My First Manicure

I went for a manicure and pedicure last Sunday. It was the first time I got my nails painted by a "professional". I got a tip about caring for the heels from the friendly lady. When you have hard skin at your heels, you need to get rid of those dead skin. You can scrub your heels at a rough surface after you've cleaned your feet. If you don't get rid of the hard skin, it'll become harder and harder and will crack if it's dry. So when you have cracked heels, you know your feet are in critical condition.

There were so many colours and patterns to choose from. So I let her suggest what’s suitable for me. For the toes, she did a 2-tone colour (diagonally) and put glitters on the separator. I actually wanted to do the French manicure (with white colour at the tips of the nails) for my fingers. But she said it'll chip off very easily. So I decided on a simple pattern, a plain colour with glitters at the edge. I chose a light colour coz if it chipped off, it wouldn't look so obvious. There're still so many days before CNY and I'm sure they wouldn't look as perfect as when it was first done. I'm hoping they'll still look good for the first few days of CNY.
