I am a proud Canadian living south of the border in Cancun, Mexico. I left the snow behind for the sand, and am learning to love my new life!

Officially a Mexicana...jajaja
Acrilicas. Yes, uñas/nails. It seems to me that the majority of the woman here in Cancun have fake nails. Maybe they do back home and I never noticed, but I can sure as heck say none of my friends have them, and nor did I. Until now that is.... EEK!!!
Price list at : Dharma Spa
Truth be told, I have actually had these fake nails of mine for a couple of months now. My cuñada and I go for bi-weekly pedi's and she was getting acryllics put on, and I thought what the heck - let's try them. Actually, I had every intention of having them off by now, but I'm surprisingly really starting to like them. Jajajaja. I used to think they were so impractical, but they are the opposite. I can wash as many dishes as I want, I can swim as long as I want, and they never peel back. Love it. I keep mine VERY natural looking, and short. I still gag when I see some of the ladies in there with their wacko colours, and claw like lengths!!! Too each their own, I guess.
I will say it's kinda a pain in the u-know-what as far as refills go, but it's something my cuñada and I can do together, and it's half the cost it was in Canada. I pay $190 pesos for a refill here. On my last trip to Calgary I paid $57 Cdn!!! Oh well, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!!
Cuñada getting her feet and hands worked on :)
I'll let you all know how long these bad boys stay on for.....
