I must admit, I’ve never had a manicure. Ever. Not that I haven’t wanted to. I just cannot bring myself to have someone paint my not so amazing nails. Especially when I can do it quite fine on my own and they generally are trashed two days hence anyway, given the gardening and housework I do. So, I just cannot see spending the money.
I have however had a pedicure. But, only twice. It was awesome, but $60.00 is just a bit rich for me to have someone rub my feet and paint my toesies. I could probably give my daughter $20.00 to do that! LOL!
Nail art has really come a long way, from the … ahem… trashy decorated nails, to what I think are some of the prettiest and most unique styles I’ve ever seen and there are a lot of great tutorials on how to get different effects.
Nail Nerd is a super cool site, with amazing nail art and nice tutorials on how to achieve the different looks! I thought this one in particular was so beautiful!
