So, I’m at a resort getting my nails done.
Ha. I just wanted to type that out to see how snotty it sounded.
Anyway, back to staying at a resort getting my nails done…
We celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary this past weekend by taking a quick staycation at the PGA National Resort and Spa. I’m a good wife and thought we could go to a golf resort for my husband. I golf, but not enough to feel prepared to take on these courses. I know my limits- these things are beasts. Back to me being a good wife. I knew he’d like the golf resort even if it’s not one of my favorite things. Oh yeah. I’m sorta also taking off for Spain and Portugal in a month, so I’m not exactly deprived. But let’s play up this good wife thing, shall we?
So while the hubster was golfing I decided to get a mani/pedi. They have a spa with tons of treatments and massages but the thought of a stranger rubbing my body strikes fear in every corner of my mind. BUT WHAT IF THEY TOUCH MY BUTT?!
I’ve got mad problems.
So a mani/pedi it is! I painstakingly chose my colors, went completely out of my realm and chose bright pink for my toes and bright coral for my fingers. Basically, I got the colors I always get. When the nail lady (I’m sure there’s a more endearing term than that but it’s all I got) came back she said, “Oh, you want that for your toes and that for your fingers? Two different colors?”
I’m thinking, “Lady, I can’t remember the last time my bra and panties matched. What’s your problem?”
I smiled nicely, not taking it personally, and said something along the lines of I usually choose bright colors.
She then continued, “Well usually women who have short finger nails go with a lighter color.”
I could feel the silent judgement. Whatever. I’m gonna rock my coral freakin’ nails.
When I was finished, she led me to a nice waiting area so I could try really hard for 10 minutes not to screw up my wet nails. The wet nail mime dance is always entertaining. Getting our keys out of our purse suddenly becomes bobbing for apples- we’re using elbows and teeth to not botch up our newly done nails.
While I was sitting waiting, a woman who has an “eyebrow station” was setting up for the day nearby. She immediately stopped and said, “Wow. I LOVE that color on your nails. Good choice.”
ARE YOU LISTENING JUDGMENTAL NAIL LADY?
I said, “Funny enough, I was just told that women with short nails usually go with lighter colors.”
Then, the nicest-eyebrow-lady-in-the-world-in-the-history-of-ever, without skipping a beat said,
“Girl, just be you!”
