Gel nails? What??

So, I went to get a mani/pedi today and my friend told me to try the gel nails, or shellack nail colors. She said that it took about 5 minutes to dry between coats, 3 coats of color and 1 coat of top coat, and that they would last for two weeks. I had stopped getting manis because my nails would be chipped the next day and poof $20 down the drain. So I am making a record on this blog so I can officially know how long the gel/ shellack nails really last.

Day 1:



Yeah my hands could use some lotion. The orange is much brighter in real life than the photo shows.

Also before the mani pedi I went to get my hair trimmed and the color toned. My amazing stylist Drew just moved to a new location, a 4 seat salon that they own. It is a beautiful space in Chamblee, kind of out of the way for me, but he is more than worth it. Look at this chandelier!

The hot shot waving, is in fact Drew! It I has been a very pampering day for me. Now dinner and drinks to celebrate my friend starting her new job on Monday!

Stay tuned for day two of the gel nail saga!
