Contest of the Week – Essie Nail Color Polish

Essie is known for high quality nail polish. This week, we are giving away two bottles – Mademoiselle and Ballet Slippers. To enter to win these great pink shades just comment below with your best nail tip. Here’s ours:
If your nails are brittle then be sure to file them in one direction. Thin or brittle nails don’t do very well with the back and forth motion of filing (which weakens nails further).


One winner will be chosen by 12/28/2011 and notified by email 1/04/2012. U.S. residents only. Odds of winning are 1 out of number of comments on this blog post.

  20. April says:

    Limit use of nail polish remover. Don’t use nail polish remover more than once a week. When you do need to use nail polish remover, choose the acetone-free variety. Acetone dries nails. Don’t Abuse your fingernails. To prevent nail damage (and chipping off polish), don’t use your fingernails as tools to pick, poke or pry things.

  21. Mary says:

    Don’t underestimate the power of a top coat and a base coat. 🙂 Works wonders for at home manicures!

    Keep your cuticles moisturized! Push them back gently after a soaking-a bath or shower will do and never cut them with a scissor.
