It's All About the Hands

When it comes to matters of the hands, specifically taking care of my hands, I'm no expert. I know what I like and why I like it, and that's about it. I've always loved doing my nails, although when I was younger I was pretty sloppy about it. I would let my nail polish chip away, loving the strange shapes left over. But after my crush called me out for my messy nails (I KNOW!), I definitely became more self conscious about it. Recently, I've been really into taking care of my hands and my nails for a few reasons. The first is that I fell in love with Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve, which is the best hand cream I've ever used. It's thick but not greasy, gives you major moisture with only minor slippage. I can put it on in the morning and not reapply for the rest of the day if I'm not washing my hands a lot. The second reason is that I love Yana Sheptovetskaya (@gelcream) and the articles she does for Into the Gloss all about nail polishes and nail care. She's also responsible for my third reason for loving all things hands right now, and that's J. Hannah nail polishes. They're like the It Girl of nail polishes and really easy to apply. Ever since I started using them, I sometimes hold up my hands in the air to admire how beautiful they are. And when I'm ready to try a new colour, I just dip my fingers into Sally Hansen's Kwik Off. It's a sponge soaked in gentle nail polish remover and gets rid of nail polish in less than five minutes. When everything is quick and easy, messy nails aren't even an option.
