47 Things That go Through a Girl’s Head When Getting A Mani

Women, we love to get pampered. It’s a no brainer, right? Well, not exactly. Truthfully, we sort of have a love/hate relationship with the whole matter. It’s complicated.

I live for a good gel mani as much as the next girl. There’s a very special place in my heart for the person who created Shellac. Having nicely manicured nails is up there on my list of things that are important to me. (Alongside nice eyebrows, of course.) Also, pedicures are just a must in girl world. Dirty toes are all sorts of nasty. Not speaking for the majority here but I’m sure you can agree.

However, the process of getting there is most definitely not a trip to Disneyland. Pursuing beauty is a full time job. Nails especially, require maintenance. At risk of sounding a little too girly, the process of getting a good mani and pedi is H-W-D. Hard work and dedication.

Sometimes the mere thought of getting my nails done and sitting in a chair for two hours just isn’t my idea of a good time. Pizza is a good time. Someone digging into my cuticles and scrubbing off dead skin with a hard rock, not so fun. On some days it’s a flat out chore. Okay, point blank, it’s anxiety.

First off, having to pick out a color that you are stuck having to stare at on your fingernails every day for the next two and a half weeks is straight stress. I can’t even decide what I’m having for dinner tonight. What do you want from me? I can’t commit for that long (things manicures and dating have in common.)

I get how the whole thing appears to be totally relaxing but quite frank, it’s not. It’s exhausting. Yes the end result, once it’s all said and done is typically a happy ending. Sometimes. Let’s be honest here, it’s not even till day five or six that you actually have been able to convince yourself that you actually chose the right color. Only then is it all worth it. Oh the drama of being a female.

But as they say in beauty school and life, no pain no gain.

Here are 43 thoughts that has gone through every girls head while getting her nails did.
