Happy 2017 ladies! First and foremost I want to thank you girls all SO much from the bottom of my heart. 2016 was such a great year but without you girls The Honeybee wouldn’t be what it is! I am so thankful for the constant love and support you girls have shown. From my newer “frollowers” (that’s Friends+ Followers 😉 to my girls that have been following The Honeybee for years….I appreciate Every. Single. One. of YOU! I’m so excited to see what 2017 has in store for us. I am also excited to introduce a couple new series for you girls. One of which that starts today… Beauty Talk Tuesdays . Every Tuesday will be dedicated to all things beauty. I’ll be sharing my makeup must haves, mini tutorials, hair products and tools and even supplements I take. Anything beauty related will be here for you girls on Tuesdays! You can also leave questions and requests for what you would love to see in the weeks to come as well! Today’s post is all about Nails! I’m sharing my top ten go to polishes, the supplements I swear by and some not so glamorous tips if your “dry heel struggle” is real like mine!
A lot of you ask about my nails and if they are real. They are but I do use gel polish on top. I FINALLY got on the gel bandwagon last year and there is no turning back. Especially as a mom it’s just the only way to go. I swear my regular manicures would last at most 5 days and with gel they last SO much longer. I get them done about every 2-3 weeks and it’s been a life saver. The only down side is the UV exposure. Some salons have their own gloves but my favorite nail spot does not so I legit bring my own UV Shield Gloves with me. The ladies tell me that with “their machine” you don’t get the exposure so you don’t need them butttt I bring them anyway. I feel like a women’s hands and neck are first to tell a women’s age so I’m trying to be a preventative as possible.
Again wearing Tiramisu for Two… It’s the PERFECT neutral and i’m slightly obsessed with this color!

My go to Multi-Vitamin…
I’ve also received tons of questions about what supplements and multivitamins I take and This One is the only one I take. I have been using MAXI HAIR since before Ava was born! It was recommended to me by a friend and it really makes your hair and nails grow like crazy. I stopped taking it during each pregnancy (because I was using THIS PRENATAL) then I switched back to my Maxi Hair and highly recommend it. If you take it daily, you will definitely notice a difference in your hair and nails.
and lastly something not so glamorous to talk about butttt the Dry Heel struggle is real! I totally suffer from it (especially in the Winter) so these are the products I use.
This Callus Remover Gel is what they use in the nail salon (that you pay $5 for each time…and the whole bottle is only $7!) You can totally use this at home with a pumice stone and save yourself a lot of cash.
Okay so I hope you girls are digging this new series! I already have a post lined up for next week but each week feel free to leave your suggestions, questions and comments for the next post and I’ll try to tackle them!
