A few weeks ago I had the awesome opportunity to visit the new Dermalogica concept store in Atlantic Station for media night.
For those not familiar, Dermalogica is an awesome line of skin care products that are primarily used by professional estheticians. The great part is you can also purchase these products for use at home.
The story of Dermalogica’s start is amazing. The founder of the company Jane Wurwand started the company as the International Dermal Institute (IDI) where she taught estheticians vital skills to be successful in the industry. Eventually her passion for proper skin care evolved into a full fledged skincare line. Talk about working your passion! How inspiring. I even got the chance to meet and chat with her at a private dinner after the event.

The Dermalogica concept space in Atlanta is primarily a learning space where skin care professionals in Atlanta can come and learn, however they also offer services to the public to include:
Face Mapping: This service is FREE of charge and allows a professional to analyze your skin from your forehead to collarbone identifying problem areas and offering product suggestions for treatment.
Skin Bar: If you have any questions or want to learn more about Dermalogica’s line of products the door is open! Come have a sit and chat with professionals about your skincare concerns and learn how to use the products. You can stay there as long as you like and ask all the questions you want…however there will be no drinks for you. Sorry!
BioActive Peel: BioActive Peel helps reduce acne, pigmentation and signs of premature aging by safely removing dull outer layers of skin and helping the skin underneath regenerate. Skin is left smoother, brighter, and softer than ever.
dermalogica microZone: Take 20 minutes out of your day to get your skin repaired with flash exfoliation, extractions and a moisture boost.
I’ve been faithfully using some of products I was given and I am smitten with them. I will be going in the next week to get my face mapped and get in on some of the services they offer and I’ll be sure to share the experience with you.
Are you using or have you ever used Dermalogica’s products? Do you love them? Do you have a skincare regimen?

I know. I’ve been slacking on getting my MANICure posts up but with all of the house painting around the house I haven’t really taken out the time to get my hands together. Hopefully moving forward I will make this more of a priority.
Anywhooooo. Alisha is pouring virtual wine and showing off mani’s. She’s hosting the link up this week.
I am always raving on the fact that I like Sinful Colors better than some of the higher dollar brand polishes and this color is one of the reasons why. I admit it needed a few more coats than an Essie but for the price I can do that.
I’m done with winter and in my head it is spring so that is why I went with this color. I love it.
Don’t you dare say a word about my cuticles. Not a word. These nails barely got painted.
The link up this week is over at Alisha’s. You have until Friday to get over there and show off your MANICure. Don’t be like me. Take the time out to pamper yourself. I tell you a shiny, pretty nail goes a long way!
This is the first link up of the new year and I promise stability and great things on Mondays in 2014. So make it your business to paint your nails on Sunday evenings while watching your shows and come link up with us on Mondays.
MANICure Monday is starting off the new year with a new hostess. I want to welcome Alisha from Coilylocks.com to the mix. She takes her nail art to another level and shares a love for nail art and polish like Efie and I do. She is going to be an awesome fit.
I’m hosting this week. Linky will be open until Friday!
Seeing that I have tons of polish that I haven’t even touched I am making it my business to try the colors that I haven’t tried before. If I don’t like them they will be given away. Sad to say the color I used this week will be the first casualty.
I used Finger Paint color “Whose Hue” and my question is Whose idea was it to make this color. I don’t like it. I suppose it could be that it doesn’t look well on my skin color. It is a purplish color with a tad bit of sparkle.
I couldn’t deal with the color by itself so I added a little metallic- Essie “Penny Talk” the gold did a little something but I don’t know how long this will last
Looked a little something like this:
Hope your digits came out better than mine. Let me see your MANICure!! Don’t forget to grab the link up button!
A few weeks ago I received an Influenster Vox Box that had the Kiss Gradation polishes in it. I love the look of the gradation polishes unfortunately I have never been able to recreate them successfully on my own so I was excited to give this product a try.
