In college I met a young lady who truly introduced me to the concept of self-care. Every Sunday she would come hang out in our dorm room, and we would chat and dread our upcoming week ahead. Something that stood out about her was her consistency! She was consistent in whatever she did which included painting her nails in my room. There would never be a Sunday that passed where her nails would go untouched. My roommate and I never really questioned why she did it, but just admired from afar. One particular Sunday afternoon, I decided to question her persistent nature surrounding adorning her nails. Though I don’t remember the full response I imagine the conversation went something like this:

Me: Hey Ericka, why you always doin’ your nails every Sunday? Do they chip fast?

Ericka: Nope. You know I really like doing something for myself. Painting my nails soothes me.

Me: Ohh! That’s cool

Me internally: I gotta try that!


(To learn more about my friend Ericka, visit her blog here!)

Though, I wasn’t as persistent as Ericka, I always try to manage to paint my nails! I do this to make room for myself. Sometimes the only person who knows you need a break is you, so why not do something that is soothing!

My nail polish poison this month is not a brand I usually reach for because it’s more of an up in coming brand. When I first stumbled upon their website while Instagram browsing, I totally fell in love with their concept. Pretty Woman NYC is a 5-free, cruelty free, vegan based company.


What does 5-free mean?

This means that the company’s products are FREE of the 5 nasty toxins you may find in other brands. These toxins include, Toluene, Camphor, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, & DBP.


How could I not be in love with this company? In my previous post, you all should have noticed that I am trying to refrain from unnecessary toxins while I try to live a more holistic lifestyles. These toxins are really hard to avoid in every day products but when given the chance I am sure to take hold of the opportunity to treat my body better. This includes my nails!


Pretty Woman LLC sent me four lovely polishes and a designer nail kit to review. Their polishes choice are categorized by collections, and each collection has a set of polishes that somewhat reflect their names. I encourage you to check out all of their collections as the ones I received were only from two of the many different collections they have to offer. (I am not a professional nail artist so the color application may be a bit messy. But I tried my best to stay "in the lines" lol)

Let's take a look....

Sands N Sunset from the Sand collection


I can truly picture myself wearing this polish during the summer as the name is truly fitting for the season. The polish glided on my nails so smoothly and it gave the perfect amount of texture. Sometimes with polishes they can become too grainy and textured which make them hard to spread, however this wasn’t the case. I used this polish with my Sache Vite base coat and sealed it with the same quick dry coat. It lasted for about a week before it started to chip, which is UNHEARD OF for me and my natural nails. The color payoff was good too for a textured polish. I just loved the orange tone it gave when the light hit it. I was weary about the removal because usually with textured polish, removal becomes a pain, but once again, Pretty woman NYC got the win! Removal was a piece of cake!


Next up…

Coraliscious from the Gelogics collection



I really enjoy using gel polishes because of its lasting effects. I recently did a tutorial on how I use my gel polishes here. Check it out if you haven’t already. What makes Pretty Woman NYS’s gelogic polish so great, is that is cuts out the middle men. There is no UV or primers needed for this polish. Once again the application was really smooth. I did not apply a top or base coat just to see how well the gel adhered to the nail. It did a pretty decent job for a gel polish that only cost 7.99!! I really did get a glassy shine from the polish as it claims so I was a happy camper. The glossy shine is one of the reasons I opt in for Gel polishes over regular polishes. Another great pro to this polish is that the polish can be removed with acetone.



And then there was…


Green Ceramic from the Ceramics collection


I honestly can say that this color is one of my favorite colors. The finish was everything I expected it to be. It wasn’t too matte and wasn’t too shiny. It just gave my nails a nice cute finishing touch. Typically regular polishes are only mediocre in my book but this polish was amazing! It didn’t last a week before chipping, which is expected but I love the smooth texture and the way it applied! A little did go a long way and it was super buildable!


Can't forget...
Teal Alpha Jewel from the Gelogics collection

So I really wanted to love this polish but out of all of theme I liked it the least. Not because of the color, because the color was gorgeous, it was due to the application. The application was such a struggle. The polish was very clumpy and hard to spread. But once the polish was on it did smooth out and dry fairly quickly. This greenish micro alpha jeweled polish gives a nice glowing/shimmer effect when it is in various types of light.

Grand finale….


Matte Nude nails with blue black and white geometrics from the designer nail collection



I wore these nails for my birthday in Canada and I received nothing but compliments. I doubt anyone knew that these nails were press on nails! Before applying the nails I had to file the sides to match my nails as most were a little oversized. Who knew I had such small nail beds.

