The Best Top Coat Ever

I hate when I smudge my polish. Like most people, I can be very impatient waiting for my polish to dry.

My favorite remedy: Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.  
Seche Vite Fast dry Top Coat

It's my favorite quick dry top coat.  It dries super fast and glossy. Quite frankly, it's the best top coat ever!!! In my opinion.

You can polish your nails, go to bed and wake up in the morning with no sheet marks.  It dries that fast. 

It is formaldehyde and DBP free and is not tested on animals.

It does have one flaw, though, if you are a person who is concerned about questionable cosmetic ingredients. I am one of those people but I feel the ingredient concern is low with this product.

Seche Vite contains toluene as it's solvent. It evaporates very quickly which is why Seche Vite dries so fast.

Some chemicals including DBP (dibutyl phthalate), toluene and TPHP (triphenyl Phosphate) used in some nail polish brands can cause birth defects and are hormone disruptors.

Toluene is also used in paints, glues, paint thinners, inks and stain removers.  Toluene is a naturally occurring chemical. It is found in crude oil and in the Tolu

I feel as long as there is plenty of ventilation in the room where you are polishing, the toluene won't be a threat. Plus, this is a very short exposure.

If you are pregnant, I would avoid it just to be on the safe side.

 You can find Sech Vite at salons, some drug stores, and beauty stores such as Ulta for about $10.00. Love it! It's the best!

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out. Read more about blackhead, whiteheads and blind pimples This is a common problem for the under-eye area. It is a dry, delicate area of the skin. I see it a lot on my clients. Heavy products

Why does my lipstick change color on my lips?

So, you found a gorgeous shade of peachy nude lipstick.... right on trend. It looks amazing in the lipstick tube but when you put it on, it turns orange within 15 minutes!  It happens to me all the time. Pigments in the lipstick react with the chemistry of the skin and change color. This color shift is due to the pH of the skin. Our skin has an acidic pH of 4.5 to 5.5. It varies slightly from person to person which is why lipstick changes on some people and not others.  The oil, sweat and bacteria on our skin create a protective layer called the acid mantle with its pH of 4.5 to 5.5. The acid mantle can change due to how we treat our skin.  The skin pH can change due to the environment.  The sun, as well as pollution, can affect skin's pH.  What we eat can affect the pH of our skin.  Sweating and cosmetic products can also change pH.  The skin will always try to get back to 4.5-5.5 no matter how we abuse it.  Use gentle pH balanced skin care products, eat a healthy diet w


This post is all about dermatofibromas and some remedies to help make them look better and ways hide them. It includes my Amazon Affiliate Links to help you find the products I talk about. Q. I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j
