You've probably heard the buzz around this "all-in-one" wonder oil, and we must admit, the hype holds up. Aside from being a cholesterol curbing cooking oil, coconut oil a great natural (and cheap!) alternative to a gambut of beauty products. You can now find coconut oil at most grocery stores, especially health-focused chains like Whole Foods and Trader Joes. When using coconut oil on the body, you want the purest form to cash in on its beauty benefits. So look for one that is organic, extra virgin and un-refined. When you get it home, you may find that it is a solid white mass, but don't fret! It will liquify at about 78˚F.

This spring, let’s get ready to ROUGHLES!! Our newest innovation yet – Roughles nail lacquers come in four fun springtime shades: purple (“I’m Stucco On You”), pink (“Rock the Look”), turquoise (“On What Grounds?”) and yellow (“Sand in My Shoe”). But these aren’t just any pastel polishes! Roughles go on like regular polish, but dry to a speckled, textured finish. We recommend you skip the top coat to keep your mani in its original matte state, but if gloss is the name of your game, feel free lay down a clear coat!

We love homemade pressies! A personalized touch makes gift giving that much more special. Although, great as the handmade gift may be, sometimes we get busy (I mean, there are Holiday parties, parades, potlucks and pressie swaps almost bi-weekly these days) or stuck in a creative rut (you can exhaust your right brain on holiday nail art choices alone, never mind personalized presents for all your family and friends!) The good news is, the solution to "giving DIY" while both saving time and cashing in on someone else's creativity is just a few clicks (and your credit card information) away! If you haven't already, say hello to: Etsy.com
