Orly Nail Rescue ($7.99) The Orly Nail Rescue Kit is a complete kit from Orly that includes three products to fix cracked, split or broken nails, so nails grow long and beautiful. A unique formula and easy application makes repair long-lasting and almost invisible!
Kit includes nail repair brush on glue, nail repair powder and a mini-buffer.
Orly Nail Rescue is by far my favorite product of 2013 thus far. I cannot believe I have lived this long without. Orly Nail Rescue helps mend broken or chipped nails. No more sporting a band-aid over my broken nail until it grows out. No more cutting it super short. The repair kit comes with everything you need to fix your nail: glue, powder, and a buffer. It is very easy and quick too. All you do is brush on a little bit of glue over the chipped/broken part of your nail. Then, you dip your nail into the powder. Lastly, you wait for the glue to dry (depends on how much you layered on) and when it does, you buff it smooth so the glue is smooth and blends with your nail. Once you have the glue and powder all buffed out, you can’t even really tell your nail is broken. If you paint nail polish over your broken, you really can’t notice your nail is broken at all. It’s amazing! The glue and powder holds up very well too! It held my nail together for almost 3 weeks before I noticed the glue starting to chip off a little bit. But that was okay, because by then my nail was ready to be clipped.
I simply cannot rave enough about the Orly Nail Rescue. It’s a gift from heaven I tell you! You can find it at Sally’s Beauty. I included a link above next to the listed cost.
Quick tip: don’t paint on too much glue because that means you have more to buff away once it dries. Just apply a thin layer of glue. If you feel it’s not thick enough, you can always layer another layer after it dries. Don’t be like me and pile on the glue all in one shot. Work in thin layers.

OPI You Don’t Know Jacques ($8.50)
I love this shade! It’s such a great neutral for Fall or an alternative for black. It’s a grayish brown shade with a hint of plum. I would have to say more brown than gray though. It goes on very smoothly and easily with no streaks. I feel OPI You Don’t Know Jacques is a very unique shade. I haven’t seen or come across a shade that is similar to this. It is quite the edgy, chic shade I must say.

My hair has been getting damaged a lot from all the new hair tools I’ve been trying out. I needed something to fix it. A friend recommended this to me and I have been loving it ever since.

It even acts as a heat protectant too! The spray smells good and leaves your hair smelling good too. The scent isn’t overwhelming. It’s just a hint.

OPI Skyfall James Bond Collection ($8.50 each)
For this season’s holiday collection, OPI released a collection celebrating the 50th Anniversary of James Bond. Out of the 13 colors from the collection, 4 colors really caught my eye: The Man With The Golden Gun (read review), On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, You Only Live Twice, and The World Is Not Enough.
On Her Majesty’s Secret Service is shimmery, smoky grey. The formula is on the thin side and will definitely need a 3rd coat. In the photo below, I only used 2 coats and you can tell I need one more coat.
You Only Live Twice is a shimmery red color that reminds me of the holiday parties. It’s very festive. The formula isn’t quite as thin as On Her Majesty’s Secret Service so you can get away with just 2 coats. I would go for 3 though for good measure. In the photo below, I used 2 coats.
The World Is Not Enough is shimmery light taupe color. Just like On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, the formula is thin. I think it may actually be thinner. You will need at least 3 coats for sure. In the photo below, I used 2 coats.

OPI The Man With The Golden Gun ($38)
OPI The Man With The Golden Gun is a clear top coat with real flakes 18k gold. For reals! Real gold! It is limited edition and is part of the OPI Sky Fall Collection released in honor of the 50th Anniversary of James Bond. The top coat comes in a gold bottle that is boxed with a flip top. I thought when applying the top coat a lot of the gold flakes would come out, but instead it was really sparse. In the photo below, it took me 2 coats to get that much gold flakes onto my nails. I also found if you apply a second coat without letting the first coat dry a little bit, it would just brush off some of the gold flakes already on the nail. A bit annoying if you ask me. On the plus side, There is no need to add a top coat over this top coat. The flakes lay flat and don’t stick up. I can run my finger over my nails and just feel smoothness. The gold color is very versatile and can be combined with almost any color. It’s quite timeless. Also, I’ve been noticing a lot of gold this fall season so far. It was all over the runways. Overall, I feel it’s fun to have. It’s not something I think everybody has to have. I just wish it wasn’t $38.
