Well, whaddya know, another wedding-related post. I was going to post this sooner but the old tale was I got caught by so many different excuses :p
Anyway, we were very lucky that we get to hold another wedding reception which was 3 weeks after the D-Day. This time, the guests are our friends! I suppose, call me for being extra. But I did want my nails to look different. Plus, the previous nails were getting long and I wasn’t comfortable with the length.
This was what I decided on.
You can check out the big, big D-Day nails here. For this reception, I didn’t want them to be far off. Still keeping them simple and minimalist. After a quick brainstorming, I decided on this design. Plain, solid base color with a hint of glitter.
Being me wanting to have the comfort and ease, I called Spalosophy to the rescue, again. Besides, I had to remove the previous gel polish too before anything else. And yes, I decided to do these with gel as well. What can I say, they do last and I didn’t want to worry about my nails chipping.
Funny thing, or maybe it’s meant to be, the manicurist that came to do the service was actually Mbak Icha again 😀 I was so excited because I knew she’d do a fantastic job based on the previous (and first) experience.
Let the pictures speak for themselves then.
I actually used the same gorgeous nude color as I did in the first design. It’s called Perfect Match Mi Amour. Then added a sliver of fine gold glitters on the outer nail near the cuticle. Kind of like a crescent!
Sweet, low-key and sophisticated, I adore it!
But, it’s not as easy as you might think. There were a few adjustments needed to be made. The key here was I didn’t want the width of the glitter to be too big. I just want it thin enough to be visible. I think it was about a little under 2 mm in the end. Mbak Icha really took her time with it, making sure every glitter crescent is perfect. I couldn’t have been more ecstatic.
Before you ask, no, I wasn’t sponsored or paid to say good things about Spalosophy. I know about the service thanks to my sister. I’m just a satisfied customer who’s willing to share the experience 🙂
My dear friend Jess took this shot of my nails against the dress (I also wore the same dress). I love the hint of gold glitter peeking through. It really added a touch of something-something without going overboard.
By all means, I can totally redo the same design with a different color. Or do the same with a similar color theme, sure why not! But, I’d do it with regular nail polish though. Gel nails are for special occasions only, LOL!
Overall, I love the understated elegance and this type of design can definitely stand the test of time.
