And, because my nails grow ultra fast, it was necessary to return to my nail guy John basically every two weeks, or two and a half if I was stretching it. At today's rates of roughly $25-35, along with a fee for an occasional repair or lost nail, and adding on an appropriate gratuity, that works out to about $65 each month just for nails.
I've been doing the math of this little routine for the last ten years, and debating the expense all throughout those ten years.
It has finally come down to a decision, folks.
From now on, it's gonna be au naturel for me. The fake nails are off, my own nails are growing, and the nail beds are slowly getting thicker and healthier.
|The damaged part is almost grown out.|
No more $35 a visit.
No more appointments to keep.
No more worrying about schmucking up tacky nails with my car keys on the way out of the shop.
No more. Nada.
Now, if I can just put that amount of money aside and actually watch it add up.
Like I said, I've been doing some calculations.
At roughly $65 each month, that's $780 in one year.
And furthermore, $780 is roughly equivalent to six or seven nights in a hotel, or approximately 26 camping nights, based on state and federal campground fees.
Now for the next big decision - the toes.....
