So I am probably the one girl in the world that HATES manicures and pedicures I think that they hurt and they don’t last. The only reason that I go to the salon is for girl time and conversation until now.
I moved to a new city for a job about a year ago, and literally have 3 girlfriends, it is very sad actually. One of my friends is a busy mother of two boys and I typically only get to see her on the weekends for a manicure/pedicure or the occasional shopping spree. I must admit that I really more starved for the conversation and girl time than a mani/ pedi but, she told me that she found a new product that would make my nails shiny and perfect, and would last for 2 weeks or more. I must admit I was very skeptical because my nails literally chip in 2 days and I am constantly painting over them for that uneven bubbly look that is O so not attractive!
One Saturday morning we arrived at the nail place I knew that I had fallen in love. They not only had a TV that was playing Keeping Up with the Kardashians but they have the ability to hook up the microphone for a karaoke sing along, a total A plus in my book. The lady showed me the colors and I was a little disappointed with the lack of color choices but, I found one that I liked and settled in to watch my show and chat with my friend. I asked the lady what was so different about this polish that made is so special? She told me that it is a new technology that combines the polish with the permanence of gels and that it is chip free and long wearing, the application process alone was an art form. The nail polish is cured with an LED light and literally dries instantly, and leaves your nails shiny and chip free for two weeks. I am so in love with this new polish that I don’t have to be swayed in any way to go and get my nails done. As for the lack of color choices, this link shows you how you can mix and match them to get just the perfect color to match any season or trend.