Each kit contains: 24 Nails, 30 Self-Adhesive Nail Tabs, 2g Glue, Applicator, Nail File, and a Manicure stick.

I applied the nail glue to my beds along with my Beauty secrets nail glue because I always have to double glue my nails. It’s a good thing I did because the next day my thumb nail popped off despite the double glue, which I expected to happen anyway. The designs on the nails were so beautiful and easy to match with any outfit because of its matte-ness. Unfortunately the polish on the actual nails began to scratch and peel after the third day which was a bit weird. I have yet to try the adhesive strips but I am sure they work well for like a one day occasion. I will say that I did wash a lot of dishes and use my hands frequently as I had these applied, so it was inevitable that they set started to come off after the 4th day as well. Glue does deteriorate over time so that is something to keep in mind.


Overall, Pretty Woman NYC gets 5 stars in my book for their formulation, customer service, and variety when it comes to nail care and nail adornment!

Happy Memorial Day My Nearly Perfect Peeps! The countdown begins for my birthday! I am a little salty because Toronto will be a little colder than expected but hey, what can I do? I have had to re-shop for my birthday outfit but I’m not complaining to say the least!

I have become a brand ambassador for Ami Club Wear and as an ambassador I get a chance to try and display some great piece for you lovelies. As I was on the site searching for some cute finds for my trip I fell in love with this black dress! It was the perfect midi length bodycon and long sleeve. What I love most about this black dress is the detailing. It hugs my curves in all the right places perfectly. I decided to pair this with a fur vest as it gives the dress a little more kick and nude heels. I rarely shop at Forever 21 but this cross body was too cute to pass up! The dress is currently on sale here, so get it while you can!

P.S. Satin Doll Company’s dagger necklace has of course made another appearance. I’m in love!

The battle for clear skin has been a battle fought with great tenacity and has built great candor in this war. Suffice to say, I have made great progress!!

If you are not sure what my current regimen is, please be sure to take a peek here.

What did I do?
For the most part, my skin is transforming to a butterfly, as my dead skin sheds. At first I was not too happy about the Retinol peeling my skin as if I was inherently born a reptile, however now, I understand that it serves a genuine purpose.

I can't disregard the fact that my eating habits have had a huge role in this transformation either. Ever since I have been trying to stick to an increase in green foods, my skin has been a little more radient as well! I will have an update on my daily food intake to provide you with a snapshot of what life may look like for me with this new "lifestyle change" foodwise.

Olehenriksen has also been super helpful the past month as I have been using their oily skin program and that probably has something to do with my glow!

Is your skin 100% clear?
Not in the least bit. In fact I am getting new cystic like acne postulates on my chin, which I will be tracking as I am not sure if they are forming due to a reaction to makeup or something I am consuming.

BUT buttercups, I can actually count how many friends I have on my face which is a HUGE improvement.


I will be back in three weeks with another update on my skin. Until then, keep shinning!

Whats up Nearly Perfect Peeps?! As the summer approaches, your glow up must be past exuberant. It can be tough to get that perfect look without looking greasy and so makeup may not be the solution as July and June hit. In my opinion, in order to get that perfect glow your natural skin care routine has to be perfected!


Thanks to Influenster, I was given a complimentary Ole Henriksen's balanced collection skin care oil control line to review. They went all out with this, because this set not only promotes your glow BUT also controls oil. How can you not have this product line in your life!? If you know me, then you know I struggle with oily skin, and my skin is always ready to fry something. Since I've found this line, my skin looks refreshed and the sun naturally bounces off of my face!



Let's take a look at what Ole Henriksen's set provides:


  • Find Your Balance- Oil Control Cleanser
  • Balancing Force- Oil Control Toner
  • Counter Balance- Oil Control Hydrator


So let us take a gander at what these bad boys are supposed to do.

1. Find Your Balance- Oil Control Cleanser



Claims:
Find Your Balance Oil Control Cleanser reduces excess oil and deeply cleanses pores. Formulated with Green Fusion Complex™, a proprietary blend of potent active botanicals—green tea, eucalyptus, algae (kelp) and Irish moss extracts—with natural antiseptic properties, and neem seed oil, its deep cleansing action helps unclog and purify pores without stripping skin, while the invigorating eucalyptus-peppermint scent awakens the senses. Powerful glycolic and lactic acids help loosen and lift dead skin cells that can cause pore-clogging build-up. Instantly, the complexion is refreshed and balanced with a healthy-looking Ole Glow™!
Deeply cleanses
Reduces oil
Purifies pores
Noncomedogenic

What I think: I can't stress this enough but my skin is oily! This cleanser for me serves as both a cleanser and makeup remover. It leaves your pores tighten and feels minty fresh. It has a strong scent, close to eucalyptus but it smells refreshing if you like the eucalyptus minty scent. I use this in the morning and the night with my Vanity Planet spin brush, and it really gets into my pores. I did find that upon rinsing my skin, it can feel too tight at times and a little drying but I get that mostly in the morning if I scrub too hard.


