workwear wednesday: lady in red

Justine and I are sharing our red looks for this week’s workwear wednesday. You’ll have to excuse my janky selfie, but due to being sick (both me and hubby) and time constraints, this is the only picture I could muster. I also wanted to share my super shiny red manicure. I’ve had gel manicures before but this time was my first time trying some nail art. I have to say, it was definitely not what I was expecting (I was hoping it would look better) but I’m still enjoying the snowflake/star design nonetheless.

Red is a wonderful color, and used to be one of my very favorites. When I went to go pick out my outfit for this week’s post, I was kind of surprised that I have very few red articles of clothing. Most of my clothes are blue and black. So, I decided to go for red dots with this top, which is probably one of my favorite thrifted finds.

I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas already. I’ll admit, because of work, being sick for weeks, and other things, I’ve been completely unprepared this year. I hope all of you are having a great holiday season, no matter what you celebrate. Xoxo

  1. Loving those polka dots! I saw your mani on Instagram too and I have to say that even though it’s not exactly what you were hoping for, it’s still ridiculously cute and festive!

    Also, I’ve never had a gel manicure before. How long do yours typically last?

    1. Thanks girl! If they’re done right, they can last for 2-3 weeks, depending on how quickly your nails grow. Basically if done right, the only thing is your nails grow so they start to look funny, but there are no chips or cracks. Unfortunately if the nail tech doesn’t paint the gel on correctly, they can chip very soon, but if that happens, i’d go back to the salon and insist they fix it. The gel polish manufacturers usually say they last 14 days,

      Anyway, long story short…I LOVE GEL POLISH. But, it’s kind of addictive and it can get expensive.
