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.

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

That is all for today - see you all again soon!

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).

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…
