Brigitte Bardot Bangs New Nails and a day at the salon

My Bangs Inspiration

All photos you can click on to go to the site that they are from.

I am feeling in the mood to go get me some bangs and get my nails done. I am talking a beautiful french manicure on some snazzy acrylic nails. I have not had acrylic since I worked for Corporate America and wore a suit every day with my fabulous array of stilettos. That was way back in 2005, I took those nails off and never looked back. I have super thin nails and will pick my cuticles and not even know I am doing it. It hurts. When I have my artificial nails on that is not a problem. I feel like getting them on for the holidays and see if I want to continue with them. My hands look like old lady hands with such short nails.  Well I am an old lady your thinking?

Are you about to tell me that they will ruin my nails? My nails are already bad, that is not even a concern. That is not how I roll. Bangs are on the agenda too. I have always cut my own hair, always. The only time I go to the salon is for a bang cut. I HATE going to the salon, I HATE going to get my nails done too. It just bores me but I am going to do it today.

I have always been a Brigitte Bardot fan. I have loved her hair style since I was a little girl I usually wear my hair up to so I like a messy sort of bang. Here are my inspiration pictures for today.

She is beautiful and still is today quite the humanitarium!

I could do this with a black headband.

Here is my before picture glammin it up for an evening :-)

Okay well I have to get ready, my daughter is coming over soon so I better find a salon for my hair and nails..  Wish me luck!

  1. Brigette Bardot is the hotness! I can't wait to see your new look! (publish the photo with the bangs!!!)

  2. Love it! She's one of my favorites, too. However, I think Sophia Loren is my absolute favorite. She is the epitome of classiness and sexiness.

  3. Oh, don't remind me. My teenage daughter is driving me nuts begging me for bangs! LOL! :D

    Anyhow, you look amazing! And Bridget is beautiful.

  4. How fun! Hope you enjoy your day out.

  5. Good luck! Can't wait to see the after pics.

  6. You look a whole lot like Brigitte Bardot! I hope you enjoyed your day of pampering! Can't wait to see the after pics!

  7. Brigette Bardot is beautiful! I cannot wait to see your new look.

  8. I love the look of bangs, and have over the years had them, then not. Thinking again.. it is time.

    Did you post your new look?

  9. I have yet to post it!! I will soon, thank you!!

  10. Brigitte Bardot has been a top style icon of mine for years.. LOVE her hair- you did a great job! I need to take more time on my hair! :))
