I Finally Tried Gel Nails!

I can’t believe it took this long for me to try gel nails! I’ve never really been big on nails becasue fashion and hair are my crack, but I’ve recently started trying a lil sumthin-sumthin every now and then, and yesterday gel nails stole my heart. I attended a nail party hosted by my newest gal pal Talitha Vickers, and it was so much fun! (If you’re in the Orlando area, you can catch her reporting live on Wesh 2 news.)

The event was held at Millenia Nails & Day Spa, and I felt right at home because the room full of beauty and fashion insiders! My girl Safia of Lipstick Mixtapes, who has a to-die-for lipstick line that you must try, the ever-trendy Christine and Maria of Boldly Unique , a company that sells custom-made fascinators (WERK!), and the gorgeously creative Maria from Cult Nails , she has her own nail amazing polish line, all came to the party and we had ourselves a glammy good time! Check out these flicks from the event below.

Michelle, Safia, myself and Maria chatted it up after manis and pedis!

Rocking my freshly painted pink nails!

I loved this peach, sparkly hue my friend Natalie picked. I was jealous because I almost got it and changed my mind!

I just thought this was the cutest! They used nail polish as decor in one of the drink despnsers.

Myself and Talitha the brains behind this beauty gathering! (I really hate this pic of myself, but oh well…)

Have you tried gel nails? What’s your go-to color for Spring?

Ciao Bellas,

    I love gel nails! I apply a gel topcoat over my regular manicures to keep them shiny and the chips away. Your event looks like it was so much fun!
