Manicure Monday ~ Jessica Au Natural

Wedding manicure

Last week I shared with you some of the ways I care for my nails outside painting them. It is always annoying for me when my nail chips or breaks off in the corner or feels so weak, limp and lifeless. I have had so many times that my nail breaks off on the side but closer to the middle than the tops and if I get caught into something this is extremely painful I tell you. It’s never fun to have your nail break off at the worst point and not have the right tools to take care of that. I will be sharing with you an addition to the tools that I use to care for my nails outside what I shared in my last Manicure post and that is toenail clippers.

This gone weekend I went to the Village St Davids’ Resort in North Wales where we had booked a spa weekend for a hen do. I knew that I wanted to have a massage (which I can tell you was absolutely awesome) and a manicure to get me ready for the wedding this coming weekend. Though I knew I had wanted to have a manicure done, I actually did not know what colour I was going to go for until after I had bought my shoes for the wedding. I will be sharing with y’all some time in the next few days or weeks after the wedding. Knowing my shoe colour was half the battle, picking the colour to match the shoes was the other battle. Most people choose nail colour to go with the dress, no not me! I wanted my shoes and my manicure as well as pedicure to match and that’s where Jessica’s Au natural comes in.

Before visiting the St David’s Spa I had never heard of the Jessica brand later on the Jessica Au Natural nail polish (£10.50) but when I saw it I knew exactly what I wanted and praying to the heavens this manicure and pedicure last me up to the day after the wedding. The Jessica Au Natural custom nail colour is such a beautiful colour and I think it looks so good on me. I wish my camera would start working already but it’s not to be so I am using my iphone 5c camera for the photos so excuse me if they are not the greatest and do not do the custom nail polish justice.

What do you think of the colour?

What dress do you think I am pairing with this nail colour for the wedding?

I mentioned earlier that I wanted to share an addition to my toe nail care collection and it’s no other than the toenail clipper I was sent for review by the lovely people at Clyppi. Prior to them contacting me I had never heard of the company so I researched (googled) and this is what I found.

Clyppi is a brand founded in 2013 to fill the void that was lack of good quality, great performance and looks good nail clippers for men & women. I know my dad always complains about how flimsy all our nail clippers are and I am sure he will love this clipper as I am adding it to the father’s day basket.

What I loved about these clippers is how they fit comfortably in your hand, makes it easier to do your toenails and surprisingly for me they cut even nicely. I have had a nail clipper break in my hands because my toenails are that stronger so to have one which can withstand that is awesome and a great product to have. I definitely would recommend this clipper as a family clipper not just for me but for all as I will definitely be using this with my dad and the rest of the family when I visit.

You can purchase your very own strong, good quality, does an excellent job clipper from their website or from Amazon.

    I love beige color too and I use it on my fingernails. My toenails get the brighter and colorful nail polishes.

    I love how beautiful and subtle this shade is! This is the kind of polish I would wear every day.

    You’ve just reminded me that I have a pretty pink and neon orange Jessica polishes that I’ve never used. This is a really pretty colour, I really like the au natural look with a bit of a twist 🙂

    It looks like a great clipper and my nails can definitely use it! I need to get me one of these!

  5. May 19, 2015 / 9:12 am

    That is a beautiful color! I prefer simplicity when it comes to my nails, too.

    • May 19, 2015 / 8:09 pm

      Thank you, I think simplicity is the way to go with nails

    The toenail clipper is something I need as I always end up with unevenly cut nails. This can really help me in getting better results.

    I totally need a spa day. Not to mention a day to relax. Love that color of polish goes with everything.

  11. May 18, 2015 / 8:06 pm

    The clipper sounds perfect to go along with a pedicure kit. I do like the nail color you have there too.

    I love that light color! Would you believe that I have never had a manicure? I think it might be time to change that up.

  13. May 18, 2015 / 2:58 pm

    I really like the simplicity of that color, especially for spring and summer. I get manicures all the time, I hate when the polish starts to chip!

  14. May 18, 2015 / 2:53 pm

    I love this nail polish colour. And I’m so jealous of your spa weekend. I desperately need one.

    I am loving that nail polish color. It is light and perfect for spring. I might pick a color like that the next time I go to have my nails done.

    I definitely could use a new nail clipper-my toenails are horrible —and it is almost impossible to clip them down. I am hoping that this nail clipper will work!

    • May 18, 2015 / 8:35 am

      My toe nails were bad I was dreading the spa weekend because of it but was happy this clipper arrived in time to be used

  18. May 18, 2015 / 7:49 am

    I love a good spa weekend and in desperate need of one. Nowadays I prefer my nails to be kept short too as it’s more practical, although they still grow pretty long when I let them.

    • May 18, 2015 / 8:33 am

      Now that I have experienced a spa weekend I want to do more

  19. May 18, 2015 / 7:10 am

    We’ve been to that St. Davids resort before, have nothing but great things to say about it after our visit last Summer!

    Oh I love those colors! My nails are super short so I never paint them but this would be a great color for my daughter.

    • May 18, 2015 / 6:49 am

      I am trying to keep my nails short and clean, I am sure your daughter would love this colour too.

  21. May 18, 2015 / 6:25 am

    I love those Au Natural colors. I don’t like too bright colors on my hands but I do love them on my toes.

    • May 18, 2015 / 6:48 am

      I am loving this colour big time even though usually I am a bright colours kind of girl lol

  22. May 18, 2015 / 6:23 am

    That Jessica Au Natural color is GORGEOUS! I’ll definitely go and check that Clyppi Toenail Clipper out. I’m actually in need of a new one <3
