We are now on our second to the last week of the HBC Christmas giveaway!

Each week for 8 weeks, we will be sharing tips and featuring HBC products which you can win just by simply answering the question of the week.

This week topic is something that I'm really interested in... NAIL POLISHES! Yehey! You all know how I love painting my nails, right? You can see my NOTD posts *here.* I've tried a few polishes from HBC and I'm liking them so far. The shades are nice, they're easy to apply, and they're really affordable! Get a chance to win 5 nail polish shades from HBC by answering this week's question :D


Week 7

Tips and toes transformed with colours. A week of pampered nails is coming your way.

Do you know that in ancient Egypt, women used nail colour to signify social order with shades of red at the top? Queen Nefertiti, the wife of King Akhenaton, coloured her fingernails and toenails ruby red; Cleopatra favored crimson. Women of lower rank who coloured their nails were permitted to use only pale colours. (Wikipedia)

Want a perfect mani-pedi experience? Here are 5 tips from HBC:
  1. Remove traces of old polish with a nail polish remover.
  2. Soak nails in warm, soapy water then add a few drops of essential oil like lavender or peppermint.
  3. Clip tips straight across and gently push cuticles back (resist the urge to trim them). Use a sharp nipper to cut hang nails, and lightly lift away dirt under the nail bed using an orange stick.
  4. File nails to leave edges smooth after clipping. Apply lotion and spray nail surfaces with rubbing alcohol to disinfect and prep them for polish. Wipe dry.
  5. Apply your choice of lacquer starting from the base of the nail brushing outwards. Use a cotton swab or a cotton-covered stick dipped in nail polish remover to remove excess polish on the sides. Finish with a coat of clear polish.

Women of today are so lucky to experiment with whatever nail colour they want, so give your nails the love they deserve with subtle to vibrant hues enriched with Vitamins C and E like San San nail polishes. Get a chance to take 5 of these for yourself when you answer this week’s question.

Question of the week: 
What’s your secret to fab-looking nails?

Happy Beautiful Christmas!
