your nails, with Butter London’s Mellow the Yellow nail brightening treatment. I prefer to do 3 coats with a clear quick dry top coat on top. It gives a pretty pink glow while remaining natural. My favorite thing about the product is that it is not just for a look. It is designed to actually help your nails get brighter, healthier, and stronger. I have tried a few polishes before that give a similar pink glow, but none of them provide ingredients to actually improve your nails. This polish has the lemon fruit extract built in, so while you’re beautifying your nails you’re helping them. The line is “10 free”. Which means no there is no formaldehyde and parabens, as well as many other toxins. It is cruelty- free. So mellow out your nails and your self 😉

I’m rolling into this month with a bunch of new finds. First is the Honey Banana sheet mask from TWOTSP. This Korean sheet mask uses Manuka Honey and Bananas to reduce bacterial growth and fight signs of aging. It hydrates, brightens, and balances. 


At night I’m caring for my under eye skin with Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix. It reduces the look of fine lines and leaves skin firmer and more nourished. I love that it’s lightweight yet effective.

I’m caring for my hair with Loreal’s new Everpure Sulfate Free Glossing pH balanced Shampoo and Conditioner. It leaves hair silky and shiny. The line is anti fade and UV filters to be gentle on color treated hair.

I love going over my dry hair with a few drops of Typology’s Repairing Hair Oil with Acai 5% + Hibiscus. It is a lightweight dry oil that controls and softens hair. This is the finishing touch your hair needs.

On to the body, I love Soap and Glory’s Magnificoco Drop In The Lotion Body Lotion. I love the smell and it absorbs quickly.

Lastly I’m using Sally Hansen’s Insta Dri X Peeps Collection in White. It dries so fast and only needs one coat.

Stay tuned for what I get into this April…

but when you’re in a rush and want salon looking nails, use Static Nails. They have the coolest press on nails I’ve seen. I have not tried them yet, but I will be getting the black ones with red underneath for Winter. For the Summer, I have been using their nail Liquid Glass Laquer in Coconut. It is designed to look shiny and strong like gel, and said to last 10+day. They last a solid 6 on me. Most polishes last 3. It is made with Antioxidants, Rosehips, Marula Oil, Balm Mint, and is non toxic (8 free). Coconut is the perfect sheer pink with a hint of white. So fake a salon visit with Static, you know you’re faking other things….

One Night Stand, Damn I Hot, $Maker, are just a few of my favorite polishes from Cheeky Monkey Cosmetics. The line is free of the 9 worst chemicals found in most nail products.

She aspires to be the best ‘her’ she can be.” If that’s you, head over to their website and find your color match.

you should be taking care of yourself. My current go to Nail Polish obsession is Barielle. It is a “7 free” salon quality brand. I have been using their Nail Brightener, and it’s everything I was looking for. It is formulated with anti-oxidizing properties to hydrate & brighten nails. I use it as a base coat when I’m doing dark polish (which usually stains my nails). I love it alone with 2 or 3 coats for a luminescent look. It looks like healthy nails but, just better. This polish drys quick, so no excuses. So get with Barielle Nail Brightener, and lighten up those dirty hands…..;)

Sundays-Salon-image-03

well your nail polish definitely is. That’s why I’ve been using Sundays polish. “Sundays creates the highest quality socially-responsible products. The nail polish collection is 10-free, nontoxic, cruelty-free, and vegan. We spent a whole year perfecting our formula to create one of the simplest and purest on the market that still delivers long-lasting strength and shine.” 10 free means it does not include: dibutyl phthalate, toluene, xylene, ethyl tosylamide, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, parabens, and tert-butyl hydroperoxide. I have been wearing No. 42 and plan on rocking it all fall. So get with Sundays, because the only good thing that’s toxic is from Britney Spears…
