Day 15 - Delicate Print & Spontaneous Burt's Bees Review

I'm not sure if the pattern I stamped is considered delicate or not. I like it so I'm going to use it. =) I wanted to stamp with a gold polish for this mani but didn't have one yet. I was worried that it would be hard to find a gold that is good for stamping. I purchased the thickest one I could find (China Glaze - Passion) and it worked out really well!

I filed my nails down a little. I want to keep growing them out and eventually file them into a square tip. I've only rounded my nails so it should be interesting if I can get the look I'm going for. I will be watching Youtube videos to learn how to file your nails into different shapes before I attempt anything. =)

Here are the pictures for today's challenge:

Do my cuticles look happier to you today? They feel happier. After this manicure I put on Burt's Bees - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream (picture from Google Images). I've only used it once and I don't know if it's supposed to go on after you've finished a manicure. It may work best if you put it on before painting your nails. Does anyone know? I put it on before I took my pictures because I was sooooo dry. I've noticed a lot of nail bloggers use this so I picked it up at Ulta today. Just in one use I've noticed a difference. It isn't overly greasy. My skin absorbed it well, and my fingers felt really soft. It has a nice soft scent that doesn't overpower which is a huge plus for me. It's really small, it fits in the palm of my hand and holds .6 oz. of product. I think it will last a long time because a little went a long way. I'm going to keep putting it on throughout the day because my skin gets really dry in the winter and the acetone doesn't help. ;) I'll let you know how it works out for me over time. 

Has anyone used this product? Do you love it? I wasn't planning on going on and on about this but I really like it. This is probably going to be something I will always need around to keep my cuticles happy. =) 

I hope you liked today's manicure and unplanned review. Thanks for reading!
