I used to prefer the au naturel look - still kinda do. I hated spending money on something that would only last a few days. And then there's that whole waiting period where you wait for all your nails to grow out to the same length so that you can get a decent manicure. And that hardly ever happens. Nails break.
But then I got my nails done three times in two weeks. First for my cousin's Auf Ruf, then for his wedding, and then for the Shabbos Sheva Brachos.
And now I'm hooked.
Like almost every other Jewish woman, it's become my Friday afternoon ritual.
There's something about that little bottle of Essie that makes me happy.
Wicked, A-List, Ballet Slippers, Flirt, Fancy Delancey, Picket Fence, Marshmallow, Bahama Mama... Just a few of my favorite things! (feel free to suggest more!)
Colors really do influence the way you feel. Try Wicked - you'll feel it.
My friend Rosie said I looked Lubie when I wore Fishnet Stockings.
I go with Waltz when I'm trying to fit in at Yeshivish chasunahs.
I notice that when I go dark or bright, people notice.
And while that may not be so tznius,
it's a whole lot of fun ;)
