Our Day O Beauty
Now, if you know me AT ALL, you know I'm not much for beauty :-) My Katie, however, is ALL ABOUT the beauty. And I hate paying $ to get into these sales events, but I went along with it.
We actually had a pretty good time. She got her eyebrows waxed, I got a paraffin hand treatment, we both got a little massage on our extremely tight necks and shoulders, and we both got "Gelish" manicures.
We got our manis from two cosmetology students for $12.00. And got what we paid for :-) These gals are definitely still learning and our local Korean manicurists have nothing to worry about in the way of competition. But they were very sweet and I now have pretty "canasta nails" as Katie calls them--kind of that orangey pink color us old ladies love. My girl wasn't able to get polish on the left edge of any of my nails, but from a distance they look fine. And Katie got a dark purple, which is very "her". She also endured about 30 minutes of her girl trying to chip off her previous Gelish polish. Apparently this stuff is bullet proof (or it is if you are a Spokane Community College cosmetology student who tried to pry it off with an orange stick)
So, now I'm beautiful! Or at least my hand are. And I have a 15% off coupon on hair extensions. Yay.
