Natures Bounty Hair Skin and Nails Vitamin – Review

Here’s a well-known fact, after having kids and lack of eating a balanced meal (everyday) my nails were very brittle. The slightest manipulation would split my nails; aside from years of wearing acrylics and using the wrong chemical products.

While shopping in the grocery store, I ran across a new line of vitamins call Natures Bounty Hair, Skin, and Nails.  I was skeptical because some vitamins do not produce the results they proclaim on the bottle. Needless to say, I purchased the gummy vitamins and here’s what I discovered:

450 (1)

1.  They taste really good!  I almost forgot I was chewing a vitamin and took one too many.  No worries, I didn’t have any side effects.

2.  They gave me a boost of energy which is the normal deficiency in my body.

3.  They did not make my stomach ache.  This is a common problem (for me) with other hair, skin, and nail vitamins.

The ultimate result is that my nails look amazing!  I’ve never had long nails but the health of my cuticles look so much better.  The strength of my nails have also improved and signs of deficiencies are not as noticeable.

In regards to my skin, I have a natural glow and thankful I added this vitamin to my skin care regimen.  I am waiting for the hair growth results because it’s in a natural (chemical free) state and will have an official update in May 2016.

I wanted to share Natures Bounty Hair, Skin, and Nails Gummies vitamins with everyone because it’s really an awesome product!

Sally Hansen once again amped up the runway looks with stunning nail designs for amazing designers Misha Nonoo, Adam Selman, Tanya Taylor, Phillip Lim and Prabal Gurung.

unnamed (50)

THE INSPIRATION

 

Misha Nonoo’s Spring Summer 16 collection was inspired by the idea of a movement in all senses. A movement can be a graceful motion with grand results. From the colorfully bold, modern lines of the 60s’ minimal art movement to the simultaneous spirited beginnings of the women’s rights movement, Misha has created a playful yet powerful wardrobe that brings us to the present day. Misha’s goal has always been to create a uniform for women as well as embracing the individual. Embracing the strength of the individual, Misha invites the modern woman to her world.

 

 

THE NAIL LOOK

 

Misha Nonoo turned to Sally Hansen, the #1 Nail Color and Nail Care brand in the US, and Madeline Poole, Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador, to create two exclusive looks. To complement Misha’s Spring Summer 2016 collection, Madeline envisioned a minimalistic look with a bold twist. For the first style, models wore Complete Salon Manicure in Almost Almond with gold star accents, while the second look featured Complete Salon Manicure in Red My Lips with a lightning bolt detail. Madeline then used Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Gilty Party to create the detailing on the pinky and middle fingers, giving the classic colors an unexpected edge.

Almost Almond, Red My Lips and Gilty Party are part of Sally Hansen’s award-winning Complete Salon Manicure collection that infuses trend-setting shades with an expert-quality formula to deliver salon-caliber results. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure delivers seven salon manicure steps in one bottle. Chip resistant strength joins gel-quality shine. Must-have color meets nourishing benefits. Plus, with a built-in base and top coat, it’s everything you need to achieve a professional manicure at home. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Almost Almond, Red My Lips and Gilty Party cost $7.99 each.

 

THE MANICURIST

 

Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador Madeline Poole is a nail expert working in New York and LA. Trained as a painter, Madeline worked odd jobs like vintage poster restoration as an art student in Baltimore. Her unique talent in crafting innovative designs, emphasis on skin care and attention to the hand as a whole makes her one of the most sought after names in the beauty industry. As part of the collaboration with Sally Hansen, Madeline will help set the artistic direction for a new generation of modern nail looks and collections with her fashion-forward vision on a worldwide basis.

THE INSPIRATION

 

A collection inspired by a long-forgotten nudist colony in Hawaii; full of prints, bright colors and frills, we wanted a nail that gave the girls a more tomboy edge to balance the femininity of the clothes.

THE NAIL LOOK

 

For Adam Selman’s highly anticipated Spring/Summer 2016 Collection, he turned to Sally Hansen, the #1 Nail Color and Nail Care brand in the US, and Madeline Poole, Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador, to create an exclusive nail look.

Madeline explains, “Adam Selman’s collection was inspired by a long-forgotten nudist colony in Hawaii, and features bold prints, bright colors and frills to evoke a tropical feel. We wanted to balance the feminity of the clothes with a nail look that gave the girls more of a tomboy edge. The nails were ironically painted with nails: we used the head of a construction nail dipped in Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Dark Hue-mor to paint haphazardly placed circles on clear nails. The look feels as if the girls painted it on themselves with a marker.”

Dark Hue-mor is part of Sally Hansen’s award-winning Complete Salon Manicure collection that infuses trend-setting shades with an expert-quality formula to deliver salon-caliber results. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure delivers seven salon manicure steps in one bottle. Chip resistant strength joins gel-quality shine. Must-have color meets nourishing benefits. Plus, with a built-in base and top coat, it’s everything you need to achieve a professional manicure at home. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Dark Hue-mor costs $7.99.

THE INSPIRATION

 

The Tanya Taylor Spring Summer 2016 collection focuses on vibrant pigments, novel textures and ornate architectural motifs. Inspired by a recent trip Tanya took to Kenya, Tanzania and Morocco, this season’s woman is wrapped in painterly oversized floral prints, loose silk knits and reinterpretations of classic plaids. There is a focus on fluidity in both fabric and mood. Playfully proportioned silhouettes are enhanced with embroidered lasercutting, laced ties, and featherweight crystal embellishment.

THE NAIL LOOK

 

This season, Tanya Taylor turned to Sally Hansen, the #1 Nail Color and Nail Care brand in the US, and Madeline Poole, Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador, to create exclusive nail looks.

Madeline explains, “Tanya’s collection is an homage to the hand-made textiles, delicate beadwork and vivid dyes used in Africa, and I wanted to continue that aesthetic. I designed a striped nail look that mimics the multicolored, layered jewelry of the Maasai people, giving each model her own unique combination of five different stripe colors in various thicknesses.”

Arm Candy, Kook A Mango, Ruby Do, Water Color, Dark Hue-mor and In Full Blue-m are part of Sally Hansen’s award-winning Complete Salon Manicure collection that infuses trend-setting shades with an expert-quality formula to deliver salon-caliber results.

Fox 45 Morning News Segment: Spring Cleaning Products

The whole experience of being on television is new to me but also very exciting. It’s an aspect of my brand that I didn’t pursue (or imagine) but was presented to me through a public relations firm located in New York.

Please see the segment below:

Fox 45 Baltimore – Discussing Spring Cleaning Products

Beauty Box 5 February Subscription and Fun Products

My monthly subscription from Beauty Box 5 arrived and I was pleased to receive all of the goodies in this month’s box.

The company sent over Every Beauty Makeup Remover Pads, Rockstar Nail Polish, Elizabeth Mott Mascara, H20 Plus Spa Hand & Nail Cream, and John Frieda Shampoo/Conditioner.

I was super excited to use the Elizabeth Mott Mascara because I actually needed to purchase a new tube, so my subscription box came right on time. And the product lived up to my expectation: no clumps, goes on smooth, and wears well through out the day.

The Rockstar Nail Polish was actually one of the first items that caught my attention due to my love of the color pink…the nail sprinkles and I am excited to have my “caviar” nails done!

And of course, I welcome receiving any new hand cream because there’s so much dry air this season. To sum it up, I am enjoying my subscription and will post an updated photo of the nail polish once I have my weekly manicure.
