Women and men like to have their nails clean, filed, and smooth. Some women, also enjoy having false nails on their fingers to have their hands and fingers look better. Again, this is entirely by preference and is not mandatory. If anyone says you need to have your nails done or they won’t be with you….please do not feel you need them in your life. You are wonderful just as you are.
I choose to get my nails done once a month and it’s for a few reasons; my 1 hour of self-care time each month, the fact that when I have pretty nails, I feel prettier, and lastly, when I have my nails done, I don’t bite my nails. So, my anxiety has to find another way of expressing itself.
For me I try many different colors, styles, and nail shapes. But since I am on the computer almost all day for work and for chatting with you all, I know that I can’t have nails that are super long. They are about a 1/4 inch length right now and it is difficult to type as it is. They will be cut down when I see my tech again.
There are so many options to work with, colors in every shade imaginable and styles in more ways than there were before. It makes it difficult to choose a shape, color, style, look.
My best friend when looking for a new nail design is Pinterest. I have so many options, that I think ahead to the month coming up. Is there a holiday, special event, party, trip, or season change coming up? If there is something special, I usually get my nails tailored to that. This month is Christmas so I will use that as my theme and I have an idea to rock the red and green nails.
What are some of the ways you like to show your personality with your nails? I still need inspiration for the new year, so please share in the comments!
Be strong, be beautiful, be you
