SO, ON WITH THE SHOW!!
I also have mattes as a treatment - because I didn't want them in my stash.
This is where I keep all of my other "stuff":
This tote has truly saved my life!! You can order yours from organize.com here You will have a plethora of totes to which to pick from as well as colors and different shapes. This tote here only cost me $23 and it was worth every penny!! I know michaels and joanne's have similar one's for scrapbooking - but this one here has been a life saver!!
...and this is what she looks like when she's full!! I put EVRYTHING in here!!
After my soak and cuticle cleaning and get the treatments I'm using, I pick a color, grab my tote and go to wherever I plan on doing my mani anywhere in the house!! My lap board stays by my bed so I dont have to carry that anywhere. What a time saver this is for me.
Now for the hardest part of doing a mani - this part can literally take me hours if not days -
Where do I get my colors from you may be asking????
(I swore I would NEVER do this....)
...there are just the ones I cleaned out from last week - I still have three more drawers of which are still in mayhem - that I refuse to tackle at this moment. So it is still in disarray - but chaotically organized in cigar boxes!!
After all is said and done from the soaking, and decuticlizing (did I just make up a another word), exfoliating, priming and polishing, I don't go to bed without putting on a heavy duty emollient cream and some cotton gloves (I could not show you pictures of my gloves because they were dirty and in the wash - I need to get a second pair, anyway).
Throughout the day I use:
I am not one of those persons that has issues using oil on their cuticles so I will use these through out the day - and sometime I will use both - depending on how dry my hands and nails are.
I drink water constantly,take biotin and prenatal vitamins religiously and moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!!
I NEVER, NEVER, NEVER do any kind of house work or chore without some type of gloves on and I will put on a hand cream before putting the gloves on so that my hands will be moisturizing while I'm cleaning. I love it!!
Well, that does it for me today - I know this was long and lengthy - but I just wanted to show you my entire routine and hope that I have encouraged something new or reinforced something old.
Unitl Next Time - Happy Polishing!!
DONT BE A GHOST - LEAVE ME A POST!!
