Cheap Free Manicures!
Do your own nails girls! Now I know some of you out there are brillant. You can do it all! Cook, clean, have kids and manage a day job all at the same time. And you’re going to tell me that you can’t manage painting your nails as well as someone else does? This is such an easy thing to cut out of your budget. With some practice you can easily manage your own polish changes. I’m not advocating you start pedicuring your toenails and dealing with ingrowns (eww!). I’m not even so great at the cutting and filing part. So what I do is get a mani/pedi once a month and then I just do the polish changes. It’s so do-able with the added bonus of exercising your balance by using the hand you don’t write with. It’s like a brain exercise! So go pick up some nail polish at the local drug store.
This season I’ve been all about lighter colors…well more than last season when a day didn’t go by where I didn’t have gothic, black nails! These colors are fantastic.
Some advice though, if you are going to listen to me and attempt to do your nails yourself, OPI brushes which are supposed to be easier to paint with, in my opinion are too big and make it harder. I choose Essie brushes anyday. But OPI usually has a better color selection. Quite a Catch 22…You be the judge!
Black is classic! (Except that our nemesis L.C. on the Hills likes it. Ugh we hate her!)
