Traveling Beauty Dilemmas: A Mani Emergency

05/24/2016

Years ago, while traveling for the holidays, I had a mani emergency. I had just gotten a shellac manicure (uber chic and not yet widely done at the time) and was promised it should last up to 2 weeks. When I arrived at my destination, I immediately put my hands to good use. I played with the kids in the family, helped with holiday food preps, and overall just enjoyed my vacation. Well, 2 days in I noticed my GORGEOUS manicure was chipped! While I normally go for muted colors, this time, I figured…what the heck…let’s do something bright! And lo and behold, the bright color choice came back to bite me as I was stuck, in an extremely small town, without my manicurist and an obviously chipped nail a few days before Christmas. This was well before phone apps were the standard. Luckily my host had a similar color (enough to offset the chip nail’s obviousness), but all I could think was, “I wish there was a way to find a manicurist without going in blind.” How does one fix these traveling beauty dilemmas? 

How awesome is it that now, in 2016, there are sooo many ways to do just that! As summer begins here in the northern hemisphere, know that you never have to go in blind. Whether on vacation, moving to a new town or just want to try a new service, there is an app for that! Below are our top rated apps for finding the service of your dreams, no matter where you are!
