Not a single nail chipped or broke! My nails could have lasted longer, I just have nail A.D.D and can’t deal with my nails being that grown out. I was so impressed! I always rave about bio seaweed gel, but I am telling you guys that it is the real deal! I believe that every nail salon should invest in this product because customers love the way it looks and the quality of the product.
It’s 2014! Just like every year I am going to make sure this year is better than the last! Today is the first day of spring semester and I couldn’t be more excited! I am finally getting into my Telecommunication classes. That means I am finally going to be speaking on camera. I also am sideline reporting the girls basketball games for our school sports radio. It is so exciting to finally get some experience, which is also making me excited for the real world.
For Christmas I was home in the FLA and obviously had to visit Boutique nails. My mother, sister, and I all got holiday nails. We all got what Boutique nails is famous for, bio seaweed gel. Lyndsie, my sister, had the best ones I think. Just look at that snow flake! The nail tech did that by hand!
For some reason my nails grow extremely fast and I think it’s because I am so active. The nails pictured below were my nails a week and a half later, the day after Christmas. During that time I was working out, hitting softballs with my dad, playing indoor, and beach volleyball. Those puppies held on strong!
I went back to Boutique the day after Christmas and paid 35 dollars for a new set of bio seaweed gel New Years nails.
If you have not noticed by now I LOVE glitter. I am currently typing with my nails the way they are pictured above. My nails have grown out a lot since I had them done, but I am going to see how long they last. With volleyball starting back up I am interested to see if they will last a month like normal.
Readers! I am very sorry I have not been able to post much in the last month. Volleyball season has started back up. Meaning…I have no life. I’m kidding, I do have a life just not enough time to do my nails. 😦
If you would go to the Lipscomb Volleyball Facebook page and hit like, that would be awesome! We are trying to reach 5,000 likes before our first game August 30th against University of Georgia.
If you were wondering what I have done in the past month let me give you a quick rundown.
My nails were grown out and need to be done. I was bored with the colors so I painted cats on them!
When I got back to Nashville my friend Christian wanted me to paint his nails. I thought he was joking.
Let me tell you…he was not joking!
On tax free weekend I got lucky and bought a pair of Nike running shoes for twenty dollars at the Nike outlet!
Don’t worry I didn’t go out in public!
I can’t remember the names of both colors, but the pink polish is Essie and the sparkle is OPI.
Then, pre-sesaon activities started! Every year we go on a team retreat. This year the seniors chose to go to Deer Run. It was amazing! We zipped lined into a lake and climbed up a 33 foot tree to jump off and ring a bell.
Next, we ran around downtown Nashville taking pictures of ourselves holding up LUV with our hands trying to win a scavenger hunt. Don’t let me forget to tell you the best part, my team won! GO TEAM CAMO!
Then, pre-season practice finally started! If you don’t know what pre-season is, it’s a lot of volleyball practice put into two weeks. After two days we kept track of how many hours we had been in the gym. The total was 18 hours. Like I said before volleyball is my life and I love it!
You could imagine that my nails probably needed to be done after all those practices. Well you were right! I sponged my nails gradient pink and orange. Then, I took a black stripe rite polish and painted a bunch of different designs on each of my nails.
Let’s not forget how bad my feet need a pedicure!
Finally, this past weekend I got to go out with the team! Dressing up and feeling pretty felt amazing! Do you ever have one of those days where you just feel like looking nice?
This past week was amazing! I got to see my family, friends, a lot of baseball/softball and of course I got my nails done!
My sister sent me a picture from Pinertrest telling me to get my nails done like the picture. The lady who did my nails nailed it! 😉 I did bio seaweed gel like I always do when I go home. It never fails, I love my nails!
You can get this look with regular nail polish as well. Use OPIs Mod About You, which is similar to the light pink color on the thumb, index and pinky fingers. For the ring finger, use OPIs Mariah Carey Pink Yet Lavender. Finally for the middle finger apply OPIs Fab-YOU-lous. Completing the diamond shapes on the middle finger with a white stripe-rite brush.
I got to spend a lot of time with my grandma at home, which was a blessing. My grandma was recently diagnosed with cancer and living in Nashville I never see her. When I was with my grandma we went through old pictures. Looking through the old pictures was priceless. I got to see all my mom’s hairstyles.
My favorite is the bottom left picture, where she has pigtails and a plaid shirt on! Priceless!
I also found out why I am such a cool kid now!
It was a jam packed week, but worth every minute. I went to my father’s last high school softball banquet. This was his last season as East Lake’s head softball coach. This coming fall he will be the pitching coach for Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Fla. They are very blessed to have my father! I am being a little biased, but my dad is awesome!
I also got to watch my dads travel team play. They won every game — just saying.
I think we look a lot a like. That’s just me though. My sister is the best! She acts like she will kill you if you mess with the family, but she wont kill you. She will just hit you hard. 😉
Lyndsie wants to get another puppy to keep her company. She knows that I love animals of all kinds, so she invited me to the puppy store. My mom was not happy about this. She figured I would be the one coming home with a dog and not my sister. When my sister walked into the puppy store and first saw the puppies she was worse than me! I wanted to pet all the puppies but, she actually wanted to take all of them home! Who wouldn’t though? Look at these little puppy faces!(“It’s so fluffy!!!!!!!”)
They were adorable! If you are thinking of adopting a dog or cat from a shelter please do! They all would love to be saved and have a cozy home.
Overall my trip was outstanding. It always is when I go home and see the people that I love.
Give your loved ones hugs and kisses. Live your life like it’s everyones last day.
There is a new product that is finally hitting nail salons–Bio Seaweed Gel! As its website states, Bio Seaweed Gel has the nail industry’s fastest and most gentle soak-off. Removal only takes 10 minutes, without dehydrating, weakening or staining natural nails which makes this a healthier choice for your nails.
The picture to the right shows my set of Bio Seaweed Gel nails. I went to a small salon in Trinity, Fla called Boutique Nails, where they are known for Bio Seaweed Gel. I paid $35 for the application process of two colors, but it is only $30 for one color.
I got my nails done over Christmas break and they lasted for a month. I was so impressed about how natural they looked and how strong they were.
The picture to the left is the picture I took after I had the nails on for a month. I still believe they would have lasted longer if I didn’t have spring volleyball, which is the reason for the big chunk missing on my middle finger.
These were probably the best gel nails I ever had. (Compared to regular Gel Shallac) Not to mention how cool the design of the nail was.
When I took off the Bio Seaweed Gel I used 100% acetone (Kroger brand) and soaked the nails in the acetone for about 10 minutes. After soaking them I gently rubbed off the Bio Seaweed Gel with a cuticle pusher.
Overall I was extremely happy with my first Bio Seaweed Gel experience. This is definitely worth the money spent. You receive beautiful long-lasting nails that don’t chip, dehydrate your nails or stain your nails. I couldn’t ask for anything better.
