Timing, baby!

Just a quick post to say: I did a full set of pink & whites on myself last night with gel topcoat in under an hour and a half. I'm like.... crazy happy my timing is getting perfect. Also timed myself on a pedi tonight and I was right at an hour and 5 minutes. :Db

Tomorrow I'll be volunteering at the Relay For Life booth my school is setting up doing polish. I also just got my May Julep Maven box in the mail and will be posting swatches of Kylie (magnetic) & Ellie (opalescent sheer) hopefully sometime tomorrow.

EDIT: And NOW I remember what I was actually going to post about. One of my biggest nail enhancement pet-peeves? French manicures that don't completely cover the natural smile line. It looks SLOPPY to have one or two bits of natural free edge peeking out from under your tip/acrylic/gel, etc. :/ Saw it under the nail art tag on tumblr and just shuddered.


  1. Heh, that pet peeve is a large part of why it took me so long to try a traditional French manicure on myself. I just didn't trust my own abilities to match it so precisely! Now I've done some French experiments, I think I'm brave enough to give it a go.

    1. It's definitely easier with polish, because you can opaque the base nail easier. I can understand wanting a thin french so maybe that would make the free edge peek, but then I'd want an opaquer base to hide it. Just looks...messy. XD
