Duri Rejuvacote Review

Hey everyone!

This post has been a long time coming, so, better now then, well, later!

Anyways. 

In mid June, my nails were in crisis mode. How they got to that state, I have no idea, I had not really changed anything with, well, anything. Yet my nails were straight from some demonic possession movie. They were splitting, chipping, infected, angry. Basically they were disgusting. 

Late June, I was mentioning it to my coworkers.. and low and behold, not even 2 hours later, I had an e-mail from a rep at Nail Polish Canada asking me if I wanted to review Duri Rejuvacote, and I quote: "Duri Rejuvacote is an award-winning nail growth treatment that's known to heal split, cracked, damaged nails within a few weeks. It helps you get naturally strong, healthy nails and can be applied as a base coat or top coat."

It was almost as if I had some sort of wire on.. these were the exact problems I had just been complaining about. Of course I immediately fired an e-mail back saying I would happily give it a go.

When I got home that evening, I did a little investigating on this product. It had pretty good reviews, and some of the negatives really stuck out to me: it smells terrible and it stings. One review in particular said that it burned until she removed it. I was a little scared. I did a little further investigating and found that it is not 3-free, so that went with why it had a harsh smell, and probably why it might sting as well. I was still excited to give it a go. I mean, worst case scenario: it really burns and I don't use it. 

When it arrived, I was suuuuper jazzed! Time to whip my ridiculously horrendous nails in to shape!



This was them on my first application. I figured to give this an honest go, I would just keep my nails as the snapped off shorties that they were.

AND! To my extreme surprise.. there was no burning. A little bit of a smell, meh, no biggie.. but I had my teeth bared just waiting for a sharp inhale from the excruciating pain that was about to befall my sweet baby digits.. and.. nada. I applied, and turned out the lights. Twas a good time!

Week 2.. I didn't take a photo as there was not too much of a change.. though my nails were just strong. I cannot really capture the strength of my nails in a photograph - sorry - but believe me, they were feeling great!


  
Week three.. some sweet growth, extra strong nails, annnd extremely dry cuticles! Now, I am someone that regularly has super dry cuticles, but this was probably 10x worse. I stopped using cuticle nippers many months ago, but I had to do a little nipping here.. they were lifting around my nail bed and just looked nightmarish. I am not sure if it was due to using this product, or the heat wave we were experiencing. I just rolled with it all because my nails were back to being strong like they have my whole entire life up until this past June.




This is week five/how my nails currently look. My nails grow quite quickly as a general rule, but now they are long and super strong! Strong enough for me to actually get to play with my nail shape. I usually don't mess with it as when I normally do, my nails will be like 'yeah, no, snap' and I restart. I am sort of doing some sort of almond-y shape. I really like it! And I have been sporting it for over a week with no problems. Fantastic if you ask me!

To me, this product is a complete gem! Sure, the not being 3-free thing isn't the best (I read somewhere there is a 3-free version..), but I can get past that as the results have been exactly what I wanted. I just put it on every other time I polish my nails and the strength remains. I could not be happier!

If you happen to be in a similar boat that I was in, please do not hesitate to give this product a whirl! It saved my nails in their moment of weakness!!

Go scope it HERE on the Nail Polish Canada website.. and maybe some other goodies when you're there.. I mean.. it is nail polish, after all.

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..

Black Marble (sort of).

Hey everyone!

-Insert gratuitous reasoning(s) of why I have been away-

Ok, now that that is out of the way, hi!

I just realized I still have a couple post photos stocked up. Sigh. I haven't even uploaded all that is currently living on my camera. The fear is real.

That is for another day. Mayhaps this weekend.

Until then.

I think I said it at some point on my blog, but I feel like 2017 is going to be the year that I constantly do faux marble nails. Note: not watermarbling. I have given in to that failed activity far too many times.

No, I mean the classy kind of marble. You know.

This time, I did it in reverse, because, why not?


 It counts, right?

Ugh. I love it.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).

Party In The Hills

Hey everyone!

Phewwww!

After all the danger, excellence, and excitement from the 31 Day Challenge, I am not going to lie, I am a little burnt out. Top that off with just.. a rough life-patch, well, it just leaves this nail art enthusiast less-than enthused.

I did do a couple of swatch photos for some polish that I had been admiring from afar, so I will share those. And I do have a couple more coming my way. But.

Despite having naked nails at work today, I did paint a full set.. but.. you won't see those for awhile. I am.. working. On something. I mean, I am sure it is guessable, but hey. Act surprised.

A few weeks back, I spotted some swatches of Orly Party In The Hills, and not only is it gorgeous, but it reminds me of this polish that a patient wears - and I always mention it.. and it also reminds me of The Weeknd. I am obsessed. It is a thing. His little sassy neck thing in the video for Starboy - I die.

Anyways.

This.. polish.. is.. amazing!

I slapped on a coat of my favourite…
