Firstly the hands (feet another day!) - here's my before picture...
I went to my friend Catherine's house to have my fingernails done. I worked with Catherine pre-twins and we've stayed in touch since. I knew she did nails from her home in her spare time so when she shared her new range of Bio Sculpture colours on Facebook, one of the colours took my fancy and I decided to take the plunge!
The colour that won me over was 122 - Ashes of Roses. I love a gorgeous neutral nail and this didn't disappoint. Here we are mid-manicure. It's quite a lengthy process and I was glad of Catherine's steady hand!And here's the finished job - my nails haven't looked this good in years! Catherine gave me lots of advice on how to extend the life of the manicure and insisted I do no washing up or cleaning....without rubber gloves. Better get me some Marigolds - maybe that's where I've been going wrong all this time.
Another friend, Claire came along too and she was much braver than me with her colour choice. This deep pink/red is stunning.
And now to what I wore to Catherine's. As some of you correctly guessed, I bought the Miss Captain neon ombre jumper from Pearl's sale yesterday. My husband thinks I look like I've stood out in the rain too long and the colour in the jumper ran. Seriously...men have NOT got a clue <sigh>
