Polymer Top Coat

Non-Toxic Gel Top Coat

Basic manicures never seem to last. Gel manicures have long-lasting wear, but since I prefer using non-toxic nail products, something that fit both categories was pretty ย impossible to find. I couldn’t be more thrilled to discover a non-toxic polymer top coat in last month’s Julep Maven box.

Pastel Nails Julep Polymer Top Coat

The fast drying top coat gives nails a gel like coating, for the ultimate shine, and long-lasting wear. Waiting for a manicure to dry is something I’m sure anyone would love to eliminate from their beauty routine, and this 4-free top coat dries quickly, without smudging, making it the ultimate manicure must-have.

Slept-In Hair

Slept In Hair

After spotting Christine from DeSmitten‘s undone waves at the IFB Conference, I have been obsessed the effortlessly chic do. Christine shared her beauty must-have, Bumble and Bumble’s Brilliantine, and since we have a similar hair length, I couldn’t wait to try it! Later that day, Nicole Richie was spotted at The Grove (one of my favorite spots!) sporting a similar do (& much shorter bob.) I can’t get enough of this shiny slept-in look.
