Showing off my own nails today.
I had seen an article in a magazine where they did this Pistachio color and on the ring fingers they did a fuchsia color. I decided to do my own version and use sparkles on the ring fingers.
I think this is #1 on my favorite manicure ever list :-) I just love it!
For those wanting to know what I used, Gelish in Seafoam and Water Field.
I have been asked how I keep my nails so nice even though I work with metal and etch copper.
My answers are:
Cuticle oil, lots and lots of cuticle oil. I apply mine 2 - 3x's a day! I know this helps keep them growing long and resisting breaking and staining because I ran out at home for about a month and my nails were awful.
The second thing is lotion. I moisturize almost every 2 hours. If your hands are dry the filing dust will stick in the dry patches. I love Hempz in Pomegranate
Third thing is a gentle gylcolic peel. I use one from Entity Beauty which is amazing. It is a gentle chemical peel and not a harsh scrub. I use mine 1 -2x's a week.
Finally, gloves. Lots and lots of gloves. I usually layer 2 pairs when I am filing because I tear through them easily.
So that's my secret to how I keep my hands nice.
Stay tuned I will be sharing the products I recommend to grow nails.
