Nails

Pink, White & Silver

When the recession hit, I had to let go of some luxuries in order to pull in the reigns on my expenses. I have always done my own hair, so the salons aren't missing my business. However, I did love getting professional manicures and pedicures, so those were the first things to go. Although I do a pretty good job of keeping my hands and feet in check, there's nothing like letting someone else rub your feet every once in a while.

On Friday, I finally decided to live a little and get a professional pedicure. It was the first one I've had in a long time, like eight months to a year to be exact. It felt so good to soak my feet and let someone massage them. A friend of mine took me to a cool spot that only charged $15.00 for the pedicure. The design was an additional $5.00. I opted to get a French pedicure using pink and white, and the nail tech suggested that I get a touch of silver to add some pizzazz to the look. Thus, this is what my feet looked like for the white party:

I stated in my silver and black makeup tutorial that the silver and pink on my toes inspired me to include a touch of pink on my lower lids. I'm so glad the nail tech talked me into spending the extra $5.00 for the design, because I was very pleased with the look!

I love the idea of doing French Pedi/Mani using color instead of the regular white tip!
