Dare to be Natural

     Every now and then I look at my hands in disgust.  You know how it is.  1 nail chips and so starts the chain reaction.  By the end of that 7th day your hiding your hands from embarrassment.  For me, on that 7th day i'm wishing for acrylic nails.  You know those beautiful hands you see in vogue, yeah I wish for them.  Soooo off I go, fake nail time.  OOOOOH, I love them I tell the Nail Tech, I feel whole again..... till 4 days later.  My cuticles chip, my skin starts to peel.... day 7 my hair is snagging on the nail because the acrylic is starting to lift.  1&1/2 months later with frustration and with my acrylic half chipped/chopped off I go to get them removed. 
     Why do I do this to myself every couple of months - each time telling myself never to get them again.  Today, September 7th is the day I dare myself to have natural hands.  Yep, no more acrylic for me.  If I can spend money getting acrylic nails maintained, then why not spend less money, maintaing a manicure with a hand massage for the extra bonus me time!
     This week my locket will represent the love I now have with my natural beautiful fingernails.   WHATS YOUR STORY?
