Gotta Love Pastels!

#letsnailitsaturday

Spring/Summer is here!


Let me tell you about this Cuticle moisturizer by China Glaze. I usually use hand creams and other cuticle creams but this one I love. I love that it totally smells like berries and it leaves my hand looking like they're fresh from the nail salon because of the sheer red tint. It does leave my cuticles moisturized so I don't get that urge to use my teeth to pull on them! (Eeeew!)

For those of you who are curious, I used Chanel's #517 Mistral (pink), and Color Club's Age of Aquarius.

I don't think I need to show you a tutorial for this one ladies, it's pretty simple really. First, always apply a base coat (I love Color Club's base, it prevents the nails from yellowing and it hardens the nails too)!

Second, apply your primary color, which in this case I used pink. Apply 2 coats for an intense color. Let is dry completely then apply your second color. Apply 2 coats as well. Let it dry COMPLETELY before adding your top coat. My favorite top coat is China Glaze Patent Top Coat. LOVE!

  33. Hi, Sabs.

    Love the cute nail color combo you have going on here. Pink and aqua always look adorable together. The colors remind me of candy too. :) As for the Cuticle Oil, I can sure use one. Mine have a tendency to get dry. Especially in this weather. Plus, I like the idea of a berry scented oil too. :)

    Thank you so much for leaving such a sweet comment on my blog. I definitely enjoyed reading your posts here too. I have yet to watch your videos. I am looking forward to watching them. Thank you also for following. I followed you on the GFC too. I'm probably on your second or third page of followers. :)

    Take care and have a wonderful weekend. :)
