Liquid Buff

nails

A few weeks back I was shooting content for The Estée Edit and got to talking to Olive and June nail salon owner Sarah Gibson Tuttle. I was telling her about how I’ve stopping painting my nails. I still get manicures, but having a color on my nails is too annoying. For starters, I be busy: I’m working out, cooking, doing dishes, carrying luggage, traveling, and unpacking boxes, daily. A manicure doesn’t last for longer than a day or two, and I’m too much of a visual perfectionist (the nice way of saying anal) to have chipped nails. I tried gel, but it made my nails break and took too much time to have put on and taken off.

Enter: Liquid Buff. When I told Sarah about my predicament she said “You need to try this” and handed me a bottle. “It’s a nourishing polish that gives the illusion of a buff and lasts for weeks.” she explained. I’ve been hooked ever since. When I looked it up online, it turns out that she actually created it with manicurist Jenna Hipp and RGB founder Gina Carney.  Formulated with nourishing Vitamin E and Biotin, one coat gives bare nails a flawless, natural look that lasts an entire week. Or two. Or three.

Come L’Amour Bois 1920

501595591_product_1

This limited edition perfume is the most magical thing I’ve ever smelled. It’s a warm scent (with tangerine, freesia, and gardenia) that transports you immediately to some cool parisian boutique with an impossibly chic shop girl. I’ve worn the same fragrance for years now, but it might just be time to switch it up.
