Treat yo’ self: fancy-schmancy spa manicure or pedicure?
Well, the dream scenario, if I was *really* treating myself, I’d get both done, hahaha! And I’d be in robe and Keanu Reeves would be feeding me warm chocolate chip cookies. But if I had to pick just one I’d go with pedicure, since it would last longer.
Short or long fingernails?
Short please! I cannot deal with the sound (or the feel) of my fingertips clack-clack-clacking on a keyboard. Also, I swear the *second* they get just a touch too long, I start obsessing over cutting my nails. I can’t think about anything else. It’s also a practical thing, keeping them so short. Nothing gets stuck underneath them when I cook, garden or play outside with Connor, and I don’t have to worry about them breaking.
Base coat or top coat?
Top coat, baby! Essie Gel Couture ALL. DAY. LONG.
Regularly scheduled manicure maintenance: at-home or salon?
At-home, even before pre-pandemic times. I’m crazy picky about manicures, they’re easy for me to do at home, and woo hoo, I save a little money by doing ’em myself!
Glitter or cream finish?
I do love me some bling, but I’m going with cream, since it’s easier to remove.
Cuticles: trim ’em or leave ’em alone?
Leave ’em alone!
Faux press-on nails or nail polish stickers?
Both have come a loooong way in the last few years, I gotta admit. I’ll go with the nail polish stickers.
Nude nail polish or dark nail polish?
It’s fall, let’s do the dark!
Over the top nail art: Y or N?
I think it looks really cool and would love to try it at least once, but N for now. No patience for the process, plus my kids (plural because one girl child, one lady cat!) would TRASH all that fancy artwork in a hot second, and that would break my heart.
