In this video I will show you how I (personally & professionally) do a manicure.

Quick Step Tips:

1.  Sanitze. Even if it’s your own hand.

2.  File. side-to-center with a gentle 240 grit file.

3.  Soak in a warm water bath.

4.  Remove cuticle with a cuticle remover.  Don’t scrape or press  hard on the nail plate.

5.  Buff gently towards the free edge with cuticle oil.

OPI “DS Classic” – Oh.. It’s sooo classic alright. Love. Love. Love.

OPI’s “DS Classic”

Nudes. Neutrals. Sheers. Beige. All the colors of the trend-bow right now.

I felt as if my Mani needed to be “in trend” this week, so I went towards a Nude color, then I saw this!!!

Nude with diamond-y sparkle… Oh sooo perfect.

Don’t rule out Nudes if you are wanting some flare this week. You may end up finding a win-win color. Especially if you are needing a color that is very grounding, reliable, and represents wealth this week.

Play and Enjoy,
