My Norwegian "Mommicure"

I know the title is a bit...odd. But there is logic (my version anyways) behind it. I swear.

As a woman, it's my birth given right to love the indulgences of a good manicure. As a busy SAHM, it's my job to make due with what I've got (be it time or supplies). Luckily for me (& my "no longer naked nails"), I finally found what products work best for me. OK, maybe being a BzzAgent had something to do with it, but regardless, here's my "How To".

Step 1: Generally a good soaking of the hands in warm water is suggested. I don't know about you, but my kids will not allow this. So I double up & do some dishes to knock that step out. That right there should sum up the "Mommicure".

Step 2: A quick stroke of the brush with some Cuticle Care.

Step 3: Aha! There's the Norwegian part! And the BzzAgent part too actually. Neutrogena's Norwegian Formula Hand Cream is amazing to lock in moisture whether it's for a manicure ("mommicure") or dry winter hands. (Actually it's been my saving grace on the latter.) You only need a small amount of this long lasting, glycerin-rich cream for a good cover. (Those Norwegians are thorough I tell you.)

Step 4: Coat of polish. I just happened to be in the mood for some Essie polish in "Miss Fancy Pants". The fact that it dries fast might have something to do with it too.

Step 5: Second coat of polish.

Step 6: Finish it all of with a top coat.

And there you have it folks! Who would've thought a Norwegian Mommicure was so simple? 

Available in Scented & Fragrance Free
