10 days with Jessica

“Colour is a personal style, it defines who you are” -Jessica Vartoughian

Never truer words have been spoken when it comes to your nail polish. Jessica Vartoughian, known as “The First Lady of Nails”, redefined the overall way we look at the structure of our nails. That’s when she found her true calling and discovered a regimen for nails made with the individual in mind. That’s right, when you visit one of her many successful salons her her manicurists , called nail cultivists, will help you get the perfect regimen just for you. Opening the first ever Nails Only Salon in 1969, Jessica educated herself on the anatomy of the nail saying that just like the skin and hair, it must be maintained. To this day she is always coming up with the newest and best thing to make sure that all of us can have beautiful nails, the natural way.

Out of all of Jessica’s lines and of all the beautiful colors, I had the pleasure of trying the new Phenom line. Alot like a gel polish, Phenom is a complete 10 day chip free manicure in just 3 easy steps. But the catch is you do not need a UV light like your normal gel polishes. Simply apply the whole system of base, color, and top coat. Then let the top coat dry in natural lighting & ten minutes later, beautiful gel shine! The color will dry faster or slower depending on what kind of lighting you happen to be in. Ex. sunlight will be faster than the light in your bathroom but never more than 10 minutes. Lately I have found that my nails would get to a certain length then just break off but with the Phenom I have achieved my goal of having long beautiful nails with no chipping. The colors I was gifted are three of the most perfect colors. They are incredibly vibrant and yes it has lasted me ten days. No matter where I was, the nail polish lasted with no knicks and my manicure looks brand new everyday.

Beauty at its best

I really wish I was in New York this week to be a part of history in the making. Modeling for Carrie Hammer’s “Role Models not Runway Models” is 30 year old actress Jamie Brewer, the first model in New York Fashion history to walk the runway with down’s syndrome.

Carrie chose Jamie, out of thousands of applicants, to walk the runway. Her campaign “Role Models not Runway Models” has real women with real top of the line jobs showcasing her fashions. Jamie is a real role model. Active in the Down Syndrome community, Jamie is the youngest person with this condition to be elected president of the ARC of Fort Bend Chapter. She is not afraid to show the world just who she is and I feel others can look up to her.

I like writing about real things and Jamie is a true to life woman who has overcome her fears. She doesn’t let anything hold her back from following her dream. You and I shouldn’t either. She shows us that everyone is beautiful because its how you define yourself not how others define you. Jamie is a definite beauty and a real role model for all women. Great job Jamie! 🙂
