Nails: Are All Pedicures Equal?

Sorry gents, this one might be of interest only to the ladies (though I am aware that nowadays some men also take good care of their feet and nails with pedicures and the like)! Yesterday, I went for a pedicure at my regular ‘local’ beauty salon and truth be told, I left less than pleased despite my nails having been saved from the raggedy state they’d been in.

It takes on so many different characters depending on where you sit, what you do there, and what company you are in, that I barely know how to describe it to you. Let me try to describe it by telling you what the Cellar … Continue reading
