Jilly K is in the house!

September 5, 2012

Hey there everyone!! This is Jill here – Laura’s co-founder on gloss48. Laura is off having a baby or something super lazy like that, so I’m getting the chance to blog for gloss48. I’m pretty excited about it – I’ve always wanted to try it. I’m also pretty nervous about it – it’s my first time – so be gentle!!

We’re going to start slow, OK? Today I want tell you about my awesome mani pedi. Boring topic, I know, but I’m actually really excited about two things: 1) the colors I chose and 2) my very first OPI gel manicure (I’m kind of a natural nails girl).

Let’s start with my manicure – I chose a literally life-changing shade of blue / grey / shimmer from OPI called “I Have a Herring Problem” – pictured below (these are so not my nails, FYI). For some reason the color is a bit darker on my nails than in this photo – maybe because I used the gel version… Anyhoo, I love love love it – it is a perfect transition shade for Labor Day weekend.

The jury’s still out on the gel manicure, of course. I’m used to CND Shellac, so we’ll have to see how this stacks up. I loved the fact that it was way faster than Shellac, and the polish seems a little thinner so I’m hoping I won’t get that “I will kill myself if I can’t get this off my nails” on day 6 or 7. I’ll make sure to get back to you next week, since I know you’ll all be waiting by the phone.

Now let’s turn our attention to this crazy cool color I got on my feet. I love the new OPI fall collection, and thankfully MiniLuxe (i.e. the best nail salon in the world) has it in. Manicurist to the star (me) Elaine Thompson  suggested I check out My Very First Knockwurst, a pale, opaque, rosy, pink with brown undertones. It’s awesome. I was kind of sick of bright summer colors but not ready for deep dark fall colors, so this was a perfect in betweener for the next few weeks.

Well that’s all I’ve got blogging-wise right now – stay tuned for our Friday giveaway…!
