Funny Nails

One of my baby shower gifts was to get my nails and I was excited because I only get my nails done if I get a gift certificate. I went today and utterly relaxed as the bubbles and warm water soothed my plump feet and the kneading massaging chair rolled around my sore back regardless of my inability to understand what the nail ladies were saying to me. I just kept repeating "not if it costs more money".
The one thing I knew I wanted to spend more money on was a french manicure. I always only get clear polish on my nails because I am a mom and nothing else stays on my working nails. I heard french manicures last longer so I decided to go for that. I told the gal that I needed my nails shorter so I did not scratch the baby but that I wanted it to look good with the FM. She cut the first nail and I thought it was too short but she said it w0uld look good. I think it looks funny to be able to see skin over my nails.

It came time to pay and I get out my certificate and she tells me it is for a different salon. Wha?? Oh, they were Happy Nails not Lovely Nails. How silly of me to assume. Hence I dub this post Funny Nails. Not happy or lovely. Funny because that is how my nails look too.

I had to hurry to pick up Simeon and and messed up a nail putting my seat belt on because lets face it, it is not easy putting a seat belt on a 38 week belly.
