- I have ugly feet
- I'm a runner, and when I run my polish chips off really easily
- Sheesh, spending 30 minutes hunched over to do nail art on your toes is not only not worth it for me, but it's a pain in my back! Literally!
- Did I mention I have ugly, runner's feet?
Recently, a super-fun girl who I went to high school with messaged me on Facebook and offered to do my toesies with some fun nail art. You know I wasn't about to turn that offer down! I went and visited her at the salon she works at here in Meridian, Idaho called Bermuda Tan. Conveniently enough, it's right by my house. SCORE. (Lyndsey, this means it will be convenient to stop by after work quite often... woo hoo!!!)
I went in expecting to have the OPI Axxium Gel done... but Lynsdey suggested an acrylic overlay instead. I was all about it. It's acrylic that is laid right over your natural nail. That means no crazy tips or long nails. It sounded perfect, especially since my runner's toes are quite distorted (I even have a black one from my most recent half marathon... gross) and she was able to shape them to look nice and pretty.
After looking at her incredible arrangement of colors (she had so many to-die-for glitters), I went with something a little fun and crazy. We picked out a white glitter acrylic and she did a zebra design on top with black acrylic paint and a dotting tool. Shoot... I thought I could do a decent zebra pattern... but she puts me to shame. She sealed the design with 2 coats of OPI Gel top coat and some UV light and I was set to go! Woo-wee!
This is the best my toes have looked in a long time. And not only that, but this will last a whole month. It is also super shiny... I'm just absolutely in love!!!
