The current color of my nails, OPI’s My Private Jet, is quite the story.
Picture it. It’s a sunny Sunday morning in a salon and I happen to spot a few employees with the most fantastic blinged out gold and sparkly nails. They weren’t crazy, long nails, but short and embellished with chunks of gold glitter. I had to know what was going on, and they told me they were Shellac by CND, also known as gel nails.
Not wanting to spend $50 on something that would last only 2 weeks, as fabulous as the nails were, I hopped on over to my local beauty school to see if they could approximate something similar to the blinged out nails for much less.
Um. Yeah. I will stick with hair and facials when I visit the beauty school. I went in for gel nails and ended up with a basic mani with this sparkly shade. I also made a trip to Michael’s and will fill you all in in my quest to acheive perfectly glittery gold nails at a fraction of the salon cost.
