Why won't she let you? Most professional manicures only cost about 22 dollars as long as you just use your nails and not acrylics. Just tell her that this is important to you and you will pay for it. Other than that I just suggest having a friend do it if she is really against it (but I can't imagine why)How can I convince my mother to let me get my nails done?
If you are going to get your nails done, you need to make sure that's what your really want. They are beautiful when you first get them on. You will need to get a fill every two weeks. I would make a deal with your mom. If you are responsible and can pay with your own money then I don't see why she wouldn't let you. If not get a french manicure.
Tell them that it'll only be for this one time (even if it's not:P) and that you'll pay for it and make sure the nail place you go to is sanitary and all of that. Basically reassure her that you'll be ok, that's usually what mom's care about:)
bite your nails or try making them look rlly bad and tell your mom, tht if you dont get your nails done dressing nice wont make a difference.
Just do it!
rebel and you will always get your way
dont abuse it too much though
