How I Look After My Nails

You may be surprised to learn that recently this has been my most requested video. Given the state of my NOTD posts lately that’s kind of shocking I know but for the most part I do take pride in my nails and seek out the glossiest of glossy top coats which I think id the main reason people wanted me to film this. It’s no great secret you just have to find a good one that you like. Another point to mention is that I was blessed with long nail beds. I always file my nails down short but they look long because of this, there’s nothing you can do to alter the shape of your nails on your fingers so apologies in advance if you think I have some magic secret, I don’t. I actually had no idea what a nail bed was before I started blogging so I had no idea my nails were anything to aspire to but I do consider myself lucky now. I don’t take super great care of my nails on a day to day basis but once every couple of weeks I like to give them a good manicure and let them have night to breathe. They tend to get flaky and dry because I wear polish 90% of the time so although they may look nice on the outside they’re crying underneath but in this video I show you a few things I do to try to keep them in good health. Luckily I’ve finally made it through my Essie collection, repainting so frequently did nothing good for my nails so I can let them have a little time off now but you still have plenty of NOTD posts to come, don’t worry.

Here’s the video..

    What’s the first product you use on your cuticle? The one that’s the cream with a pusher at the top?
