Any blind woman will know how virtually impossible it is to paint one’s own nails without sight. Some people will attempt clear varnish, but personally I don’t even do that, I’m a perfectionist I suppose.
This morning, being on a real low, I decided to cheer myself up so rang my local beauty salon to book an appointment to have my finger and toenails filed and painted. Fortunately I checked the price and was astounded that it was going to cost me £32. I don’t think so!
Some would argue that having one’s nails painted is a luxury, which it is, but if I were sighted, I’d go and buy some polish for a fiver and do it myself.
I have two choices now, I either pay up and have the nails done, or I don’t and accept it. I think I’m going to have to give it a swerve. £32 makes what some people would take for granted an unaffordable luxury.
