GAME-CHANGING TIPS FOR THE PERFECT MANI 💅🏻💖✨
Everyone always wants to know how I manage to keep my nails looking healthy & freshly painted every time they see me. And no, I don’t just paint my nails every time before seeing them. It’s a whole process and habit that I’ve curated for the healthiest strongest nail routine! These are all things that I do and have learned from listening to pro nail artists, from nail care brands, etc.: 1) For a mani that always looks fresh and glossy, repaint your Top Coat every 2-3 days to keep up the shine! You can turn a slightly buffed nail back to it’s glossy glory days easily. This way, your nails will always look like they’ve just been painted and it also prevents chipping! I love my OLIVE&JUNE - Nail Polish Topcoat - it dries fast and looks super shiny. 2) When prepping your nails for your next manicure, shape and cut your nails with your old polish still on! This way, you can easily visualize the shape of your mani without getting distracted or thrown off by your natural nail line. 3) Use a cuticle oil, treatment, or serum! This will help promote healthy growth of your nail, keep away any dry cuticle bits around your nails and always complement your mani with smooth, beautiful cuticles! I love OLIVE&JUNE - Cuticle Serum Set - it’s super lightweight and absorbs quickly into the skin so goodbye greasy fingers! 4) More on the cuticles, try not to cut or trim your cuticles- push them back gently with your nail or a cuticle stick instead! But make sure your cuticles have been softened (like a few minutes after applying a cuticle serum or right after a shower). This is something my grandma taught me when I was very young. By gently maintaining your cuticles with this method, your cuticles will never over grow to the point where you need to trim them! Once you start cutting/trimming them, it’s really hard to stop. 5) If you struggle to keep you hand still while painting your nails, try Olive&June’s Manicure Tool, Poppy! It’s a rubber removable tool that fits over most nail polish handles and its ergonomic shape guides you to make smoother and more even strokes! OLIVE&JUNE - The Poppy Manicure Tool 6) Keep up the hand cream! I keep it on my bedside table as a visual reminder to put some on. If you want a super rich one, try L'OCCITANE - Shea Butter Hand Cream ! But if you want something more lightweight and not as thick/sticky feeling after applying, try OLIVE&JUNE - Olive&June Hand Serum ! This will really help moisturize and nourish your hands daily. 7) Use an oil-based, acetone/alcohol-free nail polish remover. An oil-based one like ella+mila - Soy Nail Polish Remover Unscented will help to nourish nails your nails while removing nail polish instead of stripping them of its natural oils! *I know I mention Olive&June a lot but I just want to mention I’m not sponsored by them, I just truly love their products!

Grow Strong & Healthy Nails✨💅🏻 #CheriePartner
Here are my secrets to growing strong & healthy nails: 1) Stop using acetone nail polish remover (or ones with strong alcohols) as they can really damage the nail. I used to use any kind of nail polish remover that got my polish off fast. But I noticed that over time, my nails got more brittle and dry even with cuticle oil. That’s when I decided to switch to an acetone and alcohol free nail polish remover like ella+mila - Soy Nail Polish Remover Unscented (which is an oil-based soy formula). I’ve noticed that instead of stripping my nails when removing the polish, it actually moisturized my nails at the same time! Now my nails are back to its original, strong condition! 2) Oil your cuticles AND your nail beds everyday! Just make it part of your routine. I’m sure you have a makeup routine or a skincare routine- just add this in as the last step (or first!) of a routine that you already do. Oiling your cuticles with something like CND - Solar Oil Nail & Cuticle Treatment will help promote healthy growth of your nails, and help to moisturize your skin around your nails. It can immediately improve the look of your nails or manicure and will give longterm results!

just 3 tools for the perfect manicure at home!
I’ve been perfecting my manicure routine during the last few months, and here’s my simple steps: 1. I always start by washing my hands. I’ve learned it’s easier to clean up my nails and cuticles when they’re a bit softer. 2. using a metal cuticle pusher, I gently push the overgrown skin back. I got my metal kit from tjmaxx but I can’t find it online anymore! if you visit your local store I’m sure you can find something similar for a great price. 3. very carefully, trim the excess skin. this SHOULD NOT HURT, nor should you bleed. so be careful! 4. if you need nail shaping, use a nail file. my nail salon always gave me the one they used on me to take home, so I have a few like this one. but if you need one, sally’s beauty has a great selection of them! 5. then, you polish! I love this one by ella + mia, and this color is soooo pretty for summer. if you want an extra glow, OPI - OPI Top Coat is a great choice. 6. some secret tips I love—I follow my manicure up with some rose hip oil BEAUTYBIO - The Radiance Brightening Vitamin E + Rosehip Seed Facial Oil right on my cuticles and rub it in gently. this really makes my nails look and feel professionally done. also, using a hand cream leaves my hands as silky soft and perfect as my nails! lastly, I like doing my nails in front of a fan. it makes the polish dry as I’m going and makes the job a lot quicker! doing your nails at home is really easy and fun! it’s a lot simpler than it seems. you can have gorgeous nails at home!

Nontoxic Nail Polishes at Every Price💅🏻 Avoid 3 risky ingredients!
It is important to avoid the ingredients which are linked to certain health problems (asthma, allergies, reproductive system disorder, cancer, etc.). The good news is that there are more and more non-toxic nail products available: 3-free, 5-free or, better yet, 8,9 and 10-free nail polishes which are free of all harmful ingredients. Here are some suggestions and tips for you! My Beloved Non-toxic brands Olive & June Nail Polish - $8 10 Free Chemistry Clean Nail Color - $18 Ella + Mila Elite Nail Polish -$11 Pacifica 7 Free Nail Color - $9 Static Nails - $16 I also recommend the nail polish colors which I'm obsessed with recently! My favorite one is the liquid glass nail polish from Static: bohemian blue. This liquid glass nail poloish is formulated with a breakthrough formula loaded with rich pigments and natural antioxidants for a healthy manicure. So long lasting and beautiful! just like they were done professionally. Risky ingredients you should avoid Toluene It is one of the most widely used products in the composition of so-called "classic" nail polishes. It is a solvent widely used in industry. It dissolves resins, oils, or fats. In the case of nail polish, it makes them easier to apply ... and it is he who is responsible for their characteristic smell! Basically, toluene, in addition to causing allergies, it's coconut. Formaldehydes These are hardening compounds which in particular allow the varnish to dry quickly. But since 2004, they have been classified among carcinogenic products by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.  Dibutyl phthalate Normally, you should never come across this component on the back of your nail polish bottle. Listed as an endocrine disruptor, it is strictly prohibited in the European Union. But the substance is sometimes found in polishes bought outside Europe. If you like me who can't live without nail polish but want to say stop poisoning, are you ready to try a cleaner nail polish? 💅

Battle of the natural nail polish
Battle of the natural nail polish
This week I tried 2 different natural nail polishes. Both ella+mila - Love Collection Nail Polish and OLIVE&JUNE - SE are 7 free. I did need 3 coats of each to get my desired color but they looked great... until Ella+Mila chipped 2 days into my mani. That combined with the easier applicator of Olive&June made me prefer O&J more. The color is great and they have tons of options at Target and on the website. I can’t wait to try another Olive&June color!
