Beauty: Banana Nails

I have been after a bright yellow polish for a while and was really happy when Surf & City sent over this one. It's perfectly mustard colored and makes me happy as I type. Maybe my signature summer nail color?

Wearing Essie's new Funky Limelight from the 2009 Neon collection, but I found a random drugstore knockoff by some brand called Color Club that is just as good and less than half the price.

Beauty Reviews: KO Nailpolish, Makeup Forever HD Powder, Guerlain Terracotta Kohl, Lolita Lempicka

I try soooo many beauty products & I'm always recommending them to friends and family who are probably sick of all my "omg you have to try this!" rants. So I've decided to put them here instead!

I can't say enough GREAT things about Dana, her assistant Nivea, and her awesome salon & equally awesome clients. And she doesn't just do "ethnic" hair - she kills it all around. And if you go, tell her who sent you! ;)

For the record, you guys have asked who does my hair before and I've never recommended anyone because I never felt like anyone was this worthy of a recommendation. I would NEVER steer you wrong. Go see Dana.

EDIT: Brilliance does not come cheap. I'm not sure what she charges normally - I got the whole kit-n-kaboodle. She was a splurge for me, but it was $ well spent: I got what I paid for. My strength is in my hair like Samson lol. Just means being on a tight budget for a few weeks. If you're interested, give her a call, tell her I sent you, and I'm sure she can work with you ;)
