CONTEST: Happy Beautiful Christmas Wk7

Tips and toes transformed with colours. A week of pampered nails is coming your way.

Want a perfect mani-pedi experience? Here are 5 tips from HBC:
1.    Remove traces of old polish with a nail polish remover.
2.    Soak nails in warm, soapy water then add a few drops of essential oil like lavender or peppermint.
3.    Clip tips straight across and gently push cuticles back (resist the urge to trim them). Use a sharp nipper to cut hang nails, and lightly lift away dirt under the nail bed using an orange stick.
4.    File nails to leave edges smooth after clipping. Apply lotion and spray nail surfaces with rubbing alcohol to disinfect and prep them for polish. Wipe dry.
5.    Apply your choice of lacquer starting from the base of the nail brushing outwards. Use a cotton swab or a cotton-covered stick dipped in nail polish remover to remove excess polish on the sides. Finish with a coat of clear polish.

Women of today are so lucky to experiment with whatever nail colour they want, so give your nails the love they deserve with subtle to vibrant hues enriched with Vitamins C and E like San San nail polishes. Take 5 of these for yourself when you answer this week’s question on my FB page click click click.

  1. Take care of your nails between salon visits.File your nails regularly and always keep them short.If your nails are exposed to chemicals, moisture, water, etc, it could result in split peeling nails or allergic reaction. Wear rubber gloves to protect your nails or coat them with some cotton.Never use something like scissors for both for infected and non infected nails.As a full time mom,sometimes I forgot to visit salon.It was important to pamper ourselves twice a month.

  2. For me, fabulous looking nails can complete one's look, some women don't go shy in spending monies on manicures that will leave their nails looking enviable. Here are some tips to have a fab looking nails:

    1. Your nails are true reflection of what you eat. Eating fast foods will in no way make your nails healthy and strong.

    2. Hand lotions help to moisturize the hands and strenghthen the nails, so be sure to use them after your hands have been in water.

    3. Ensure that you do not use nails or blades to remove nail polish this will do a lot of damage to the nails.

    4. You can put your nail polish in the freezer so as to keep the nail polish smooth and perfect for the next use.

    5. An inexpensive and quick way to fix dry or brittle nails is to use petroleum jelly. Ensure that you carry a small jar everywhere, massaging it into your cuticles and nails as you deem fit.

    6. While filing nails, begin with the sides and brush towards the center, using light stroked in the samae direction. Please try as much as possible to avoid filing nails back and forth, it weakens or break the nails.

    7. To get glossy and gleaming shine, rub olive oil over nails.

    8. Ensure while cleaning the nails, you remove all traces of nail polish.

    That's it! You will have a fab looking nail especially this Christmas.
