How are your nails looking?

Hi Bellas,

I'm not huge on my nails like I used to be. Oftentimes, my nails are unadorned and I feel it when my cuticles start to crack or a nasty hang nail comes out here and there. Whenever I see fellow bloggers like Yummy, AskMeWhats and Mischo Beauty with their beautiful nails I always feel a little guilty for neglecting mine.

However, I recently had the opportunity to try out some new nail products from Barielle. This was the perfect opportunity to sport nicely manicured nails without having to head to the salon.

I tried out an assortment of their products including:

Ultra Speed Dry Manicure Extender - I used this with my Essie nail polish, and my nails were chip free for over a week. The formula is really good, much better than my random top coat from Sally's. I can tell that when I applied it, it went on with a nice thick, shiny coat that sped up the drying process and also protected the nail color.

Professional Protective Hand Cream - With the winter months drying out our skin, everyone needs a good hand cream. This one isn't greasy and does the job.

Nail Strengthener Cream
My mom blessed me with hard as rocks nail so I didn't really have a use for this product. I plan to be giving it away in an upcoming contest though!

I'm holding onto these products for an upcoming contest as well. Stay tuned!

Check them out at . The site offers 15% off for your first order. They've been featured in all of the popular magazines including Allure, InStyle, and Cosmo. Not only do they offer nail products, but they offer lotions, foot creams and skin care products as well.
