Getting a manicure can really help you to feel beautiful and be a special treat that allows you to be pampered for an hour. In these difficult economic times, some people are finding it harder and harder to come up with the money to be able to afford their manicure. Although a trip to your local nail salon may not be as expensive as a trip to the hair salon or day spa, it can still become expensive over time especially if you are a frequent visitor of the nail salon. There are many ways that you can try to save money on a manicure though.
Do it yourself instead of paying someone. The next time you have a little extra time on your hands, instead of going to the local nail salon to pay for a manicure, try doing it yourself in the comfort of your own home. Even if you don’t fancy yourself a master nail artist, with a little time and practice, perhaps you could be! There are many women who actually choose to perform their own manicures as opposed to letting someone else do it, just because they feel more comfortable in doing it themselves. The best part of doing a manicure at home is that you will be able to save the money you would have spent on a manicure for something else.
Don’t visit the nail salon quite as often. Many women pay for a manicure every week. If you would like to save money on manicures, start by making a deal with yourself to treat yourself a little less often. If you are good to your nails, the manicure you get could last longer than you think is possible. Plus, if you are getting a manicure less often, you may find that it seems more like a fun treat rather than a privilege to you.
Host a manicure party at home. Many women enjoy and are rather good at performing manicures for others. If you would like to save money on your next manicure, try inviting over a few of your best gal pals and host a manicure girl’s night party. Besides the fact that you will be saving money on a manicure, you can also take the opportunity to catch on your latest gossip and enjoy some snacks with your friends. This could be just what you need in order to not only save money on a manicure, but also to spend some quality time with your girlfriends.
Try using a different salon than usual. There are so many different nail salons at your disposal these days; it’s hard to count them. With so many different salons to choose from it should not be too difficult for you to spend a little time shopping around before your next manicure. If you are to find the best prices and the best service, you may want to ask around about the kind of service others are getting from any given salon. The best people to ask are probably the people who have already been there for service. Spend a little time speaking to the people who are on their way out of the salon. Ask what their opinion was of the service and how the prices were. This way, you can better judge whether you’d like to make them your next salon or not.
