Nail Polish

Do you ever sport nail polish? Who does it: salon or DIY? Do you use UV polish and is it worth it? If by chance you're an old fogey, how do people react?

Are you the lady who collapsed from the smell of someone else's perfume R3? There was a recent thread about you on DL.

I pay $90+ for a manicure and a pedicure. I get clear polish on both feet and nails. I don't honestly care, but I kind of like how it shines/shimmers.

I am too old/lazy/fat (yep, typical datalounger), to clip my toenails. I can of course, but not well. Just easier to get it all done at once.

They always ask me if I want "color" and I've given it a half second thought, but who am I really trying to impress? Meh. I always pass, and get clear gel. I get hangnails often and the gel ... seems to help?

Toenails/fingernails aside, I'm always surprised by all that dead skin they rub off my feet/shins. That alone is worth it.

The black nail polish trend with the millennials now is a complete boner killer.

I'm 64 look 40 and I would NEVER EVER - NO NO NO - have sex with a Gen Z stud wearing nail polish. I'm sorry, it's just a boner killer!

I'm in Denver R11. It is was $90 last time with tip.

Included a manicure, pedicure, foot massage/clean/scrubbing and massage chair.

They always spend the whole time taking to each other in Korean and I'm paranoid they are talking about me.

I found out that one of my coworkers (straight male) went to a nail salon. The receipt was on his desk. However, the charge was for 150. His nails doesn't look like it was done professionally. I think he went for a happy ending there.

He probably got his arsehole waxed R14.

Get a fantastic mani-pedi or facial at an affordable price at your local beauty school! Students are supervised by experienced instructors and graded on their work, ensuring a professional-quality service. They're eager to please and utilize cutting-edge training technology to stay competitive.

I've personally tried both mani-pedis and facials at my beauty school and loved the results. The prices are much lower than salons, yet the service is equally exceptional.
