4p.m. is what time my niece was coming over so she, Cindy Lou and I could do our nails for our upcoming vacay to the Outer Banks. We all leave on Friday....all 25 of us....in one house....on the beach. I could say a lot more. But I won't. It better be sunny......I digress.....anyway....it was a nice afternoon so we took our party outside. We got the foot bubbler going and the girl chit chat started! I have to explain my favorite nail products. When I was a flight attendant I always said I would love to do nails if I ever had another career. Well...I retired a few years ago and I haven't done it, but I do take pride in my nails and feel that I do a pretty good job. I have to confess that I have been using one color for pretty much the last 12 years or so....Mademoiselle by Essie. I just llllooovvve it! I would get manicures around the country on layovers when I was working and always asked for it. Then I started buying it and carrying it with me so I always had it. It is the PERFECT color in my mind. I sometimes get crazy at the holidays and go red or glittery...but it is pretty much always Mademoiselle. I used to keep a pretty color on my toes...to switch it up a bit....but lately I've been doing Mademoiselle on my toes too! But for the most part I am just an "Essie" girl. I prefer their colors over OPI. Anyway...I have my own pair of Tweezerman nippers for my cuticles. They are crazy!!! I could nip at them every other day!!! I have now idea why they are so out of control....but I always have my Tweezerman's nearby! And THE BEST top coat in my mind is Seche Vite. It goes on like glass and gives your nails an almost epoxy clear coat....definitely worth the splurge!! Oh, and you have to have a good pusher back thing....especially with the crazy cuticles I have!
So....we got busy and even Cubby wanted a little pampering!!! He couldn't resist the bubbler.
And check out these results!!!! This is the best my nails have looked in a long time....I'm thinking because I really didn't do anything or go anywhere for those two weeks when I had my cast on. They almost look fake!
Hey T.F.....it was a fun afternoon....but I MISS our every other Thursdays!!! :(
