Nail care favoritesNail polish remover: 100% Acetone. I purchase 1 liters bottle each time haha.. I know some people say that it isn't good for your nails, and maybe it's bad for many hands and nails, but mine seem to work fine. And I love that I don't have to rub the nails silly when removing glitters, they just goes off like butter. ;) Well, almost.
Cuticle remover: None.
Hand cream: Occasionally Oliva by CCS Eco. Not because I think it works per ce, just because I LOVE the scent.
Nourishing polish: If I must I guess I use Mavala 2fas.
Base coat: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat.
Top coat: Seche Vite
Oil: Extra Virgin olive oil. I mean, that's awesome for everything. I often use it on my cuticles and then smears the excess over the rest of my hands. Hell, I've even removed makeup with it!
Cuticle cream: I used one from Oliva by CCS Eco, and then the bastards discontinued it before I was able to hoard it.. The smell was even more awesome than in the hand cream, not fat on the skin and nails and went in and repaired my cuticles if they where dry or needed moist. I will probably be an old lady and still complaining and nagging about this certain cuticle cream.
Nail polish favorites – ColorGold: China Glaze - Platinum Gold. I love the antique feel of this gold, not yellow as many gold are.
Silver: China Glaze - Platinum Silver. Feels like wearing aluminum over the nails (in my mind). I like that it is so non-glittering, the shimmer is so small making it look like real metal.
Black: Kleancolor - Black. My favorite black one-coater.
White: Kleancolor - White. My favorite white..however I'm in the end of the bottle and the brush is messing with me. It is a one-coater if applying nail art details or even large areas, also a one-coater if applying a very thick layer, HOWEVER if painting the whole nail it needs two coats. However I'll buy more of them.
The other colors are so hard. I would need a separate post for each color. It's impossible for me to chose from all the blue or the greens etc. Maybe I'll do that if I got time. Little Miss Nail Polish has done something like that and her lists are awesome! :)
Nail polish favorites – FinishOkay, this list is like a big pinch of salt. It's just what came to my mind this very second.
Creme: GAH! Too many of them. But a yellow creme is always a joy to see. Lets go with Kleancolor - Neon Yellow which isn't even a neon in my eyes.
Duochrome/Multichrome: Colorclub - Port-Folio..HM's Lady Luck is a close second.
Flake: Color Club - Snow-Flake. (My only flake polish!)
Foil/Metallic: Hm. Perhaps Kleancolor - Metallic Black
Frost/Pearl: I love to wear french manicures with a base coat with a pearl or iridescent finish. I have many of those polishes. Many enough that I should make a post of it. Here's a post showing Wet n Wild.
Glitter: W7 - Salt n Pepper and Ninja Polish - Humble Bee.
Jelly: Ehm.. I have no favorite yet. That's the quest for 2013!
Holo: Jade – Magia Negra.
Matt/Satin/Suede: HM's matte top coat. I works for all polishes. Ah..I do love matte polish.
Neon: Hm. I like many neons (adore) however I'll pick my favorite nail art I did last year, a neon holo gradient.
Shimmer/Glassfleck: I'll make it simpler for me, a shimmer dotted gradient nail art in dark blue and silver. I liked that one a lot and will do it again soon, but with other polishes for the sake of variation.
As you can see there is some space for tips..I don't feel very gentle with my nails with no regular cuticle oil etc. So please feel free to tell me your favorites. Preferably thoes that I can order from ebay, I got such an urge to purchase stuff on ebay right now..haha ;)
