When I was in college, one of my favorite bi-monthly activities was going to get my nails and toes done with Jonathan and Lo at Elegant Nail Spa Waco! I got my first gel manicure ever with Lo who introduced me to the wonders of gel and dip polish and constantly bullied me into having well-kept, colorful nails so she wouldn’t have to look at my horrid natural nails. Jonathan only joined us for the pedicure part, but I still always associate mani/pedis with the two of them. I don’t get mani/pedis anymore aside from the odd times when I’ll go with my mom and/or sister (this was my last salon manicure and it’s my favorite one ever!) and since it’s expensive to have them professionally done, I’m making DIY attempts of my own. I hate painting my nails because I tend to smudge them even though they’ve been drying for hours and they chip fairly quickly. As part of my recent Olive & June manicure system purchase I chose the above featured beige ‘MM’ and sparkly gold ‘Obvi’, which I combined for my perfect winter manicure! I love wearing lots of bold colors from my wardrobe during this time of year, so my winter manicure has to be versatile as possible to match all of my clothes. I’ve resolved that Olive & June’s nail polishes are the best of the best because they last well over one week and don’t chip even when I’m cooking, cleaning dishes, washing my hair, changing my outfit for the 10th time, etc. I love the combination of ‘MM’ and ‘Obvi’ for a slightly more fun neutral look. I painted ‘Obvi’ on my pinky and pointer fingers on my left hand and thumb and ring on my right to add some extra interest. ‘Obvi’ is the most pigmented glitter polish I’ve ever used and I can’t wait to create an even more bold and fun manicure for my birthday and Christmas!
