This summer, I have had many reasons to treat myself to a nice manicure to strive to look my best. What all started in May as a graduation treat to myself to get acrylic nails has turned into a serious addiction!
When I went to the nail salon in May, it was an adventure with a purpose. One of my best friends was about to be proposed to, so we were taking her to touch up her nails for all the photos when she had a diamond on her finger. I had the thought that with graduation coming up the next week, I would just get the acrylic nails so they would last long enough to still look good as I walked across the stage.
Soon enough, our first few weeks of leadership consultant training and convention in Las Vegas were around the corner! I convinced myself that in order to perform at my top level of professionalism, I needed to get my nails done once more. Why not, right? A fill-in is financially the smart decision. However, as I returned home from Vegas and had some time to relax, I found myself again getting my nails done.
Now that I am on the road and officially in formal recruitment season, I can’t say enough how much of an advocate I have become of acrylic nails. I have always had such a bad habit of nail biting, and this has been the perfect way to stop! There are many other reasons that I’m such a strong supporter. When my nails are long, clean and polished, I feel so much more confident; I feel pretty. I also believe that I’m more productive when I have manicured nails because it makes typing so much more fun.
Generally speaking, a manicure and set of acrylics will last me around 2 weeks. Is it financially worth it to get my nails done twice a month? I would have to say so! The benefits are endless.
