Birthday Nails

For my birthday (which was last week) I decided to treat myself to a new pair of “gel nails”. I rarely get my nails done professionally, and have only previously had one set of acrylic nails ... yes one pair in 23 years you can just imagine my sheer excitement.

I opted for the gel option as opposed to acrylic nails becuase I have read the latter is more damaging to your own nails. Unlike the acrylic technique, with the gel overlay no glue is used only a light coating of gel that is sculpted to your own nails. Although it looks like a very easy technique, it is actually the hardest for a nail technician to perform.

I decided to complete my nails with a French manicured look of which I wasn’t too keen on. After a few days I decided to dip into my nail varnish collection and choose a vibrant pink nail varnish by Barry M to spruce up my nails.

The question is though, which nail do you prefer

1) The classic manicured look
2) The Bright Bold nail, that even Barbie would be proud of.
