Whew! I’ve been painting nails all day for the upcoming Tokyo Design Festa. I want to get away next weekend, so I figured I’d better make some progress today. My nails are really messy at the moment and I have splotches of polish everywhere. I also have an achy back from being hunched over the table painting.
I did take a fun break for the paraffin spa! I’m pretty bad about applying hand cream enough, so I use this to keep my hands happy. My guy likes it too but won’t admit it. It’s basically a Crockpot that you melt paraffin wax in. When it’s liquefied, dip a couple times, leave on for 10 minutes, and aaah! It feels greasy after the wax is removed but then it soaks right in with no trace of oiliness.
This was $39.99 at Target, but it’s only available on-line as far as I know- very basic, with only an on/off switch, no temperature controls. It came with 3 pounds of wax and some mittens with plastic liners to wear to keep the heat in. I guess 3 pounds of wax will do around 20 or so dips.
It’s probably pretty low on anyone’s list of needs, but it keeps my hands happy when I do it once a week or so.
