Good morning my fellow Lacquered Lovers! I have such a treat for you this morning! But first, a little back story.
For as long as I can remember, my mom has been getting her nails done. I remember being really little, about 4 or 5, and this amazing woman Maggie would bring her caboodle to our house, filled with nail polish, to do my moms nails. I remember sitting at the kitchen table just looking at all of them! There was only one rule, NO ORANGE! I have no idea why but Maggie HATED orange nail polish! Luckily my mom was more of a pink or red kind of lady. I always loved it because for special events, she would get nail art! My favorite was when my parents would go to Atlantic City for the weekend with their friends, my mom would get cards, champagne bottles, all sorts of fun stuff!
However my mom stopped doing the crazy nail art many years ago and now, for the most part, she's a french manicure kind of lady (although she does take my suggestions for pedicures and even has OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys on her toes right now!) So, here is what my mom's fingers look like in 2011 with an LCN gel manicure and air brushed french tips:
Very classy Mom! A french tip is always classic (and matches everything!)
Now, on the fun side, my mom's dear friend Nona (Hi Nona!) has some of the most awesome and crazy nails ever! I've known Nona my entire life, and she's always had nails strictly in gold, silver, purple and blue. It's pretty awesome! She also wears the gel nails but she gets some pretty amazing nail art! Here is her current favorite look:
How amazing are these? And her toes match! I hope I will still be pulling off the gold and silver and blue polishes when I'm a mom!
Now I was a gel manicure girl for over a year, in fact, it's how I stopped biting my nails! I couldn't gnaw through the gels! But I finally kicked the habit and now I stopped getting manicures and do my own for this fabulous blog that you all have made such a great experience! So, here's a little pic of one of my favorite holographic tape manicures (and please excuse the picture, it's before I learned how to not get a shadow with the flash):
So there you have it, Mommicures! I love it! Just goes to show you that no matter what you do in life or what age you are, you can always have fabulous nails! Thanks Mom and Nona for the pictures!
What did you all think of the Mommicures? Are you a mom who loves her Mommicures? Is your mom a Mommicure babe? What are your favorite Mommicures?
