Before I became a mom (a lifetime ago) I went to cosmetology school. I worked at an Aveda salon and I loved it. Now when I get the kids in bed I play “Beauty Shop”. I used CND Shellac for this manicure; Rubble and Studio White. I used striping tape on my ring finger to make a nude channel for the amber gems. I think this would work in a variety of colors. Black and white, red and white, black and red, hmm I might need to redo my nails tomorrow.
I make most of my skin products myself. I have cleared my cupboard of sulfates and parabens. I prefer natural and organic and hippy-dippy weirdo stuff, but I don’t like naked nails. I want my nails painted and my hair lightened (or darkened, depending on my mood). People are complex.
