If there's one thing I dislike, it's chipped, chewed nails, and being one for ultimate glamour I had Gel nails put on about a year ago now. Oh how I loved them, they protected my nails, as they were constantly in water, and the Dita manicure I had lasted just around 4 weeks. If only I didn't have to keep up the expense that goes with maintaining your fake nails, so few weeks ago I made the painful decision to have them soaked off. I must be the only hairdresser without them.
I kept disciplined, keeping them looking as good as possible. Trouble is with red polish, it's really obvious when one develops a chip. After years of red polish I decided to opt for a nude shade, to allow for a few chips here and there. My Dita manicure is now saved for special occasions!
The one I'm wearing and have been wearing is brilliant and takes around a week for it to chip. It's an OPI one in a shade called 'barefoot in barcelona'. Highly recommended for fellow poor hairdressers!
Love as always, Lucille x.
