Garlic Nail Strengthener

• • • •

Do you have crappy nails!? ME TOO!! Paper-thin nails that always break, peel and bend. Not cool! I’ve tried all of the polishes that promise to give you strong and long nails, but I have never noticed a difference.

The other day, on a rerun of Dr. Oz, they were talking about how garlic can help in strengthening and growing your nails! This may seem weird and stinky but don’t worry…the smell disappears once it is dry!

I just started this method so I will report back on the long term results soon!

Follow these simple steps and let me know if it works for you!

  1. Use any basic clear polish.
  2. Finely chop or mince 1 clove of garlic.
  3. Drain approximately 1/4 of the polish out of the bottle as to not overflow.
  4. Pack the chopped garlic into the bottle.
  5. Put the bottle away to steep for 7-10 days.
  6. Apply 2 coats of polish to bare clean nails and let it dry.

 

*Also…I would like to apologize to my followers for all the annoying e-mails last Friday. I just learned how to use Polyvore and I didn’t realize what I was doing on there was showing up on my blog too. I was trying to make an Albin Home Vision Board.

Yeah mon, Jamaican vacation!

My husband and I love going on beach vacations and this year we opted for Montego Bay, Jamaica. We have been to Jamaica before, but we have never stayed in Montego Bay.  We are totes excited to say the least!  We decided in our limited traveling experience that it is best not to check a bag if possible.  That being said, I have become a minimalist in the packing department. (my husband thinks it is not necessary to pack everything I own)#maybeheisright.  When I saw this Nastygal dress on pursenboots (check out her blog here) it was love at first sight.  I had to have it!  I am really into mixed metal and metallic fashion trends right now. Whether it is cool silvers or rich golds, I can’t get enough of the shimmering fabrics and shiny accessories. The rose gold color of the studded bikini will make it easy to mix and match with other bathing suits, and the Brazilian bottoms were a good motivator. 😉 New fun funky sunglasses on beach vacations is kinda “my thing” so when I saw these babies it was a no brainer. I always end up doing some kind of braid to keep my hair out of my way while in the water and I thought these little stars would be a fun addition to a braid.

Shine on! One love!
