It's now a memory from the past (although now that I think about it, I still need to pick up our photos and video), but our wedding truly was one of the best days of our lives. We had the most amazing team of stylists--from nails, to hair to makeup--that worked with my girls and I. I kid you not, we were up at the crack of dawn, utilizing two suites in the hotel, having ourselves pampered and readied for the long couple of days ahead of us. The poor guy and his groomsmen were on another floor and hoping to use one of our rooms (since they're a bunch of over-sized super tall giants--really needing their space), but the ladies met them at the door screaming no way! I mean, come on--blow driers and curling irons can really heat up a place--we definitely needed the two.
Although there are several photos that I was set on the photographers capturing (will share a few later), I wanted to snap my nails and lip-look before I forgot. Capturing things like my nails or lips on camera, is something that I get a lot of slack for from the family. When we returned from our honeymoon, there were whole huge portions of our film that were devoted to several hand postures. Everyone just rolled their eyes and poked fun, while I tried to defend myself "ermm..I was testing the light..." nervously at the side.
So, without further ado, my bridal nails and lip color, 7000 miles away from home:
Please don't mind the growout that is clearly occurring--this was four days after the manicure--my nails grow like weeds. I took this picture mainly to highlight the color, and also the fact that the technician somehow made my nails appear a bit acrylic, although nothing other than polish was used! The color of choice was from OPI's Bridal Collection, and namely OPI's Toss the Bouquet, which I thought very fitting given the event.
This is a tired looking photo (I had stepped off of our day-long flight about an hour prior), which was taken with the aim of highlighting the lip products that were used on the big day--and later all throughout the honeymoon. It's Bobbi Brown's Lip Liner in Naked, paired with her Lipgloss in Pink Beige. Seriously my favorite thing from all that was used on me--it's non-sticky, has a nice applicator brush (as opposed to sponge), and small enough to toss in a small clutch (or in the Mr's pant pocket, which became the case throughout our trip). It's kind of like my own lips, but better--and that went a long way in working to my benefit as it came time for speeches, eating and drinking.
How's that side-braid?! My "warm weather and I can't be bothered" standby look :) I do have a tag that I am getting to work on, as well as a contest entry *cough cough*, so there may be a day or two in here with double-posts. Ah well, more for the reading, right?
How was your weekend?
