Oh and I picked up a few mini Cover Girl shimmer colors-to wear special occasions-they are kind of dark. I spent so much time in the cosmetic aisle checking out new m/u and skin care the young SA was giving me the side eye.  :eek:

My DS is going to get married one of these days and I've already decided to splurge on a gel mani for the occasion. I'm actually going to have it done a few days in advance so that my nails look pretty for the groom's dinner, too.

I've never had a gel mani, just regular and acrylic. The acrylic made a mess of my nails but I removed it myself and didn't know what I was doing. I will be much more informed and careful about removing the gel.

  I rarely wear anything more than clear nail polish, and that's not often.
Today I went for my second manicure EVER! They had hundreds of Esse brand polish to choose from
and I chose red.
   I can't stop looking at my nails! They look wonderful- so glossy, like the exterior of a new sports car, lol.
For a measly $10 bucks and $5 tip and 30 minutes I feel willing to upkeep them.

Thats great Chataround! 

Sigh bought two more shades. I tried my first Essie polish yesterday, a nice summery coral. Sunday Funday.  I usually pass Essie by, since most of their shades look too light to my eye.

Little backstory:

The only one left in the store (Ulta) and the SA at first refused to sell to me because she said the price was coming up as .01? I was also informed that it was discontinued '' (So what do they do with their discontinued stuff?)  But it s the only one I want.'' It was the only shade of pink - slight orange coral I wanted in that store. I offered to pay full price, so she rang it up and now the proud owner of the last Sunday Funday at my local Ulta. :P
