How to make Manicure/Nail Polish Last Longer

Hi Loves! Welcome to another blog post of mine this week.
From my analytics, I noticed you like beauty posts... Today, I'll be teaching you a technique I sue in keeping my nail polish on for a longer period of time without chipping.

Whenever the Spirit leads, I get a pro manicure. And if I have something serious ahead like a party or a wedding, I'm deffo getting them done professionally. I might do an acrylic fill which is my now defunct signature French Tips.

In the absence of any of the above mentioned reasons, I like to paint my nails myself.
Usually, I decide on the colour, pattern or theme for the week.
File your nails gently if they aren't in shape. Dust off.
If you have tape, cut a long piece into slender/thing pieces and stick them around your nails to avoid the nail polish giving you extra work after painting.
The next step will be to apply a base coating aka nail hardener aka invisible/clear polish. Allow it to dry a little.
Apply your chosen nail polish colour.
Wait a bit for it to dry a bit.
Then, apply another coat of the invisible/clear polish.
Allow it to dry. If you're in a hurry keep your hand s steady and allow them to dry for 12 minutes then, soak your hands in cold water.

That's today's post guys. How do you make your nail polish dry faster?

Thanks for all the love you continue to show here on the blog and on Facebook and Instagram.


By God's grace, I'll see you in my next post this Thursday :)
Your Friend, Alexandra.

GROWING APART| Tips to Help You Fix Your Friendship

Hello Lovelies,
Welcome to today’s post. It rained cats and dogs yesterday so the weather here in Lagos is subtle and cool. What’s the weather like where you live?


Today’s post is not a fashion post per se, it’s more of a lifestyle post. If you follow me on Instagram here (please go and do so now), you may/may not have seen my most recent post; where I gave you babes a heads up on today’s post. Please turn on post notification at the top right corner of my page so that you never miss another post from me, the new algorithm is a mess but there’s hope.

1.Call them: Try to reach out to them. Nothing brings back memories than hearing your friend’s voice. Distance should never be an issue in friendships that mean that world to you; unless you see this as an opportunity to cut off ties with that person.

2.Make A Plan To See Them Eye To Eye: You can pick a mutual location you both enjoy, or one you have been longing to visit and meet up there. TIP: You can write out a list of things you’d li…

AN HONEST REVIEW OF ASWANI MARKET LAGOS- MY EXPERIENCE

Quote of the Day: Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all other things shall be added unto you.
Hi, dolls! Welcome to today's post. How are you doing? Forgive me for the long time no post here on the blog I've been very busy in the non-virtual world. If you follow me on Instagramyou would have noticed the hiatus there as well. It's been one thing or the other for your girl Lily of Nigeria, but our God is faithful to the pulling down of strongholds.


Aswani is one of the most popular second-hand market (aka bend down select) in Lagos. My curiosity about Aswani market began last year when someone talked about it in a passing small talk. It wasn’t the first time I had heard of the market. I grew up(for a while in FESTAC town) so I knew the market existed, but I had never been there. I made up my mind to go and see for myself. You know your girl is a curious-kitty with a heart that constantly longs for adventures. So, I discussed it with a trusted family m…
