So I've had this skirt for probably about 3 years now, but it's a favorite in my closet and I am always pairing it with new tops so I can keep the look of the skirt fresh and new.  It's always a bonus when you have something in your closet that is always stylish, but also rings in on the trend list for latest season.

My newest obsession is gel nails.  They are fabulous and the colors are so rich.  Gel nails actually combats two issues that I have.  The first issue I am a habitual nail biter.  I have been a nail biter as long as I can remember.  The nature of the fingernail polish is so thick that it prevents me from biting as well as the sheer loveliness of the color.  My second issue is that with a regular manicure I will start to chip in 2-3 days.  I am a clumsy ogre of a person.  I always running into something, dropping stuff, etc.  A person like me always chips their nails.  With the gel nail I can literally keep a fresh looking manicure for up to 3 weeks (my nails grow slowly too).  I have never had long nails before.  The gel manicure has actually allowed me to have nails!  I am so excited.  For those who haven't tried it.  I have paid between $25 to $45 for the manicure.

  1. Love the look.

    My regular mani with color lasts about 2 days if that. I may try gel nails. How are your nails when the gel is taken off?

  3. @Regina Hi when you take it off you nails are a little beatup, but it's nothing as bad as acrylic. I am really funny about my nails being damaged by products, so the damage is not enough to turn me away.

  10. Congrats on the new job!! Gel polish has been my addiction all summer!! I love how it lasts long and they stay shiny for a long time. It's also supposed to be healthier for your nails. :-)

  13. Cute outfit! I could never pull it off, but looks great on you! I love Shellac too! It's so great how it stays on. I have to agree with Chastity though. I had to take a break from it for a while, it has made my nails thin and they peel really bad.
