Last night I gave myself a good manicure . . . the way Feme Makinson of the Luzier Cosmetic Salon, instructed me to do. Now have four coats of polish and I must say the "Sparkling Burgundy" shade of nail polish is a beauteous shade. The "Clear" shade really puts the finishing touch to it. My nails look like jewels. The final touch to the method is the use of Luzier's Hand Balm. I love the dispenser ... it makes it so easy to apply. Must get started with my "Bawth," as we were taught to say in school.
