My wedding nails!

I'm back, everyone! On Saturday my fiance and I got married. We had an absolutely wonderful time with our family and friends, despite the weird weather we've been having on the east coast--in fact, it was raining about 15 minutes before and 30 minutes after our outdoor ceremony, but during the ceremony the sun came out and it was beautiful! The whole weekend went by in a blur, and I think it's still sinking in for both of us that we're actually married!

Of course I decided to do my own nails, since I thought it would be a lot more meaningful than just getting them done in a salon. I didn't choose anything complicated for the sake of my sanity, but I still got a lot of compliments on them!

(Sorry they look a bit scruffy--it's been a rough weekend!)

I used two coats of Essie Waltz, a white jelly, and then did the flowers with acrylic paint, purple to match my wedding colors. (It wasn't as simple as it sounds; I had to redo them multiple times...) Then I topped everything with a coat of Orly Love Each Other, a clear base with very subtle purple/pink/blue shifting shimmer. This was barely visible, but it made me feel a little more special! You can just see a hint of the shimmer on my thumb and ring finger.

Anywho, I'm looking forward to getting back on the horse when it comes to blogging, and I should have a fun post for July 4th!
