Last weekend was girls’ weekend in Valle Crucis. One of the very girly things we did was give ourselves manicures. Christina bought the Red Carpet Manicure system from Ulta. I bought 2 new colors to try. Gigi went with a deep purple. Christina and I both went with …And the Winner Is, which is a sparkly teal (not sure why it doesn’t look very teal in the picture). The Red Carpet Manicure is supposed to be very similar to the new gel manicures you can get in a salon, like Shellac. I totally forgot to take a picture of my nails on day 1. Or 2- 3 for that matter. But here I have for you day 4. My nails are still super shiny. There is no discernible wear on the tips of my nails. Please keep in mind I painted my own nails after a few cocktails that include the wickedly delicious whipped cream vodka. That stuff is NOT YOUR FRIEND. Sure, it smells delish. It tastes fab. But then you wake up the next day with a furry tongue and nail polish all up in your cuticles yo. Anyway, so far I’m really loving this manicure. My nails feel thick and strong. Besides cuticle oil there’s no upkeep. They just stay shiny and sparkly! This manicure is supposed to last around 2 weeks. Stay tuned for updates!
