Hi there! Lots of exciting stuff going on on the blog today! How about a GIGANTIC giveaway courtesy of Barielle? Good, yes?
Recently I was given the opportunity to show you my "Perfect Barielle Manicure" and also get a chance to give away the items I used so you can create your perfect at home manicure. Now you can take a peek into what I use to keep my nails "showroom ready" for the blog.
Here is a quick shot of all the products together so you can see the prize in one picture.
First I like to treat my hands at least once a week with a sugar or salt scrub. I have a couple of them that I keep on rotation. This 60 Second Mani-Pedi is a great option. It sloughs all the old icky cells away and leaves my hands feeling refreshed.
This is what the container looks like when you open it, I just use my finger to stir it up.
All I do is scoop some out into my wet hand and scrub scrub scrub!
Voila! Here I am mid scrub! I just rinse it all off afterwards and rub any excess oil into my skin.
Gotta keep those cuticles look good as well! They are a very important part of nail health. I use the Extra Gentile Cuticle Minimizer . Just squeeze some of this on your cuticles, let it sit for a couple minutes and then push any back that you need to. Barielle includes a pusher with it, so use that one!
When I am not doing that minimizer, I am ADDICTED to oils. I have a bunch of oils from a lot of places and this is what Barielle has, it is the Intensive Nail Renewal Oil. All you have to do with this is just brush it on and let it sink it itself or you can rub it in. I keep oils all over the place and generally even carry one in my purse too.
Once you are ready to paint, you need a great base coat. If you look at the previous photos, you will see that I have some ridgy nails. In order to combat this, I use Barielle's Hydrating Ridge Filler. This product is AWESOME. I have pretty much gone through a whole bottle of this already.
All you have to do next is paint your nails with the color of your choice. Here I went with Orange Parfait from the Sweet Treats collection. I used two coats of it here.
The only thing that is left is to put some top coat on it! Here I have used their Gel Top Coat...look how shiny it is!
In addition to this, I want to mention a product that I keep next to my bed. This is the Nail Strengthener Cream, I put this on every night before I go to bed and I feel it has really made my nails stronger. I need to get a little tube of it to keep at work just in case my nails start to feel dry. You don't need much so a container of this will last you a nice long while!
There ya have it! Just in case anyone was wondering what my nail care routine is, here it is!
I try very hard to maintain my nails and take good care of them. Gotta keep them looking good!
Now on to the giveaway, this is going to be open to US residents only! 18 or older unless you have parental permission. A BIG thank you goes out to Barielle for sponsoring this! Make sure you enter!
