Biting blues

Hello everyone! I sincerely apologize for my long absence. I started this blog with the intention of sharing my knowledge and love for cosmetics with whom ever would have me, but the end of 2010 was very difficult for me. My grandfather passed away in October and I lost track of things for a few months, but I am back and stronger than ever! So, I know it's a little late for New Years' resolutions, but better late than never! My resolutions are to continue blogging and finally stop biting my nails! I know, it's disturbing that a 22 year-old could possibly have this absurd and disgusting habit. I find it funny that while my friends are concentrating on kicking their smoking habits, I am working on quitting the life long, childish vice of having my fingers in my mouth. 

The thing that has really helped me stop the biting is keeping my nails short, filed and painted. There was no way I was going to the nail salon with the nubs I had. So, I decided to pull off a little "do it yourself". I bought a cheap nail kit at CVS and started my journey! Since I knew my nails were too short for any drastic colors, I started with OPI just tea-sing. I love this color because it is light enough for shorter nails, but is still noticeable. If you like bright colors or are just looking for a polish change for spring, check out the Sephora by OPI GLEE Collection!

In an attempt to heal my cuticles I bought some Vaseline healthy hands and nails lotion. It is designed specifically for hands and nails. It soaks into your skin quickly and lasts all day. It even strengthens your nails so they can grow long, healthy, and beautiful! It keeps me from biting because let's face it, who wants lotion in their mouth? I bought a small tube to keep in my purse for easy use throughout the day. Great buy!

>>Tip: If you're like me and always seem to smudge your freshly painted nails, paint one hand first and let it dry before painting the other. This gives you a free hand for the inconvenient random itchiness everyone seems to get when they are unable to scratch! 

Thanks for reading!
