Now you ladies know that I write about MY beauty and fashion as opposed to EVERYONE ELSE'S version because I am NOT a girly girl. I tend to not like purses and shoes and makeup and all that sort of thing as I am generally interested in less feminine things. I recently wrote a post about artificial nails asking what we thought about the lengths that some women tend to wear those nails.
Well two days ago I got my own nails done with some acrylics and I must say I am really liking the effect right now. The last time I had my nails done was in 2004 so that was SIX years ago. I have very ugly shaped nails in my opinion and they peel and do not grow long at all. I wanted to see if wearing some longer tips would make me feel more feminine and I had been contemplating getting this done since December. I finally took a deep breath and went to the mall and had it done.
The process cost $23 and I left a $4 tip so my total came to $27 for my new nails. I asked to get them short so that I would not feel too uncomfortable and not be able to carry out my daily tasks.
On the day that I got the nails I felt very awkward and my fingers hurt because I have sensitive skin. I immediately regretted getting the nails done because I was not sure if I would be able to work at all.
I woke up the next day and the pain was gone and I was able to get about my day, getting ready, typing and eating. It does take a little adjustment but I love the look and it was worth the money I paid.
