Healthy Nails – growing long and strong!

3 Feb

Last year Kassi and I both had major nail drama.  In short, our nails were a disaster.  We wrote about it here and here.

Nailtiques fixed the peeling and breaking problem like a champion

New problem? Dryness, especially in the cuticles.

Solution?  More Nailtiques, of course!

So what’s different?  Switching from Formula 2 for brittle/peeling nails to Formula 1 to maintain a healthy nail.

Adding?

Nailtiques Oil Therapy to apply to cuticles.  I’m sort of crazy about this scent.  It’s kind of citrusy and perfumey.  Likey.

Nailtiques is available at Ulta, CVS, Walgreens.  We both really like it.  We have crazy strong nails, all thanks to these little vials.

Huzzah!

This color is perfect for fall – winter.  Wouldn’t it be super cute with a glittery contrast nail?!  Or you can add a matte top coat to it like Essie Matte About you!

October must have – Matte Nail Polish.

22 Oct

It’s time to update your fall colors, especially with nails.  Using a matte top coat to change the texture of your current polish is an easy, and cheap, way to change up your manicure.

My favorite Matte top coat is Essie “Matte About You” – It’s $10 at Ulta.

Look at how excellent black looks matte:
