Hi Beautiful People!
This posting is dedicated to the throwback of the great animal kingdom that we love to pamper and make gorgeous: our nails. Unfortunately, I am a consummate nail biter so my fingertips can often be a source of embarrassment for me. I have gone through several periods of obsessively growing out my nails (both successful and disastrous). Like the time I grew out my nails for the best friend’s wedding only to bite them off during a final two days before the big event. In desperation I had acrylic nails put on (at a WalMart in Kansas no less); it was a rash and unelegant decision that I quickly regretted when my two inch claws ripped two sets of pantyhose is a row. But I digress.
The product I am recommending today is a tried and true cuticle cream that I have been using forever. Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme ($5.99 @ Target; also available in most drugstores) is part of my daily regiment to stave off dry and cracked cuticles. I try to apply this cream at least once a day, sometimes more. It has a sweet scent that is quite subtle. More importantly, it absorbs very quickly into the nail and surrounding cuticle without feeling greasy. The product comes in a charming round tin that seems to last for years. I love this product so much I purchased it for my mother at one point and so I would recommend it for everyone.
