Nails

Looking back at 2013, I can honestly say that a lot has happened. My life changed dramatically and I enjoyed almost every moment. Despite the ups and occasional downs, one thing that was always changing was my polish color. Here’s a quick review of my year told through my color choices:

Starting with January, I decided to do my college colors. My parents gave me an amazing graduation party and little did I know, it would be the last time I would see two members of my family. Life changes in an instant and I have to remind myself to cherish every moment.

My mother and maid of honor took me dress shopping in January where I found “the dress”. I’m glad I had my nails done for the sake of this photo!

This was the last time going to my regular salon. I found that I would have to re-paint my nails every week myself just because they would get nasty. Ain’t nobody got time for that!

Fast forward to June when all the crazy wedding festivities began. I began trying out nail looks for the big day and here was one of the test runs. I got tons of compliments at my amazing bridal shower thrown by my maid of honor and fabulous sister in law. I switched salons and liked the quality of my nails better.

Right before the wedding, I was feeling a little Beyonce-ish and went for a soft metallic gold and a Barbie pink. It was perfect for my bachelorette party! ❤️

This is the only nail pic I can find on my phone for my wedding nails. This was taken the night before and I was so exhausted I drank my coffee in less than ten minutes. What a wonderful experience though! I am married to the man of my dreams!

I wanted to do something fun for the end of summer so I chose the same Barbie pink I did for my bachelorette party on my ring fingers. This color was so summery and pretty! It was one of my favorite polishes.

I was a bridesmaid three times this year and did purple nails for the first September wedding I was in. I wasn’t really into the color but it doesn’t look too bad in the photo.

The next September wedding, the bride choose green nails. I’m not too into the crazy colors because of work. I do love this ring the bride gave me! I wear it everyday!

A few days after the green, I re-did my nails to these colors and got tons of compliments. Granted my audience is high school girls, I still think it’s cool they like my style. Doesn’t make me feel super old.

I did a blood-red for fall. It wasn’t really for any particular reason except how much I loved the color. It was amazing.

For Thanksgiving, I chose a brown and gold. Please excuse my disgusting mirror. Oscar and I got our first house in October and we decided to throw Thanksgiving. My parents, in-laws, Grandma, sisters, and cousins celebrated the day with us and it was oh so wonderful!

My last manicure of the year are my candy cane nails. They are super fun and were perfect for candy cane day at the school I work at! December is my favorite time of the year and I love being festive.

I know I’m missing some manicures but these were the ones on my phone. I don’t know why I’m always taking pictures of my fingers and hands. I guess I justify it as being better than having tons of selfies on my Instagram. This year was a great year with lots of memorable events. I am so blessed and have lots of wonderful people in my life. I don’t think my manicures will ever be as eventful. I am looking forward to a nice relaxing 2014.
xoxo,
Lyss
