Girly Girl Mani Essentials!

Thursday, May 29, 2014

It's no secret that i adore a great mani.  I'm constantly playing with new hues and searching for fun new ways to express myself through my nail options!  A must for pretty nails is to arm yourself with a great cuticle treatment!  I was recently introduced to an all natural option that has been working wonders on mine!  Nail Butter is incredibly nourishing and works its magic by applying a small amount on each nail and rubbing upwards into the cuticle.  I do this for 30 seconds on each nail every night (hint... it helps to keep this beauty on my night stand so that i don't forget).  It is suggested that you do this twice a day for 30 days and then once a day thereafter but quite honestly, i have only been doing it once a day and it's working well.  Oh and this baby smells amazing.  In fact, this is one of the reasons i use it at bed time... the scent is so calming that it helps me ease into my beauty sleep.  Nail Butter is a wonderful all natural option that works beautifully to keep your nails looking pristine.  And no worries... this baby has only been tested on humans, all of whom have experienced nothing but fabulous cuticles!

The next step for my girly girl mani is Pixi's newest nail polish in Baby Girl!  This pink is seriously everything a girly girl could ever want!  It's bright, happy and perfect for the summer!  The formula is super smooth with a chip-resistant finish (trust me, it stayed put for almost a full week) and built-in UV protection to prevent polish discoloration.  As with all Pixi polishes, this baby is 3 Free: Toluene, Formaldehyde and DBP free!  Baby Girl is the perfect 'pretty in pink' polish!  Trust me, you'll want to swipe this beauty on your nails and toes alike this summer!

So there you have it... my secret to a gorgeous girly girl mani!  Thank you SO MUCH for reading! XO, Carla - FMM
