#1 Spring Pastels

OK Here goes my next challenge. Still wondering why I decided to this, and then I look at the manis and get excited so here goes nothing! Side Note: The first challenge I did I lost interest after the third mani. Sadly, I tend to lose interest quickly on stuff. Not sure how I'm managing to even keep this blog going considering I don't have a great blog track record. Anyway, I digress.

And the challenge is...

I created a pastel mani (the dotted easter eggs) right about the time this challenge commenced but didn't know about it yet. I debated whether to back track or create another pastel mani and decided to start fresh as I felt like it was kinda cheating otherwise. I'm soooooo glad I did! I finally did a sponge mani and it was so easy and fun! Yay!

I started with Yellow on Ring and Thumb and Silver on index, middle, and pinky and then sponged purple and pink on all of them. 

Side note: if any of you have followed anything about my quest so make my nails better (I swear I will have another post with reviews of what I'm using, one of these days) I started this blog with ugly peeling nails and the nails are getting better but my cuticles are rigged and need some more help. Unfortunately I don't have time to do the cuticle remover more than about once a week. I try to use Burt's Bees Lemon Cuticle Cream every day but that doesn't always happen. Anyways, my question for you all is- Any suggestions for making my cuticles prettier? I trim them- is that bad?

OK peeps! Until next time :)

  1. Moisturize! Just putting lotion on your hands after you wash them helps loads. My mom does that a lot, and her cuticles are so nice! I, myself, do it only when my hands are especially dry because I hate how lotion feels on my hands and I feel like I can't touch anything...but even then, you can just rub lotion into the back of your hands.

  2. Pretty sponging! I think that trimming your cuticles can make it more difficult for them to look pretty, but I'm not positive. I know for sure that trimming them makes the skin grow back tougher. I use Burts Bees too, but my cuticles are never perfect.
