On Saturday, June 22nd Metropolis at Metrotown kicked off “Get Polished,” the mall’s summer nail polish workshop series. This was the first of three workshops, called “Find What You Love,” took place over Saturday and Sunday. Shoppers got a chance to sit down, relax, and get their nails did!
There were many adorable mother-daughter participants who watched the step-by-step video while carefully applying their own polish. The end result was a beautiful chevron pattern! Many were already happy with their first coat of purple polish. Just take a look at cute little Sophie showing off her painted thumb with the help of her mom, Justine.
Because there were so many layers to the chevron pattern, a super fast drying top coat called Seche Vite was used. And let me tell you now, this product is amazing! It seriously only takes less than a minute for your nails to completely dry; they look extra shiny too. And want to know how the chevron pattern is done? Quite simply, once the base layer is pained on, stick two reinforcements (yes, your good ol’ school supplies) to form a heart shape and polish on your second layer. I can’t speak for every stylish woman reading this post, but I for sure learned something new.
