Tips and Tools for a Clean, Fresh and Beautiful Manicure!

Here's a few tips that has helped me get picture ready Nails and a Manicure that lasts for days.

※ A Cuticlepusher to gently push back your cuticles with. Best done after shower/bath/hand soak so that the skin is soft. (Have you tried rubbing them with sugar or a clean tootbrush?)
I like the stainless steel one. Easy to clean and keep clean!

※ Cottonpads to whipe your nails with acetone, nail polish remover or spirit prior to painting them. Makes your Manicure last longer. An other tip is to add Top Coat at least every other day.

※ An Orangewood stick can be used to whipe away polish from the cuticles and the sides of your nails and fingers. (To remove nail polish from the Orangewood stick I use a nail file and sand it down).
A cottonbud/cottonswab can also be used for clean up.

※ A small flat Brush dipped in Acetone/Nail Polish Remover is really helpfull to clean any polish residue you still have around your nails, that you did not get with the orangewood stick or cotton bud, to really get that crisp and clean finish.
(I started out with an artist brush for painting. Still use it for glitters and holographic polishes).

※ Use Cuticle cream or oil to nourish and moisturize your cuticles with. One of the reasons I like Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream is because it smells Lemony Fresh. Don't forget handcream!

That's a few steps to get you started!

Barbie Look Book #9

Handmade Items for Barbie Dolls

Barbie is wearing a strappless top with a cotton lace at the waist. Over it she wears a green cardigan made out of my old cardigan. The wide skirt is sewn from a soft cotton fabric from Tilda, with a large floral print on it. I made the clutch out of teal coloured Fish Leather. 

The necklace I made out of teal coloured seed beads and drop beads. To match it all up I painted her pink shoes into a nice teal colour with a black sole. I just love how they turned out. And I eally like how this look pulls togeather different shades of green. Love it!

To finish the look I tied a forrest green cotton lace ribbon to her hair and put on a pair of teal colored eyewear that I changed the color of myself. They used to be pink. Se pic below.
