Diablos !!

Hi everyone!!

From the very moment that I saw Diablos by Above The Curve Nail Polish , I KNEW I had to make it mine. In their Etsy shop, Diablos is described as "a beautiful dark reddish brown almost mahogany holographic polish."

Diablos is part of their Fallen Angel Collection, but if you want to snag one, you better get there quick because they only have a few of each of the polishes in the Collection left!

This is my first experience with a holo, and my word, I am in LOVE. In the shade, it's a medium to dark reddish brown, but when you get into the sunlight, HOLY WOW. The colors just explode off your nails. My photos definitely do not do this polish justice, but trust me when I tell you that you will not be able to stop staring at your nails. What an absolutely gorgeous polish!! And the application? So smooth, like silk....I was amazed.

Drink in the photos now. If you want to see a better swatch, check out their Etsy shop!

Quick Review - Sally Hansen Bamboo and Green Tea Strengthener

Hi everyone!

So I was just checking out my fingernails today after taking off my most recent mani, and I noticed that they are a bit longer, thicker, and stronger - which really pleases me, due to the fact that the work I do really does a number on my nails, making them weak and brittle and prone to splitting and peeling.
A little over a month ago, I decided to try something new on my nails in an effort to strengthen them and hopefully reduce the amount of splitting and peeling that I was seeing along the sides of my nails.
So, while I was at WalMart one day, I decided to purchase Sally Hansen's "green tea + bamboo strengthener", I think it was around 7 dollars or so.
I have to tell you that I am rather impressed with this - I have been using it as a base coat for, like I said above, a little over a month now, and my nails are noticeably stronger, thicker, healthier and have grown quite a bit since I first started using it. I really like the results that I have seen so far, and I believe I will continue using it as my preferred base coat from now on unless and until I discover something better.
