The Nail Salon Dilemma

SNS Gel nails

I’ve just come from The Nail Salon.

What in the world? I have beautiful “SNS gel nails” now. I can say I am VERY pleased with the results, but the experience? I am a little baffled. I keep thinking, ‘nowhere in society is there a place where people talk ABOUT you, in FRONT of you, like the nail salon. How does this happen? Well, they know how to speak in a special code. You’re there. You hear the sounds, but you have no idea what is said. Giggles ensue, followed by high-pitched laughter. What is a person to think as they feel the side-ways gaze? I wonder if I’ve just been complimented or condemned? I know not.

I walk out with shiny aqua nails. (darling, I do believe). I’m tempted to think I’ve been laughed at, but I raise my head and smile. I choose to think I was complimented. Why not? I’d rather be complimented than condemned. Maybe there’s something more magical about the nail salon than the nails. 😉 hehehe

    I am not easily intimidated. But a nail salon experience is intimidating. The experience of sitting among people for an hour, who have no compunction against speaking together in a language the customer obviously doesn’t speak is, at best, annoying, and at worst, just plain rude. Don’t love it! I wonder how much more a salon would bring in if they were to follow a customers first attitude, starting with not talking about, or appearing to talk about, their customers, within earshot of said customer!!

    Hmmmm, hot button, ya think?!
