    Beauty Tip of the Day: Nailene So Natural

    Oh, how I love BATF-reader submitted tips.

    I’ve noticed that before major events, my nails will tend to do something funny, like break or just look bad. My next course of action is to get a manicure, but that can be expensive and time-consuming, especially when I’m on travel. Instead, I carry a box of, that’s right, Nailene So Naturalacrylic nails. These have come a long way in recent years and now look incredibly natural.” – Mona H.
