Why do we go through all of the trouble of getting a manicure we may ask ourselves? Because manicures are the secret weapons that are used by most women.
Some of my friends say that they get manicures because they are not as expensive as therapy. A manicure can be a good quick pick you up when you're feeling blue. They can also instantly make you feel prettier (or at least a little fancier). You see pictures everywhere of women with perfectly manicured fingers.
You can not open your favorite magazine or turn on the television without seeing a set of perfectly manicured fingers these days. Maybe it's the ease of which we can now get manicures. There are nail salons opening up all over the place. Most with opening offers! free or half price, trying to compete with other salons.
You see lots of different types of manicures in magazines and catalogs. I have seen a lot of different designs and stones put on the tops of people's finger nails and toenails.
Recently a friend got a pedicure, she was asked by the manicurist if she would like a design on her big toe. She said about it for a minute! Before saying no! I told her it would have been cool to have a design or a stone on her toe, but she said she thought it was her way of getting her to spend more money.
After all, she said she's not the trendiest person in the world and not exactly a teenager either, so she would have probably looked ridiculous with a design on my nail or toenail. After her saying that, I do think that nail designs have their place in the manicure world. I've seen a lot of other people with these images, and it looks great on them.
In magazines you can all ways see ads for a new type of nail polish. Some say they are chip proof, others advertise a shine that is long lasting. There is even a nail polish for dogs, product they were advertising was called dog pawlish. Would you believe it a polish for the dogs. I thought it was really cute and would have bought some, if I had a dog. Do you know !! I might just get one !!! A dog that is !!! Dogs as though, manicures are important to all women at some point and time in their lives, even if they will not admit it.
There is always a time when every woman considers a manicure to be of the most important thing that she must do, this could be when getting engaged, married or even just a girly night out with friends when you just know that they too will have their hand and feet digits perfectly pedicured and manicured.
Did you know that manicure and pedicure parties are becoming a staple of all bridal parties, Even if you are not the bride.
