5 Nail Problems and 5 Easy Solutions

Hi everybody!  So good to be back!

Since we are a business that offers quality nail polish, many people ask me questions about nail care.  So, I’m happy to share with you 5 nail issues and the easy answers to have the best manicure.



1. Problem: Your cuticles and hands are dry and cracked all the time. What can you do to help this?

Solution: Moisturize, moisturize and moisturize.  I personally apply natural products from Koche and Shea Butter to my hands, and especially my cuticles every night.  I find that raw, unbleached and organic types of  Shea Butter works the best.  It has many benefits for skin conditions, such as eczema, sunburn and dry skin.

  1. Problem: When you polish your nails, you see air bubbles on the nail.

Solution: Some people shake the bottle before use, which cause air bubbles in the bottle.  Instead, roll the bottle in between your palms, back and forth to prevent this problem.

  1. Problem: Your nail polish cap is stuck to the bottle. How can you open it?

Solution: Use a rubber band and wrap it around the cap to get a better grip to enjoy your polish.  I have done this personally and it really works.

  1. Problem: Your nails are splitting and breaking. What could be some of the reasons?

Solution: When filing your nails, only file in one direction. Filing back and forth can cause a jagged and weak nail edge.  Also, it could be a vitamin deficiency.  Talk to your physician.  (just a side note…I’m not a doctor.)

  1. Problem: Your nail polish always chip in 1-2 days. What can help?

Solution: Use a quality base coat, and apply a top coat with each manicure. Also, be sure to swipe the nail tip for added protection.  We offer a great 2 in 1 base coat in our collection that adds super shine to your nails.  I also love Sally Hansen top coat products as well.

So, that’s that!  I hope that were able to take something away from these tips to help your next manicure become healthier and drama free.  That is very important to us at Lenora Nail Colors.

Until next time,

Maryland Business Feature – LaRhonda Leigh Mobile Shoe Boutique – August 2015

LaRhonda Leigh Shoe Mobile Boutique – Women’s  and Men’s shoes

imageWell, here we go again!  Sharing with the world about a local unique business. I haven’t met a female who doesn’t love quality cosmetics, nail polish and especially shoes. Personally, I love colorful flats or wedge heels to spice up my look.

With that in mind, I had the privilege of interviewing Ms. Leigh, Owner of a mobile shoe boutique in Maryland.  Phinesse Demps, a journalist at The Baltimore Times, mentioned her business to me.  She is a very well-spoken professional that comes from a family of entrepreneurs.

The beginning of the business started while she was recovering from a very serious car accident.  One of her cousins was visiting and said, ‘You need to get rid of these shoes, you should open a store.’  From that one statement, she got the ‘spark’ to move on with it.

LaRhonda started with only 3 pairs of shoes in her inventory!  (I laughed in amazment when she said that!)  She sold them out of her trunk, yard sales and to coworkers. Year by year, the business grew and she proudly took the business on the ‘road’ to events up and down the East Coast.

Her inspiration comes from a close knit family and young females that look up to her. Her goals are to continue to care for her parents and encourage young ones to make a true difference in their lives. Also, she would love to open a store front location one day.

If you ever get a chance to meet LaRhonda…you will not leave without a big hug!  And if you purchase a pair of her cool shoes, she guarantees you will ‘WALK AWAY HAPPY!’
