Change of Plans Mani

So the orange dress is not going to work out :-(

It is still cute as a button, but an executive decision was made that there was a bit too much of the girls showing for a business function, and I've changed my mind to prevent too many men in tuxedos ignoring my eyes.

Instead, I am wearing a formal black dress, and in response, I had to change my nails. Here is the result.

I did Poppy Love in two coats followed by a stripe of Rimmel Black Satin. My intention was not to create tips, because my nails are currently too too short for that effect, but I like how the horizontal stripes came out.If I had any ultra glitters, tomorrow would be the night. I am officially adding a silver sparkle and a gold sparkle to my lemming list. Any suggestions? I am feeling the new Sephora OPI gold for Xmas, but I don't know quite where to turn.

The only thing I really don't like about this mani is that it definitely comes off tomorrow night, while a work safe color will be going on. (Not to say I won't be wearing this or countless other rockin' manis to work) But Friday is a big day requiring boring nails, but the existence of color to show personality.

The color I picked up (My mom picked it up actually) is called Pink Suede.

I will share soon, but likely not for a couple days, because Thursday will be an all-dayer.

That is a great mani, I'm sorry the orange dress didn't work out! Oh, and I will be sending your package out next Thursday (after my finals)!

Looks nice. A black dress is always perfect.
