Guest Post: Feel Even More Gorgeous With a Gorgeous Manicure!


Hello Beautiful readers!

Feel Even More Gorgeous With a Gorgeous Manicure!
By: Jackie Clark

As women, we are lucky to have many different options to play with to make us feel feminine, beautiful and sexy. From picking out girly and stylish outfits to playing with different styles and colors of makeup, there are lots of things that strong and powerful women can do to help us feel good
about ourselves. Even if you have been dealing with mesothelioma or another form of cancer caused by asbestos exposure or anything else, you have the right to feel like a gorgeous and strong woman! When fighting such a tough battle and dealing with treatment, an army of doctors and a scary prognosis, you are a tough woman, and you should feel on top of the world right now.

Manicuring and painting our nails is such an easy and delightfully fun process, that there is no excuse for us to
ignore it! When a woman has ragged or plain fingernails she often feels embarrassed to point at something or show her hands to others, but when painting your nails can be so much fun, what is the point?

There are many exciting and beautiful trends for nails right now. First you should choose what kind of look you would like to go for. The first step to pretty nails is to properly clean them. Make sure to clean beneath your nails and wash your hands thoroughly, and remove any existing nail polish. After your nails are completely dry - you never want to file wet nails, as it will make them more apt to rip and tear - get out
your nail file and shape your nails. Some women prefer a rounded shape, which is classic and pretty, but another trendy look is to file them into a slightly square shape.

After your nails are clean and shaped, as you want them, the fun begins! There are thousands of nail polish shades available on the market, if not more! Bright colors such as hot pinks and reds, or even blues or yellows are incredibly stylish and will catch a lot of attention! If you aren't a fan of brightly colored nail polish, you could always paint your nails a dramatic black or other dark shade, or even plain white.
Traditional colors, such as light pinks are always pretty and girly. There are even decals and crystals available on the market that can easily be applied by yourself or with the help of a friend, and several companies offer a special kind of polish that creates a "crackled" look when painted over your favorite shade of nail polish. Nail polish and other nail accessories are usually quite affordable, which gives you
even more of a chance to play around and experiment to find out what looks you really love!

You will be surprised by just how proud you will be of your new manicure, and of just how beautiful and proud your pretty new hands will make you feel. Even if you are dealing with mesothelioma or another form of cancer, you are a strong woman who should feel beautiful and proud of yourself for fighting such a powerful demon.
