My Wedding Nails - I Got MARRIED

Hey y'all!  So if you couldn't tell by the title, and you don't follow me on Instagram, I recently got married. No, this isn't an April Fools joke. My husband(yes it still feels weird saying that, even months later) and I have been together for well over a decade & just said "why not already".

We decided to go simple, small, and non-traditional. Even better, it was mostly stress free.  I say mostly because a few days before I ended up breaking a nail on my right hand below the nail line & ended up changing my entire nail shape(which I'm LOVING BTW) rather than cutting all of them down. Not to mention various other things.

My dress was a simple sleeveless, knee-length comfortable one. It's a aqua, cobalt blue, cream, and black chevron (or zig zag) design that I picked up on sale, AND with a coupon, at JC Penney.  So instead of doing something like a french mani, I went with leopard print in the colors of the dress.

Finding the right shade, because I'm OCD that way, was time consuming, but I felt that China Glaze Aquadelic and Zoya Sia were the two that I needed(out of the 20+ I pulled out of my Helmers).

The design itself was pretty easy and didn't really take long at all.  And to tie the black on the dress, I used acrylic paint for the lines on the spots.

We, as in the two of us and our son, were the only ones at the ceremony. We decided on simple bands as well.  Our "photographer", aka our son, only took 2 pictures with our cell, so this is what I took after the ceremony. The morning of, snow was threatening to shut everything down but thankfully it was minimal....though it was COLD wearing a short length dress and walking in under an umbrella so that my hair didn't get covered.

Of course, the next day we went to get the certificate & I had to make a Starbucks stop on the way home to try the Molten Chocolate Latte.  It was AMAZEBALLZ.  I liked it way more than just the cafe mocha & definitely more than the Molten Chocolate Frappe (which my husband went to get me a few days later & ended up stuck in traffic).
