After a long week of classes, my friend, Kassidy, and I decided that we should do something fun to celebrate making it through another week.  Since Kassidy has an interview next week (*crosses fingers*), she really wanted to get her nails done.  Looking at the state of my fingernails *yikes*, I agreed.  We ended up going to this little nail shop called Diamond Nails in Duluth by the mall.  I had never realized it was there before but it was very nice on the inside. Very cute, and clean, and had a giant TV on the wall that played an endless Netflix-marathon of some HGTV show. YAS.
As you can tell from the picture, it was very busy (and is apparently busy all the time), I was glad we made an appointment!  
I decided that since I have never had acrylics before, I would do a gel manicure because it is supposed to last longer than regular nail polish.  And besides, they always do SUCH a better job than me; whenever I paint my own nails, it always look like I poured the polish directly onto my nails. A MESS.
Oooohh Look at all the colors!

I decided to go with a nice bright coral-orange color.  And a silver accent nail because why not.  I was feeling very spontaneous.  So crazy.  

The lady who did my nails was so lovely and she really cleaned up my nails to make them look nice.  I am very happy with them.
I am so jealous of Kassidy's nails.  They are like, my aesthetic.  I am obsessed with them.  She got a black matte nail with shiny black tips.  I think that I am going to get that done the next time I get my nails done!

Overall, I had such a fun time!  Sometimes, it's nice to just relax and not worry about homework or anything and just pamper yourself.  At least that's what I like to tell myself.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I will see you next week!
