Annie has spent the better part of her life as a nail tech in the company of women in one affluent area of South Florida. As they work their way through the latest collection of polish colors together, season after season, the clients reveal their most private thoughts, in confidence, of course, and Annie notices a pattern. Often their behavior does not match their long-term goals.
Armed with knowledge, she frequently uses examples of a client's demise to help another in need of advice. This book is a collection of the most poignant stories heard throughout her career, each with a moral dilemma. It's easy to pick out the mistakes made from the outside looking in, and in doing so, one thing becomes abundantly clear; no one escapes this life without at least one situation that brings them to a crossroads, not even Annie.
