One of my favourite things to do on a weekend is paint my nails. I typically do it on a Sunday at the end of the day when I’m the only one still awake. It gives me peace and makes me a little more excited for the week ahead. I mean, pretty nails (and other pretty things like lipstick) just have a way of lifting my spirits. I dont have a favourite branch of nail polish but I like the Jordana, Color Club and Sinful Colors brands. I generally buy based on the colour I’m in the mood for.
It’s not a big ticket self-care activity but it is one of those that I really enjoy. Outside of the aesthetics, it requires a bit of downtime. Once the polish is on, you can’t really do anything until it dries. So during this time, I get to watch a tv show or movie. I can probably do a bit of reading, if I’m careful. Taking the time to paint my nails represents time I take for myself to rest, relax and recharge for the upcoming week.
Is there something you do for yourself to help you get ready for the week ahead?
