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.

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!! Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you! I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit. Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this! I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed. Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time! The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are! Thi

Canada Day - Saran Wrap Style

I had said the other day that I would be using the Saran Wrap method again soon.. And I really did mean soon. I figure it was the perfect way to celebrate Canada Day (nail-wise) without over-doing it.. I mean, I'm fairly patriotic as a rule, but sometimes sporting a Maple Leaf on my fingers isn't exactly my style.. ANYways.. See? The love is there with the red and white.. I know I said the next time I did the saran wrap method, I was going to try with three colours.. But, I think I will maybe leave that experiment for tomorrow - today is only about these two colours! So.. How I get to this? Well, allow me to show you. Start off with the colours of your choice - one as the base, and one as your.. distress-er? And some saran/cling wrap. I take two pieces and ball them up.. You could use more or less.. But I figure two hands, two, er, balls. Yikes. After your base has COMPLETELY DRIED (you can do these a couple of hours in advance, the night before, or even use some

Dry Marble Technique

Hey everyone! Yes.. Dry marble technique.. well.. technically I am water marbling, but allowing the polish to "dry" on the water.. then using it as a nail decal. Does that sound confusing? It might. But. I think this will be my next video. It is actually a lot of fun to do. And while I think this first attempt is grand, it could be better. I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat Sally Hansen Bubblegum Pink Sally Hansen  Babe Blue Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow Water Dotting Tool Bowl Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat I will probably film a video for this within the next week - so I will post up that gem soon. Or, there are probably a wealth online for you to look up in the mean time. Super fun technique without all the hassle of legit water marbling. See you all again soon!
