What up Nail Lovers!  I know I’ve been missing in action when it comes to my Mani posts, but it was with good reason.  I had a teeny tiny relapse with my nail-biting and I’ve been nursing my babies back to optimal health. It wasn’t all bad though.  While I was recovering, I did find the perfect nail system to help me deal with any future setbacks. But first let me give you the story.

A few months ago, my mom and I went to The Southern Women’s Show in Birmingham, AL.  While there we ran into a man selling these little nail systems for like $35. Basically it was a 4 way buffer system with this Awesome crystal nail file.  He filed and buffed our nails to a glorious shine but there was no way either of us was gonna pay $35 for a friggin’ nail file 😀

Anyway, I searched and searched to find a nail file like his and only came up with a sad reproduction from Sally’s Beauty Supply. Then…one night my mom was watching HSN (as usual) and she spotted the infamous nail file. She ended up ordering 2 sets of a nail system from a company called Ruby Crystal.  It had the same exact file that I was looking for but even better!  Their set comes with a cuticle oil pen, calcium roll on nail treatment, a 3 file system, whitening pencil, Ruby Crystal File and Instructions all in a cute little patent leather wallet.  Not only is the set cute, but it also worked miracles for my poor little damaged nails and cuticles.

Aspen is a muted teal, highly pigmented with an almost candy coated finish.  The formula is thick enough so that 2 coats is all you’ll ever need.  The top layer is Clearly Spotted which is a clear base with black & white polka dots (of various sizes) suspended in it.  One coat of this is enough to add a “Pop” of fab to your favorite polish.  It would go great over pastels, candy colors, a clear base or even neutral tones.  In fact, I was going to pair it with a gray base, but opted for a bolder color this time.
