Last month was my birthday, and as a birthday present to myself I decided to treat myself to getting my nails done. I’ve had my nails done twice before, once was a really bad experience, but then my friend Sophia convinced me to try again somewhere else and I loved them. Since then I’ve discovered there’s a local nail and beauty salon in the village I live in, so I thought I’d give them a try for my birthday nails, as I didn’t have to travel far to get there. 


I’m always worried about going somewhere new, especially as you don’t know how well they can do things, but I
was pleasantly surprised with how well they did my nails, and they lasted me weeks. Since then I’ve gone back a few times, and I’ve kind of become addicted to getting shellac nails. I just love how lovely they look compared to when I paint my own nails, and they help to make my manly sausage fingers look a little more feminine and pretty. 


Usually when I paint my nails I chose fairly neutral shades of brown and grey, but this time I decided to go for something a little different, and had my nails done a shade of pink. Pink is a completely alien colour for me, but I’m really enjoying having bright bold nails for once. I can’t stop looking at my nails, they just look so pretty! I’ve booked a few more nail appointments because I’m so impressed with them, so I’m looking forward to having pretty nails again in the future!
