Alrighty posts are going to become scarce from now on. I have a lot of work and not a lot of time anymore. I'll still be here once a week at least though.
So speaking of time let me tell you about how I feel about pedicures. I hate painting my toenails. I hate having naked toenails. I have a dilemma...as in those two don't really mesh well. I've had people tell me, "oh it's fall time! You don't need to paint them anymore." This is the look I give them: o.0
Rain or shine I am barefoot in my home. It's just the way it is. Maybe I'm allergic to shoes...at any rate these toes need to be done 365 days a year. Kelly over at Oh La La Polish started selling Jamberry Nail Shields recently and mentioned the pedicure solution is....nail shields! Now why didn't I think of that...
She also did a giveaway for ncLA nail wraps which I won (*SQUEAL* Thanks again Kelly!) So I can attest to the ncLA ones which have some cool designs but Jamberry has at least twice as many designs and a LOT of seasonal choices. Anyhow here's my pedicure after two days of wear (click for a closer view of the design):
These were super simple to use. I was so intimidated at first and the pleasantly surprised at how easy it was. You can pull the strip back up easily to reposition if it isn't straight (I had to do that about ten times on my big toe). No heat or extra tools. Just put down base coat, apply the shield, press it down firmly and file away the excess at the top. Done. Entire thing took me about 15 minutes including time for the base coat to dry.
In case you are wondering about the packaging:
Jamberry and ncLA for great designs!
