Have you ever wanted to look more “professional,” but buying a new wardrobe is just too time-consuming and expensive? Getting your nails done can give you an instant polished look. It’s a great mental break and your salon professional will do a far better job than DIY at home.


  • Add it to your monthly budget – it might seem like a splurge initially, but may become essential “me time”
  • Find a convenient place – check their hours, prices, etc.
  • Choose a good neutral color at first – once you get comfortable, try brighter colors
  • Try a gel manicure* – you’ll only need to go every 2-3 weeks. Plus it’s super durable and dries quickly – you could even do it over lunch!

*Two warnings with gel manicures: 1) only a professional can take it off; 2) some warn the UV light could increase the risk of skin cancer.
