I'm always looking for a great hand cream. One which won't be too oily, or too thick. The Essie many many mani hand lotion is a very good option, light but still moisturizing. It has a nice smell (made of coriander oil and glycerin) and has a light texture.
Essie is a brand I cherish and I know I can go to their products for a good manicure time. I use the All in one base nail polish which makes a good job strengthening and protecting the nails.
To take care of the nails I use this Nail Therapy treatment found at Urban Outfitters. Inside the package there is a little mask for each one of your fingers. This multivitamin nail treatment is from the very cool Korean brand Kocostar, I love their products, so fun to use and effective.
For a classic perfect manicure the Ballet Slippers shade from Essie is the nail polish you want. The famous pale sheer pink is an ideal color for any occasion.
