Nail Products

Hi beautiful! Yesterday I headed in to the city to get a Shellac manicure, however everything was fully booked (and super pricey!) so I decided to do a simple manicure at home. I lightly filed my nails and used these products below. The OPI "Nail Envy" has been one of my must-have nail products for about two years now. It makes them so strong and allows them to grow nicely. The nail polish I used is called "Nude Pink" by Revlon, and I love colors like this! It is especially good because you can keep it for quite a while without noticing the chips. Then I apply the OPI "Rapi Dry" top coat to help it dry quicker and to give it a nice glossy finish. I used to love the Seche Vite top coat, but found it got thick and clumpy very quickly - so I stopped using that one. The OPI one works really well!

I always apply Moroccan oil (olive / coconut oil is good too) to my cuticles, especially now when it's cold outside, to keep them moisturized - and it helps the manicure look good too :)

It's good to give them a break from Shellac from time to time :)

  12. Very pretty! I also use Seche Vite top coat and absolutely love how fast it dries the nail polish. Does the OPI top coat dry as fast as the Seche Vite? Also, how many coats of the color polish did you apply?

  24. Hi Annie ! I wanted to know if you could do a video about your current skincare routine and your new foundation routine ? (if you have a new foundation routine, of course, lol).

    Also there is a question I want to ask you for quite some time now, but since you're into health, I'm really curious what is your opinion about birth control pills ? I know that they're not the best for your body, and I wanted to know if you know any natural alternatives to hormonal contraceptives ? Or if you personally do take the pill ? I'm just wondering what are your views about it and maybe if you think it's an interesting topic to talk about, you could do a video ?

    Thank you so much for being such a wonderful inspiration Annie ! ♥

  29. Hello Annie. Je suis francaise, je ne parle pas anglais, mais je te conseille de tester le top coat Nutra Nail
    http://www.iherb.com/Nutra-Nail-Speed-Dry-30-Second-Top-Coat-50-fl-oz-15-ml/41810
    Il fait incroyablement briller les ongles et prolonge bien la durée du vernis.

    Bisous
