TWINKLE-TOES!!!!!! Oh,the gloriousness that are our sparkle-arkely toenails....such glamour, the likes of which has n'ere been seen before.....
It's a complex and time-consuming procedure, the Twinkle-toe-ectomy - first, a day must be set aside. The purchase (and consumption) of crunchy snacks, chocolate, vino and a healthy array of luncheon items must be made. Any hint of scaly heels, dry skin or unsightly cracks must be removed from feet prior to Twinkle-age, dry heels are not a good look with glitter. The lovely Kristin then conducts her own special brand of sadistic torture (after all, beauty IS pain) - filing the surface of the toe-nail so that the gel can adhere. She does this with a finger or two in-between two of your most ticklish toes. A layer of gel is applied, then your tootsies go into the UV box for the gel to set. They come out sticky, whereupon a fine layer of your chosen twinkles is applied (we had a choice of 8 colours of glitter, and about 6 different shaped glitter - stars, hearts....). Another coat of gel, another dose of UV, and voila! Perfect piggies!!!
Jules - with the bling - went for an orange to match her car (keep an eye out for a car set to cruise control, and the driver with a foot out of each window), my Mummy (we convinced her that she needed sparkly toes) chose an elegant pale gold, Fee opted for a brilliant blue, Kristin modelled the set she gave herself the day before, and my fuschia fabulousness!
Aren't we special??
Oh, and I've been working on my Bag-swap bag, and a red sock of my own design. And a Noro-sock sock. And I made three cotton shower-exfoliant-mitts - essentially just socks without heels, and a few ridges thrown in for extra scrubbiness.
