Glittery Accent Nail

I love love love to paint my nails with one glittery accent nail. I usually paint my nails a dark charcoal gray with a silver glitter accent nail. This time around I changed it up with a beautiful bright blue and a pink/purple glittery accent nail.

For the blue color I used two coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Blue It. For the glitter accent nail I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Rockstar Pink. Rockstar Pink is a really pretty pink/purple/blue/red/silver glittery nail polish. It's an extremely versatile glitter color that can match just about any other color you'd paint your nails. While I haven't tried it yet, I bet it'd look great over black nail polish as well. I was super excited when I found both of these colors at my local Walmart for only $2!

To achieve the look above, I used Nail Tek  foundation II for a base coat followed by two coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Blue It on every nail and two coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Rockstar Pink on only the ring finger of both hands. I then used Orly Won't Chip as a top coat. Muy bonita!!

What color do you like to paint your nails??

My favorite cuticle creme - Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme Review

Ladies, take a look at your hands. Take a really close look at your cuticles specifically. Have the winters left them dried, cracked and just plain ugly?

Blech, I hateee nasty cuticles. I hate the feel of them, the look, and most of all, I hate when I get hangnails that get caught and rip off. Then you have nasty cracked cuticles with small sores that for some reason, hurt really bad!

I've recently started using  Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme. My cuticles are so soft and moisturized. Plus, the cuticle creme smells fantastic! I really love anything that smells lemon-y and fresh. 

So what are the benefits of cuticle creme? One of the reasons you have cuticles is to protect the new nail cells from bacteria and fungus. When your cuticles get dry and icky, you're leaving them open to bacteria. Moisturized cuticles will prevent the nail from becoming infected. I've also heard that it will help your nails grow! I recently took off my artificial nails (gross I know!) so my nails are breaking and splitting every chance they get. Hopefully, Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme will help my nails to grow long and strong :)

Do you use cuticle creme? If so, what's your favorite brand?
