You know what it's time for right? Weddings and that means wedding manis! I'm a "member" of the Preen.Me VIP Program and I had the chance to collaborate with Preen.Me and James Allen Rings to create wedding inspired manis using their replica engagement ring nail charms. I kinda have a thing for miniatures so I'm totally in love with these little charms! Ready for some pic spam?! Ok I warned you.
See, I told you pic spam! Aren't they the cutest lil things ever? I received 2 nail charms, both made of 14k white and gold and real diamond. My nails have never been fancier lol Now I do admit they are a little larger than I prefer for my small nail beds but they are so cute that I got over it lol
For the base I used Bliss Kiss Simply Smooth Base Coat, I used 3 coats. It's not meant to be a sheer polish but I've used it a bunch of times to get this look. I love the sheer pink! I got the red rose water decals from ebay and topped it all off with my fav top coat, HK Girl from Glisten and Glow.
Along with my pics on instagram, I posted a little mini sort of fan fiction story to go along with my mani. Are you guys ready to geek out and be super embarrassed for me? Haha! If you're a Vampire Diaries fan then you will love this! If not, just feel free to laugh because I'm totally indulging myself and writing about my one true love, Damon Salvatore swoooooonnnnnn lol We meet our couple on a crisp Autumn night…
Always being one for flair, Damon filled the main room of his home The Salvatore Mansion with hundreds of red roses, and beeswax candles, and lit the massive fireplace. He waited anxiously for Angel to arrive, well as anxious as an 176 yr old Vampire could be, nothing much phases Damon anymore. He greeted her at the door and took her by the hand, with a sparkle in his eye he lead her into the main room.
Damon stops in front of the fireplace and gathers her hands in his as their eyes connect … “I’m old,” she giggles as he smirks “I’m old and tired of living this life while feeling like I’m an incomplete Man.” His lips twitch as he calls himself a Man. “I never imagined the thing that would complete me would be a Human girl, a beautiful, inspiring, but a little bit stupid Vampire-loving girl.” She tilted her head, “I’d say I’m pretty smart for loving this Vampire.” As she smiled Damon dropped to one knee and the realization of this moment dawned across her face.
He pulled a little red box from his pocket and as he opened it he began. “Angel, with you I am whole. You are my missing piece that justifies my existence in this world, the one good and true part of my life that keeps me alive. The piece that helps me to be better. Would you do me the extraordinary honor of completing me and becoming my Wife forever. Will you marry me?” She stared down into his burning glacier blue eyes that ripped into her soul, and the world stopped spinning. There was no air, no sound but a loud pulse that must have been her heart exploding from her chest. She dropped to her knees and whispered “Yes, forever, I’ll have you forever.”
Weeks later and after much celebrating (wink wink), Damon and Angel began to plan their wedding.
Damon said “Why don’t we skip this whole parade and get right to the important part, the honeymoon!” as he wagged his eyebrows. Angel considered, “While tempting Damon, I think we should do this the real way, the human way.” Damon agreed but “Only if you go to a little town that has the BEST clothes if you want to be able to fit in with us Vampires. I guarantee you will find a wedding dress fit to marry a stud like me.”
Even though Damon was completely full of himself, Angel knew it to be 100% accurate. Paris was the only place where she could possibly find something to wear to look as beautiful as him. She remembered this little conversation as she stood perched on a box while the Master Seamstress at Chanel wrapped her up in exquisite lace.
Her engagement ring sparkled up at her as the dozens of red roses perfumed the room. Damon had them sent over as a reminder of their engagement night, she blushed red to match them. Her best friends Bonnie and Caroline burst into a fit of giggles guessing what she was thinking about, they may have read the card he wrote. “Stop fidgeting!” the seamstress yelled. What a strange life I’ve wandered into she mused...
I'll be posting the next "chapters" with my next manis using these nail charms! Probably over the next couple of weeks. Are you a Vampire Diaries fan? Team Damon or Stefan?
