Beauty Review: Nutra Nail Gel Perfect Manicure

I admit it. I am totally addicted to gel nail polish. Once you get used to having instantly dry nails after a manicure and no chips for two weeks, it’s hard to go back to a regular manicure.  Despite my love for gel, I’m not loving having to dish out around $80 a month so, I’ve decided to give Nutra Nail Gel Perfect a shot. It promises dry nails in 5 minutes with the beautiful luster appearance of gel but….no lamp required!  So, along with saving money I can give my hands a break from the UV light.

Nutra Nail Gel Color

The directions were fairly simple and the application process was easy.  The most important part is making sure your nails are nicely cleaned and buff before starting the process.  I chose the color Vintage Mauve for my first trial with this manicure.  What do you think?

Nutra Nail Gel Perfect

It really did dry with a nice shine in about 5 minutes.  Not bad for my first time.

I will update you in a later post on the durability of this manicure.  In the meantime, I’m really excited about my cheap, UV light-free, gel manicure!

Burak Uyan: Designer Shoes to Covet

I am always perusing the fashion magazines, blogs, and other media and every once and a while I come across something that makes my heart skip a beat.  Insert….Burak Uyan, shoe designer extraordinaire.  Uyan is a German-born designer that has had stints at Givenchy and Giambattista Valli before concentrating on his own fabulous collections. His shoes are divinely architectural and feminine and they ooze sexiness.  I imagine I would feel like a lioness on the prowl for my next victim in these shoes.  Since these are a little outside of my shoe budget, I have yet to try them on, but I do like the hidden platform design in most of these shoes which adds some extra comfort.   Below are a few of my faves I found on Polyvore.com.  Eat your heart out ;-)

Say ‘Hello’ to Your Fall Uniform

There are so many great things to love about fall.  Football, festivals, and my favorite….boot weather!  As much as I long for summer after a long winter, I think I look forward to cease all the sweating and the need to cozy up in a warm sweater a little more.  Hence, my idea of the perfect fall uniform.  First item is an open-front cardigan.  This is a great transition before needing and actual jacket.  I personally like ones that have a draping effect for a little more sophisticated look.  Second item, which I think everyone has, is a nice pair of dark wash jeans.  Preferably skinny ones that will tuck nicely into your third item….boots!  I am the queen of high heels but I actually prefer the style of riding boots the most.  A stiletto bootie is great for a night out but you will get a lot more wear out of a classic, tall leather boot.  Finally, top off the look with a patterned scarf for some extra flare.  And there you have it….your official fall uniform.
