get nails done

美甲

(měijiǎ)

A: I have notice you always paint your nails very fancy, and that you change how they look every day.

我看你经常把指甲涂的特别花哨, 而且每天都换一个花样。

(wǒ kàn nǐ jīnɡchánɡ bǎ zhǐjiǎ tú de tèbié huāshào, érqiě měitiān dōu huàn yīɡè huāyànɡ.)

B: Yup. I go get my nails done every other day. Looking at pretty nails always makes me very happy. I hear that even men like to go get their nails and skin done. It makes them feel good about themselves.  

对啊, 我每隔两天就要去美甲。看着自己漂亮的指甲, 我的心情就变得非常好。我听说现在就连男人们都很喜欢去做指甲和皮肤护理, 这让他们自我感觉良好。

(duì a, wǒ měi ɡé liǎnɡtiān jiùyào qù měijiǎ. kànzhe zìjǐ piàoliànɡ de zhǐjiǎ, wǒ de xīnqínɡ jiù biàn de fēichánɡ hǎo. wǒ tīnɡshuō xiànzài jiù lián nánrén men dōu hěn xǐhuān qù zuò zhǐjiǎ hé pífū hùlǐ, zhè rànɡ tāmen zìwǒ ɡǎnjué liánɡhǎo.)

A: Okay. I admit that I'm a little behind the times.

好吧, 我得承认我有点跟不上潮流了。

(hǎoba, wǒ děi chénɡrèn wǒ yǒudiǎn ɡēnbùshànɡ cháoliú le.)
