There is truly better feeling than getting your nails done.

12 Things That Happen At The Nail Salon

The nail salon is where girls (and even guys) go treat themselves. There is nothing like taking an hour or two out of the day. But sometimes, it can be a stressful time at the nail salon. Can you relate?

1. "Square or Round?"

One of the biggest decisions you have to make in your life.

2. Putting your feet in boiling hot water.

Shout out to the ladies that feel the water while filling up the little foot-tub.

3. Picking out a color...

ESPECIALLY under pressure when the nail lady is ready and waiting for you to sit down and you STILL can't decide.

4. Cringing when your cuticles are pushed too far back.

All I can say is, "ow."

5. Wondering halfway through the process if you chose the right color.

Second doubts are the worst. But it usually ends up working out in the end anyway.

6. Trying not to laugh or kick your nail technician during the ticklish- callous-scrubby part.

It all goes fine until he/she stops scrubbing my heel and scrubs towards the middle of the foot.

7. Hoping the technicians aren't talking about you.

I mean, what are the chances anyway? (Probably very high).

8. Being asked if you want a design.

And kindly saying, "no thank you" because you are way past the phase of a flower being painted on their big toe or ring finger.

9. Becoming best friends with your nail technician.

It's the kind of relationship guys have with their barbers. You will never trust anyone else with your nails or your life details. But that just goes to show you how often we go to the salon...

10. Having to pay before your nails are even done.

I understand why they ask but come on. In the middle of my relaxation time?!

11. But the satisfying feeling of getting your nails done.

Congratulations. You are now a changed person.

12. Getting acrylics on.

There is just something about long nails that make you start moving your hands in a different way, and you feel so empowered with a set of fierce nails, you know?

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
