DIY Nail Strengthener & Hand Exfoliator

Good night darlings! I'm really sorry I haven't posted in awhile, I've been really busy.
Well, today's DIY projects are really simple. Most of the ingredients are in your kitchen and by most I mean all of them. ;)

Lets get started!!
First the nail strengthener. My grandma taught me this, she said it worked amazing for her.

You will need a potato, a grater and a pair of gloves.

1- Prepare your potato and grater.
2- Find a plate where you have enough space to place your hands. Start grating your potato, all of it.
3- Apply the potato under and on top of your nails, then put the gloves on. Let it stay for 10-15 minutes.
(Pictutorial will be at the bottom)

Second the hand exfoliator. I saw this on www.thebeautydepartment.com(so credit goes to them!)

4 tbs. of Sugar(I used organic sugar), 2 tbs. of olive oil(or any type of oil you want), a lemon, 1/2 tbs. of honey and a pair of gloves.

1- Put your sugar in a small container.
2- Add the oil. Mix gently.
3- Add the lemon and honey.
4- Mix it all. Apply it to your hands, massage them gently and put the gloves on. Let it stay for 5 minutes or more.

I hope these DIY projects work for you ladies! Comment below if you have any opinions!
Thanks for reading! :*

Aztec Design.

Good Night lovely ladies(and gentleman)!
Hope you are all doing fine.
Today's post is about Aztec designs/pattern. I made a really simple one, I used black and purple acrylic paint. For the base I used OPI Mermaid Tears. Also, I did an accent nail with silver glitter.
A simple design like this one can turn a boring, plain manicure into a gorgeous manicure.
