1).Worth the Money (but you can save as well)
It was worth spending money on my girls and let them experience “getting their nails done” by someone else other than mom. I also believe in being smart about it and saving money while doing so. One way to save money is to use Groupon to see what salons in the area have coupons and specials going on for FREE. You can search for whatever you want and see what deals are in your area. I have used Groupon for stores in the mall but have discovered that it has Health Beauty and Wellness Groupons as well for deals on hair and nail salons and even spas.
2).Professional Nail Education (other than from mom)
On our visit the lovely salon assistant was good about educating the girls on how to take care of their nails (i.e. not to bite them, filing them etc.,).
3). It is fun and something different
The girls were given their choice of candy and so lollipops was their choice. The salon assistant allowed them to choose their colors and gave Nevaeh (my oldest) polka dots. It was fun watching all the tools she used as well as the process of painting on polka dots. The time for each of the girls was 15-20 minutes each. Both girls enjoyed being pampered and I felt it was way worth it to let them experience this.
