Essie Resort 2014

Happy Friday!

Today I just received my order of the most recent release from Essie, Resort 2014.

At first I was a little uncertain of getting these four, as I have polishes that are very close to matching these. I am glad that I gave in and got them. They are actually different and unique in their own way.

How To Nail Stamp

How To Nail Stamp

I was asked by Nail It! Magazine for a tutorial of nail stamping. I was really excited to do this, I may not be the best, I know a few great ladies, but I am really happy how this turned out.

Best Nail Treatment and Top Coat…for Me

Happy Sunday!

Today I wanted to give you two of my favorites base coat and top coat, or should I say my favorite as for the last couple of months.

I would like to say first that this is my opinion and I have not been paid to write this. Just want to clarify this.

I would start first with what has been a real nail saver! Duri Rejuvacote has been a real jewel, within a couple of days I could see and feel a difference, and the best of all my nails are not peeling anymore! I used everything! Nail Envy by O.P.I. Essie's Grow Stronger, Millionnails, grow faster, some Colombian nail polish, and some other stuff that I can't remember, They were all good, just didn't work for me at all, my nails always kept breaking and more frustrating of all peeling!

Rejuvacote, has been  great, no peeling, and I do not know if its a factor, or I'm seeing things, but my nails don't turn as yellow as before.

Some places will sell this to you for up to USD$15 or as low as USD$6.49. I have managed to have found a place in Brooklyn, NY where they sell it for USD$7. Every time I visit my mother I visit that place for some goodies as well.


Now, last but definitely not least is what has become my go to Top Coat. Jill from Glisten & Glow has the best one! I just recently bought my second bottle and although I have it handy I am dreading the day my first bottle runs out. Exaggerated, I know! I used to use Seche Vite, but as many people have said and I saw it happen first hand it gets thick half way through.

With G&G HK top Coat you can rest assure that it won't get thick, and it would be the same quality as when you first started to use. Once applied, you can be sure it won't take more than ten minutes for you to see and feel your nails dry.

Wait! There is more! If you are into nail art, such as stamping, acrylic paint art, any kind of art, this top coat will not, I repeat, will not smudge your design. I tried many top coats before and they all would mess up my design, each one more than the other but it did happen.

Another thing to mention is that G&G HK Girl Top Coat will not shrink your nail polish and you can apply more than one coat and still would not have to wait crazy minutes for it to dry. And the Shine, oh the shine is insane! Do not wait! And this is cheaper than Seche Vite, only USD$6.95.

Head over to her website 


Have a lovely Sunday and start of the week. After two weeks off, I start work again tomorrow, Yay! Not really… :-)

Thanks for reading

Good afternoon lovelies and Happy New Year!

Hope that your new year's eve and day have been great. Mine was quiet and enjoyed it a lot!

A couple of days ago while out running errands I called my local Ulta and asked if they had the new OPI collection, they said yes and I hurried over there, while paying the cashier was like: "Wait! you just called! What can I say, I was desperate to have these on my hands!
