I don’t have the time for regular manicures but try to get one once a month, other than that I clean behind them every night and buff them up. I use a nude or light pink polish generally as it is frowned upon at work ( tarty they think ) unfair and perhaps slightly sexist, however my boss is female so what does that mean.
I almost always just use clear polish, I give myself mini-manicures often, I keep my nails trimmed pretty short and I don’t like them looking dirty. I’ve never been comfortable at all with long nails, I don’t know how some women do it, like I had a coworker once she could barely type because of her nails.
I go for pedicures pretty frequently, so much more in spring and summer. I like going outside barefoot a lot, and I still want to keep my feet looking and feeling feminine, so I pamper a bit.
Since I’m always working with my hands, manicures would be wasted on me. I try to keep fingernails evenly trimmed. On the other hand, pedicures are entirely worth the money. What would normally take me hours, my pedicurist does in 45 minutes. I get them every three weeks or so.
I actually gave myself a manicure today: using a Barry M coral.
I give myself a manicure about twice a week. Sometimes I will do a French manicure, others a block colour. I always chop & change colours. Whether I choose red, peach, glitter, metallic, pink, purple, depends on my mood that day. I often choose vibrant colours, as I love to have party nails: even at work. I hate being boring!
