I used to be really good about doing my own nails. I spent almost every weekend painting Mama Dear's and my nails on our weekly visits to Louisiana. Yes, we went to Louisiana every weekend when I was a kid and I loved it. Mama Dear had the most amazing nails – natural, super long, and always polished. Whether she was delivering one baby or 5 babies a day as a midwife she was utter perfection. Somewhere about the age of 23 (I'm definitely dating myself) I started going to the salon for my weekly manicures and that was it.
Then I meet Erika (my beauty blogging best friend forever) and all of a sudden my weekly manicures at the salon start slacking. I find myself doing them at home. Erika hates getting manicures. Hate is a strong word, but she really dislikes getting manicures. She doesn't think they file her nails properly and let's not get her started on how they polish her nails. After visiting her family last month I realized I'm not nearly as obsessed as those girls. I know in a weekend I painted my nails 3 times and that's because Ms. Bree, Ms. Bailey, and Ms. Janey said "let's change nail colors."
I came home and decided to start devoting a little more time to myself and use the nail polish I keep buying. This brings me to Rescue Your Nails by Ji Baek. Ji is the creator of Rescue Beauty Lounge, a top nail salon in New York, which has its own range of nail polishes and luxurious body products. So, I'm taking Ji's advice with making time for more at home manicures. Because I need the relaxation I'm going to the salon for my pedicures. Some things I won't give up.
