Yesterday evening, I hosted one of the best parties I have ever attended, and am quite proud! Wonderful food, wonderful wine, wonderful music, and, most of all, wonderful people. I will soon write a post about the party itself (let me tell you, though, it was a hit!), but first, this is how I prepared my nails for the evening.
My outfit was black and creme, and so I wanted to pair it against a nail colour that was bright and fun, but also elegant and classy. I opted for the pastel mint colour “Fiver” by Butter London. Many a compliment did I receive for this choice!
To prepare my nails for the at home mani, I soaked my fingertips in warm water for roughly five minutes so as to soften the cuticles. Once softened, I applied Butter London’s “Melt Away Cuticle Eliminator” to ease the nipping process. I then nipped the nail and applied Aveda’s “Hand Relief” hand creme. Then, after cleaning the nail bed with polish remover to eliminate oils, I polished my nails and topped off the look with OPI’s “Avoplex Cuticle Oil” for a gorgeous and healthy shine.
Also, here is a sneak peak of my bouquet (and colour scheme) for the cocktail party!
