I don’t often get manicures by professionals because I like doing my nails myself. However, sometimes I can’t resist the thought of treating myself and getting a proper manicure.
Hence this post:
I can use my own products and not items with shared brushes etc.
It’s free (except for the price of the nail polish) -an average manicure costs $20. So $2 a finger.
I can do different designs for no extra cost.
Some places give a hand massage and moisturise your hands. They also do your cuticles too and file nails into a nice shape.
The nails look more professional.
It is nice for a treat.
So, I think I prefer home manicure to getting one professionally done. I also find that my nail polish doesn’t chip off as quickly as when I get them professionally done. I don’t know why. Maybe I’ve just had bad luck.
For example, last week I did my own nails and it lasted the week. On Saturday I got my nails done and they have only lasted until today (Tuesday)
