Things I don’t give a fugg about:
Wearing white after Labor Day, Nickelback and abiding by seasonally appropriate nail color rules.
First things first– nobody can go through life with a raggity set of cuticles, but when the weather starts to get a little nippy, my cuticles go wild! Peace Keeper Nail Renewal Oil keeps my troublesome cuticles out of harms way with a swipe ( or two) each day. I keep some on my bedside, AND some on my desk. And when it comes to the nail itself, I keep them smooth & shapely with tools every couple of weeks, or depending on the barrage of manual labor inflicted upon me, more often.Â CND carries my fav up-keep and manicure prep products, by far! They’re used by pros, and make it easy to at-home beautify the fingers.Â Keep nails squared & short enough to manage with the CND line of files.Â The Glossing Buffer & Kanga Buffer creates a smooth shine that could literally double as a naked nailed clear coat!Â I like these to get rid of any ridges that come in, as well. My ultimate fav is theÂ Girlfriend Buffer, an extra-thick, three-way buffer designed to bring a natural, healthy shine to natural nails and nail enhancements for glowing nails. All of these products fit perfectly into any purse for on-the-go beauty.Â You can find them at most professional beauty supply stores.
Now that you’re prepped for polish, milk the last minutes of summer nail fun with Kitson! But please, keep neons in mind for toes this Fall. They’re a pleasant and fun surprise under those closed toe pumps!
Kitson, one of LA’s hottest paparazzi spots, has fans of their boutique & their nail line alike. Nicole Richie? Ashley Tisdale? We’re sold. Check these out, in addition to the Kitson nail line ofÂ Fall friendly Matte polishes, at shopkitson.com
And for a more ‘ suitable ‘ and traditional transition into fall, we suggest grey, navy & deep purple to give your nails a dramatic & deep color spill.Â These are appropriate for fingers & toes for Fall.