2. Balancing Force-Oil Control Toner


Claims: 
Controls oil, helps minimize the appearance of pores and freshens skin

This concentrated facial astringent effectively removes excess oil and refines pores—without stripping skin. It’s formulated with Green Fusion Complex™, a proprietary blend of potent active botanicals—green tea, eucalyptus, algae (kelp) and Irish moss extracts—with natural antiseptic properties. With a powerful blend of both BHA and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs)—salicylic, glycolic and lactic acids—and neem seed oil, its gentle clarifying action helps unclog, purify and minimize the appearance of pores. This refreshing toner features an energizing eucalyptus-peppermint scent. Instantly, the complexion is fresh and invigorated with a matte, healthy-looking Ole Glow™.
Controls oil
Helps minimize the appearance of pores
Freshens skin
Noncomedogenic


What I think: This toner is the holy grails of holy grails! If you don't buy anything else from this set, you have to buy this! Using this everyday has really helped my pores close and I think it's the star player for oil control. I think this toner has to be on everyone's bathroom counter! The fact that this contains salicylic acid makes this even better because it helps to smooth my acne. Gets no better than this!


3. Counter Balance- Oil control Hydrator



Claims: 



Hydrates, controls oil, mattifies and reduces the appearance of pores


Finally, oily skin meets its matte. Developed as the product Ole wishes he had during his own struggle with oily skin, this lightweight, mattifying hydrator gives oily and combination skin types the essential moisture they crave. Oily skin needs hydration, too, to look its healthy best.

This innovative moisturizer is powered by Green Fusion Complex™, a proprietary blend of potent active botanicals—green tea, eucalyptus, algae (kelp) and Irish moss extracts—with natural antiseptic properties. Combined with neem seed oil and powerful alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), it helps keep pores clear and skin matte all day long while maintaining optimal hydration and a healthy balance.

This groundbreaking formula also significantly improves the wear of foundation for up to 8 hours, making makeup meltdown a thing of the past. The complexion is soft, smooth and refreshed with a healthy-looking, matte Ole Glow™!
Hydrates
Controls oil
Mattifies
Reduces the appearance of pores
Noncomedogenic

In an independent, lab-verified study, Counter Balance Oil Control Hydrator improved the wear of foundation for 8 hours.


What I think: Ok this is the star of the show when it comes to your glow up shorties! This has to be one of the lightest most moisturizing sets I have ever used when it comes to hydrating your skin. For most it mattifies the skin then the glow comes through, but for me it automatically has my skin glowing! It unfortunately doesn't help my foundation wear, but that's my only qualm. If I really needed something to have my foundation last it would be a bomb primer.



I have been using this for about a month and half now and I truly can say this system is a keeper for my glowing days in the summer. It is totally worth the price and with twice a day use it can really last you about three months. You can find these bad boys at Sephora or even the Ole Henriksen's website. Trust me, it is worth my investment, I even have some of my own family members using it.

What skin care routine do you use for your glow up?

It's Monday again my Nearly Perfect Peeps. I have a week and a half until I leave for Canada and quite honestly I am pumped! Over the weekend I did some preparing for the trip by shopping with one of my great friends! We found some bad(aka good) outfits for only 10 bucks! Yes 10 bucks. I will post about this new store discovery later on in the week.

I believe I am most excited for the trip because I get to dress up and look like I am someone's child, because most times I'm in sweats and a baggy shirt.

Yesterday, I had the chance to try on some of the clothes sent to me for review! And ohhhwee did these pieces make me feel Fab! 5.99 fashion brings out the treasure hunter in you. As I stated in my last post, with 5.99 Fashion things sell out fast, so you have to snatch the cute looks while you can. The latest craze has been choker dresses and and choker necklaces. A choker attachment sometimes omits the need for a necklace. I however chose to incorporate Satin Doll Co. Jewelry  for my necklace and bracelet in my look. I have paired the dress with black heels and a blue (generic name brand) bag to complement my dress from you guessed it, 599 Fashion. If you have not stopped by 599 Fashion yet, I am telling you, that you are missing out on sweet deals!! Take a trip on over there now to see what kind of discounts they have. Please remember everything is under 10 bucks! Use the code: FW418 for 20% off your first order!
