Long time no post! I have been incredibly busy and tired and what spare time I do have I like to spend at the dog park with Chloe - she deserves as much play time as she can get!
But, I am getting more and more used to my routine and a little more free time here and there so here I am :)
Lots to talk about - I finally found the perfect foundation (and it's cheap too!) - but for now here's a little review of my current nails courtesy of Gelish soak off polish :)
So basically, since the move abroad my nails just do not grow. I used to have naturally long and strong nails but for the past 3 months they have just been splitting and tearing like never before. I toyed with the idea of getting acrylics again, but I remember the hassle I had once they were removed last time so decided against that (For now!) and tried something new - Harmony's Gelish Soak Off Polish :)
My local salon offers this service with a manicure for $27.00 though I chose not to get the manicure since I keep my hands and nails are in good shape anyway, and prefer not to be attacked with the cuticle snippers! I filed my nails completely down, paid $18 for this gel and chose the color "Pink Smoothie" - no surprises there.
These can apparently last up to 3 weeks, though I plan to remove them at 2. The edges are starting to peel every so slightly, and I have a bad habit of picking at imperfections in my nails, but I will try my best to keep them on for the next week.
