If there is one thing I will never cut from my budget (let’s be serious I don’t really follow one but I pretend) it would be manicures. There is just something about going to the salon, picking out a color and being pampered for just a little while. Most salons near me charge $35 dollars for a mani/pedi and only $10 for a manicure, how can I not? Painting my nails myself is like trying to recreate an amazing meal you had a restaurant…impossible.

When I do {rarely} paint my nails myself, I usually have to re-do them every few days to keep them looking fresh. When I go to the salon, they can easily last over a week. I swear the salons put something special in their polish to make them look shiny for so long, I can’t recreate the lasting shine myself and trust me I. Have. Tried.

If any of you have the secret to keeping them looking fresh and clean, I’m dying to know!

That’s the kind of shine I would love to be able to achieve.
