A special thanx to Scrangie for her blue mood that inspired me!
And my cuticles are healing nicely,
I have actually been using sesame oil at night with the gloves. I'm on this "all natural" kick that I'm hoping is more than a phase. I'm hoping that it lasts forever, but the moisturizing and the cuticle cream (I'm using Burt's Bees Cuticle Cream)is working wonders. I'm using the cuticle cream several times a day when I think about it and moisturizing afterward. I wish they would put the cuticle cream in a tube like Chapstick. It would be way more convenient to just roll up the tube and swipe it on my cuticles. I wonder if anyone makes cuticle cream that dispenses like that?
The color that I put on is NYC Skin Tight Denim with NYC White Lights Glitter polish over top. I used Orly Bonder for the base and Creative UV topcoat. I really love the NYC colors, but the polish brush is way thin... it was hard for me to use. It seemed to go on smooth and I didn't get any bubbles, but I also put it in the freezer upside-down about 5 minutes before I put it on. That has been working for me since I started this "self nail care" endeavor. It took me a long time to learn how to polish. The bubbles I used to get were terrible!
Well, anyway, thanx again everyone who has helped me out. My nails are looking better every day. I just need to practice more. Hopefully I will get to be as good as you guys!
