Thanks Boomer. I suspected the CC sizes were "generous" to give us a false sense of being petite again.

Sizes tend to be "true" to generous, not a bad thing.
Good thing is that you can try them on in the store to get a idea of sizing.

I've now had artificial nails for over a month (the first time ever). I just love them. For the first time in my life, my nails always look nice.

My new nails are gel and I have french tips. I know that there are also acrylic and solar nails and something called pink and white.

Can anyone explain to me what all those terms mean? I asked them to explain at the Nail Salon but there is a language barrier and I'm not understanding why a person would choose one type over another.

Bare! Put those peckers away! Never would have let you get your nails done if I knew you were going to obsess on them!

p.s. You nails look beautiful. I don't know the difference. I just know the acrylic are cheaper!

Chels, I have an obsessive need to research everything. I can't buy a fly swatter without researching all the different types and prices.

I drive myself crazy. I'm trying to quit.

Out of curiousity, Barefoot, are you an engineer? I hear they are afflicted with the same qualities. (Or should I say blessed?)

No Peachie, I'm worse than an engineer, I'm a Gemini. We have split personalities.

Half of me analyzes everything to death, and the other half is a free spirit who looks on in horror and has no time or patience for that crap. I have constant boxing matches in my head.

I guess that is why I stumble around with a dazed look on my face most of the time.

Default Nails

I just tried a new Nails place. It opened a month ago. Golf cart accessible. Located beside Bonefish Grill in Buffalo Ridge on 466. I used Cindy, and I think she does a good job. Competition for Hollywood Nails for sure.

Nails and Beyond
3606 Wedgewood Lane
352-753-9222

This time I got pink and white nails. I just started this whole artificial nail thing in October; and I sure do like having nice nails. (Chels thinks I'm suffering from a serious nail obsession. I fear she may be correct.)

Hahaha Chels, I also got nail art on my toes.

Sitting here admiring my nails

Exclamation Omg!

Bare! Calling all of Bare's dear friends! We must stop her! We must hold an intervention! I can see her being taken away now screaming "Naillllllsssss!"

Ooooo, and now a picture on your toesies! (It's best to humor her in times like this.)


pssstttttt..... people. Let's stop her before she pedicures again! The next thing you know she'll be going for a Swiss Bikini Wax and a resounding "Yeoowwwwwwwww" will be heard 'round The Villages!

Help, we need help. Chels and I can not tame this wild woman alone...oh wait, look, Chico's is having their After Christmas Sale...Bare, darling I can see the cutest pink tunic in the window, it will match your nail job, I just know it will. Come on down dear, before someone else buys it.... (shhh I think it's working)

Chels, not sure what good a bikini wax would be since I retired my binkini in
1974! People had started complaining.

Susan, did I just hear the magic words "Sale at Chico's"? I love that store.
OK, no more nail art, I need to save my $s for Chico!
