Beauty Minute-Seche

As part of my blogging goals for 2013 I’ve created a revised schedule for blogging so that I can focus more on the topics I love best. Wednesdays will be dedicated to sharing some beauty tips, tricks and products to make your life easier and more beautiful. I can’t wait to share my best ideas and discoveries with you! I also plan to try some new things, too and promise to share what I learn along the way.

My first product tip is Seche Clear Crystal Clear Base Coat and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. I recently found out about these amazing products while visiting my in-laws.  My mother-in-law and I did our nails together using the colors she had hanging around the house along with this set of Seche products. Although I have always been a believer in the power of a base coat and top coat, my confidence has been shaken by a variety of sub-par products. These two have totally changed my life! They go on so slick and smooth and that top coat dries so incredibly fast with a nice shine. My last few manicures have lasted many days longer as a result of this added layer of tough protection. Translation? You need this. (And no, I wasn’t paid to say that.)

About a year and a half ago, in an effort to save money I committed to doing my own manicures and pedicures. Although I’ve done it for years, I never felt super confident, but my skills have dramatically improved over the last year and I have to say I’m getting pretty great at it! Now I can fully say that I would rather do it myself than pay to have it done, because I know when I do my own nails I always get them just the way I want them, and buying my own nail polish is a lot cheaper than paying for a mani-pedi at the nail salon. Looking to save some moo-lah in 2013? This is a great (and fun) way to do it!
