Well, the wedding has come and gone. My baby is married. We worked on nail ideas earlier this summer and this is what she decided on.
I am sharing two nails from the wedding. The
first is Rachelle's, the bride. And I am proud to say she did them
herself. I can't show you the polishes because, although mine, they
are at their apartment and they are in the Dominican Republic for their
But I can tell you
what she used. On four fingers she has used Priti NYC's Empress Tree.
The accent nail is Spa Ritual's Heliotrope (now discontinued). I will have to admit, I am
not sure what she did the stamping in. But the stamping plate is Konad
The pearls are found on Ebay. They are shipped from China but they only took two weeks to get here.
And Now To My Nails
I had already worn Koco's Open Mica Night and Butter London's Lillibeth's Jubilee together earlier this summer and talked about them together HERE.
also mentioned that had some self adhesive rhinestones that I had
picked up a while back at all places, Hancock Fabrics.
Well, I finally wore them. And personally I think they were an 85% fail.
They looked good for about 15% of the day. They at least hung in there for
the wedding service. But during the reception, they started having problems
(like parts falling off). I finally got frustrated and just pealed the
darn things off!
But the next day, I had fun with the base and will talk about that in my next regular post. It is an idea I had been thinking about for a while.
My oldest daughter, Michelle, wore a single coat of Zoya's Payton. She was working on making her dress until the last moment, so even that she had polish on was amazing!
Day Before-Decorating For The Reception And Wedding Rehearsal
The Friday before the wedding was a work day for all
of us. There was the reception to decorate for and then later, the
wedding reception. Of course, the rental people were two hours late and
some of the stuff was wrong and that took a trip across town to correct.
These are the nails I had on for that day. This is not a design but some dry brush technique. After a base of Orly's Pink Waterfall, I did a dry brush technique using Salon Perfect's Pocket Full Of A Posies. It is finished off with a top coat of Lynnderella's Love, Lace and Lilacs.
And here is the line-up. I haven't done this for awhile.
The polish is in front of one of the eighty tissue paper pom-poms that I
made for the ceiling of the reception. I made sure every young lady
went home with at least two for their room.
Well, that's it for this time. Until the next, Take care................Terri.
