Super shiny Mylar nails. These are acrylic with Mylar pieces encapsulated on the tips.
I had to share this photo of my beautiful daughter's sweet pink nails :-)
I was asked a question last week about cutting cuticles. My first response is Yikes! Don't do it. But I know some of you are going to need to cut your own cuticles at some point so my biggest piece of advice for cuticle care is only cut what is already dead tissue. Do not cut the living tissue at the base of your nails. It is there to protect you from infections. If you need to nip a hangnail use a sharp pair of cuticle nippers and place them at the base of the hangnail and cut, do not tear at the hangnail with your nails, teeth or dull nippers, this will do more harm than good.
My #1 tip for healthy cuticles is oil. My second tip is to take a washcloth and gently push back the skin at the cuticle area and around the nail after a shower, bath or washing dishes. If you gently rub a warm soapy washcloth around your nails you will exfoliate and smooth dry, dead skin.
Then use cuticle oil and smooth on hand lotion for an at home mini-manicure.
Please send me your questions nails, jewelry or business related I will be happy to answer them as best I can on the next Tuesday Tips.
