Paying Big Bucks for a Manicure at Local Salon? Watch Out for This
If you get a manicure every two or three weeks, or even once a year, there's something you should be aware of.
My "dip" nails cost me $50 plus a $10 tip every three weeks, and I have to admit, sometimes I wonder, "am I worth all this pampering to have great-looking nails?" You bet I am. Taking care of yourself is one of the first rules of feeling happy and good about the people around you.
Pampering oneself, no matter your gender, should be part of your mental lightheartedness, which takes you away from the stress of work, family, or friends.
One thing I always do when I go to a new nail salon is look around at the cleanliness of the business.
One time I walked into a nail studio which could get me in right away. I quickly realized why, as the place was dirty and there was dust everywhere. It gave me the heebie- jeebies (if you don't know what that means, look it up here.) I immediately walked out.
But perhaps even more important than cleanliness is having a good look at your manicurists nails. Would you want someone to be working on your nails, including cleanliness and hygiene, if their nails are a disaster, all broken, nails chipping, paint half off? Not me.
If someone I am doing business with doesn't take the time to care for their own nails, how important do you think it is for them to take care of yours? It's a pet peeve I have with any professionals I deal with.
For instance, your doctor tells you not to smoke, but you know they do. Don't even get me going on a hairstylist who goes to work with their hair a mess.
Is it just me, or do you love to get what you pay for? Yeah, that's what I thought.
