Mani Monday|||Ready for Fall, I Couldnt Resist!

Hey guys so as promised here is MANI MONDAY
I'm actually quite excited to be back on track(;

Now I have a simple manicure in the shade: Single Ladies by Deborah Lippmann.
Let me go ahead and warn ya....I'm absolutely positively in love with this color. I want my children to wear it, my mom, i think I wanna be buried in it #knockonwood #nojinxinghere .

This is a beautiful color, especially for Fall! It goes on very smooth, like butter and is opaque in about 3-4 coats. I know that sounds like a lot but the colors are fast drying so time goes by fairly quick!

I added a simple little design on my ring fingers just to jazz up the manicure even though this color is bomb on its own.



Well, I hope that you enjoyed this Mani Monday, sorry it's short but I wanted to show this color & get back on track with blogging!
Hope your having a wonderful day; see ya!(:

Where Have You Gone Mani Monday?

 Hey guys! 
Today I want to tell you guys why I haven't been posting for Mani Monday.

Lately my poor nails have been super brittle and they also had a very bad case of peeling. Due to that I wanted to give them a break; I paint them a color one week and then give them a week to 'rest'.

Doing this has actually helped my nails and I couldn't be happier. 

I started using LAUNCHPAD by Dermelect Cosmeceuticals around a month and a half ago. I choose this product because its 3-free (Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde and Toluene). Every time I read the ingredients for a polish that would help my nails it always had one of the Big-3 so I was jsut at a lost. 

But one day in ULTA, I asked one of the ladies if they knew of any product that would fight against peeling but was 3-free and she led me to LAUNCHPAD. Now, this product is a little bit on the expensive side but for me it is totally worth it! Also I feel like an important question is, "Does it get gooey after a while?" and the answer as of right now would have to be no and I am about 1/4 done with the bottle.

Here are some pics of what my nails look like now (with one coat of LAUNCHPAD)

Some nails still have a bit to go but for the most part my nails are getting stronger and longer every day! If you guys have any suggestions of products to help nails, feel free to comment below!

I hope this little review was helpful & don't worry Mani Monday will be back very soon!(:
