New! Illamasqua UV Glow Nail Polish

Since it’s Manicure Monday I felt obligated to share … I just received my Illamasqua UV Glow nail polishes in the mail (huge online shopper) and can’t wait to use them! The new UV colors are part of the Paranormal Collection. This is one of my favorite nail items because the colors are so rich, bold, and last a long time.  I’ve been a big fan of the Faithful,Bacterium, and Charisma nail varnishes in the past and absolutely love them.  You can find your favorite Illamasqua hue and other beauty goodies at

My Top 10 Summer Beauty ESSENTIALS

During the summer our skin requires different care than it does in the winter. This could include a different skin regimen altogether, or maybe adding some things like sun block or self-tanners.
