I have this theory that one day every single thing we usually run around like crazy people doing, outside the home, will all be brought inside the home. Oh wait, that’s already happening, isn’t it? I guess, as a kid, that was more of a luxurious dream. Not having to leave the house to get groceries, get a haircut, nails done, etc etc. Pretty much anything you can imagine having to leave the house for these days, can come to you. Amazing right? I’m trying all these things out one day at a time and slowly adjusting to the idea that I could become a total recluse and still live a luxury lifestyle while doing so. Might put a dent in the making money part, but hey, I could always start a Youtube channel about my reclusive ways and rack up the big bucks on advertising. I think an idea has just been born, people.
In all seriousness, a good friend recommended a fantastic company in my time of need last week. I had been on the ground in London for 48 hours and was already packing for another transatlantic trip. So much for the recluse idea. In my rush to get everything done quickly, I didn’t have time to do anything about the nails situation. I call it a situation because it was so bad I’m pretty sure one of my big toes had started to turn a lovely shade of mustard underneath polish that hadn’t been changed out in a quite some time (also... can't believe I'm actually sharing pictures of my feet herewith).
So, I called in recommended reinforcements called “Gloss and Polish.” Gloss and Polish is a mobile nails company. They work around you and for you. You give them a ring or book online and a magical fairy (or a lovely nail technician, rather) appears on your doorstep ready to transform those ugly tips and toes into something worthy of a front row appearance.
Within one hour I had beautiful, shiny, impressive gel nails and toenails that were guaranteed to see me through the next fortnight of hell in New York and London. Rather ashamedly, I sat on the couch like a sack of potatoes as my lovely nail angel gave new life and colour to my hands and feet. We had Friends on in the background and we laughed together as I moved as little as possible in a bid to regain some sort of strength. Oh man, I can just see how you are picturing this now. I might as well have a soap opera on the TV and bon-bons to hand. I know, I know, hard life.
Gloss and Polish truly are fantastic. They do nails and only nails and they cost less than what I was paying at my local salon. How they do that, I have no clue. But I’d rather not ask questions and just enjoy a fantastic result in the end. Defintiely worth checking out, ladies and gents, if you are in London and love some at-home pampering.
