Two-hour Vacation

by Jackie

The harsh winter weather and a hectic professional life has me longing for an island vacation.  Unfortunately, I’m not hopping on a cruise ship anytime soon, but I have found a way to relax and take a breather.  A few months ago, one of my girlfriends introduced me to my mini-getaway location five minutes away from my house — Sassy Nail Salon & Spa in the Takoma section of DC.  Twice a month, we get together and let the stress melt away while getting a gel manicure and/or pedicure.  For a couple of blissful hours, I forget about the 9-to-5 and hang out with my friend.


I became instantly obsessed with CND Shellac in "Rosebud." The subtle color is professional and pretty. Gel manicures typically last me a little more than two weeks with little to no chipping!

…and they were all yellow…

My roommate Jenn and I were playing at-home salon last night, while watching Denzel Washington smoothly slay his enemies in The Book of Eli.  Though I love being pampered at the nail salon, I am not big on spending money.  So every now and then, Jenn and I will swap nail lacquer over movies and girl talk.  My latest discovery in her collection is this happy shade of yellow — the absolute best color in the world.  I love the way the color looks against my complexion and that it’s bright without being neon.

Sally Hansen's "Mellow Yellow" is just too cute!
