One of these days...

So here's the deal. I'm basically obsessed with the idea of a gel manicure. I have no idea why. But I must get one. And soon. The problem is, I cannot seem to spend $30+ on myself right now. We are still trying to get settled in and bills are coming, {lots at a time} whether we're ready or not. Just last week we had a leak in one of our water drains and there goes a couple hundred dollars, then I got sick, which caused Dr. bills and medicine...etc. Welcome to the real world, right? Priorities. Got to love them. Guess this means I'm growing up. Bills over manicures. Lame.

Have you had a gel manicure?


  1. I've had the shellac manicure and I loved it - except for one part. It took forever to put on and take off. I think the place I went was particularly slow though because I haven't talked to anyone else who had it take quite as long (it took them over an hour to put it on). I almost lost my mind I was so bored waiting for them to soak it off. I had them just put a regular manicure back on after the first time because after 20 minutes soaking it off, I couldnt stand the thought of waiting another hour to put it back on.

    If you can find a quick place or if you're more patient than I am, give it a try sometime.

  2. I would love a manicure right now of any kind… too bad with all of those cleaning products at work, nothing seems to stick for long!
