It has been so long since I have splurged on a pedicure much less a manicure so when Groupon offered a mani/pedi for only $22 I was all in. I love the look of having my nails professionally done but it really isn't realistic for me to consistently do right now. Even if we had the money my finger nails grow ridiculously fast and it looks terrible in only a few days. I feel like a pedicure is much more practical for me because it lasts weeks rather than three days. I have decided to get better at painting my nails so that they look manicured without spending the money. I've learned a few things lately.
Your not splurging on the manicure so splurge on the polish. OPI lasts so much longer than cheaper nail polishes, don't forget the base coat and top coat as well. Ulta always has sales on OPI.
Practice makes perfect, don't give up after one try. I have learned to start just before the cuticle because if you use it as the starting point the polish pools there and makes a funny line. Also don't wipe off too much of the polish. OPI has great brushes that hold the right amount of polish.
Coral is super hot right now but the coral I picked for my toes looks too red for me, I wanted pinker. The lady next to me had on such a fun color that is topping my summer must have list...
Go On Green
Great pedicure color, a little too wild for fingers for me.
My best tip for your feet though...
This foot cream does wonders for your feet. Put it on with socks at night and after a few days your feet will look like you just got a pedicure. Using it consistently is the key. I use to have terribly cracked feet but now you can't even tell.
Do you have any more tips for me or hot summer colors I must try?
