Hey loves!I asked you all what you wanted to see on my blog and someone mentioned my nail care routine, so here it is!
|Julep Hand Cream With SPF 30, Rainbow Honey Cuticle Stick (Vanilla Dreams), 365 Days Of Color Cuticle Oil (Easter Garden), Nail Tek Foundation Xtra, Essie Grow Faster, Seche Vite and a Crystal Nail File.|
This is all stuff I will use on a daily basis to help maintain my nails.
I will start off by filing my nails with my Crystal nail file (Which I bought on Ebay). I love these files just because I can wash them and continue using them, and I got like 6 for $2 lol. I know a lot of people aren't fans of crystal files, but I love it. I always wash my hands after I file my nails, just to get rid of all the nail residue on my hands.
I apply a thin layer of Nail Tek Foundation Xtra. I normally wouldn't have bought this, but I got it for free at Sallys because I bought 2 China Glaze polishes. I'm still not entirely sure I like it, I'm finding my nail polish chips the next day when I use this, but it seems like my nails are growing faster while using this. I also find it weird that it dries to a matte finish (as you can see in the picture)
I apply a layer of Essie Grow Faster on top of the Nail Tek. I only recently started doing this because I find that grow faster works better as a base, and the 2 of them have really helped my nails grow (except for my poor pinky which just broke).
I stopped taking pictures at this point because my final step is applying moisturizer (Julep Hand Cream), and then cuticle oil/balm. I usually use 365 Days Of Color cuticle oil, or Rainbow Honeys cuticle stick, I find they both work amazingly. Just remember to not leave your cuticle stick on your purse on a hot day lol, one of mine got a little bit melty.
I hope this answered any questions you had, and I hope you enjoyed seeing a post that's a little bit different! :)
Thanks for reading! xox
