Quality Transparent Nail Polishes

I was recently on a hunt for natural – looking nail polishes that leave the nails strong, shiny and don’t make impression when the nail polish starts to wear off. I came to a list of brands and specific models, from which I chose Essie. I bought all four mentioned on the web in connection with nude nails/french manicures/natural looks etc. Here is my review of them…

Kerastase Cristalliste Hair Mask

Kerastase Cristalliste Hair Mask is promoted as a product for shiny hair and it does contain some shiny particles, which you feel when you rub your fingers through your damp hair after you’ve applied the mask. I love it for the thickness it gives my hair though. Contrary to products that promise fullness but don’t deliver this one promises shine but delivers strength and weight, which is fine for my fine, airy hair. I like it so much that I spend the first day after washing without applying anything else – it gives my hair the volume and control it needs. A dream come true for a busy, working mom.
