Where do I start? I see solid evidence every day that a good set of Gel Nails can change a lot!
Why Would You Waste Your Money On That?
I guess gel nails are still thought of as superficial. Certainly not a necessity. Frivolous?
I have had husbands of clients come to me and roll their eyes to the fact that their wife spends his hard-earned money on nails!
Ohhhhh don’t even get me started!
I will usually come back with “Is your wife Happy? How do new nails make her feel? Is that worth it?”
But this is my point. I can literally feel my clients mood or confidence go from a 2 to a 10 by the time her nails are done. We feel pretty, powerful and even a little bad ass! When my guest sits a little taller in her chair, I know we are on the right path.
Don’t let me put all the husbands in the same box! Some are so supportive because they can see how it makes her feel. Ah, the old saying “Happy wife, Happy Life.” Some men will even ask to see a picture of her nails before we are done!
I Got 99 Problems But My Nails Ain’t One!
The wheels could be completely falling off. The kitchen a disaster. Dog at the vet. Sick kid, or worse, the man flu! But literally looking down and seeing a beautiful fresh set of nails helps to push me along.
Puts a little smile on my face, that at least something in my life is put together. I know I am not alone on this one!
I have had my nails on for over ten years. Never taken them off and I still will open my eyes the morning, after giving myself a fresh set and smile ear to ear!
That’s powerful stuff.
What I Love About Gel Nails:
They make us feel good. Raise our confidence. They are the perfect accessory to any outfit. They create compliments and conversations. I mean, who doesn’t love getting a good compliment. We should really try give them out more!
When I am doing nails I am having a real chats with my clients. We put our phones down and connect for an hour. This means the world to me. So much of our time is spent on our phone or on social media, that to just sit and see emotion in someones eyes doesn’t happen that much anymore. We are creating genuine relationships. Sometimes I even feel like we could conquer the world during those appointments.
Nails are my creative outlet. I can paint, play and essentially create little works of art.
They are F.U.N.!! I love planning the next set. Deciding which color best describes my mood that week. What outfits am I going to wear. Is it a special time of year? Because that always plays into my decision.
I just love this process!
So Let’s scrap other peoples opinions, whether they think nails are a waste of money or not. Let’s start investing in the things that make us smile. Whatever that looks like to you.
Please let me know what you love about your gel nails! I love to hear what inspires you and drives you.
Hope you all have a fabulous day <3
Good Luck Out There
