A Better Manicure.

Nails, one of my favourite topics to talk about and today I want to share with you some of the things I do to help and pamper my nails.I never sit down and give myself a full blown manicure but, being a complete nail polish fanatic, there are some things I like to do to my nails to help and treat them. 

Before painting my nails I always like to file them so they are smooth and a good shape, I am trying to keep my thumbs a shorter length because when they get too long they go very weak and flaky. So I will cut those down with some nail scissors - obviously! To elongate my nails I push back the dead skin around my cuticles as this makes my nails look longer. Keeping with the cuticle them, I have a few treatments to help my cuticles. The first is the Cuticle and Nail Refiner by Sally Hanson and describes its self as an intensive treatment for dry and rough cuticles, it works by massaging it into your cuticles and leaving it for 60 seconds before washing it off. Another cuticle treatment, that is better on the go or when I am in a rush and want something quick, is the Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream. It is a wax-like cream that you massage around your nails and just wait to let it sink in.

Now onto the nail polishes and I use on my nails to treat them. I like to use the Nail HD All In One Treatment (*) before applying a colour vanish, it is full of great products like argon oil and minerals. Overall it does a bit of everything to help your nails and I find my nails always feel a lot better and healthier after using this. Then I will go on to applying a base coat, which at the moment is the Orly Top 2 Bottom, but any base coat works well. I have chose two very 'manicure - esk' polishes by sticking to the natural baby pink shades - I have the Rimmel French Manicure Pro in French Rose and the Chanel Nail Colour in Flamme Rose. Finally I have my favourite top coat, Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat, I won't talk about it too much as I have done a review here.  After my manicure I will use the Soap and Glory Hand Food to keep my hands feeling soft and pampered between nail painting sessions!

What treatments/manicure do you like to give to your hands and nails?

  1. I'm so so lazy when it comes to nails, but I do love Soap & Glory Hand Food, if I had your collection of stuff I'd probably look after my nails a lot better haha x

    1. I only have this much stuff because I am obsessed with nails and nail polish! x

  2. I have the Soap & Glory hand cream its one of my favourite hand creams because it absorbs really quickly and doesn't leave you with that sticky feeling that some other hand creams tend to do! Great post Becca :) xx
