So, Ria... Do You Always Have A Perfect Manicure In Public?

today was lovely, my cousin came for a visit and we spent the day exploring Cannery Row in Monterey. it was absolutely packed, i guess all the tourists are here for August. we even went to my fave restaurant for dinner... it always seems like we go a couple times close together, and then don't go again for a long time. i'm sure it feels longer to me since i love it so much! i really miss the Japanese restaurant in Virginia Beach that did a lunch special for only $5.50... you can barely eat at McDonald's for that around here! (not that i don't love McDonald's, cause i do! :D )

i thought for this So, Ria... i'd talk about something people always like to ask... do you have to do your nails to go out? well, the answer is... NO! i definitely prefer an immaculate mani, but i will definitely head out with trashed nails. like today... as you can see in the picture, i have on different colors, some stamping attemps... and everything is chipped, chipped, chipped. i feel the same way about hair and makeup... while i like to look sharp... sometimes, i'm just not in the mood. i think California has affected me, too... people here (in Monterey, at least) just do not dress up like people in the South. i rarely see people with a really full on face of makeup during the day! i have noticed that most people are less concerned with how their nails look than with their face and hair. some makeup perfectionists would think nothing of leaving the house with massively chipped polish, but would never leave without at least some foundation!




how about you guys? do you have to put on makeup, do your hair, and have perfect nails in order to head out the door? i hope you all are having a fantastic weekend! Ria :)

  1. I used to not leave the house without foundation and blush at least, but I confess, I've been a lackey the last couple of months! The horror of going to physical therapy early in the morning has made me less concerned about what I look like there, lol, those poor people!! I won't do chipped nails tho...that's like wearing those hose with big holes in them ala Miley Cyrus. ew. wrong. Although I often go out with just one hand done, or seven different colors.

  2. I have to have at least mascara on or I look horrid lol most the time my make up is completely put on if I go out in public but sometimes its just mascara :) but I always have to have my nails perfect lol which is kind of dumb because more ppl probably notice a face vs nails lol oh well :)

    1. it's funny because i used to be psychotic about always having on eyeliner... i always said if there was a fire i'd put on eyeliner before leaving the house! now i just don't care... i think i've swung too far in the other direction :D
