OK, so I was sooo excited about my boyfriend coming to visit me in NY for the first time that I could hardly sit still. I decided to distract myself by giving myself a nice mani pedi and catching up on some old One Tree Hill episodes(blog world please don't tell anyone I watch that, I'm embarrassed enough as it is!). It occurred to me that besides being a great way to pamper oneself and calm down a bit, painting your own nails is a great Penny Saver. I know, I know, everyone says this and I frankly never buy it cause mine always come out so crappy. The difference I've discovered is how much time and effort you put in. What do you love about getting your nails done, besides the obvious pretty nails part, it's the pampering! The time where you can't do anything else cause hey, your nails are wet. That's what we ladies(and gents) love about getting our weekly mani pedi. So I say, don't just slap on a coat of too old, sticky middle school pink. Luxuriate, enjoy it, relax. This Penny Saver is really about taking time for the most important person in your life, Y-O-U.
