I’m pretty anal when it comes to getting a manicure. I’ve actually become an at-home manicure freak because I don’t really trust nail salons to keep their utensils germ free. After all these years of giving myself manicures, I would say that I’ve become an expert at painting my own nails.
I’m pretty consistent when it comes to giving myself a manicure every week. I just can’t stand it when my finger nails look crazy with chipped-up nail polish. Don’t take it personal, but I shudder when I see other women wearing sandals or flip flops and the nail polish on their toes are jacked up!
Over the years, it seems like I’ve amassed a pretty good size collection of nail polish. However, for some reason I don’t have dark purple (which some of you know is my favorite color). So I was pretty excited when I was sent Lippman’s vivacious violet which has been dubbed “Call Me Irresponsible”. Check out how it looks in the picture above.
I LOVE Nailene’s french tip pen…so much easier and less messy to use. I’ve always worn white french tips, but I was in a sassy mood so I tried the black french tip pen. I also used the nail art for a sassier look 😉
The best part of giving myself an at-home manicure is rubbing Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream into my cuticles. It smells absolutely heavenly and keeps my cuticles soft.
