Ordinary Manicure

October 25, 2016

I love looking at nail pics on Pinterest and beauty blogs. But really, they look so tedious and complicated.I keep my nails painted to keep myself from picking at them and splitting them. But I have to do them at least once a week because I’m an ordinary girl who lives in the kind-of country. I work, do chores, play with animals. So my nails chip easily within the week.

To be able to afford food, I paint them myself. My routine is this: condition with Burt’s Bees Lemon Cuticle balm. A conditioning coat, usually some type of base coat with calcium or yellow-blocker. Two coats of Essie Millionnails, the best strengthener I’ve found. This is day one. 

Day two is two light coats of chosen nail color with ample time to dry. Day three is one generous coat of color and then Seche Vite to set and dry it. And then the countdown to destruction starts.

So in honor of the ordinary girl everywhere,I present the Ordinary Girl Manicure series.

“Golden Autumn”


The Sally color Brownstone is perfect at any time, and the Revlon Chameleon is an interesting holographic brown green gold.
