The Busy Mums 6 Step Guide to Beautiful, Healthy Nails

The Busy Mums 6 Step Guide to Beautiful, Healthy Nails
Housework has never been a favourite pastime of mine, I admit, least of all for the negative effect it seems to have on my nails. Nails that have been soaking in dishwater tend to be soft and break easily, and I don't seem capable of keeping nail polish on for longer than 20 minutes before it looks chipped and messy.

"Ewww, look how hairy your legs are!!" exclaimed Sally. Really?…

And I haven't really...just the necessities. Sort of. First cab off the rank is…
