One of the areas where my mom and I have very different philosophies is make-up. I have literally never seen her wear nail polish and she isn't big into make-up. She does, however, really enjoy the outdoors and one of her favorite hobbies is gardening. She is always working on some type of new project in the backyard and a few years back, she and my dad built a fish pond in the yard. At first, I played around with some floral manicure ideas to pay homage to my mom's love of gardening, but then I thought it might be fun to do something with fish instead. So I busted out some Sally Hansen Salon Effects in the design Don't Be Koi. I absolutely love this design and I thought it was a cool way to represent my mom and her garden!
I didn't really realize until after the mani was done how much lower the wrap on my middle finger was placed compared to the others. *sigh* But user error aside, Sally Hansen's nail wraps are some of the favorite because they're so easy to work with and there are always lots of beautiful designs to choose from. This one has got to be one of my favorite designs Sally Hansen has ever done for their wraps. It's really different from any other wrap patterns I've seen.
I hope you enjoyed my koi mani today! I'm looking forward to seeing what my fellow Twinsies did for their family manis this week. I have a feeling this is a theme that will bring out lots of great stories from everyone!
