Sassy Pants Polish New England Christmas & Nail Care

Press Sample My next Polish Pickup post has 3 products in it. It has a gorgeous polish, cuticle balm and a lotion bar! Here are Sassy Pants Polish’s offerings for the December Polish Pickup! As always,  we’re going to go through my spiel on Polish Pickup for those not familiar with it! Before I get into this lovely shade shown above, we’re going to talk about this new Facebook group and I’m going to describe it’s concept. The group is Polish Pickup. Polish Pickup offers a fun, interactive experience that allows you to submit theme ideas, vote for your favorite theme, and selectively purchase your favorite polishes every month. It’s NOT a box though. I think when it formed that was the major misconception of it. Now, I love polish boxes, however, some purchasers shared their frustration in only wanting 1 or 2 polishes from a box and needing to unload the polishes…

Essie Treat Love & Color New Shades

Press Sample Tons of new Essie landed on my desk recently, but seeing Essie Treat Love & Color in new shades  got me really excited! Before this set of 4, there were only 3 shades created – so this bumps it on up to 7. They kept with the “office safe” styled shades but the new ones offer a bit more opacity than the previous. What is the Essie Treat Love & Color line? It’s an advanced 1-step nail care + color range with 60% less peeling and 30% less breakage in just one week to your nails. No base or top coat required. The initial 3 shades that debuted (you can check them out HERE) were sheer and had a touch of shimmer. Perfect for brightening the appearance of your nails while giving a nice wash of color. The 4 new shades that have been released are more opaque and…

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…
