My Favorite Manicure Product


This is my must-have at home manicure item:


I know I have talked about it before, but I wanted to show you the results. Julie showed me this and I now swear by it.

Check this out:

Before:

Apply a generous amount, wait a minute.

Take a q-tip, rub your cuticles and they literally dissolve off. It's magical.


After:


and the before picture wasn't that bad, trust me it's been worse before.

Now: this week has been absolutely INSANE at work, I'm heading off to chicago Monday AM and have a to do-list for the weekend thats pretty damn long. So why do I paint my nails like its my second job? Well, long story short it's because I used to BITE my nails like it was my second job. It was a nervous habit. So I am always terrified I'll start to bite them again, and am constantly painting pretty colors to distract myself.

So, somehow in my crazy mad week, I changed my color 3 times. and I realized:  it's still part of my nervousness. Here are my colors this week:

{OPI - Steady as she rose}


{Essie: Turquoise and Caicos}
I was mortified at how bright it was, being its still winter...


so I headed to the extreme opposite side....
{Essie: Midnight Cami}- (it looks way more blue in person)


I should post one more time before I zip out to Chi-town. and potentially have some guest bloggers while I'm gone. It's going to be madness.

Any bloggers have recs of where to eat,shop ect?? especially shopppp!!! Who am I kidding I'll prob have no time.

Love y'all!

Aw thank you Morgan! I worry that I ramble on and on. And yes it's like 4.50 a bottle and usually easy to find! Let me know if you try it!!

I was wanting the Turquoise and Caicos color for MONTHS and then I finally got it and was a bit surprised by how bright it was also.

Same here Carly. I limit myself on how many nail polishes I buy a month and was waiting for this one for some time. Then it was like an Easter color! Ahh

hahaha that is exactly why I keep my nails painted because I can never stop biting! I though I would grow out of that habit by 26 years old but still haven't... definitely want to try that cuticle remover! Have fun in Chicago, I want to go so bad!!
