As a busy mom who loves the look of fresh nail polish, but has neither the time for regular salon visits nor the time to invest in an at-home mani, I was very excited by the idea of a DIY gel manicure kit. So when Nailene offered me their SensatioNail Invincible Gel Polish Starter Kit to try, I jumped at the opportunity.

I am absolutely obsessed with Nicole by OPI’s Kourt is Red-y For A Pedi– from the Kardashian Kolors collection. I typically gravitate towards edgy shades, but I’ve been seeing a lot of celebs sporting orange-y red manicures and I couldn’t help but hop on the bandwagon. So I reached into the recesses of my nail polish collection and unearthed this gem, which OPI sent me for review last year (better late than never, right?). (more…)

How cool are these nail kits from The New Black? Totally an amazeballs idea, right? In fact, I had a similar beauty brainchild – but they beat me to the proverbial punch. Anyway, these kits are such a fun addition to the nail marketplace. (more…)
