Something Special

By Megan McDougall

I’m a nail gal. There’s no denying it. I subscribe to the belief that when my nails are looking right, nothing can go wrong. That may seem dramatic- but I am absolutely NOT kidding you. Ever since I was a little girl, I was obsessed with all things nails. Instead of spending my cash on tokens at Skateland- you could find me in the nail section of Target, deciding which paintbrush of my mother’s would work best with the acrylic powder that was on sale (I’ve always been a strong supporter of balling on a budget). And when K-Mart was going out of business (RIP), you bet your ass my 12-year-old self got an advance and bought out the whole damn aisle.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel. Buy it, love it. S&TF Guarantee. 

Now I’m going somewhere with this, I promise. As I mentioned earlier this week on our Mind, Body, Soul journey, I was a quite a large youngin’. The beautiful thing about nails, is that they don’t really reflect you waistline. My whole life, I’ve been able to count on these babies to stop the show. So why am I telling y’all this? Because I believe your outward appearance plays a big role in how one perceives themselves and others. It’s certainly not always the case, but when you feel good about even just one thing, it can make your day that much brighter and it translates across your whole aura. I believe that we can’t look perfect, but we have assets that can. Every single one of you has that thing that just makes them shine. Maybe it’s your smile, maybe it’s your hair, but there is something about you that is extraordinary. Whatever it is, we urge you to celebrate it today. Baby, there ain’t nothing wrong with a little indulgent self-love, and here at Scotch & The Fox- we aren’t afraid to partake.
