It was Mother’s day 2 years ago when I took my own dear mother to get a mani/pedi. I had a nursing baby I had to get back to quickly and getting away from the house was a challenge.
My mom and I had an excellent time. We chatted and sat there as women scrubbed and polished our feet and hands. I paid the bill and tipped our manicurists. Almost $200 later, I walked out of the salon justifying the cost with ideas of quality time and pretty feet.
- This was a treat.
- This was a gift!
- They were very pretty!!
AND IF THAT WASN’T ENOUGH…
Upon my arrival at home my husband declared his love for my manicured hands! “I love it when your nails are done.” he proclaimed with enthusiasm.
After 8 years of marriage I had no idea!
I was horrified! I had rarely done my nails since having babies!!
Well, add it to the budget, my nails WILL BE DONE!!
By 9pm, my beautiful gel manicure had a huge chip out of the thumbnail. To say I was irritated would be an understatement!
Thankfully less than 2 weeks later I was introduced to Jamberry Nails and their amazing nail wraps!!
So here it is…
3 Reasons I can’t bring myself to go to the nail salon anymore:
Getting away is challenging: I’m pregnant with 6 children under 9. Even though I enjoy getting out from time to time, it’s on a rare occasion and when I do, I honestly don’t want to waste an entire hour or more sitting and having someone do my nails.
Manicures and Pedicures are expensive: If I’m going to budget an extra $100 a month I’d rather hire a maid!!
They don’t last: I don’t want to spend money on something that looks ugly after 24 hours. It’s just not my style. I’m frugal and I want to stretch my dollar!!
Now, in full disclosure, I’m now a Premier Consultant for Jamberry Nails. I adore the company and love consulting. It’s fun for me to show frugal, and maybe intermittently frumpy moms (like myself) how to have pretty nails for less money than the salon.
I also want to say I don’t fault you, if the salon is your thing! I just want to let you know there is another way if you are frustrated and your hubby likes your nails done! LOL!
If you want to try Jamberry email me and I will send you a sample or just go order a sheet on my website!!
