Yay, curlylaura! I'm happy for you!
I can't believe I'm going to get acrylic nails ... again. It's like a two-year phase for me. On for two years, off for two years. But at some point, I inevitably get tired of maintaining my own nails. I want them done all the time, and I don't have the patience for it. Manicures chip the day I get them or do them myself. Acrylics stay done for two weeks. I took them off only because I couldn't afford them, but now I can again, so ... yeah. Sigh. I'm still kind of on the fence, but I want them NOW, and I know I'll be happy once they're on. So there. Gonna get dressed and go have my real nails destroyed just so the fake ones can be pretty all the time.
