What I Use For My Gel Manicures

Alright ladies & gents, this post is going to be for my #manifam! I get asked alllllll of the time about the equipment and products I use for my gel manicures, and I realized I hadn’t posted about them in a really long time. So today I wanted to share my favorites with you. (more…)

Holiday Manicures

‘Tis the season for some holiday manicures! While there are fabulous polish colors all around, I have narrowed it down and selected my top 8:

4: Essie – Good As Gold

5: Essie – Too Too Hot

6: Sephora РOnly Gold For Me

Now before you get to painting, I have a few tips on how to make your holiday manicures not only look great, but last all season long!

1) Keep your nails short: Between all of the shopping, wrapping, baking & decorating, your nails are likely to take a hit. By by keeping them short & filed with a rounded or squoval shape, you’re less likely to suffer any splitting, cracks or breakage.

2) Moisturize:  As you know, I am a HUGE fan of cuticle oil Рespecially in the winter!

The cold weather tends to make our nails more brittle, and our cuticles more dry. Use an oil or balm on your nails & beds regularly as well as a hand lotion. Take advantage of the yummy holiday scents!

3) Consider Gel: I usually always have a Gelish gel manicure, but if you don’t typically get them, consider splurging during the holidays! It will hold strong for all of your Christmas festivities and right through New Years!
