You’ll always catch me with a fresh, clean mani. Whether I’m rockin’ Essie Bachelorette Bash or OPI Tasmanian Devil Made Me Do It, my nails always add that pop of color when it comes to my Friday-nights wardrobe -- almost always an LBD.
As of lately, however, I’ve been feeling a little nude. I’ve been wearing less black. I’ve ditched my red lipstick for a soft pink gloss. My makeup bag is collecting dust right where I left it a couple of days ago. And my bare nails have finally seen the light of day in almost two years.
As beauty director of Feather, you’d think that looking all dolled up would be a priority. I mean, don’t get me wrong. It’s very important for me to always look my best, and normally that includes a nice manicure. However, it’s perfectly fine to kick back your heels every now and then and soak in a little thing called laziness.
These past few days, instead of looking slimming in an LBD, I’ve worked my curves. My lips haven’t been so intimidating to guys since I’ve put red lipstick on the backburner. My friends have gotten to see me as I really am when the makeup comes off before bed, and even though I look better with makeup on, it’s kind of refreshing to exude confidence without any on. I’ve also been able to clean my dishes without worrying about ruining my manicure.
Sometimes, taking a week off from your beauty regimen makes you feel a little less like a Kardashian and more like the twenty-something busy bee that you are. So, kick back your heels and embrace the nude...but with your clothes on!
