What I asked for vs. what I got, part 4 💛

I think yours look very nice!
I don't think it looks bad. Unless you didn't want the round shape that's about as good as you can expect a regular nail tech to get. Most Instagram pics aren't realistic goals unless you want to spend $100 or more per mani
I think it’s spot on. I did want the almond shape. The only thing I changed with the design is the topcoat. I chose glossy instead of matte.
Ah, sorry. I misunderstood and thought you weren't happy with it and I didn't understand why because it looks great!
Yeah a huge amount of the "what I got" posts are negative these days. It's really nice to see a positive one.
Haha no worries at all! I’m doing something like a series with this title. My very first one was horrendous lol but the last 3 have been amazing because of the girl I go to now.
Wow I just checked out the "2 different salons post" and that's crazy how bad that first salon was! How did you find the second place, by recommendation? I've never had mine professionally done before
The first one was when I went out of town. It was ridiculous! The next ones are from a local nail studio I found on Yelp. I usually do my nails myself because I don’t trust anyone touching them lol.
Oohh I like your series of these posts!
These ones look nice 🌴
Looks like the picture used a matte top coat but otherwise pretty dead on (besides the shape obviously)
Yes! I chose glossy topcoat.. I’ll put on a matte one when I get bored of the glossy lol.
Can I ask how did your tech do the ombré? I’ve played with various methods but curious to know how the properly trained do it. So cute btw!
This is gel so she used a gel ombré brush as well as a makeup sponge. Doing ombré with regular nail polish is 100 times easier IMO lol.
Thanks! I’ll have to try that 😊
I like yours better!
Awe, thanks 😊
I love what u got, very tasteful & bright
Thank you 🤗
These are great.
I'm so glad you love them because I was hella confused staring for a while like what's bad about this Mani?? lol It looks great with the shape and gloss coat. She did that. 💛
I do love them! I guess I should’ve said that in the title not to confuse people lol I thought the 💛 was enough
I think it should be enough, girl. 😂 Like I wonder if it said "what I asked for vs. what I got. 💛 Them!" I would have still looked for problems because I personally assume the worst now due to so many of these being negative. I'm so excited to see a happy one, though. Your inspo was cute but I actually like yours a bit more, tbh. ✨ Have a wonderful day!
