NAIL CARE ROUTINE FAVORITES!

Hello everyone,


Who else loves nailing the day, the week, the year with amazing nails? This is something that I enjoy spending my time doing. I have created my own nail care routine through the years, which works for me and makes me happy. Taking care of my nails weekly has easily turned into my "me time". It feels like my own therapy session where I completely focus on the details of what I want my nails to look like. My favorite part is deciding the nail polish and the design I want to create. There's almost always nail studs or sparkle involved and often I like painting my nails two different shades. It's so FUN!

Okay, as you can tell by now, I might be a little too obsessed with all things nails...you can call this a fetish of mine. hahaha 🤣 I'm sure I must not be the only one! We girls enjoy and take pride in having pretty nails!!! Whenever I have my nails done, I feel more like a lady. This simple act definitely makes me more confident. Like always, it's the little things we do for ourselves that count!😉

Also, I've never gotten my nails done by someone else because I feel like I already have all the tools I need. Plus, like I said, this is something I really LOVE doing! I have my own nail salon of soothing music with plenty of nail polish colors all at the comfort of my home.

As this hobby of mine continues to grow, I decided now it's a great time to share with you my favorite nail tips and tricks. The products that work for me and make my nails as happy as can be!!! 😁

TWEEZERMAN Mini Nail Kit

Before even thinking about painting my nails (most likely a vibrant color), I always get them clean and ready. This Tweezerman mini kit comes to the rescue every single time. What's great about it is that you can literally take it with you anywhere. Slip it into your purse or bring it along for your travels. Its got the very essentials...cuticle pusher + cleaner, a nail clipper and a nice file to shape the nails. 

One thing that I have found works for me is I shape and cut the death cuticle skin right after a hot shower. That's when the skin is softest and easier to work with. It takes only a few minutes! Then I take a nail buffer block and smoothen the nails, so it's easier to apply the nail polish. This of course, leads to my favorite part, which is coming up with the design and color shades I want to use. 

Just a week ago, I bought this metallic 12 pack set of nail polishes from Amazon. I was so excited to try it out that I quickly decided I had to paint my nails in two colors. I went for this unique metallic green and yellow. Colors which make me even more summer happy! 💚💛 What's great is I have been wearing this design for a few days now and it hasn't chipped the slightest. I can definitely make it through this weekend and then I'll pick new colors to sport. I don't think I can get tired of the way the metallic polishes shine. I know some people like nudes and others like fun, playful, vibrant shades like me. Which one are you?               






When it comes to sealing the nail polish, I'm very fond of Sally Hansen's products. I have used her top coat for years and still find that it works for me. It gives my nails a nice finishing glossy touch and dries them within seconds, so I can get on with my day. I hear the Deborah Lippmann top coat is also a winner. One I'm for sure looking forward to trying because it has gotten so many positive reviews. What top coat do you use?  

Since I like all things nail related and gadgets that help make my life easier, I'm looking to get a pedicure nail dryer soon. If you have any suggestions on a really great one, please let me know. Looks like I will definitely be turning my desk area into a mini nail salon when I'm inspired to do my nails, which is very often. 

Just as I like collecting different colored nail polishes, I'm a maniac for nail art (studs, stamp designs, anything unique). When the mood strikes, I enjoy creating something pretty and different. I can't say that I have always been happy with the outcome, but you know this can happen to the best of us...🤣

What does your nail care routine look like? Do you like to keep up with nail trends? If so, which one is your favorite?

  10. I love to do my nails, but I'm super clumsy and I have very little art to do it, so I have to go to the manicurist every month to show off my pretty nails. I really admire people who have knack and can do it to themselves, I think it's great ♥.♥

  14. I like the metallic polishes! I don't take as much time as I should to do my nails - it makes me happy when I've painted my nails but I find it tricky to make time with the kids! I do try when I can to have a cheerful colour on to make me smile though! :)

    Hope you are having a good weekend :) It's another chilly winter day here, but we still spent a little time at the playground this morning :)

  20. Hello dear Radi,

    How nice is this! I love that this kind of details can be an accessory right? There is no necessity to always buy clothes since you can also give a twist to your look with your hair, make up or nails! These colors scream SUMMER and it is nice to see that you have your perfect personal nail kit at home! I am sure you will be trying a lot of different things in order to get entertained with it :)

  35. Your nails always look so pretty, Radi! I love the girly vibes in this post. Can you believe I don't manicures?! Whenever I paint my nails, I always feel like my nails can't breathe. Lol...but, I love pedicures. Go figure! I love Sally Hansen products too! The top coat you feature in this post, I use. :)
