Happy Friday...Happy Nails!

Yep, it's Friday and we are having a dual baby shower at work.  yep, 2 more girls will soon be joining the world and hopefully the ranks of the POLISH OBSESSED! LOL, I'll make sure to stick a couple of my blog business cards in their onesies and diaper pails :)! *muah muah*!

Okay so for today I have a crazy fun green I sported a couple days ago, hope you like it!

2 coats OPI "Green-which Village" and 2 coats Kleancolor "Chunky Holo Clover" on top.

My poor poor cuticles, this was "custards last stand" for them.  After these photos, I had to take drastic measures. :(

This is what I did and what I do ever time my cuticles get a bad case of the "Winter blahs":

Remove all my polish.
Soak my nails and cuticles in 1 part warm water, 1 part lemon juice and 2 parts warmed olive oil.
After they are soaked, I wash my hands and push back my cuticles, apply cuticle remover, to remove all the dead skin and extra "gunk".
Scrub my cuticles and nails with a nail brush., then wash and dry.

Apply a good hand cream and apply cuticle oil  or your favorite cuticle cream to the cuticles.  I forgot to take pictures after, but next time I do this I'll make a tutorial out of it :) But believe me it works.

Okay back to the polish...the OPI was pretty thin for a cream, definitely needed 2 coats to get full coverage, even then I had streaks, but after applying the Kleancolor in 2 coats, it was all good!

Chunky Holo makes every manicure better, look at the holographic display those chunk are giving...awesome! Next time I use my Kleancolor, I'm using it over a darker green, so I get more holographic effect! NICE!

Happy Friday!!!!

Pin It!

WOW! Now *that* is a green! I like the little holo specks over it - it breaks up the WOW in that polish.

that chunky holo is amazing! and thanks for the tip for dry cuticles. Mine are always in such bad shape... I will have to try this out :)

Gorgeous combo! I have chunky holo Bluebell and Fuchsia. They do make any polish look amazing. I find that they take a really long time to dry though. I may have to get chunky holo Clover!
