Seasonal Sparkles

What can you say about this manicure? I had just picked up a nude polish when I was at the grocery store (Revlon Sheer Petal) and so I wanted to do a french tip of some kind. I'm very much into the winter festival spirit lately, so red and green sparkles was the only way to go!

I used Zoya Karina and China Glaze Tree Hugger for the tips, and I added a layer of Girly Bits Magically Delicious across the green tips for that added sparkle. Then I used my detail brush with Sinful Colors All About You and Sally Hansen Celeb City to gold and silver flare.

I know these cuticles are horrible - the combination of Adderall which dries out body tissues and the onset of winter weather seems to mean that no amount of lotion will keep those cuticles from being ragged. I've started using cuticle oil multiple times a day since I did this manicure, so we'll see if I can keep that up for a few weeks and if it will help! I'm not very consistent, though (which could be inferred by the use of Adderall, since it's an ADHD drug!), so fingers crossed that I'll actually remember to KEEP putting oil on these poor dried out phalanges.
