Our wedding turned out to be a big DIY fest. Not that we set out to have it that way, it just seem to happen that we are surrounded by uber talented and creative friends that wanted to contribute to our wedding and so many things we did just seemed natural to do ourselves. And yes, I did my own makeup on the day as well. I will share more about that soon!
As my hands were still busy working in the lead up to the wedding and I am a little bit particular about what I put on my body, I decide to do my own mani and pedi. That way I could do it nice and fresh the night before the wedding and also pick my favourite nail products.
For the colour I chose Sienna Byron Bay, a toxin free, high quality polish brand. I use them in my pro kit and they totally live up to my quality standards. Sienna Byron Bay produces their products as eco-friendly as possible. All their Australian made nail polish is produced using a professional, reduced toxin formula that is as clean as you can get. They also only use Cruelty-free, Vegan components.
I fell hard for the colour "Aura" which I used on finger and toe nails for the wedding. It's a beautiful sheer pearly white. (On honeymoon I used "Utopia" a stunning pastel mint green colour, that Dave was really over the moon about, good to have a designer husband!)
To prep my nails properly I used the brand new Weleda Nail Care Pen and Cuticle Softener Pen. Both contain organic pomegranate seed oil, which is extremely high in antioxidants and promotes cell regenaration. The nail care pen is a staple in my bag now, also for days when I am not wearing any polish. It smells delicious, but not overpowering. The Pomegranate Regenarating Hand Cream is another winner in the range. It absorbs very quickly and doesn't leave the hands greasy at all. It's a really great anti aging hand treatment as the antioxidant-rich, organic pomegranate seed oil helps to protect your hands from environmental influences that can cause the appearance of age spots. The Cuticle Softener Pen, really made my manicure look professional and super neat. How genius is Weleda ? I haven't seen any natural or organic manicure products like these on the market. They were a dream to use, toxin free and really worked a treat. They will be repurchased for my makeup kit as well.
