The best time for putting on Nail Polish

Which day of the week, time of the day do you put on your nail polish?

I like to put on nail polish at home because visiting a nail bar will take a while with transportation and such. Also, the reality that you get watched by passerby can get a little intimidating. Painting nail polish has its perks because you can take a break from doing chores at home for a fun little task. 

For years I have struggled to have the perfect shine on my nails because I tend to paint them before going to bed. As I sleep, my nails get all sorts of patterns stamped on while moving my hand around. By the time morning hits, the top coat becomes matte with annoying scratches. With the new job I have recently, waking up early has become a routine thing. On weekends, I tend to wake up before everyone in the house does (around 7AM on a Saturday morning). Its the perfect time to paint nails because you won't be going back to bed (hopefully), and while you lie on the desk afterwards, there will be plenty of time to dry. 

In addition, I find essie top-coat nail polish is formulated with a fast-drying ingredient which works really well. Its definitely worth trying out!

John Frieda

John Frieda is my 2014 favorite hair product. The brand was founded by a British celebrity hairstylist and was acquired in 2002 by Kao Corporation, Japan. John Freida is a collection of salon-inspired products to solve the most difficult hair problems. 

What's in the picture (from left to right):
Luxurious Volume Touchably Full
Frizz Ease Collection

 I came across the brand about 2 years back at a beauty event. At first I was a little skeptical about the product, as most hair products over promise and under delivers. However, I was really impressed with the results from 1 wash! Their Voluminous shampoo is one of the BEST shampoos that helps the most delicate hair without the use of hairspray. In addition, the nourishing factor keeps your hair smooth and silky after each wash. This is a good alternative to salon hair products, for a fraction of the price.

Highly Recommended.
