 

yes, 14-21 days is awesome, I am so hard on my nails (as you can see, my nails are pretty short).

Congrats on the mani- looks great! I’ve had gel or acrylic nails since I was about 20- kind of $$, but I love how they look and it’s fun gabbing with my nail tech.

@angelinthesnowxo: Thank you!  i actually get UV gel extensions put on as I bite my nails.  I just make sure that any fake nails are as short as they can make them so they look more natural(and it makes typing easier when shorter).
