This past weekend a good friend of mine married an even better man, and I was honored to be a bridesmaid. :)
The colors were cream, burgundy, and dark red. and I about peed in my pants when the bride told me she was going to wear a dark red shellac manicure, I JUMPED for joy..*YES, a bride who embraces color...WOO HOO!!*
So no boring beige's for me or safe colors like pink and cream, I went for ...RED!!!!!!
A Zoya Red to be specific, Zoya "Sarah" was the perfect color for my dress and for the wedding bouquet. As bridesmaids we got to pick our own dresses..WOO HOO x 2!!! Isn't the bouquet gorgeous?... and the bamboo in glass was a perfect party favor!
Here is a pic of my "manicure station" set-up in my hotel room. Color options, base coat, 2 top coats., cuticle oil, file, pusher, clean up brush, acetone and glass holder, lotion and cuticle cream
All the necessities for a great manicure. I brought lots of color choices, but I knew Zoya "Sarah" was IT for me :)
On of the other bridesmaids was a fellow "nail head", and after having our make-up done, applied Butter London base coat and 2 coats of Deborah Lippmann "Naked", followed by Butter London Top Coat...sweet! We chatted about polish (of course), and the maid-of-honor joined in...we had a lot of fun!!!!
Here is my Nicole Miller dress from the Nordstroms website...
...and here I am in the dress (taking pictures of yourself in the mirror is HARD...LOL)
Everything was great about this wedding, the couple, the colors, the people..PERFECT!!!
The bride choose 18 cakes as her centerpieces at each table, 5 different flavors, and you know I visited each table to try each cake...I was stuffed...good thing the dress had spandex in it...LOL!!!!!!
