LOL.  I thought about getting my nails done before my anniversary trip “just in case”.  However I didn’t and he did end up popping the question.  My plan was to go by a nail shop the next morning before I posted pics on FB but we were too busy.  It was about a month and a half before I finally got my nails done to accent the ring.

Well, the pink nails weren’t lucky, but let’s try gray out for size.  Gray is one of my favorite nail colors, and easily my favorite neutral.

I almost didn’t go into the salon for them today because I’ve been really sick these past few days, but we’re going on an impromptu trip, so it felt like something I may regret if I didn’t just do it.  Here are my very ill hands with their very beautiful nails:

Essie’s Turquoise and Caicos! I did this a few days ago but realized it matched my dress today ☺️

I haven’t been in the habit of doing my nails in YEARS, but my SO asked me several months ago if I could do my nails on occasion, as he likes the way they look. So up until now, I’ve done them here and there. Then on Sat the 6th, he asked me to do them for a performance (we’re in a band together) we had that day at – as luck would have it! – a wedding reception. I did and was considering whether I’d keep them up, then this past Thur, he said he’d like us to “start saving for our honeymoon”! I happily agreed, but am still awaiting an actual proposal, so you BET my nails will stay done now!

They’re all black right now because I wore all black to the wedding and have just been touching them up since then. But I plan to switch up to blue soon, as that’s both of ours’ favorite color.

And I’ve noticed that a number of you have THAT nail painted a different color; I think I’ll do the same – as well as the corresponding finger on the other hand – as a kind of subliminal message, if you will, *lol*.

Since I can’t edit the previous post, I guess I’ll just show the hand since I changed THAT finger to more of a sparkly blue:

 I’m normally a neutral or pink kind of girl, but I’m hoping the red will spice it up enough and bring me some good luck! Should be any week now! Downside is I do my own shellac and I dread trying to maintain it because it takes so much longer doing it on yourself! And I’ve managed to get two cuts on my good hand!

So these are old photos but it’s funny to look back on..

Apparently I wanted some hot pink with my red (husbands fav color)…Seriously, who wears pearls to go to a pumpkin patch?! Apparently the girl who thought an iincognito photographer would be hiding to take our engagement shots! I would have bet $1,000,000 we were getting engaged this night. 

Joke was on me… this was my ratchet hand after I wore acryllics on a trip and ripped them off after returning. I thought we might have gotten engaged on the trip but didn’t think much. Just wanted to look nice. So yeah… nasty nubs! He didn’t want to tell me to get them done or I would have caught on!

haileyblue :  Slightly off-topic, but I’ve been considering investing in a UV lamp etc. so that I can do my gels at home–how much longer do you think it takes than a salon visit? Is it harder than giving yourself a standard mani?

Thank you!
