NOTW: Glitter, gelly sandwich! #babydanger #nailsfornenix

Friday night in, watching documentaries on Netflix & doing my nails. Playing around with my Gel Haute Polish kit (review soon!) and used a few of my regular polishes with the gel base and top coat. I like changing my polish after a week, but maybe I'll try to keep this combination on for a bit longer.

Base: 1 coat Gel Haute Polish Gel Base

Color: 2 coats OPI My Private Jet, Zoya Nova

Top Coat: 2 coats Gel Haute Polish Top Coat

I'll be doing purple nails for awhile. A small reminder of the big fight against leukemia by a girl named Phoenix. A few weeks ago, she physically left this world and one of her requests was that people paint their nails purple. While I did not know her personally, her life will leave a lasting impression on my heart. For you baby girl...

HG: Body Lotion - Aveeno Active Naturals Daily Moisturizing Lotion

While I haven't totally given up my perfumed lotions, I needed something better for my skin that held in moisture. I have noticed patches of eczema on my arms lately and using scented items has a tendency to make those areas irritated. I have found my current holy grail body lotion - Aveeno Active Naturals! The 2 pack at Costco for $16 is a plus too. My skin retains a nice, supple feel and the patches of eczema have calmed down. Another plus to his lotion is that it is paraben free! Definitely trying to make a more conscious effort to buying healthier skin care products that are budget friendly.

Test Run - Goal: Longer Nails!

Trying this duo in attempt to grow some longer tips!

I have weak nails that peel. I usually just keep them super short, but have been wanting them longer. I'll give this a shot for a month and report back my findings. *crosses gingers*
