Manicures and Pedicures

07 November 2012

I love having pretty nails. I would love for my nails to match my outfit everyday. I try my hardest to change my nail color up every few days.

My problem is I'm not good at making my manicure look professional. My nails are only cute for one day. After that they start to look dull. I use Sally Hansen nail polish and a few cheaper nail polishes also. Im not sure which ones are the best. Like I said, "they all look cute on day one".

When I go to the nail salon they make my nails look super cute. I have to pay $11 and the manicure last me all of 3 days. Its way cheaper when I do it myself every few days. What's a girl to do? I need someone to give me some pointers on keeping my nails looking good and what brand of polishes I should invest in.

This week I decided to try and "take care" of my manicure. On day two of having my manicure I decided to put a coat of clear polish on my nails. Then on Day 6 I put another coat of clear polish on my nails. Today is day 7.I was able to make it last for a whole week! Im so proud of myself.
Here's the picture


I still need more pointers on how to take care of my natural nails. Putting clear polish on them will not always do the trick but that did preserve my nail polish. What should i do to keep my cuticles looking nice?
ANY and ALL ideas are greatly appreciated!!!

  3. I think they turned out really well. I am not a "nails" girl but recently got gel nails b/c my husband likes them. Maybe I should try painting them myself again...I can't be but so bad!

  4. Hello! Found your blog through Create With Joy. I don't usually wear any nail polish at all. I spent 9 years in the Army and couldn't wear any. Then I got into the healthcare field and they frown on wearing it or fake nails, so I just never got into a habit of wearing it. Your manicure looks a whole heck of a lot better than anything that I could ever do myself!! You are one brave woman!!

    1. You should go and get a manicure and just get clear polish on your nails. It will still look pretty! Im following you back now

  5. I use clear nail polish but there is this calcium gel that is clear that works wonders, It protects my natural nails more than clear nail polish. for cuticles you can use Sally Hensen's wide range of cuticle removal products.
