art at your fingertips!

most of my nail art is done with acrylic paint instead of regular nail polish and I just use a good base and top coat to protect my nails; usually lasts for a week

Giving the nails a breather this week. Just finished cutting, reshaping and buffing. After removing polish from my nails I like to rub vitamin-E oil on my nails to keep them healthy and smooth. Since I started painting my nails more frequently in the past few months, I did some research and learned that your nails can’t always be painted otherwise they’ll turn an ugly yellow color! So it’s a good idea to let your nails breathe every once in a while and just use a buffer to give them a nice shine. If you keep these tips in mind, you’ll save yourself some trouble and keep your natural nails looking great! 
I decided to shape my nails more square this time to try something new (I usually round the edges, like a squoval).
