The Best Nail Colors for 2020
It is that time of the year again where you take out all your nail polishes. You throw away the ones gone bad, mark some as ugly and ask yourself “What was I thinking?” and look at that one nail colour you wore all year with the guilt of spending money on other colours. But this is a new year and the perfect time for a new you. When we say the new you, we’re not asking YOU to change but we think it might be time to add some new colours to your collection now.
This is officially the season of new manicures and pedicures and its time to find out the best nail colours that fit you and your personality in 2020. With so many nail colours, brands, and finishes out there, it’s easy to get confused. Don’t worry, we’ve already done the hard work for you and have found some of the best nail colours to wear in 2020.
Here are our favourites:
JINsoon – Shade Milieu
Nudes are a popular choice when it comes to nail polish. But this year, how about changing it up a little. This shade is a smoky grey with just a hint of shimmer and is different from your everyday nude or pastel pink. If you are a light nail polish lover, then this will be a good colour for you if you try it instead of the browns and pinks.
Sally Hansen – Shade Sun-tastic
Many people think nude shades are for the spring but they look good in summers too. This is another nude we love. It is a pastel yellow shade that is every summer. You can also pair this colour with others perfectly such as neon colours that are very in right now.
Essie – Shade Souq Up the Sun
Essie has some amazing shades and you can find a nail colour for every occasion. Even though they are well-loved for their pastels, we took a look at their whole range for the summer and think this colour is perfect for the summer. It brings with it a little sunshine. It is high shine, long-lasting and a gel nail polish.

Base Coat – Shade Capricorn
Not everyone loves the bright shades. Some people just want muted colours that will work with several outfits. If you are similar, then look no further. The Capricorn shade from the base coat is a rich stone brown that will look chic with every outfit you put on. This earthy tone fits looks amazing on several skin tones making it a versatile colour. Base coat polishes are vegan and toxin-free.

Zoya – Shade Dacey
This colour is for those looking for something bright and fun and away from the common pinks and browns. This hot pink shade by Zoya gives amazing colour off and is free of toxic chemicals so you can paint it on the little one's hands as well.

Base Coat – Shade Pisces
Base coat has a whole line dedicated to zodiac signs. After Capricorn, we instantly fell in love with their shade Pisces. Pisces is a deep turquoise and has a vegan formula. It is also free of toxic chemicals. So if you were looking for a nail polish that is vegan, bright and fun.
OPI – Shade Verde Nice to Meet You
We couldn’t finish this list without adding one from the well-loved and popular brand Verde Nice to Meet You. This shade is from their collection Mexico City Infinite Shine collection. This is another turquoise, however, not as bright as the one from Base Coat. This is another gel polish but is easy to remove without having to soak your nails in acetone.
Whether you’re doing it yourself or you are getting them at the salon, these are the perfect nail colours for the year 2020. From nudes to brights, there is a little something for everyone. Let us know if you want to see more colours than you can use this summer.
Still my favorite Magnetic lashes
Lately I can’t stop reaching for my #MoxieLash - Bossy lash[products]#[FiveStars] because of how flirty and pretty they are 😍 you get a ton of uses with these and the magnetic liner isn’t going anywhere! These last me for a good 6 hours straight even outdoors with zero movement or budging! This is their 5 magnet lash but they have new 10 magnet lashes that literally are rock solid on the eyes! A little tip I learned while using these is you can use whatever regular eyeliner you use to create your wing shape and then just use the magnetic liner in place of lash glue. Also, you can apply while it’s still a little wet for superior hold! They don’t advertise it that way however I noticed they stick nicer when applied with the liner still being a little wet.

