OK. Call me shallow. I don't mind a few face wrinkles: most of them are smile lines. I don't mind a few gray hairs: there's always that nifty stuff called hair color in a box. I don't even mind so much that my curves have shifted a little. What I do mind are my HANDS showing my age. THAT really bugs me. I try to do what I can to minimize damage from the sun (wear your sunscreen people), keep my skin exfoliated, moisturized, and all that good stuff. I had acrylic nails for a few years and finally decided (after having to get a car & car payment again) and a few other reasons, to have them removed. I have been blessed with nails that grow quickly and after about 2 mos., my nails are fully grown out. On one hand (pardon the pun), I love the way acrylic nails look and the pampering I get when I go for manicures. On the other hand, I kinda like my short natural nails and not having to spend a lot of money on my nails. (Although I am still going for simple manicures once a month or so.) So I have pros and cons for both ways. Have you ever waffled on this decision over your fingernails? I know it's shallow, but, hey, it's Friday and who wants to think about anything serious? I'd love to hear from you.
