Feelings of frustration are often expressed through the tapping of one’s fingernails. There’s tapping on the steering wheel during that apocalyptic morning traffic, timely tapping on the laptop at work, agitated tapping on the counter of the bank and finally, a huge burst of temperamental tapping in the traffic on the way home. Now that your nails are as chipped as a teacup in a tornado, take a trip to Authentics and treat your poor pointers to a 60 minute manicure and 60 minute pedicure for R169 or a pedicure for R103 or a manicure for R85. Just because your tips resemble those of a French gargoyle doesn’t mean that their fate is written in stone. Allow the friendly folks at Authentics Skin Laser Centre to take your weathered talons into their cathartic care and take them from fissured finger awnings and tarnished toe shells to the prized pointers and gleeful gesticulators you’ve always wanted. With décor that whispers understated elegance, dedicated therapists and an attitude that says “you’re beautiful”, a visit to Authentics is an authentically aweinspiring beautifying experience. Taking cues from international mani pedi trends; each member of staff is passionate about saving their clients from nailrelated trauma and embarrassment. Stop sitting on your paws, tucking in your toes, chewing your nails off or refusing to give a normal hand shake. Flaunt your feet in the slinkiest of sandals and get ready for some generous gesticulating because the time to hide those colossally cracked claws is over and the time to flaunt them as a force of nature is right now. Nailbedtime fact The strangest manicure to date was practised by a selfproclaimed ‘cuticle cult’ in South Africa who would buff fingernails with a sea cucumber and moisturise cuticles with bat droppings and a pinch of teatree oil. Though effective, the treatment left nails smelling awful.
