What I Wore Wednesday: Manicures and Pedicures

Last week I got a text from my Mother in Law saying she'd just read my bump update and that based off my update from 2009 she owed me a pedicure! Not one to turn down a pedi I took her up on her offer and officially made the 28 week pregnancy pedicure a thing!

We went to Revival Retreat on Byres Road in Glasgow where I'd not been before but they have proper spa pedicure thrones (not common here) and we got the works. It was very relaxing and if I'm honest I don't think I can comfortably reach my toes now myself! Obviously y'all know I'm digging on neon this summer so I immediately was drawn to OPI's neon collection. I try to get colours in a salon that I don't have at home so I chose You're So Outta Lime.


Neon Green Pedicure

Ignore my fat pregnant feet (see I told you I like Old Navy flip flops) but isn't it a fun shade of green? I was slightly worried it would look like I have a fungus or something but I think it is bright, fun and super summery!

I asked a few of my fellow Scottish bloggers to share some of their summer manicures so you aren't just starting at my swollen tootsies!  First up is Lori, also known as Glasgow Beauty Blogger, who got this fab hosiery inspired Calgel manicure from Swoon Nails in Glasgow.



Next up I had an amazing selection to choose from since Forever Yours, Betty loves to experiment with nail art but since we'll be getting 250 new emjoiis in the next few weeks (is anyone else excited or is it just me?) I had to go with this Emoji manicure by Nancy Mc in London.

Finally I'm in love with Amanda's, who blogs at Honey Pop, white and glitter manicure. I'm a sucker for glitter and I love how it's subtle in this reverse French manicure with an added statement nail.

Which nails are your favourite? Do you tend to go for a traditional one colour manicure or do you like to play around with nail art?

Love that glitter manicure! I would love to try this on a snow holiday - I don't know why but it reminds me a ski holiday (which oddly enough is all I have on the brain right now!)

Melaina25 said...

I've actually never had a pedicure! Can you believe it? Love the color you chose!

Melaina25 said...

I've been doing regular pedis and coloring my nails ever since starting karate, before that I rarely did.

Sorry for the missing link, I added myself whilst preparing lunch for my son and forgot in between juggling tasks, it's there now.
