Nail Rescue! The non-manicure!

Spring is upon us.  That means we're back to yardwork, digging, and trimming.  My Grandma is a gardener and her hands are always handling dirt (and other items I shudder to imagine) so her nails are often chipped, cracked and discolored.  I found the perfect solution and she loves it!  Even if you're not someone who digs in the dirt, you may have other demands on your hands that make it hard for your manicure to survive.   Zoya Naked Manicure was the Editor's Favorite in the August, 2015 issue of Allure magazine.  "These polishes do for your nails what a great BB cream and highlighter do for your skin.  The beige evens nails, the sheer white brightens tips, and together they look like you're wearing nothing at all."  I totally agree.  There are four perfectors; lavender, pink, nude and mauve.  You use them alone or together to get a perfect color and tone that matches your nail bed.  I've included some info below on this and I can totally recommend it!

Pressed Powder Foundation- Matte finish, medium-full coverage.
A powder is the least hydrating foundation and is great for oily skin. It also photographs nicely. Can cause your skin to look flat.
