The Weekly Nail Report — the Louboutin edition

Nail-job craving: Nine weeks ago, I saw BeautyGeeks Janine Falcon with her Louboutin mani and knew I had to have it right away. Then why the heck did I wait nine weeks to get it then? Because at the time, I had JUST cut my nails as short as they could go — doh! And it took me this long to get my nails to grow long enough for this lil nail job.

How I satisfied that craving: I trekked on over to Tips Nail Bar. In terms of colour combo, Leeanne and I discussed how the best combos are with a big contrast in between the colours. Since I wasn’t keen on having a dark shade underneath my nails (nor on my nail — feels wrong to me since it’s spring now), we went with a pastel blue with the subtlest of glitters on my nails with a subtle empty moon — it’s Artistic Color Gloss in Tease. Then, on the reverse side (the underside of my nail tips), Leeanne applied neon pink China Glaze in Pool Party, followed by a top coat.

How this nail colour make me feel: Like I perhaps need some therapy to help me with my nail obsession, as it’s reaching all sorts of new  levels. How’s that? Well:

  1. I never have my nails this long, so I’m constantly touching the tips.
  2. I usually have my nails in a squoval shape — this oval shape is brand new to me so I can’t stop looking at them (even more than usual). In fact, I think some chick on the subway thought I was some weirdo as I saw her watching my staring at my fingers, ha ha. I totally think my oval nails look like those fake nails they use to show you what a nail polish colour looks like. (And btw in case you want to make your fingers look slimmer, I think this does the trick.)
  3. Now, not only do I have my nail colour to look at lovingly, I just have to turn my hand over and there’s a whole new shade to admire — doubling my nail-admiration time.

Love it or hate it: Love.
