If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then nails are the doorways to the self. Important research suggests you can tell more about people from their fingernails than you'd expect—37% more. Fingernails riddled with bite marks indicate the person has run out of hot dogs. A bruised fingernail is evidence of someone with the deadly combination of an oral fixation and horse teeth. Nails decorated with painted-on Dolce&Gabbana logos likely belong to a person sponsored by Dolce&Gabbana. Prevent the unwanted broadcasting of personal information: go with a clean and simple style with a great mani-pedi combo at Marianne Strokirk Salons.
And while you’re at it, you should probably fix up your hair. After all, if the nails are the gateway to the self, then the hair is the tunnel to the mind—and the mind is a terrible thing to waste. A stellar haircut prevents the wasting of a mind. It’s a good thing today's Groupon also gives you an amazing haircut by a top-notch stylist.
