Chickettes is on vacation!

Today is the beginning of my European adventure!  My mom and I will be visiting four cities in twelve days.  A good friend is getting married in Southern France and I couldn’t pass up the amazing opportunity to travel overseas and celebrate with them.  Tomorrow morning we will land in Barcelona, where we’ll spend two nights.  Then we will head to Martisserre, France to join our friends in wedding festivities.  After the wedding we will depart for three nights in Paris, and then we will be heading to Amsterdam for three nights.  In Amsterdam I’m meeting up with Steven and Leontine, the creators and owners of Pink Gellac!  I’m hoping to get photos of their facilities and perhaps interview them so that you can meet the people behind the brand, and see how it’s made, packaged, etc.

This is the first time I’m taking a break from blogging since I started more than three years ago.  Normally when I travel I prepare posts ahead of time, but I didn’t do that this time simply because I ran out of time.  I probably won’t be able to check in online very often during my trip since I have to rely on wifi to connect, but keep an eye on my Instagram and Facebook accounts because I’m going to try to post some photos along the way.

One other bit of exciting news is that I’m starting a new job when I return!  I have accepted a natural nail tech position at Polizhed, which is located in Beachwood Ohio.  If you’re a Cleveland-area local, you will soon be able to book an appointment with me for a gel polish manicure, pedicure, or other natural nail service!  I’ll post more info once I’m settled in.  My first day will be on September 1st!

Chickettes Paris NailsThis is how I did my nails for the trip.  The dress I’m wearing to the wedding already has a pattern so I went with a solid color and just one accent nail on each hand.  The glittery pink color is CND Shellac Butterfly Queen.  The accent nail has a white base using Pink Gellac Soft White, and then it’s double-stamped with the Eiffel Tower (Cheeky European Romance plate) and the words “Ooh La La!” (Messy Mansion plate MM06).

I almost forgot… my thumbs also have a stamp that says “Live – Laugh – Love” in white (BM-405 plate).

I’ll be back to enable you to purchase more gel polish goodies in about 2 weeks!  In the meantime, give your wallets a break.  Nah, what fun is that?  LOL
