Nothing like a FRESH manicure.
But to be honest – I find the entire process grueling. There’s a reason why they say “like watching paint dry” – sorry, but I literally can’t. If I go to the salon, I have two podcasts ready to go to help pass the time and I prefer to get gel so it can dry instantly.
I will say that things have gotten better since Covid hit – nail wise, I mean. My weak nail beds have had some time to breathe mostly thanks to me being terrified of biting them because #germs, so I learned how to do an at-home gel manicure and it really helped the situation become more fun (and cost-efficient).
Another beauty lesson I learned this year is how important it is to take care of your cuticle bed. I can’t believe how much I was neglecting this area, but fortunately – my cuticles are finally looking like (cute)icles. Okay, I’ll stop.
