I love to treat myself to a professional manicure but I find it terribly expensive to maintain (especially when your nails grow so fast!), plus I cook and wash dishes on daily basis so it’s not a pretty sight to have your manicured nails chipped and stained with turmeric and chilli powder isn’t it? Well, let’s leave the salon-perfect manicures to the Tai Tais and those who doesn’t spend much time in the kitchen! LOL Anyhow, I found a great solution to salon-quality manicures by doing it myself. Saves the agony of having to make appointments etc whenever I have an event coming along. By the way, I’m now “cruising on the crimson tide” so it’s perfect to indulge and leave a nail colour on for a week! *wink
My pick of the month is Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri nail colour in Espresso. I love its pretty mauve shade which clicks well with most outfits and doesn’t grab too much attention.
Last year I bought a set of professional DIY manicure which costs me RM100++ but it was worth it coz I can have my own manicure at any time I choose.
Once in a while I’ll indulge in a professional pedicure because I can’t seem to bend 180 degrees and scrap on the calluses on my foot! Yeah I’ll leave it to the masters. Anyway, there’s plenty of DIY manicures and pedicures video online for you to choose but this is my pick.
This is my own results! Check it out. 🙂
It’s quite a challenge to colour the other hand to perfection when you do it yourself but practice makes perfect right? 🙂 Have a good weekend folks!
