- strip your hands of their moisture leaving them dry, cracked and possibly irritated;
- leave a "silicone glove" on your hands which builds up over time. This so-called silicone glove will not allow the penetration of any nail care products you may be using.

Peach & Cream by Essence
Brand new - Essence Nude Glam Series with Peach & Cream featured here today.
This shade is very attractive and innocent looking. I can imagine it as polish shade for weddings perhaps. However, as you can see for the few photos I post here, it's not a shade that is flattering for my skin tone.
Credit goes to TIPS Nail Conditioner for the great nails I have. Thanks to daily applications my nails are strong enough and yet flexible enough to withstand gardening, cleaning and all the sports I do.
TIPS Nail Conditioner can be worn with manicures as well. Simply apply it around the skin surrounding your nails and generously on the cuticles.
I made a beginners mistake when applying this polish. The first coat I applied was far too thick. This resulted in a rather uneven first and second coat. Things just didn't get any better during the second application, even though my toes were crossed. Therefore, I'll only leave you with a few shots of this elegant shade and hope for better results next time round.
Always make sure your hands are moisturized. Nothing looks worse than a well-groomed, manicured hand and dry cracked cuticles and/or parched hand skin. I would highly recommend using a hand lotion that does not contain any waxes or silicones. Why? Well, these waxes and silicones found in many hand and body creams/lotions will:
Why would anyone use a lotion with waxes and silicones in it to begin with? They are not natural to our bodies; they are not found in our bodies. These ingredients are simply "fillers" for many personal care items such as: hair conditioners, hand creams, body lotions, facial creams, etc. You get the picture. So be an aware consumer - anything ending with "cone" belongs in the silicone family.
So, keep your hands in tip-top shape at all times.
Thanks for reading this today. I really enjoyed writing for you and please don't be shy to leave a comment.
Have you ever considered what ingredients are actually in your skin lotions?
