Jesus is the Reason but . . .

Jesus is the reason but those of you who know me knew an item like this would appear for the weekend. 
Yes, I am also wearing this in the office and will be sporting it through both the Spokane and Seattle airports later today. 

I've already had spontaneous conversations at the hotel and Starbucks this AM.  The rest of the day should hold even more looks and commentary.

Happy Easter to you and yours. 

Peace, Love, Laughter, and Soul Y'all.

Heading back out to fly the friendly skies again today. 

Going to the Big D, which is where I was bred, born, and raised. 

Thankfully I get to squeeze in a little bit of family time before the meetings begin.

Hope you and yours have a great week. 

Peace, Love, Laughter, and Soul Y'all.

Those of you who see me in person know my nails sadly can and often are a hot mess. 

My hands and nails take a beating with the work I do, the travel, the time spent on a computer, texting, and the time spent pursuing my creative endeavors.

I have weak nails to begin with; even my toe nails break easily! 

Saturday I went for my twice a month manicure.  I threw in a pedicure too. 

My lady asked if I wanted a shellac manicure. 

Other than being asked if I wanted one about a two months ago I wasn't quite sure what a shellac manicure was but I said yes without giving it a second thought. 

When she told me the color would stay for at least 2 weeks I was sold for sure.  Sign me up for a shellac-ing! 

My nails tend to do a lot better when protected by a bit of polish. 

My thoughts were What do I have to lose?  Maybe a few extra dollars.  What do I have to gain?  Pretty, stronger nails for more than a few days. 

Let's do this. 

I am only on day 2 but so far so good.

All the internet reports and facebook replies have indicated this process will and does work.  The polish will last.  Since there is no buffing involved, my nails should be stronger. 

Usually by now at least one of my nails would be showing signs of wear and tear so to speak.  Not tonight!  They look like I just left the salon. 

If it holds and withstands the hype, I know there will be no going back for me. 

Feel free to read about it here, here, and here

NOTE:  first two links are testimonials and the last link is the official CND Shellac website. 

Oh and the color I'm sporting is a pale pink.  Maybe I'll go bolder the next time around.

Peace, Love, Laughter, and Soul Y'all.
