Every few weeks I go to the nail salon to get my nails done. Earlier this year I was turned on to gel nail polish. Dealing with paper and washing my hands as much as I do in my job, regular nail polish lasted about 5 minutes before getting a chip or wearing off. With the gel polish, I can go 2-3 weeks before the color shows wear. It is a miracle really!
This weekend, I went in for my regular appointment. I like the sparkly polish and usually go for a glittery pink or brown. Sometimes I get really adventurous and have my nails done in super glittery purple or dark blue.
Tracy, who does my nails, always tries to get me to venture out – hence the purple and blue – with the colors I choose. That is how this happened…
Yah, that’s right, I paid money to have my nails painted green. Over the last few days, I’m getting a bit more used to it, and there have actually been times when I like it. The 7 year old girls in my class “LOVVVVVEEEE” them. On the other hand, every so often the green catches my eye, and for a fleeting second it looks like I have gangrene of the fingernails.
Oh the price we girls have to pay for fashion!
