Stiletto Nails (And Mini Review on Diamond Nails in Temple City, CA)

Saturday, June 15, 2013
 Hi Everyone!  So I had been stalking Pinterest and YouTube for some inspiration, and I came across the twin fads: Stiletto Nails and Duck Nails.  And by twin, I mean complete opposites! LOL  In case you aren't aware, Stiletto Nails are where your nails (usually acrylic) come to a point, and Duck Nails are where your nails (also usually acrylic) flare out at the tip.  I didn't actually get Duck Nails done (I'm already getting annoyed with Stiletto as it is!), but if you Google it or Pinterest it, you'll see what I'm talking about.  (For all you lazy people..let me google that for you...:http://lmgtfy.com/?q=duck+nails)

Anyhoo, so I was in dire need of a pedicure, so I decided to get that one on my last trip home.  I had seen that a new nail place opened up not too far from my mom's, so I decided to go take a peek (esp since they have a 20% off banner in front of the store! LOL).  I asked the lady doing my toes how much stiletto nails would cost.  She looked confused and asked me what stiletto nails were. LOL  At this point, I thought it was going to be a wash, but she said she could do it and with 20% off, it would only be $18.  Sounded good to me! I decided to go for and see how it turned out.

At first, I was very skeptical of the lady, but when I got my hand back and saw it shaped all pretty and pointy, I quickly relaxed and became confident that my nails would turn out awesome.  I was pleasantly surprised at how my nails turned out.  I think they are great and exactly what I was looking for!  My mom thinks that if I was going to do Stiletto Nails, I should've gone longer, but these are already annoying.  I couldn't imagine having nails an inch long!!  I already have issues typing....I can only foresee that I would've been locked out of my work computer/software because I kept mistyping my pw, hahaha.  So, what I'm trying to say is that these nails are as long as I can take, and they work.  Yes, I admit they probably would have looked better if they were a lot longer.  But...I'm good.  =)

My hubby seems to like these...here's the conversation we had:

Me: Let me scratch your back...I wanna test out how these nails feel.
Hubby: Uh...okay...?
Hubby: That feels pretty nice.
Me: Well, enjoy it while you can...I'm probably not going to upkeep these.
Hubby: Why not!!! I'm sure you can find a place in PHX.

Seriously, LOL.

I seriously doubt I can stand to have acrylics for too much longer...unless they were really short.  Maybe.  I dunno.  We'll see.   Hehehe

To finish my little review, I would have to say that Diamond Nails in Temple City is very big and nice.  The people there don't go for speed, they actually take the time to make your nails look right.  They aren't cheap, but they aren't too pricey either.  Take advantage of their 20% off just to see if you like their work.  I can say I'll definitely go back...I want to try their facial next time.  LOL  Anyhoo, that's pretty much all I have for the review...sorry there aren't really more details.  Let me know if you have any questions!

Till Next Time!
