I’ve decided to let go of the acrylics and go back to my natural nails. I would love to say it’s because of my lifestyle with more natural products and watching what I put in and on my body BUT naw I was just fed up! Lol!
Last week I went to my usual 2 week fill in appointment at my local nail salon close to my house. The appointment went well until the end. I picked out a pretty lilac blue color gel color and my nail tech applied it to my nails. The color was really thin and looked nothing like the swatch I picked out. I politely said I didn’t like it and we found another color to mix and put over it before we put the top coat on to seal it. Hated it even more! I told my nail tech again that I did not like my nails and he asked me can I come back tomorrow because he was very busy. Uh no! ( I was very polite though, didn’t want to be stereotyped, lol.) So in order to take gel polish off of acrylic nails you have to buff or drill the layer off. My nail tech did that but in the process made my fresh fill in thinner, which I didn’t notice until I left the salon. I don’t like my nails too thin when I wear them long because they can break easy at work. He then applied a pretty hot pink color that I was ok with until I really saw the lazy paint job after I left. And that made me fed up!
Fast forward to this past Saturday when I went to another nail salon close to my job to get it fixed. I almost got a fill in to have them fix it but I decided to soak all that mess off and just rock my natural nails. I got a manicure and put on a pretty orange gel color by Gelish called Tiger Blossom. I forgot how much I really enjoyed my natural nails! They’re a little tender but with my favorite NailTek nail strengthener, I’ll be back to thick healthy nails in no time!
LIVE it, LOVE it, BE it… BEAUTY!
