Manicure 101 WeekMonday, May 09, 2011
In case you haven't noticed, I've become a bit more candid about my nail polish obsession over the last few months. I fully admit that I was once a very active member of a nail polish forum (Makeup Alley), and I'm still a semi-active lurker and sometimes poster over there.
The picture above is the closet in my office. See all of those drawers on the left? That was my polish collection a few months ago. It recently spilled over onto the right side of my closet... it might have more than a few hundred colors. Yes, I'm obsessed and am willing to admit it. And I really do need that many colors, I can totally tell apart dark purple #1 from dark purple #5 and of course dark purple #12. So there.
Anyways, I've gotten a lot of questions about how I do my manicures and make my nails look good. I do have a large post that contained my manicure routine, but it's pretty long and things have changed a bit.
So, this week I'll break things down step by step. Posts to watch for:
• Cuticle Care
• Applying Color
• Clean up
And, if people are really nice, I may even make a few videos to show each step of the process!
Edit to add: It really isn't so much of a week any more. I keep finding topics to include and I've spilled over well into next week too. Let me know if there is a topic you'd particularly like covered!
