I got my nails done and did one coat of Intimate by Essie. It has a bit of shimmer, but with one coat, it’s very subtle and more just looks shiny.

Even though I love dark drama on the nails (Essie Macks and OPI’s Lincoln Park After Dark are faves), I wanted my ring to be the star on my wedding day so I went with a lighter barely-there color.

And by the way, I’ve also had a manicure in which she buffed my nails like crazy–she spent some serious time doing that and they came out looking WONDERFUL–so healthy and clean. Since it’s unlikely you’ll find someone else to buff them for long enough, you can purchase one of those 4-sided buff thingys and do them youself.

@messybride: I’ve never gotten one… but according to the salon I got a pedicure at last week it is different.  I have also never gotten a gel manicure, so I’m probably not the best person to ask. But I have heard a lot about them and they are supposed to last for 2-3 weeks. I do know that they cure them with a UV light…

Question – would it look funny to put color on the fingers, but a nude/french on the toes? I have purple open toe shoes and think a purple toe would be too much, so thinking about doing a nude toe and then purple or dark pink on my fingers, so it will pop against my white dress. Thoughts?

@messybride: True. I’m extremely pale, but peachy instead of yellow or pink undertones. I’m going to start my nail polish research, stat! 🙂

@messybride: Thanks for the tip – yeah, I think I should try to paint one foot/hand with pink/purple and the other the nude color and try on my dress and shoes to see which matches best. Hahaha, I just need to remember to change it before I go to work the next day!

@LRin2011:I was actually part of the group they were testing Shellac on, and that stuff is AMAZING!!!  Your manicure will last upwards of 2 weeks, and I’ve been planning to have a Shellac manicure on my nails since I started the program.  It won’t chip (unless you break a nail) and will look fresh until it is taken off.  It also strengthens your nails, at least while you’re wearing it, so they’re less likely to chip overall.  It really is just the most incredible stuff, and worth every penny.  As someone who had the pleasure of regular Shellac manicures for almost a year, I cannot recommend it enough!

@MissAdventure: Sweet I’m excited! My sister gave me a giftcard for Christmas last year and I am just getting around to using it.
