July Nails 2010

Posted by Suteisi ♥ at 1:18 PM 1 comments
For my birthday (July 22) I decided to get my nails done.

I hadn't had them done since January, so it had been quite some time. I don't know for you gals out there but I like to give my real nails a break once in a while. I figured 5-6 months is good enough.

I tried this new salon that opened this year, it's called Xtenza. They do nails and hair. They're quite small, but the service is awesome. My nailist understood exactly what I wanted and they turned out great. Plus, she doesn't used tips!! I was so glad. Everywhere I'd gone before, they always used plastic tips they glued at the end of my nails and then put the acrylic or porcelain on top.



Stephanie (nailist's name) starts from scratch, using stickers applied around the finger. This is how nails are done in Japan, as so well explained by Mitsu on her blog: .

They are a bit thicker than I wanted them to be, but she says since it's the first time she did them on me, she wanted to make them thick enough to have a good base, so when I go back next, she'll be able to make them thinner.



These were done on July 17th, so I'll be due to go back this week. I like this design of one tip color and a different colored line underneath, but I think this time I'll go for flashier colors, something that'll pop!

Stay tuned!

Hello and welcome to Gossip Candy!

My name is Stacey, or (as I like to refer myself as) Suteisi ♥ ステイスィー.

I'm 23 years old, I live in Canada, I'm bilingual (french and english) and most importantly, I love to write! I have had 3 (yes 3!!) livejournal accounts prior to this blog, so I'm no newcomer but this one, is going to be different. With a fresh new start on blogger!

Mostly Gossip Candy has been created for my own pleasure to blurb about anything and everything that interests me in life. But I hope others will find joy and entertainment into reading what I have to write. I'm no expert in anything, nor do I proclaim to know everything about everything. On here will be displayed my own thoughts and opinions on the various subjects I decide to discuss.

In all this mix, I hope to be able to put pictures about everything and anything I do, places I visit, things that I purchase, people that I see, food that I eat, etc. Gossip Candy, will also be like a small place for me to document things that I do, in order for me to go back and read what has happened over the years.

So, please, feel free to join me, if you wish to do so, on this lovely journey that will be Gossip Candy!
