If not for the Orchard nail salon, I doubt I would have aced my job interview and landed this plum job that pays me a lot of money for very little actual work. It’s a position where I have to look as good as possible for potential clients. Doing your hair at home is acceptable, but things like nail work have to be done by a professional. I take some of the credit for finding the best salon in the city to do the work, but really it’s just that they’re so good at what they do that all I had to do was show up.
Still, I had to get through the interview to get the job and that meant having professionals do everything. I even went to a salon for my hair and make up. My nails needed special attention because frankly they were rather unsightly because I didn’t take care of them. When I went in I think I had the remnants of at least two polish applications still on them. The woman at the salon gave me a slightly scolding look, which I found absolutely hilarious, and then she got to work on the nails.
I got a manicure and a new polish application and let me tell you when I walked out of the salon my nails were perfect. I thought they actually glowed they looked so good. When I went to the store to get an outfit after the treatment at the salon, the sales lady immediately remarked upon my nails and wanted to know where the place was so she could get hers done there as well. Needless to say I got the job and I really think the nails were the biggest factor in landing this plum position. I can’t wait to go back and have them done again!
