    All Lacquered Up

    Last weekend we spent time with my family in Charlotte relaxing and drinking wine on the patio, blowing bubbles with Ariyana,eating out a sushi/burger bar called Cowfish, and meeting up with old and new friends. My sister, sister in law, and I also treated ourselves to gel manicures.

    This weekend will be less eventful as I hope to catch up with a few things around the house, watch a few DVR'd shows and the Oscars, and pack for my work trip to LA next week. I hope you have a lovely and relaxing weekend!

    Relaxing sounds great!!! I love those gel no-chip manicures!!! I haven't had one in a while, but it is so great to have pretty nails for near a month!

    Beautiful nails...I have the worst time keeping my manicures from chipping. I guess when my youngest is driving I'll be able too!! Have a wonderful weekend and I can't wait for the Oscars! xx

    Naina - I would email you but i cant access my work email from home :( Need help .....Any advice on sweater leggings ...I can't seem to put together an outfit for the life of me ....i have dark gray and and another really light gray color of sweater leggings ....But my main goal is to not look like a 16 yr old in them...LOL....if that makes any sense?

    I tried a gel manicure a few weeks ago at Mini-luxe. I liked the instant finish and lasting effects but my nails really paid the price with removing the polish with acetone. Do all places do this? I need to do further research....if you have any suggestions for us weak nailed ladies let me know!

    I can't wait to get together with my family soon for wine an pizza.

    Perfectly polished! I love a dark nail color ;) The other day I saw an awesome deep purple with sparkle, it looked really great. Hip yet still classy. I would have never thought! XO

    I did my nails this weekend! :O)Had a wedding on Saturday and wanted the metallic but couldn't get OPI on short notice, so ended up with a Revlon dark grey/black metallic; love it! :)
