To Be or Not to Be? UNT Peel Off Base Coat

Being a nail blogger your constantly painting your nails at least every 1 to 2 days. Oh, and don't forget the nail challenges, collages, and swatches that you have to do throughout the week. Participating in these kinds of things can be fun, but lets be honest it can be a wear and tare on your nails. Although, acetone does a great job removing most polishes, but over usage can harm your nails. Acetone dehydrates your nails, skin, and cuticles when used on a regular basis. In addition, it can also strip the natural oils from your nails which causes them to become brittle.   Therefore, I wanted to find something that would help reduce my usage of acetone. UNT Peel Off Base Coat is considered to be blogger's favorite peel off base. Also, it is specially designed for easy removal of glitter and dark polishes. When I first started my nail journey I was clueless about a lot of things. For instance, I couldn't tell the difference between a crelly or jelly polish. But one thing I did know, those type of polishes are always loaded with tons of glitter and are extremely hard to get off your nails. After going through about a million bottles of acid tone and cotton balls, I was over it. I saw some of my friends on Instagram raving about this product. So I decided to give it a try. For my first attempt I used "Get Clover Yourself" by Native War Paints. First, I applied one coat of UNT Peel Off Base Coat. Next, I let it dry for about 3 to 5 minutes. Finally, I applied the polish and topped it off with a clear top coat. On the next day, I noticed my polish was falling off my nails. Feeling disappointed, I removed the rest of the polish. Later on that night I decided to give it another try. For my second attempt I used "Paannnk" by In The Name Of Polish. I repeated the same exact steps that I did the first time and of course I got the same results. Feeling frustrated, I threw it to the side. After a few months of abandoning my UNT Peel Off Base, I decided to give it another try. This time around I thought I would try a few things differently. First, I made sure my nails were clean and free from any debris. Second, when applying the peel off base you want to make sure that you coat your nail evenly. I realized if I didn't do this correctly it made the peel off process difficult. Third, let it dry for at least 10 minutes. I found that I wasn't letting it dry completely and as a result, my polish kept falling off. I cannot remember if there was any directions on the box, but I did read in the product description on Amazon that results may vary for different individuals. If you are new to the nail community, I recommend this product as a must have. Or if you were like me and threw your UNT Peel Off Base Coat to the side out of frustration. Pick it up and give it another try. I'm so glad that I did! Yes, I was disappointed in the beginning, but once I made those few adjustments there was no doubt that we were meant to be! Every relationship has it's ups and downs, but some things are just worth fighting for.

JLB Nail Polish Swatches & Review

Hey guys! Today I have my swatches and review of the 4 piece nail lacquer collection set by JLB Cosmetics. I haven't heard of or tried this brand before. While doing research on this company, I found very little information on them. Therefore, I will just get on with the review. I got this polish set from Ross for $5.99. I normally stay away from buying nail polish sets like these because I'm always skeptical of the quality. When I saw how cute these little polish bottles were I thought I would give them a try. I must admit I've never seen nail polish bottles like these before, they remind me of perfume bottles. Although, they are pleasing to the eye the brushes were a little uncomfortable to use. The brush was short and the top of it felt like a door knob. As a result, it was kind of hard to get a good grip on it. But, I've had more difficult times while painting my nails. In addition, these polishes had a slightly strong smell, but after a while it went away. Howeve…

EA Polish Swacthes & Review

Hello everyone! For today's post I'm going to be sharing with you my swatches and review of indie polish brand EA Polish. I've been following EA Polish on Instagram for quite some time. Therefore, when CEO/Founder Ellyse contacted me to do a review for the company, I was very excited! What intrigued me the most about EA Polish is how it came about. After becoming a mother, Ellyse's friends and family started inquiring about her formally fabulous nails. Not only did Ellyse decided to do something about it, she started her own nail polish company. If anyone knows anything about the joys and sometimes woes of motherhood, is me. I'm pretty sure some of you guys can relate. Being a mom can be challenging at times, we have a 1,000 things to do and so little time to get them done. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy being a wife and a mother. However, it can become overwhelming to the point where you began to neglect the simple things in life. For example, getting your hair d…

Nail Therapy? Let's get Personal!

Hey guys! welcome to my blog. I started this blog a year ago along with when I first started Instagram(IG). I was feeling a little overwhelmed with the blog and my IG page, so I decided to just focus on having fun with IG. Its been almost a year later and let me tell you, its been one heck of a ride. I have had so much fun meeting nice people, participating in nail art challenges, and experimenting with new nail art techniques. I never knew there were so many other people out there like me who loves nail polish. Some people may wonder why would any one love nail polish so much. Well, I love nail polish because there's not a size on the bottle, I don't have to squeeze into it, it just goes right on my nail. I wear nail polish because it may be a special occasion or maybe it just makes me feel relaxed after a long day of taking care of my son and cleaning the house. Here is a picture of some nail art that I did on January 14, 2016. My son Malachi had to have surgery on the next …
