Afternoon Manicure with NUANCE Salma Hayek (OOTD)

When my friend Yolanda of Sassy Mama in L.A. invited me to get a free manicure I didn’t hesitate to reply YES! Then I found out it would be courtesy of CVS and NUANCE Salma Hayek. I was really in! Did you even know that the gorgeous actress Salma Hayek had a beauty line at CVS? She sure does and you’ll find cosmetics, skin care, hair care, and body products.

Until this point, I’ve only tried her shampoo and conditioner, but never the cosmetics. I was very curious to see how the nail lacquer would stand up to my blogging life. So, I headed out to the Bellacures salon in Beverly Hills for a manicure…and it was glorious. We even had yummy snacks and drinks courtesy of Hansens Natural. 

There were quite a few colors to choose from, but decided that dark would be the way to go. I chose Black Dahlia and am in awe of how this nail lacquer is holding up on me five days later. I’m normally really rough on my hands too. No chipping or dulling. Love it! Oh…and it’s only $5.99.  And for you nail junkies it contains natural botanical extracts, is toluene free, Formaldehyde free, and DBP free.

I decided to throw in an outfit post while I was at it. This was a beautiful day in L.A. and didn’t want to dress too warm. I throw on this old silk moto-type jacket from Macy’s, my favorite peplum top from Forever 21, Torrid Denim skinnies, and these old leopard print flats by Jessica Simpson. It was a very casual outfit for a fun and relaxing day!
