Beauty Swellness: My Comme des Garcons manicure for the Philadelphia Marathon

November 11, 2013


Nail-job craving: I’ve been wanting a Comme des Garcons manicure for awhile now, and I figured the Philadelphia Marathon would be a good place for it, with the hearts and Philly being the City of Brotherly Love and all.

How I satisfied that craving: Leeanne Colley of Tips Nail Bar just ran with my Comme des Garcons theme. “Just have a  nap,” she told me as she started on my nails. She used CND Shellac in Cream Puff, Black Pool and Wildfire. And the manicure “only” took about two hours (and that includes half an hour for removing my superhero Booyah mani), so relatively short compared to my typical marathon manicures.

“I bet you never thought once we started these ‘marathon manicures’ we’d be doing so many of them,” I joked to Leeanne (this is my fifth marathon, and this is the first time I’m doing two fulls so close together — eep!).

How this nail art makes me feel: Full of love —  for Leeanne and her fantastic team at Tips, for running, for my friends, for the chance to visit the great city of Philly once again, and of course, for my amazing manicure.

Love it or hate it: See above.
