As I mentioned earlier, I got married last month. My coworkers got together and paid for me to have a French manicure and pedicure for the wedding. Of course, I wanted my feet and hands to look pretty, so I had the gel nails put on my hands.
Well, it’s been a month now and they were due for a touchup, so last week I had my MTO at the nail salon. It was the first time I had the refills and I am really enjoying looking at my hands. I feel much better about myself, not to mention all the compliments.
Even with all that positive feedback, I keep going back and forth on whether or not I will keep them. Then I remember, it’s a small investment in myself, with a real big return!
So, for now I will keep them on because I have enjoyed going to the nail salon and getting that treatment. I feel I am taking care of me. I used to bite my nails and they always looked so ugly. Now, my husband and kids are enjoying seeing my hands and my daughter, Sofia, will ask me to scratch her back while I am putting her to bed.
So interesting how everyone in my family has benefitted from this situation!
It just proves that old saying that when mommy is happy, everyone is happy!
