Hit the Nail on The Head
As someone who had the nasty habit of biting their nails for about 9 years, I will be the first to tell you that it's a hard habit to break! Last year I thought I had kicked the habit for good when I had got so busy in my last quarter of college that I just simply didn't have the time to bite my nails anymore. But as soon as I graduated I was off the wagon again and it wasn't until I moved to New York a few months later that I realized having perfectly manicured nails is a major part of grooming here! Being west coast born and raised instilled a sense of laid back-ness in me, where the only time we really got our nails done was for special occasions like dances and fancy dates. It wasn't until February that I went and got a manicure with my friend Norah and I have not bitten my nails since. And since then, I have become obsessed with always having my nails painted. Unfortunately for me I do them myself most of the time because I live on the budget of a sales associate by day, designer by night. Here are a few of my most recent manicures that I had to share! Oh and please excuse my hands, I'm double jointed in all my fingers so they always look weird. I've actually had people scream and ask if I was okay, haha.
