Revlon Nail Polishes in Multicare Base + Top Coat & 915 Creme Brulee, Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, Equate Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover
I don't often apply nail polish -- I'm a chronic nail biter, have been since I was a kid -- and when I do it usually lasts for a day before the impulse to bite my nails grows too strong and I have to take them off. Or maybe the nail polish chips and then I have to remove it. I'm just a bit obsessive like that. Anyway, I thought I'd try again with this lovely rose gold color from Revlon. As I mentioned before, my Target had a sale on some Revlon products and I picked this nail lovely rose gold colored nail polish then. I also have this Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream on hand to try & soften up my cuticles. I don't really take care of my nails too often, I have to admit, but like I said I want to try and change these bad habits that I have.
I'm also sure to have nail polish remover at hand and this Equate Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover is similar to the Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover that I've heard some UK bloggers rave about. Basically inside it's filled with a sponge soaked in nail polish remover -- and there are little holes where you can stick your finger in. Just give it a few twists and ta-da, your nail is clean. It was fairly cheap at Walmart too -- about $2 I think -- and more convenient than some cotton balls & nail polish remover. I'm absolutely awful at applying nail polish that I have to always have so remover on hand to fix any mistakes, and I just like how convenient something like this is.
