Pinterest Nail FAIL

I love my neighborhood "chop shop." I love the gel manis and spa pedis and the free 5-minute neck massages. I even have gotten over being insulted when they tell me I need "callus remover" or my lip waxed. But the one thing they just can't get right? The Pinterest mani. You know, the amazing unique manis we all see all over Pinterest?

I went in today with half picked off 3 week old red polish and apparently visions of sugar plums dancing in my head. Half asleep from 10 days in the car and feeling oddly festive, I told the girl I wanted to do red and white stripes on my ring fingers - ala a candy cane! Whee! Fun! When they asked if I wanted a little sparkle to go with it, I thought "Sure! Even more FUN!"


Not so much. 


Of course I immediately had to go to lunch with all the KD Gala people, including Lucas' amazing KD doctor. I actually made a point to not talk with my hands. Which is near impossible for me. 

But looking on the bright side, I found a FABULOUS new toe nail polish!

Needless to say a color change is in my future.
