RAWR Shop- Not Your Average Wedding Party

Hello my lovelies!! Today I have something special I'd like to share with you.
I was contacted by the lovely Erin last week about doing nails for a wedding party.
She mentioned that the Bride is looking for something non-traditional....and she thought of me...

So I showed up last night with my kit and did the following mani's:

Nancy (the bride) came in with a game plan. I love it when someone has a clear image of what they want.
The theme colour of the wedding is shades of purple, and grey. So we decided that all girls will have manis around that colour scheme.

For Nancy, we went with a soft purple/lavender gradient, and sponged on some holographic/hexa glitter mixture.

This mani is subtle enough that won't take the attention away from the beautiful wedding dress and ring.
Yet it'll catch your eyes under the right lighting. These'll look amazing with her holding her bouquet. <3
In my opinion, she made absolutely all the right choices to go with these colours.

Next up is Erin, the Maid of Honour.
I loved this mani on her. 

I called these her superhero nails.
Being the Maid of Honour, you could probably imagine the responsibility she had to take on...
So we gave her bold colour tips, with a dash of AWESOMENESS on the ring finger.

Now she can save the world! 
....One bouquet at a time!

Last but not least, meet Megan (bridesmaid)

Megan is an office professional who is very good at what she does.
Since maintaining a professional image is NOT easy, we decided that we had to figure out a way for her to look Glamourously Professional!

For Megan, we went with a fade. We kept her existing nude Shellac mani and added Color Club's Platinum Records to it. She came up with this all by herself. (so proud)

and VOILA!
All three manis in one night.

The girls were saying how each of their mani's match their personalities, and I am SO happy to hear that.
Because a manicure SHOULD ALWAYS reflect your true self. how mine is always loud and obnoxious...

Thank you Erin for this amazing opportunity, what an honour it was to be included in such an important event!
Wishing you guys an AWESOME wedding day this weekend.
