Vietnamese Nail Salons
Tuesday, August 14, 2012
If you've ever been to a sketchy Vietnamese nail salon before, you know that the women who do your nails do a kick-ass job for way cheaper than a bougie overpriced salon you might find in Beverly Hills. It may look questionable on the outside, but these women will instantly make your nails look like you never had a nail-biting-anxiety problem, and the magic lasts for easily a week or two (unless you work with your hands all day, then probably not). My question is: what the hell is it that they're always talking about? They don't really talk to you much, but they do talk to each other at a mile a minute in their native language that I can't even come close to understanding. What could they possibly have THAT MUCH to talk about? Don't get me wrong, I'm a talkative woman (ask anyone who knows me, particularly my husband), but these ladies shut me up better than anyone - I just listen in silence, fascinated by how lightning fast they talk with never even a pause in the conversation. It's amazing. It's half the reason I even go get my nails done anymore, just to experience people that actually talk more than I do. It's impressive. One quick Google search led me to this hilarious piece of stand-up by comedian Anjelah Johnson about these nail salons I just had to share... it's a quick one, 5 minutes, and definitely worth the watch.
