OBSESSION: Nail Necessities

The 3 Main Ingredients For A Chic DIY Polish

1. I had never really thought of cuticle lotion as an at-home manni/peddi necessity until I got a sample of this cuticle lotion from a friend and have since developed a slight obsession.

2. This particular shade of matte cobalt blue is one of the mosted unique colors I’ve seen. Every time I wear this color, people`ask me where I got it… I love to watch their shocked expressions upon hearing how inexpensive it is.

3. I spent a large number of years desperately seeking a topcoat that is fast drying, extremely durable, and leaves a smooth, high gloss shine.  It wasn’t until months ago that my seemingly hopeless search was ended by a good friend of mine who directed me to Jessica Nail Salon on Sunset Blvd. to find that my mythical “wonder-polish” really did exist after all.
