Do you love your hair?
That is the question I want you to answer. Do you embrace your hair for its texture, its color, its length, its style? All too often, I think it is easy to complain about our hair. I’m guilty of it as well – my fine/thin locks don’t like to hold a curl, and styling isn’t quite as “fun” as it could be if I happened to have some curl or volume. But, oh, how having a “good hair day” can transform my confidence level! Yes, the weather can play a part in that, but the products that I use with my hair also contribute.
ULTA Beauty’s Love Your Hair event is a 21-day celebration of hair, from May 12 through June 1 at ULTA Beauty. If you visit your local store, you can get involved with hair demos, prizes, and daily Beauty Steals™ – special offers on hair care products and tools. Some of these awesome events include free Redken Diamond Oil 5 Carat Finish with an appointment on 5/22 or 5/23, and Your Best Waves and Curls with Bed Head and Hot Tools on 5/14 from 4-8pm.
Now, I know I talk a lot about finding affordable style, but there are also times when splurging a bit is absolutely worth it. I wholeheartedly believe that is the case with your hair. Taking care of your locks with the proper products can not only make your hair look great, but can extend the time you need between salon visits. So, spending a little more money on your at-home hair care can actually save you money in the long run! Plus, having a good hair day every day isn’t such an awful thought, is it?
I woke up bright and early on Saturday morning to attend quite a spectacular event. Nordstrom was throwing their spring/summer beauty trend show, and I was fortunate enough to be in attendance. My lovely friend Megan and I decided to forgo sleeping in on a Saturday to learn about the best in beauty.
Nordstrom really rolls out the red carpet (or should I say: white) for this event. Ladies milled in the Nordstrom entryway before the main doors opened: filling their tote bags with samples and learning about new products and techniques. When the time came to be led up to the Trend Show main event, we were paraded through the store, which had been transformed into a beauty mecca.
It’s time for some metallics on the blog this Monday!
Some of the default nail hues I love to paint on are silvers, golds, and other metallics. There is something fun and bold yet still subdued about them!
I think Trixie by Zoya is on the bold end of the spectrum. I am really really digging it! Trixie is a light silver in color, but the metallic quality of it is almost foil-like. It’s chic, but still has edge, depending on how you wear it! I like the eye catching nature of the color, without being too over the top!
Happy Friday everyone!
It’s been a little while since I added a new nail polish to my collection. However, when Zoya recently ran a promotion (three free polishes…just pay shipping!) I could not pass it up. One of the three polish colors I selected was Cassi:
Cassi is a really pretty peachy pink nail polish. It has coral tones included as well, which is oh so gorgeous! I have a lot of different pink polishes in my collection, but Cassi is unlike all of the others. I know it will be a regular in my manicure rotation now!
I’ve become a really big fan of Zoya nail polishes for the past year or so. They are formaldehyde free and vegan friendly, which is awesome. And what is even better? The quality. The polish itself is thin in texture, so it spreads over your nail like a breeze! It is also extremely long lasting. Check this out: the pictures above were taken last week Tuesday. Today is day TEN of this manicure…and let me share a picture of my nails from right this minute:
Yes, you can see where the nail is growing out, but do you see any chips? No siree. I used a base coat polish followed by two coats of Cassi, and this manicure has literally stood the test of time. This polish is worth every penny, my friends.
So, if you don’t already have some Zoya nail polish in your collection, I definitely suggest you consider it!
Do you own any Zoya nail polishes? What is your favorite color?
