Bloggers Challenge 2014 #5 Nails
Now, onto the post. The bloggers challenge 2014 is where we are set a topic to write about, Gaby from AnotherGirlyBlog sets the posts, and we have a new post to write about every 2 weeks. This fortnight its all about nails. It is a wide ranging post so I just thought I would talk for a little bit about every little aspect of nail care.
I think nails are often overlooked when we are trying to look after ourselves. Your nails can really reveal a lot about how we are feeling on the inside and so when your nails are splitting and breaking, it may be a sign that you need to eat more fruits and vegetables, and to eat more calcium (milk, cheese) to try and strengthen them.
I'm a culprit too of not looking after my nails enough. I get very split nails and I don't look after my cuticles at all and so I'm making a valiant effort to try and improve them.
The one thing I love to do is to paint my nails, I paint them at least 3 times a week if not more and so inevitably I have a very big nail polish collection. I wear both nudes, bright's and darks no matter what time of the year. I just grab which bottle ever takes my fancy that day.
If you are like me, and very busy most of the time, you will want your nail polish to dry fast so that you can get on with the rest of your day, and not have to wait for 30 minutes for the colour to set and risk smudging ( I hate that), then I use a quick dry spray and I love this particular one.
I find sometimes that working in a manual job, that my nails often get torn and are left with jagged edges and so to get rid of these and to ensure a smooth neat edge to your nail, you can just gently file the edges to ensure they don't catch on your clothes and make the actual nail rim to feel smooth.
Well, that's all for now. I hope you enjoyed this post and let me know in the comments how you care for your nails.
Love and hugs
