Dr. Dana Nail Renewal System

Press Sample Today we’re going to talk about some nail care. I was sent the Dr. Dana Nail Renewal System to try out. This is a 3 step system that was created by Dr. Dana Stern, who is an internationally recognized dermatologist and is one of the only physicians in the country with a specialty in the diagnosis and treatment of nail disorders. I’ve been using the Dr. Dana Nail Renewal System for 3 weeks now to see what I think of it. We’ll go through the simple 3 step process and then talk about my thoughts on it. Before we jump into this, I do want to mention that I have strong, healthy (I think so anyway) nails. I’ve never experienced peeling, weird breakage, or anything of that nature.  I had acrylics for 12-13 years, and when I removed them at home (I don’t recommend that by the way) about…

Truly Supplements Biotin & Collagen Dark Chocolate Supplements

Press Sample I post a lot of photos of nail polish, but I don’t post much about my nail care. While I don’t have a super strict routine, I do try to keep up on their care. They are kind of the “stars of the show” here anyway. While I do go through my filing, oiling, balms, etc to keep my nails looking the best I can, I started incorporating biotin and collagen supplements into my life. Truly Supplements offers a dark chocolate supplement of both, and I’m hooked. Initially I was asked to review all 4 of the supplements that Truly Supplements offers: Biotin, Collagen, Melatonin and Probiotic. I decided to try Biotin because it’s truly the best fit for this blog. They sent Collagen along with it to try as well. Make the “little things” you do each day that improve your well-being a delightful experience and something…

Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat

Press Sample of Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat One last review to pop up for everyone before I go on a week long vacation! Tonight I have the Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat to share with you! The name is a little deceiving as it isn’t the type of gel you have to cure with a lamp, so don’t think that (I did at first so I asked) Pink Gel Coat is a protein-rich nail coating that instantly strengthens, seals, and protects your nails. I tried this out for a week straight to get my thoughts on it! Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat is a keratin-rich formula includes an optical brightener that filters out any yellow appearance, making the nail bed look rosy pink and the tips of nails white.  It also dries fairly fast, which I wasn’t expecting. You can use Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat for both fingers and toes. It…

Mont Bleu Glass Nail Files Review & Giveaway

Press Sample Affiliate Links I’ve been using Mont Bleu Glass Nail Files since October of 2012 when the company first reached out to me and I’ve been hooked ever since. I actually still have and use the original one I received way back then and it still works like new. I’ve since purchased another one to keep (I misplace things a lot) and a mini one to keep in my purse. Every Sunday I have a routine – file my nails with my Mont Bleu Glass File, Mani Bomb, Cuticle Oil and Hand Cream. Mont Bleu reached out to me again recently and asked if they could send me a few more products to feature and I was happy to. I was thrilled when the package arrived and it contained a normal glass nail file, a mini glass file and a toe nail file. I was DOUBLY thrilled when I…
