I remember my very first paycheck I ever received in my life, the first thing I did was buy a Nokia cell phone. You know, the one that had the "Snake" game on it, interchangeable buttons & faces, an antenna you had to pull up to get good service, and T9 texting. If you don't know about this phone, I feel bad for you son. I still, to the day, think it was the greatest phone ever made. The second thing I did with that paycheck, was went straight to the nail salon, Paris Nails in Smyrna to be exact, and got a full set of acrylic "fake" nails with airbrush letters, hearts, and even bedazzled them with rhinestones. It looked like Valentine's Day threw up on my hands. I added absolutely every extra you could possibly get, because let's face it, I made $5.15 an hour and I was feeling super rich. I literally spent every penny I had to my name on those two things, but I sure was happy. I was fourteen years old at the time, it's fifteen and a half years later and I've never stopped getting my nails done since, until a month ago. I have several reasons I stopped getting them done, but the main reason is my new budget.
As many of you may know from my "Changes" blog, I recently quit a job that made me miserable. The downside of that was that working there paid me really good money, so I knew immediately I was going to have to make a few lifestyle changes. I never thought a single thing about spending money every 3 weeks to have my nails and toes done, but when you add it up, it sure is expensive. The first thing I did after quitting my job, was to take off my fake nails. I had to think of some things I could live without, and they definitely made the list. This brings me to the moral of this story...I have GOT to tell y'all about this amazing creation I bought today the "SensatioNail Starter Kit" .
