What is it that's just so lovely about having your nails painted? I got a pedicure the other day (and I hadn't painted them in months) this dark purple color and felt it necessary that my naked finger nails get the same extravagant treatment. I wanted dark blue so I went to the grocery store and my nails are now "Midnight Affair" blue. It's just a really dark indigo sparkly blue. I painted them today. I really took my time too. And I must say they came out really nice. Now my hands feel all shiny and new and just extremely....feminine. Love it. I've noticed too it seems to be a trend to paint dark colors on rather short natural nails. I don't know if it's a new trend. I've been doing it for a long time, but have only recently noticed in television and movies especially, how much of a trend it has become. Well, I don't care if it's a trend or not. I think it's fabulous.
Not to mention what a good idea it is to save money to pull a dyi on your mani's and pedi's every once in a while. I got the idea from Melanie over at Melanie's Randomness. Check out all her other money saving ideas here.
