I've been working myself hard these past few months, and I never have proper time for self maintenance; such as keeping up on my mani/pedi.
I used to never get my nails done, why pay when you can do it yourself? Now, I work hard enough to be able to treat myself to such a self indulgent luxury once in a while. And since I left work at a decent time today, I took my aching feet straight to the nice place in my 'hood (they also give great massages, and yes I went for the 10min massage too)
Now, I assure you I do not go the classy route with acrylic tips (or whatever you fancy ladies get), french manicures, etc. Oh no no, I like to take the "street cred" route, and I feel exceptionally proud of my choices when the brooklyn girls with long-ass nails and crazy artwork give me props.
Today I was tempted by the brand new bottle the nail girl put out as I surveyed their offerings. And the deal was done.

Once it starts to chip, I've got big plans to use my silver polish pen and give myself a blue/silver french manicure.
Now that's what I call cl-ASS!
Funny how I tend to choose simple kinda classic-like pieces for the weekday outfits isn't it? The nails and the threads just don't match-then again that's the way I like it.
No worries, I know my polish choice will compliment my weekend get-up just fine....as we've seen, that's when I get a little more adventurous with my clothing choices.
