For the past 10 years I’ve gotten pedicures and manicures once a month. I used to get my fingernails buffed but was finally persuaded to try the new gel nail polish. I had been avoiding it for the simple fact that I was afraid I would become addicted and have to get my nails done every two weeks. I was correct in my assumption. I do usually get 3 weeks out of but there is sometimes the issue of finding the time and justifying the cost that I struggle with. Last night I had an event and couldn’t go with chipped nails so I soaked off the gel polish and thought I would just go back to natural to save some time and money. That lasted an entire 12 hours. I couldn’t stand them. I missed my shiny gel nails to much. I realized today getting my manicure and pedicure how uplifting the process is to my spirits. It feels so good to be pampered and massaged. When you leave your feet and hands look so beautiful. I feel amazing and more confident I noticed. Worth the small price to pay, I just need to remind myself that I’m worth it!
