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

Sponsored Giveaway Time!!

CLOSED!! WINNER TBA SOON!! I know that this is primarily a nail polish blog – and that is always going to be my main focus – but, we all know that along with nail polish, I am also a huge make-up advocate. It is through these avenues that I was contacted by a company that works alongside Apothica , SkinCare RX & Skinbotanica . They are working with me to bring something awesome to all of you – a gift card giveaway!!! One of the brands that Apothica carries is DuWop .. I personally have tried two different products from this line and loved them! I have tried Lip Venom & Cheek Venom in Sidewinder. I have to say, I was a bit of a skeptic on Lip Venom, but I finally picked it up to test it out – and it really does make your lips more plump!! The tingly feeling that it leaves is kind of fun as well. I am going to snag this little blurb from the Apothica website to share a bit more of the history of DuWop :  “ DuWop Natural, Yet Glamorous Cosmetics Created out of the needs a

Sticks 'n Stones GIVEAWAY!

Good morning everyone! Just wanted to post up a quick announcement about a little giveaway I'm doing.. I am going to tie it in to two things, but technically it will just be one.. I'll explain! I recently hit 400 followers and wanted to have a giveaway to celebrate that - aka celebrate all of you being completely awesome and following my nail polish endeavours! But the things I wanted to include in my giveaway keep being unavailable to me.. Except for Cover Band's Sticks 'n Stones and that is only because when I had ordered my bottle, I ordered a second to giveaway.. ALSO.. I decided to .com my blog. I had talked about it with my dad (he actually talks about how when he googles my name now my blog shows up and how he sees the images some times and that he thinks I'm awesome) and I declared: when I hit 400 followers, I'm going to .com it up! So I did. SO! While I say this is to celebrate both of these marvelous things, I still want to have a more.. substant
