My beauty mantra: do less.
You already know I love a good ‘no-makeup makeup‘ routine, and my latest favorite thing is a clean and natural manicure. When my salon started stocking Zoya’s Naked Manicure kits, I had to get my hands on one (ha, pun).
For the cost of a professional manicure, this perfecting kit has everything you need to get lots of your-nails-but-better DIY manis at home. It treats, corrects, and protects in five minutes, and leaves your nails with a satin buff finish that lasts. Over time and repeated use, the system improves nails’ strength, condition and flexibility; it’s especially great if you’ve damaged your nails with acrylics or gel manicures.
And like all Zoya’s nail products, all the polishes in the kit are toxin-free.
To keep my hands and cuticles in shape — they take a beating at the flower shop — I keep this all-natural Shea Moisture hand and body scrub by the bathroom sink and give my paws a good scrub when I get home from work each day. I also keep hand lotion everywhere (from my handbag to my desk drawer and nightstand) and try to remember to apply it throughout the day. I love anything from FarmHouse Fresh, The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector, and Goe Oil.
