My 10 Favorite Tried and True Nail Products – you will love them too!

Rosey’s top 10 favorite nail products!

You don’t have to be a licensed professional to purchase and or use these products.  Over the years I have tried hundreds of products and in my professional opinion these are the best for me and my clients.  Today many companies give access to the public to purchase their products through their web stores even if you are not a licensed professional.

You may have your favorites but don’t get caught up in the hype of many that mass promote their products.  Some lesser known companies like Cuccio make some of the best nail products on the market today.

 

  1. Cuccio Forte Nail Strengthener – My absolute all time favorite product – Cuccio Forte Nail Strengthener!  I love love love this product and cannot say enough great things about it.  You can read what some of my customers and clients say about this “miracle in a bottle” product here.  This product will improve the health of your nails in as little as 2 weeks time.  However I tell my customers and clients it can take up to 6 months for a full nail growth (from the cuticle to the free edge) so if you don’t see an immediate improvement you will just give it some time. You will be amazed at how your nails will get healthier and stronger using this product.  You can buy this product direct from me here.

StarNight Laser Review and Giveaway!

starnightlaser

I had the pleasure of reviewing the StarNight Laser (original) light projector tonight.  I was so intrigued by this product ever since I saw it advertised on television that I just had to review it.  I’m married to Ebenezer Scrooge now, he doesn’t want to put up any decorations for the holidays.  We have invested thousands of dollars in outdoor holiday decorations but as he grows older he has no ambition to string lights on each and every shrub or put up holiday decorations on our property.  So the StarNight Laser is the perfect solution to a lazy husband who no longer wants to decorate the outside of the house for the holidays.

Take the StarNight Laser out of the box, plug it into an electrical outlet outside or inside your home and you are done. No ladders, no tools, nothing needed and nothing could be easier.  Even my Ebenezer Scrooge can do that much.

StarNight Laser comes in two different models, StarNight Laser (original) which is what I received for review and the newer StarNight Laser Dancers.

StarNight Lasers and StarNight Laser Dancers are the fastest and easiest way to decorate your home, both indoors and outdoors, all year round. You can choose from different settings and patterns to customize your lights depending on the holiday or occasion.  StarNight Laser can be used for birthday parties, graduations, weddings, holiday decorating and any occasion you can think of to make your home come alive.

StarNight Lasers are designed with eight different programs of twinkling star-kissed lights. StarNight Laser Dancers add motion to the star field and dance with seven different programs.

Each product covers approximately 2500 square feet of space with breathtaking stars. StarNight Lasers and StarNight Laser Dancers give you the option of red, green, or a combination of both red and green lights.

Each single set of StarNight Lasers and StarNight Laser Dancers includes 1 lawn-mounting stake, 1 extra-long heavy-duty cord, 1 floor-mounting stand, and 1 StarNight laser. Every StarNight Laser is water-resistant and has a built-in automatic timer. This means they can withstand the harshest weather conditions.

I tried my best to take some video for you of the StarNight Laser outside my home unfortunately the camera was not cooperating.  I didn’t have a enough light but here is a still photo that came out decent.

You can purchase either model of the StarNight Laser directly from the company website or on Amazon.com.

Make a small investment in the StarNight Laser so you can decorate the entire inside or outside of your home in no time flat.

Mally Beauty Cosmetics Review!

I had the pleasure of receiving some wonderful make up from Mally Beauty for review.  Many of you may be familiar with Mally Beauty Cosmetics and it’s founder Mally Roncal but if not let me give you a little background on the company and it’s founder.

Makeup artist Mally Roncal’s love affair with all things glam started at an early age. As a young girl growing up in upstate New York, Mally began experimenting with makeup on her mother, an incredible beauty who was and continues to be her biggest inspiration. From that early age, Mally’s parents instilled in her the philosophy that the things that make us different are the qualities that make us beautiful—a mantra that has guided Mally in her every pursuit. Mally has traveled the globe doing makeup for some of the most fab faces in the world, including Beyoncé Knowles, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, Teri Hatcher, Celine Dion, Lee Ann Womack, Ashlee Simpson, Angelina Jolie, and Heidi Klum. Renowned for her ability to make her clients look and feel beautiful, Mally became the go-to makeup artist for all things beauty, sharing her advice in the pages of top magazines and on shows like Oprah, The Today Show, Rachael Ray, and The View. Today her line consists of over 1,000 products designed to deliver what Mally calls “bulletproof” beauty: user-friendly, multitasking products that truly stay put all day.

