Visitor!
Thanks for the tip girl! I will def keep this in mind. How long did it take you to get you to the finished product? I'm thinking maybe I will try this out this weekend.

Tips are looking bling!!

It honestly took me about 2 hours. However it would have taken less had I started with the steel wool in the begining. Youre going to have to keep up with it everyday. As soon as you drive it, it gets a little dirty again BUT it will just wipe off with no effort. Im going to make it a habbit of everytime I get home in the evening to just do a quick wipe off so they stay looking nice.


Go to Home Depot or Lowe's and just get one pack. Its like $4.00 Take some pics of yours and let me know how it turns out! Wear plastic gloves! Dont ruin those pretty nails.

2 hours isn't toooo bad. The finished product is well worth the time put in.
That's actually a good idea to give it a quick scrub each night to keep it clean. I was thinking going back at it once/week but that might just bring it to how it is right now lol.

Stay tuned on FB! I'm hoping to do this this weekend.
Awww thanks! Yah after seeing how messy it can get I'm def wearing gloves!
Do you have something like this at home? It works like a charm in situ's like these:

Looks good. Kudos for getting down and dirty! I like the attention to detail, the tips are as important as the shafts.

Yah, it takes the gunk stuff off perfectly off your hands but not the nails. I hate it when it gets stuck in between

Yeah its pretty bad. Its about 3 inches long. I saw it and said a couple cuss words lol I have no idea how I did that. I would have heard it or felt it bump my car. Its not on the front, just the rear ... Thank goodness for wheel and tire warranty.

Yah good thing for that! I can only imagine how much it would cost if you didn't have that.
How was your weekend?
Sorry for the influx of FB PM's lol I was sending you messages while on the train through my phone, then when I got home I linked you to the forums from my favorites on my home comp.

Mine was good too! Went to a campsite during the day Saturday and hung out with some friends. Rest of the weekend was R&R.
You're always shopping girl! lol

No problem! I'd like to be of help as much as I can since I went through it all.

Hahaha that is us!
You know what? We should invent that hand cleaning thing for girls who actually work on their cars. Something that actually removes that gunk from our nails!
