Last Fall I was feeling pretty exhausted. I was working a lot, stressed with the upcoming holiday season, and really just worn out. My counselor suggested I find some “me time” and I wasn’t sure what I wanted that to look like. I decided to go get my nails done and try the “dip manicure” that I had been hearing about. I had it done and have stuck with it ever since! I don’t spend much time at the hair salon or getting my lashes done, but I have decided that getting my nails done is time I’m willing to spend. It’s my one hour of me-time where I am forced to do nothing – I can’t even play on my phone! I love that my nails are always photo ready and it just feels good to look down and see them pretty and polished. Scroll down to see some of the colors and designs I’ve done in the last few months and read all about dip manicures.
I have always loved doing my nails and the confidence boost of having great looking nails. My mom and my grandma have always had beautiful nails and I remember as early as second grade saving up my money to buy nail polish from the Avon catalog. My nails have always been a point of pride and so I’ve kept them polished for my whole life. As an adult that looked like gel polish every week, but the longest I could keep my nails looking good was about 4 days. Last year I started going to the nail salon to get dip manicures and it’s been life changing. My nails always look good and I only worry about them about once a month. I get so many questions about the dip manicures so today I’m sharing what they are, how they work, what they cost, why I love them and more!
