Wedding Mani/Pedi

Good Morning!

I know I said I'd have this up on Saturday, and I'm sorry that didn't happen. My husband left our camera at work, and there was no time Saturday to run and get it, so I didn't even get pics taken until last night!

Like I said earlier, I had a wedding to go to Saturday. I was the unofficial wedding coordinator. I wore a dress that my sister got me for Christmas. It's a super cute pin-upy (is that a word?) "secretary" dress. The top was black with white polka dots and the bottom was solid black, and I had the perfect shoes for it!
I wanted to accent with red, so I decided on China Glaze "China Rouge" and China Glaze "Ruby Pumps"

China Rouge looks too orangy in the above pic, not sure why. It's definitely a true red.

I started out with 1 coat of "China Rouge" and decided I wanted more depth. So I topped that with 1 coat of "Ruby Pumps" on my nails, and 2 coats on my toes.

I just LOVE these shoes so I decided to add the Polka Dot Bow design from M59 to match. I stamped that just on my big toes and on all fingers with Konad Special Polish on Black. Then using my White Stripe Rite nail art polish, I added the white polka dots. It definitely isn't perfect, but I really enjoyed it!





Odd thing...I LOVE Ruby Pumps, just Love it! And I love Red! But I get tired of red on my nails pretty quick! So needless to say this was all removed last night. I had the intentions of a full konadicure on tips and toes, but only got the base colors on both before I just couldn't do it anymore. 4:45 comes way too early, and it was WAY past my bedtime.
I will add my Konad designs tonight, and have my new current mani and pedi for you tomorrow.

Thanks for Visiting!
Have a Fantastic day!!!
