My Nail Care Regimen with Color Street

Image
I was so excited to find out about Color Street nail polish strips that I started selling them in July! I've recently settled into what I think is the ideal nail care routine for using Color Street so I thought I would share.

Removal

Color Street comes off with regular nail polish remover, and I remove the strips at night. Mineral Fusion is a brand that is gentler on your nails, but any remover will work.

Cuticle oil / Going Naked

After removing your polish, wash your hands and slather your nails and cuticles with oil before going to bed. File them gently, and push the cuticles back.  “Going naked” allows your nails to breathe but can sometimes make them more vulnerable so it’s best to go naked at night.

Strengthening Basecoat

In the morning, apply a coat of nail strengthener. This helps prevent breakage and can also help your manicure last longer. I use Original Nail Envy nail strengthener by O.P.I., and I allow it to cure for several hours before applying my nail strips. This wait…

A.C.E. Curriculum Review Video

Hi everyone! I never did end up using the Good and the Beautiful Curriculum like I talked about in my previous post. I've been homeschooling for 12 years, and I always go back to the tried and true IFB curricula, A.C.E. and Abeka. Here is my latest YouTube video, which is my most informative review of A.C.E. Curriculum yet!

The Good and the Beautiful Language Arts and Literature Level One

Image
I'm planning on trying The Good and the Beautiful Language Arts curriculum, starting a couple of months from now when my six year old starts doing first grade work. I already had plenty of ink, so I decided to print up the course for "free."

My favorite curriculum for first grade and up is the tried and true A.C.E., but I do occasionally mix things up and try another curriculum for a subject or two. I'm planning to pair The Good and The Beautiful Language Arts with A.C.E. Math and whichever other A.C.E. subject(s) I decide to order. I think this new curriculum will work well with my three-ring binder system since I can just keep a few pages of it at a time in my son's binder along with his A.C.E. PACES.

Like I said, I mainly use PACES, but I like the fact that The Good and the Beautiful curriculum is somewhat advanced since my son is already reading pretty well for his age. Plus I won't have to come up with as much money when it's time to order his PACES.
