Life has been hectic. Work here, university there and somewhere in between all that I've kept my social life going. Unfortunately some things have suffered, like my blog and my tv watching and my book reading. With all of these crazy things happening lately I've really appreciated my down time and taken extra time just to allow myself to relax. For example, I've found it really hard to keep up with doing my own nails at least once a week and I've been hating how they've been looking. This weekend I was working all weekend and didn't even have time to see Alex (a.k.a the partner) !!! So instead of the money I would've been spending on doing fun things with him I invested in some "treat yo self" time and boy was it fun.
One of my friends has been going to this nail salon close to me for years and they always look fantastic so I finally decided to go and get them done. I've had gel done before but never acrylic, people have always told me that they ruin your nails, but after the damage I experienced through press-on nails and gel, I though how much more damage could they be? Also I've heard that if you go to the right place your nails will be fine, so I made sure that I went to a good place.
The night before my appointment I was on Pinterest and Instagram just staring at nail pictures trying to decide what to get. I had NO idea. I felt so silly, and when I got to the salon I was just like, "PINK!".
Envious Nails and Beauty is the name of the salon and I felt very relaxed and taken care of by the ladies there, it wasn't scary at all (not that I thought it would be). If you're in Brisbane, Australia, I would say it is definitely a place to check out. Here's their Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/EnviousNailsBeauty?fref=ts.
I can't wait to rebook and go back, still have no idea what to get but I'm sure I'll know in the moment.
What's your favourite way to get your nails done?
