My Nail Care Routine
I use a lotion bar for my cuticles every day and whenever they start to feel dry! It’s packed full of cocoa & mango butter, almond oil and beeswax to help seal it all in.
You can also use my jojoba oil roll-on to soften and moisturize your cuticles before your manicure. It’s 100% golden jojoba oil + a nice smell of your choice! Jojoba has long been touted as the miracle oil for softening the skin while being non-greasy. It is easily absorbed and promotes a silky smooth skin. Jojoba oil will help to nourish the skin and prevent dryness. Good stuff right?!
Before I apply my polish, I use a base coat. Right now I’m using essie’s first base base coat, so the polish can really stick to the nail and chip less easily!
After I have applied two coats of my polish, I top it off with Seche Vite’s dry fast top coat. I’m wearing a dark purple glitter top coat over silver today, and it really smooths out the glitter. Love!
To prevent chipping of my polish for when I wash dishes or work with my hands, I wear gloves!
