Nails – Summer Solstice


The Summer Solstice – Right

Celebrating The Summer Solstice

Time for a new design. If you’ve never had your nails done, you may not know that you need to visit your designer every 2 to 3 weeks. It depends on how fast your nails grow.

Typically for me an acrylic set will last between 16 to 19 days. Then they start lifting and need to be replaced. This isn’t a flaw, its normal wear and tear. The oil in your nails degrade the material and the nail can lift in the back near the cuticle. Normally you can use a small dab of super glue and secure the nail till you have time to visit your Nail Shop.

But even if that doesn’t happen, you’ll still need to visit for a “fill in”. As your nail grows a gap is created between the base of the acrylic nail and the cuticle. It’s also an opportunity to get a nice new design painted by your personal artist.

We’re less than a week away from the Summer Solstice so I was careful to pick out a color that reminded me of the up coming holiday. Ms. May was busy today when I popped into the shop. So my artist was Ms. Lilly. I’ll find out and update later. I don’t remember things the way I used to.

She asked what kind of design I wanted this month and I told her to do what she liked. She picked the colors and decided to design nail a little differently.

On top of that she also designed each hand with slightly different colors. I thought it was a great idea for the Summer Solstice. And I truly love the wispy flowing designs. They remind me of summer breezes, waves on the lake, growing grasses that dance in the fields.

Of course I have to give a big thanks to my Man for these. Thanks Sweetie for letting me go out and feel pretty this month.
