So I’m totally not a regular manicure-getter. In fact, I have never had a manicure in twenty-seven years of my life… until today!
But now… I may be hooked. It’s just like the massage thing: never went until I got health benefits which cover massages, decided to give it a try, and loved it! (I’ve still only had one massage, but I do think I’d love more). This afternoon I was a bit bored since my shopping trip got cancelled due to horribly bad weather (super-strong wind, flurries of actual snow, and tons of rain). So I was out, and I saw this cute salon that I’ve never been in, and their window said they did manicures.
I walked in and was like: Hi… do you have to pre-book an appointment for a manicure? And the answer was yes. But then she said I could have one right then, if I had the time. Of course I did! And I chose an awesome fuschia by OPI called Dim Sum Plum:
My nails are pretty short as I’d just trimmed them, but she managed to buff the edges to be very smooth and slightly curved. Also, I was so worried because I have this aversion to emery boards: just seeing someone using one gives me the goosebumps, and I can’t handle using them on my own nails. But my worry was totally unnecessary: she used this awesome buffer-y thing that was super soft and not at all scrape-y.
Verdict: love it! Totally a wonderful treat. Plus they told me if anything happened to my nails within the next few days, just call back and they’d fix it for free. Sweet!
