When I was in Brooklyn, Jill and I headed for manicures and pedicures. I went the gel route because I figure it will be a while until I get back for another manicure. My toes match the bridesmaids dress I am wearing again this Saturday for Beth's Bermuda reception. My finger nails are a pale pink and I went with the gel. I am curious how long they will last for. Of course, last night on the plane back from JFK, I read an article about it not being that great for your nails. Whatevs. My nails have been naked for months. I am sure this stuff won't do any permanent harm. And at least they look really good now too.
