Essie - Gel Couture
At EB Elite Artistry, one of our requirements for our stylists on your special day is to have our nails painted. In your getting ready pictures, our hands are either styling your hair or doing your makeup, so it's important to us to have our nails look on point for your pictures. We think of these small details so you don't have to.
I honestly struggle with this, but always make it happen. Being a hairstylist my hands are in water what seems like 24/7. So with that being said, my manicure seems to last all of 10 minutes. Then on top of it, not only is my job working with my hands, I also live on a ranch, so I'm working with my hands all day everyday. (Which I wouldn't want any other way)
I have tried what feels like every brand of polish. Some I definitely like better than others. But recently I have found Essie gel couture and it has been working the best for me. I'm liking it because I don't need a light to set it and it seem to last the best.
My favorite nail color will always be a deep dark red that looks almost black. That would be my favorite, year round, I would have to say -- always my go to.
I'm also loving a pale pink shade at the moment. I'll have to see if I'm still into it when fall hits. (My FAVORITE time of the year!!!) I do also like to change it up. I do my nails so often so I will always try something a little different.
Right now for summer time, I'm finding I'm most attached to pale shades.
