Nothing tops off a blood testing, pancake breakfast morning like a little pampering. It's been ages since I've had my nails done professionally so I decided to splurge today before I returned home.

I don't mean to sound like I'm stuck on myself or anything but don't they look lovely? Okay, okay ... I'll admit it. This isn't a photo of my nails. I tried using the time lapse thingie on my camera to take a photo of my own hands but this is the result I ended up with.
The pink sparkle color of the polish didn't even show up! I don't know what's up with that : ( Of course John was out on the town with me so he came into the salon to help me pick a color. I had never been to this particular salon before. Like I said above, it's been ages since I've had my nails professionally done. Several years in fact. When the receptionist asked me which technician I wanted to see, I told her I wanted the best they had. She told me their best was Eduardo. It was a bit of a wait (Eduardo is very popular) but it was worth every minute because he did a great job! Luckily I had my camera in my purse & Eduardo agreed to let John take a photo while he worked on me.
Such patience! Such attention to detail! My nails flash like a disco ball while I'm stitching. I am having John play the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack as I'm continuing to work on my Stacy Nash. So cool!!!
In reality I do have pink sparkle nails the same color as the first photo shows but I polished them myself. You know how everyone has at least one "best feature?" I've always felt my nails were my best feature. I've had fun polishing them since I was in grade school & they've always grown healthy & strong but over the past couple years they've decided to break & split & peel & basically look like crap. I stopped using polish because I thought letting the nails breathe for a while might help but it hasn't, so I decided to throw caution to the wind & resume using polish.
Here is a tip for all of you who have trouble growing your nails. Use sparkle nail polish. It's like painting a layer or two of concrete on your nails which helps them resist breaking, splitting, etc.
Okay ... I've got to end here & get back to Stacy. The Bee Gees are telling me I should be stitching : )
