Visiting La Jolla during our "staycation" this week
Lipstick League Question of the Week
When it comes to nail care, how often do you moisturize your cuticles? Do you prefer balms, creams or oils to get the job done?
G's answer: My holy grail cuticle moisturizer is still Badger Cuticle Care, which I absolutely adore. But I've been testing out CND Solar Oil for an upcoming review and I have to say, I'm enjoying that quite a bit as well. I find that products specifically made for cuticles (vs. regular hand or body lotions) really do work best for me since I use a lot of acetone and need extra, extra moisture in that area.
