NTB best summer nail polish brights

More summer favourites! This time I am listing my favourite bright summer colours! The really bright and intense shades that look amazing in the sunlight.  I often have trouble deciding which colour I want to use because I want to wear all of them at once! If you have not checkout out my other post on my favourite summer pastels, check that out here.  Again there is one colour that actually has the teeny, tiniest hit of pearlescence, but it can’t be seen on the nails.  So without further ado, there are the shades that made the cut for my summer bright nail polish.

Earth Day beauties!

Hey!

So last Friday was Earth Day, and slowly but surely, lots of cosmetic companies, big and small, have been embracing more natural and organic formulations.  So for you earth-conscious beauties out there, here are a few brands to look out for:

HAIR

  • Oyin Handmade – probably my favourite, natural haircare line for women with curly, kinky or coily hair.  I cannot live without the Burnt Sugar Pomade.  Really.  The Juices are also really good too! Still have to try their new Hair Dew.
  • Karen’s Body Beautiful – Another great line based out of my old neighbourhood of Fort Greene Brooklyn.  The Sweet Ambrosia is the go-to product.  But I am really excited for all the new products that will be coming out this year.
  • Qhemet Biologics – I think that their Amla and Olive Heavy Cream is amazing! It’s also their top seller.
  • Kinky Curly –  A very popular brand with products like Knot Today (my staple leave-in conditioner) and the Curling Custard (which I have YET to try, but summer is coming up so….).
  • Anita Grant – love from across the pond!!! And now they have a U.S. distributor – Hairrogant.  And right now they actually have a sale on the top 5 selling AG products!  I would recommend the babassu shampoo bars and the Rhassoul Deep Condish.
  • Aubrey Organics– available at Whole Foods and other retailers, I use their GPB conditioner as a protein conditioner and the Honeysuckle Rose conditioner as a deep moisturizer.
  • SheaMoisture – Love their Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo and their body butters! Available at Target and Walgreens.

I don’t every remember every seeing that many people on Manhattan Island ever!!! People were just out and about, having a ball! SoHo was unbelievable…People like peas! 🙂

One place that I visited was Henri Bendel.  Once inside, I discovered that the GINGER+LIZ counter was offering free polish changes!!! Claro que si, I could not resist!!!!
