I’ve always been honest with you. My nails are…well, nails. My nails are brittle, I never had the patience to grow them long, and though I really, really envision myself having long, elegant-looking nails, I always find myself on a path of sabotage and nail-destruction, as my nails easily break. I’ve tried them all – even the crazy teflon-coated Sally Hansen nail strengtheners, and I just couldn’t make my nails grow longer and stronger. And ok, not blaming it all on my nail-DNA, I also don’t feel like typing and doing stuff with my hands with long nails. I’m quite comfortable this way – with short nails that do all the labor, carry stuff, type like a maniac ( I scored high during typing maniac okay ), and all.
Although, sometimes, I just don’t feel like a lady sometimes with my short nails, and much more, a short nailbed. Haha! So…just imagine what I did during a really boring day at the mall…
While I was getting really bored on a Friday afternoon, I was checking on MAC Cosmetics’ holiday collection, and I really felt like getting a manicure. I strolled in Dashing Diva at Powerplant Mall, and well, I asked for “fake nails.” Haha! That was really, really blunt! But they really are, right? Anyway, Dashing Diva apparently has a variety of “virtual nails,” as they are called there – they have metallic nails with various designs, french tipped nails, and just plain nails that can be applied with your chosen shade of nail polish. I chose the plain nails, to save the complication. I was surprised that it only cost me P800.00 for both hands, as before, sculptured nails were much, much more expensive, going to thousands. But these are not sculptured nails, these are virtual nails! Yay for affordable nails!
