2021 Nails

I love nails! I have my nails done 98% of the time. That 2% represents when I’ve taken off acrylics, press ons, or nail polish. In the Reels above you see my 2021 nail journey. I stuck to regular nail polish and acrylic nails for the majority of the year. It wasn’t until October that I started wearing press ons. The acrylic nails are done by my nail lady while the regular polish and press ons are done by me.

I discovered ILNP nail polish late 2020 so the majority of my nail polish colors in the beginning of 2021 were that brand as I learned the best way to make the manicure last. When I switched to press ons in October I expanded my size range. I prefer small sized press ons because they’re less likely to pop off but I found some medium sized ones that gave me added length without the worry. I dipped into the large sized section and I learned that they’re not that practical because of my line of work. Although pretty, they are not as durable.

I would say that my nails were pretty good last year. I definitely branched out in designs and got plenty of compliments.

I recently went to get my nails done and I let Sonia, my nail lady, freestyle. I typically stick to natural solid colors with no designs so my only input was the pink powder. When she told me that she was going to add glitter I didn’t know what to expect since I find glitter to be too girly for me. At first I thought that the glitter was too chunky but once she buffed and filed it it looked much better.

I must say that these nails remind me of Barbie, especially the glitter ombre nails. Even with the Barbie pink I actually like these nails. The added rhinestones are also much more in my lane of simplicity. This was my first time letting Sonia completely freestyle. Usually I go in with an idea of what I want and she puts her twist to it. But regardless of whether I know what I want or not, Sonia never disappoints me! She gets my nail style which is why I always go back to her.
