My nails experiences

I have to confess I am not crazy about going to the nail salon not only I hate someone poking and pulling my fingertips but the time it takes for the technician to do manicure and pedicure.

I went to do my nails today. Why? I guess I want to feel like things are going back to normal. I want to see the light at the end of end of tunnel and somehow I associated doing my nails with going back to normal life pre pandemic.

I guess because everything was close for more than a year so when I heard that finally hair salon s and nail salon will be open I jump to make an appointment.

I walk into the nail salon and was surprised to see it empty. I thought it was going to be a line up from here to the moon.

Anyways I sat in the chair and did not know what color or style to do. That’s another things there is so much to choose from.

I chose a French manicure with the acrylic tip. My nails were too short so that was the best look.

Did I told I don’t like to do my nails? I usually cut them my self and just add shine.

Now I have to get used to this acrylic tip. As long as I can type and cook and clean we are fine.

I chose a nice blue color for my pedicure.

After an hour and I am not exaggerating we were finish.

Time to pay.

I had no idea prices were so high like I said I don’t go often.

To my surprise the total was $100 including tip.

The good thing is my nails look better than in a long time. The bad I am short $100.

I am not complaining, I believe it’s important to pamper yourselve.

Next time, I will find another way to pamper myself like a good dinner in a fancy restaurant or purchase a nice purse or shoes.

So that’s was my experience for today.

Keep living and enjoying the little pleasures of life .
