Nails at Work

I’ve never been a nail biter but sometimes I feel I have the hands of an old lady – they get so dry from handling fabrics and dragging luggage around all day.

I am obssessd with looking after my hands, and I’ve been using Solar Oil for my cuticles and for years. For hand creams, I tend to use several products depending on my mood, from Glam Blam and Bliss to Creme de la Mer. I never put hand cream on when I’m working (which is when I need it most) as I’m afraid I’ll get it on the fabrics.

Teresa Smith from Nails at Work painted these nails! I love deep shades of red but I can’t resist dark blues and purples!

I love having manicures: it’s quite a treat for me. Nails at  Work offers mobile manicures so if a group of girls are off to a party you could all get a mini manicure while you’re still at work. Of course it would be even nicer if it was the boss’ treat!

    Let me tell you some tips how to give yourself a manicure. Remove old nail polish thoroughly. Soak hands in warm water for 10 or 15 minutes. Dry hands. File nails in one direction only. Avoid using a seesaw motion. Push back cuticles. Use a cuticle moisturizer if they do not push back easily after soaking. Add a second coat for deeper color. Finish the manicure with a top coat of clear polish.
