There is a new neighbor in my hood, a nail art salon, Valley Nails. YEP, who knew, nail art! I mean, I guess I did, but I had never experienced it.
It was everything that I expected it to be — a treat for a special occasion, such as a wedding (my excuse to get them done) or Halloween. A little pizazz and jazz to spice up a simple manicure. It felt fancy and fun, and I will definitely return to get more nail art before my next special event.
As I am scared of gel nail polish (my fingers get claustrophobic), I opted for normal nail polish. Once you decide on that, you pick the amount of time that you want them tp work on your fingers. As I have little to no patience, I chose the smallest amount of time (15 minutes), whereas the more intricate designs take 30 – 60 minutes (in addition to the basic manicure).
Here is what my manicure looked like — I decided that I wanted a reverse french manicure, and some sparkle and glitter on it.
Next time I go to Valley Nails, I want to get the rainbow or the evil eye.
I definitely recommend nail art as a fun addition to any outfit or as a great mental pick me up. Have a great weekend — it is getting super cold in NYC. EEKS.