I received for review Mally’s High Shine Liquid Lipstick in Orchid, H3 Gel Lipstick and Evercolor Shadow Stick in Moonlight and Mahogany.

The High Shine Liquid Lipstick Pen in Orchid – is a 4-in-1 product that includes your lip primer, lipstick, lip gloss, and lip liner all in one.  I love the convenience of having it in a brush on pen in a compact container to slip right into my handbag.  This product is available in 31 shades so there has to be one or more that is right for your taste.

The H3 Gel Lipstick in Poppie – is a gel-infused H3 Gel Lipstick is a gel-based lipstick rather than wax-based. This lasted for hours without me having to reapply I will certainly buy more colors from this line.  Check out all 12 shades here.

The Evercolor Shadow Stick – is your primer, shadow base, and eye shadow all in one. You can also use it as an eyeliner.  That’s four ways to use this one product which saves you money. The Evercolor Shadown Stick is available in 24 shades check them out here. 

You can purchase any of the Mally Beauty cosmetics at her website MallyBeauty.com or they are available at QVC.com

Durilaq Gel Polish Review!

There are many brands of gel polish on the market today, so many brands, that it can get confusing which to chose.  As a licensed manicurist I try to be open to any and all the brands being sold from the high end to the drug store brands.  The newest products, from some well known brands, require no LED light curing.  These are extremely convenient especially for the do-it-yourselfer who doesn’t want to go to the salon every week or two to have their polish changed.

I recently received a bottle of Durilaq, (from the makers of Duri Polish) a non-LED light curing gel polish in O Sole Mia (a beautiful red) to test.  I was sent one polish and one top coat. No base coat is required just two coats of Durilaq color and one coat of Durilaq Top Coat and you’re ready to go. The instructions recommends that you wait two minutes in between polish coats to allow it to dry.

The Perfecter Pro Grip Digital Fusion Styler Review

If you are anything like me you jump at the chance to purchase the latest styler on the market to make styling your hair faster and easier. I’m no different especially since I do not have the “hair-styling” gene.  Yes you all laugh but I cannot do my own hair for the life of me. I can do nails all day long, but hair, now that’s another story. It’s not that I don’t give each and every styling product that I buy a good try, I just can never seem to figure out how to make my hair look like the photos or infomercial.

So when the folks at Calista Tools the maker of the Perfecter Pro Grip Digital Fusion Styler asked me to test and review their product I though on no not me I won’t know how to use it or give it a fair assessment.  Well I can finally say I “can” style my hair.  This product cannot be simpler or easier to use and it does a wonderful job of styling hair in just minutes. It heated up so quickly (the instructions states tree minutes time but I honestly do not think it even took three minutes) so if you are in a hurry or late for work this product won’t keep you waiting.

Peanut Butter & Co. – Bestie Nut Butters

The folks at Peanut Butter & Co. have asked me to create a recipe using one of their new Bestie Nut Butters.  I choose the cashew butter to create a recipe as it’s my favorite nut butter.  This delicious nut butter is pure with no sugar added.  None of the Bestie nut butters that Peanut Butter & Co. make contain added sugars.  The Cashew Nut Butter a nothing more than just cashews, sunflower oil and a touch of sea salt so you can feel good about serving them to your family.  Some of these nut butters on the market today have names of chemicals I cannot even pronounce. Peanut Butter & Co. products are as pure as if you made them yourself at home.

My recipe is simple but delicious.  A low calorie alternative to ice cream without the fat and calories but just as amazing to the taste buds.  This recipe is vegan approved and highly recommended by my niece Elise who is a strict vegan.

You will need a food processor, 1 medium to large banana (frozen), 2 tablespoons of Bestie Nut Butter (your choice), 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (please use the good stuff not the artificial product) and a splash (no more than 1/4 cup) of almond milk.

I cut up the banana before I freeze it because it makes it a lot easier to place in the food processor when you are ready to prepare your treat.  The riper your banana the sweeter your treat will be.

Put all the ingredients into your food processor and let it whirl!  You will have the most delicious low-calorie frozen treat to enjoy.

Checkout the entire line of Peanut Butter & Co. products on their website.  Can’t find them in your area?  You can order them directly from the company or find them on Amazon (here)!
