Homemade rich nail cream

    Bright and dark shades of nail polish look better on feet in summer, especially if you plan on walking around barefoot or in open sandals.

    Hands down, the BEST hand cream is the Lady Soma Skin and Nail Treatment ,It's great for those who like to change up their nail polish but hate stripped & brittle nails. It keeps my nails firm & in good shape. I swear, my it makes my nails grow faster. The cream itself is relatively lightweight and sinks right in with a lovely fragrance. I'll put it on my hands (and nails) at night, and they stay moisturized through the next day. I also wash my hands A LOT, and this saves them from hard water and winter weather. I'm young, so I can't comment on its anti-aging properties, but I do believe this will keep my hands looking young, too. amazing!
