Say Yes To The Dress

Hello Gabbz here,

Today I bring you another mani inspired by one of my favorite shows Say Yes To the Dress and as picture above states, it comes on Friday's on TLC. This show features brides from all over the country and the world to come to Kleinfeld in New York to find the perfect bridal gown. In the show the brides talk about how they were purposed to and where/when the wedding will take place. After the consultant gathers the wedding information, as well as the brides gown request, they go on the hunt to find a gown. Now it's not always a happy ending at the boutique. The show has featured women that do leave empty handed. Not only does it show the women and the wedding gown selection, it also shows women coming back for fittings. I think that in itself should be a show all on it's own lol. Brides have come back months later to have alterations made and some don't even remember what the gown they fell in love with looks like!

There have been two other spin off shows from the original Say Yes to the Dress that I also love. The first spin-off is called Say Yes to the Dress: Big Bliss, where they feature plus size women going to Kleinfeld to trying and find a bridal dress. The second is Say Yes To The Dress: Atlanta, where you guessed it, brides go to boutique in Atlanta to find that southern belle dress. All in all, they are all great shows and I commend the consultants for putting up with the demands of the brides.

My inspiration for this look was all the beautiful wedding gowns featured in the show. So I decided to do a white lace manicure. I used Zoya Pandora as a base color. Pandora is a really pretty nude color similar to my skin tone, with a tiny bit of shimmer. Then I stamped a lace image over Pandora. For this, I used one of my favorite plates, Konad M57.

Here's the finished look

1 coat of Pandora under China Glaze Base Coat

I used the lace image furthest to the right on the top row
Since it's a thin image I stamped it about 3-4 times until
the whole nail was covered

Then I topped it off with 1 coat of Seche Vite

What do you think? Have you seen Say Yes To the Dress before? If so, which of the three is your favorite? Leave your comments below and have a safe weekend.
