Manicure Routine

My blog started as something for my nails and since I started incorporating makeup and bath products I’ve strayed away from its roots and I want to start bringing those nail posts back. My first step towards that is my manicure routine, which I try to do about once a week/when my nails need it. I’m not a nail technician or specialist nor do I have any nail qualifications but this is how I look after my nails! I know people will probably say I’m doing it wrong or I should do it differently but this is just the way I’ve always done it! First of all, my before picture is shameful, I let my nails get really bad because I became lazy/work is still taking it’s toll… Let’s hope the after looks okay 😉Read More »

Naked Nails (& a temporary goodbye)

Hello 🙂

I’m afraid I won’t be blogging for 5 weeks 😦 I have to go away to Ireland for a mapping project for my third year dissertation for uni so I won’t be able to paint my nails! I thought I’d be able to make a few posts to be scheduled for upload while I’m away but I just haven’t had time between exams, popping home for the weekend and packing so unfortunately my blog will be on hold until I’m back… It also means I’ve had to file my nails down to nubs. I study geology so they’re bound to break when I’m scrabbling around in the rocks and dirt for five weeks.

I hadn’t realise how long my nails had grown! And now I’m sad and my fingers feel stubby. I aim to try and keep going with a basic nail care routine while I’m out there.. just to stop them going back to what they used to be. I’ll be using O.P.I Matte Nail Envy and Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream to keep my nails strong and healthy while I’m away.

I have a fair amount of blog posts lined up for you when I’m back, so make sure to stick around.. I’m not going forever, I’ve only just started! 😉

I’ll be back in 5 weeks!
