Don’t Forget About Your Hands

There is evidence that human beings have been manicuring their nails for over 4000 years and for good reason – to keep them looking clean, healthy, and attractive. Getting a manicure is one step you don’t want to overlook when preparing for your photoshoot with Belle Boudoir. Inevitably your hands will show in several of the poses Cheryl will help you create and you want to ensure that they look as put together as the rest of you does.

When it comes to choosing a color for your session, it is important to pick a color that is neutral so that your nails will be sure to flatter any outfit you decide to wear. I know it is hard to steer away from that new shade of glittery fuchsia nail polish. Especially these days when your manicurist can bedazzle your index fingers with gold bow shaped jewels and put a navy chevron print on each of the remaining nails. But as you know, we are not guaranteed to love the trends we do today twenty years from now. And we here at Belle Boudoir want to ensure that you will love and cherish the images from your session for the rest of your life. So take our advice and go for a neutral nail polish. Even if it’s just for the day.
