My name is Melissa but I go by Mel, Melly, and Meliss as well. Ive lived in and around DC all my life, and I’m a true city girl at heart. When I’m not saving oodles of money by doing my own manis and pedis, you can find me traveling the world, at a soccer/hockey game, out with my friends, or reading at home.
I’ve been doing my own manicures and pedicures for as long as I can remember. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy going for a little pampering every once and a while. I used to be a hard core Wet N Wild girl, but ever since I got a big girl job and can afford big girl nail polish brands, I’ve branched out more. I work for the federal government and have ended up in meetings with high profile politicians on the fly more times than I can count. Therefore, I always try to keep it professional on the nails, pretty much staying with pinks, reds, and nudes. I’m more adventuresome with my pedicures, and tend to wear whatever my mood calls for when I sit down to paint my nails.
