Sorry it's been a while, I had a bunch of posts all lined up for a challenge I was doing, then ended up not doing the challenge, so I had nothing to post!
Anyways, on a FB group I am in, a friend of mine posted that her friend had a trick for nasty dry cuticles, and since mine were less than stellar, I decided to try it and document it for you, and I'm happy to say it worked! so thanks Casandra for the tip! (PS check out her blog, she mentions the tip there too!)
The tip is to use Olive Oil (yes just regular olive oil from your kitchen) and put it all over your cuticles, then wrap your fingers in bandaids and leave it on for an hour or so. I would suggest opening the bandaids before putting the oil on.
|These are my cuticles before, I know you just gasped!|
|After the Olive Oil and Band-Aids are on|
|After the band-aids came off|
Quite a difference huh? I left the band-aids on for about an hour and a half, then took them off, washed my hands and applied OPI AvoJuice lotion. Thanks so much for the tip Casandra, that is definitely gonna be a regular treatment here!
Now for my nails! For this mani I used this tutorial from the lovely Asami at Nails by Asami. check her out, she is amazing with the nail art! To do this mani you need nail strips to make the pumpkin face. I used Incoco since that's what is used in the tutorial and I found some on clearance for $2.99.

I love this mani so much it's been on for 5 days! I'm going to take it off today and do it on my toes using an orange glow in the dark polish!
