Happy Boxing Day everyone! Hope your Christmas gatherings went well. As you can tell, mine were really hectic and busy so I didn't have much time to blog. I will remedy that soon though :) Anyway, I wanted to update about what was going on in my life recently.
Firstly, I have actually borrowed this book: Rescue Your Nails by Ji Baek which is basically all about the proper way to take care of your nails, give yourself a mani and pedi and how to paint your nails well. Despite painting my nails pretty regularly, reading this book made me realise there were still a lot of steps that were missing in my nail polish routine. And I'm not even done with the book yet! Some tips that I found really interesting/useful were:
- that unused facial scrubs could be used to exfoliate hands and even feet as part of the hand care regimen
- the three ways to sterilise tools to prevent bacteria, fungus and viruses
- the proper way to use a buffing block (which actually prompted me to go out and get one)
- nail polish smudges on the nail itself can be easily remedied! Just use a clean nail polish brush to paint nail polish remover onto the smudge to even out the polish and once that dries, you can just go over with the same colour
I really liked these tips that I found in the book and when I finish the book (which is hopefully soon), I'll be sure to share more.
Secondly, I also have an Instagram account. Okay, well, I kinda always had an Instagram account. It's just that it started getting neglected when I got my blog. The account is currently called "nailcrush". I will change the name soon to be similar to my blog name but I will update again when that actually happens. Anyway, I'm going to start posting nail art more often soon and those, as well as my normal swatches will be posted on Instagram.
Lastly, I have a couple of Christmas manis to share.
Thanks for reading and happy holidays ♥