THIS DERMATOLOGISTS FAVORITE NEW CLEANSER
Cleansers are an essential step in everyone’s skincare routine, but it can be difficult to find the right one for your skin. The new Aveeno Calm + Restore nourishing oat cleanser has been my new go-to daily cleanser and I love it. ❤️🙌 Aveeno has always been a brand to create formulations that target dry and sensitive skin and this cleanser is no different. This cleanser is great for people all skin types but would likely benefit dry or combination skin most. The incorporated oat complex helps restore build the skin’s moisture barrier and soothe itchy skin. There is no stripping effect with this cleanser, which is something too always look for with your cleanser. Other pros about this product are its fragrance free (limiting any irritant reactions) as well as great pricing. On amazon, you can find a bottle for under $10.‼️‼️ TRUTH: If you are trying to fight acne or blackheads I recommend against this cleanser and try finding something with salicylic acid. Have you tried the new Aveeno cleanser? Let me know your thoughts in the comments! ⤵️
Retinol use for beginners from an Esthetician!
If you’re ever wondering how to start using retinol, this is for you! I want to start off by saying that if you’re interested in using retinol you must wear sunscreen daily. If you know you’re never going to wear it PLEASE do not use retinol. With that being said, let’s start off by explaining what retinol is and what it does for you! Retinol is Vitamin A! There are many types of retinol, like retinoids, retinol esters, etc. These are all derivatives of Vitamin A, and are more gentle and less potent versions of pure retinol. Retinol helps speed up our cell turn over rate in our skin. What that means, is that it will help you shed your dead skin cells faster to reveal new skin that’s brighter, smoother and healthier! As we get older, our “cell turnover rate” (CTR) slows down. So we use products like retinol to keep speeding it up so we can stay younger longer! Most people know retinol for treating fine lines and wrinkles, but it’s actually incredible for treating acne and acne scars! This is what I personally use it for. Retinol is strong and acts as an exfoliant so you must be careful with what products you’re using along with it in your regimen. Don’t layer or mix Vit C and retinol as they don’t like each other! Retinol should ONLY be applied at nighttime never in the morning. It makes you photosensitive which is a term to describe sensitivity to the sun. Most people experience some purging in acne, peeling/dryness, redness/irritation, and burning sensations when using a high dose of retinol without buffering it properly. If you use my buffering method properly you will not experience that at all! Now that you understand what you’re putting on your skin, I will explain how to use it! You shouldn’t start retinol by just applying it straight onto your skin without ever using it before. Your skin has to adjust to this new product and should be incorporated gently and slowly. It takes a month for your skin to adjust. You want to buffer your retinol with a gentle moisturizer. Nothing with actives like exfoliants (AHAs or BHAs)! Retinol goes after serums and before moisturizer in your routine! Week 1: use your retinol maximum 2x weekly. Start with one pea size amount of retinol and buffer it with 3 parts of moisturizer! Mix & apply to your skin! Week 2: use your retinol maximum 3x weekly. You’re going to do equal parts retinol and moisturizer. 2 parts retinol and 2 parts moisturizer. Mix & apply to your skin! Week 3: use your retinol maximum 3x weekly. Use 3 parts retinol (equal to a pea size) and 1 part moisturizer. Mix & apply to your skin! Week 4: use your retinol maximum 4x weekly. Apply a pea size amount of retinol directly onto your skin! Then apply your moisturizer directly on top of the retinol! If your skin cant handle retinol alone then stick to the buffering method forever! It will be just as effective as applying it alone! This method will minimize purging and keep your barrier healthy! Hope this helped! ❤️COSRX - Propolis Light Cream
Glass skin? Uhm YES!
This mist is so fun to use. You can use it with makeup or on its own! I tend to use it on bare skin for a natural glowing look. It is a fine mist that moisturizes, nourishes and helps fight damage. It also helps fight irritation and calm the skin. I will be posting a video a little later of me using this before makeup application! Makeup glides on after using this to prep the skin. What’s in it: ￼peach extract ￼Hyaluronic acid ￼Reishi mushroom ￼lotus extract ￼cica ￼ceramides ￼much more! This product has so many awesome ingredients, it’s hard not to love! PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Veil Mist I will give this a 5/5! Pros: ￼can be used to refresh makeup ￼can be used on bare skin ￼hydrating ￼calming ￼gives a wonderful dewy glow ￼smells nice Cons: ￼$30 for a mist is a bit pricey but this mist does so much in return 💞 let me know a mist you love!
