Heather's Couture Corner - Paint Your Summer Bright!

| BY Heather Kiely

Getting my nails done every week was a must!!! I had always enjoyed a mani/pedi and the time spent at the salon. Now, being a full-time mom getting my nails done is a lot harder than I thought 😏...... However, I am really very good at doing my own nails and copy the techniques I have watched done for a decade:) I noticed that the nail technician always buffs the nail really well and has me wash my hands and nails before we start painting. I also noticed that after the base coat and first layer of color they repeat with a second base coat!!! Followed by a second layer of color, and finished with a quick drying top coat. I love OPI base "Natural Nail Base Coat" and Essie top coat "Good to Go".

I follow these professional steps and my "at home mani" lasts for a full week!!!! What I love about doing my nails is the color!!! It is a way to express myself and celebrate the season. My favorite colors for Summer are always bright pinks and corals. The nail polish brands I love: Essie, Deborah Lippmann, and OPI are chemical free and safe to wear during pregnancy. The colors in my summer nail bag are Essie "Pink Happy"(FAVORITE!!!!), Essie "Watermelon", Essie "Mob Squad", Deborah Lippmann "Pink Melon Melange", Deborah Lippmann "Day Tripper", and Dior "Wonderland".

These nail colors are so yummy and go great with my Summer wardrobe!!!! Especially if you sport Lilly Pulitzer🎀. The nail polish brands are priced from $8-$27 and are worth every penny! They do not peel, they stay vibrant and as I mentioned before, are free of harmful chemicals. I hope you are inspired to either run out and get a mani/pedi or try the techniques I shared above. Express yourself in color, painting your Summer bright and fun☀️!! Looking to brighten your portfolio?
