Perfectly Polished Tips 264 - Catch Up

This time of the year is always busy, my nails get neglected, my stash goes mostly untouched. The sun is rare for photo taking, and I usually acquire way more polish than I could ever possibly keep up with. :) I am considering doing the Advent Calendar Nail Art Challenge that Kristi from Happy Hands Nail Polish made.

I am not great at nail art or challenges but I will try.

Even though I have not been polishing my nails I have been trying to keep them safe from the cooler weather. NC is weird, it hasn't actually been cold here yet. Or well not cold to me, I will take these 63 degree days all winter long. I know using Lansinoh for keeping cuticles nice has been very popular among the nail community. I just got a tube of my own to see what the hype was. It actually works really well and quickly. I had a few rogue cuticles that I had been picking at and after one application of the Lansinoh they were looking a lot better. They had softened up enough for me to forget they were there, so I stopped picking and chewing them. I will definitely be adding this to my nail care routine.

See you soon with my first manicure from the Advent Calendar Nail Challenge!

Also have not hit cool weather yet where I live - I was in shorts last Sunday. We had a lot of rain but on the northern central coast of Cali but seems summer has lasted and lasted. I have noticed the past 2 weeks some dry skin so I need to start my heavier moisture routine. I hydrate my nails and cuticles like crazy all yr to keep them from peeling or getting thin so that part does not change for me. I am in the big old city of LA now doing a get ready for chemo and surgery stuff - a whole world of shopping here that I don't have at home and not feeling up to going out and dealing with the traffic or oomp at all. I broke my glass nail file and went to get a new one at a little beauty supply 2 blocks from here.It's loaded with every shade Essie makes and all the OPIs - I have seen em all before and did not even look or feel tempted...ugh! Guess I will save a ton of $ which is good - I will be needing it to cover my share of the next round of med expenses. Folks here in LA think it's cool now - mid to upper 60s and are running around in boots and sweaters! I am roasting here and in dress and sandals.
