Nailed it

Yeah, so, I am completely amazed.

I got my nails done a week ago, and they have not clipped. At all! They look as good as they when I walked out of the salon.

A week ago, good buddy DH took pity on me and agreed to get a pedicure and manicure. I get mani and pedis every once in a while, but I usually do my own nails. But now, with this pregnant belly in the way, it’s more difficult to do my toes, so I asked DH if she’d like to talk shit at a salon instead of over brunch.

DH: “I’ll go with you, but only if we get the gel polish.”

Me: “I don’t know what that is, but OK.”

Turns out, it’s a special nail polish that is dried with a UV light between coats. The polish dries in a matter of minutes, which means there is no smudging your polish when getting the money out of your wallet to pay for the manicure. I had never heard of it before. I guess I need to start reading more girly magazines.

So anyway, I had my nails done at Salon Belle Linda on California Street. It’s a week later, and my nails still look awesome. See?

I figured it is my duty as a chick to share this revelation with you. Gentlemen, I apologize for the chickness of this post.
