When life throws me signs, I try to pay attention. Not that every pattern is a sign, but sometimes, they’re undeniable.
In the last 6 years, I have had two pedicures and a manicure – both within the last two months. I know, right? This is a potential addiction and, man, those can move pretty quickly if you’re not careful.
Jen and I caught a Happy Hour deal for our manicures and pedicures yesterday, fortunately, so they were discounted… If you consider $28 per person as a bargain. I’m pretty cheap, so… Yeah, that’s a little steep for me.
But manicures and pedicures make my nails SO PRETTY.
How am I supposed to give up something so aesthetically pleasing? I’ve had bare fingernails and toes for far too long, I guess – I’m completely enamored with this new nail polish idea! Behind the times? Maybe. What I do know is that I absolutely can’t afford to develop a mani/pedi habit.
…we’re issuing a challenge!
This is the first (of many) Broke & Beautiful challenges. Over the month of July, I challenge you to learn and perform the perfect manicure and/or pedicure, saving yourself who-knows-how-much money on expensive manicures and pedicures. We’ll be reviewing polishes, products, and dishing out tips on how to give yourself the best set o’ fingers & toes money doesn’t have to buy!
At the end of the month, you’ll have the skills, products, and experience to show off perfect nails whenever you want.
Your hard work ought to be rewarded, don’t you think? That’s why one participant will win a care package full of awesome nail-related paraphernalia! The announcement about the exact contents of the prize will be released soon… Can’t give it all away right now, can we? We’ll select from the list of participating blogs, and that person could totally be you.
Want to participate?
…Please do! Fill in the box below, and link it to either your blog, or a post showing off your prettiest nails! That way, we can all scope out (steal?) each other’s masterful skills. The more nail-related posts you make, the better chance you have of winning! Want to show off your weekly lessons in manicuring (wow, spell check says that’s a word…!)? Go for it! You can submit your post and/or blog to our list, so everyone can check out your gorgeous claws!
We’re super, super excited about this project – I can’t wait to see what we all come up with! Watch this space for all kinds of nail-related deliciousness. (Well, not this actual space…)
