Ask any checkout person for Walmart or Publix what is the first thing they notice about some women appearance.  The vast majority will respond their nail art.  Nail art is when the nail person creates custom designs for customers’ nails.  These designs often include glitter, multiple nail colors and imitation gems such as diamonds and topaz.  Regardless of the design or accessory included in nail art, the one commonality for the practice is the premium prices charged by the organization.
