The Magic of Flake Off by GelMoment!

Our easy non toxic removal options are one of the things I fell in love with first when introduced to GelMoment! I know that years of having the salon remove my polish with a dremel has greatly affected the thinning of my nail bed - I am hopeful that changing to this safe removal system will help to restore my natural nail health over time!

Flake Off is one of two options for safe removal process - 5 Free and Acetone Free!  - it is memorizing to watch it work its magic!  

It is so cool to watch it gently bubble and lift it up!

A little video of the Flake off in action so you can see how easy it just lifts op and you push it off! If you have really dry nail beds or several layers of polish on it may take a repeat application - do not SCRAP your nail bed just gently push the polish off.


Be As Bold as your GelMoment Nail Polish!

Gentle Removal

While the GelMoment polish can last for up to 14 days depending on your nail bed - eventually you are gonna want to remove it to try a new colour! One of the benefits of the GelMoment DIY from home system is GENTLE REMOVAL options! .

We have two options for customers depending on preference - today we are gonna focus on the Gentle Remover Pads. Come back tomorrow to see the Magic that is Flake off! 

The Gentle Remover pads come in a box of either 50 for $8.75 or 100 $15

All you need to do with these ones is gently buff the shine off your polish,  tear open a package pop your finger inside so that the pad is on top of the nail bed and than wrap it up on itself using the adhesive strip - repeat for all 5 fingers! Wait 5-10 minutes and than gently push the polish off with the flat end of a cuticle pusher. Repeat with the other hand - you can do both hands at once if your skilled but I prefer to have a hand free to scroll social media while I am removing!

If you are finding the pouches hard to keep on your fingers we also have handy clips to help add additional pressure of the pad onto the nail bed and hold the pouches in place! 

A little video of the process for the visual learners!

Weather outside is Frightful but my Nails are so delightful


When the Weather Outside is Frightful but my Holiday manicure is so delightful!
A huge shout to Guinevere at The Sand Bar for help with my holiday manicure this year - a fellow GelMoment sister now featuring the line in her home based nail salon here in London Ontario! This nail art was definitely a labour of love for Guinevere as it is so finely detailed it was not one of those quick '2 minute nail art' you pay big bucks for at the salon - it was carefully hand painted with so much attention to detail - I do not want to ever have to take it off!!!!

GelMoment gel polish used to create this look:
  • Scarlet Slippers
  • Jade's Wish
  • Lovee Dovee
  • Chandelier
  • Mocha Madness
  • Choco-La-La
  • On Taupe
  • Red Stiletto
  • Raven's Kiss
  • I Pink You!
  • Clearly Frisky
  • Matte'R Effect top coat
  • Southern Lights-Chrome powder
  • 2 medium green gems
  • 2 small green gems
  • GelMoment brush set.
I seriously can not stop looking at these!!!! How stinking cure is the little Christmas Unicorn? If you have a moment pop over to her Facebook page and give her some love cause seriously she is so talented and so giving of herself to others!!!!

Quick and Simple Christmas card!

 Designing today for the Scrapbook Nerds & Friends over on Facebook and I think I found a new addiction - Doodlebug Designs!

The whole line of everything is just ADORABLE!!!!

I loved the little Mrs. Claus and paired her with some shape sprinkles and the Concord and 9th Seasons of Cheer sentiment dies! Also got to play with my Pink Fresh Studios Slim line Stitched Rectangles Essentials dies

The Slim line stitched rectangle dies are just so fun - a staple for every crafter!
Pinkfresh Studio - Essentials - Slim Stitched Rectangles Die Set
The Concord and 9th Seasons of Cheers is going to make a lot of fun cards!

Together they helped to make a quick and easy yet, in my humble opinion, a totally adorable holiday card in less than 5 minutes!

Happy Stampin'

What is Yerba Mate?

So anyone who knows me - when I come across an ingredient I do not recognize I google it just to make sure it is indeed gluten free or good for my auto immune issues. 

So recently I have been working to sample the GelMoment tea line - I started with the 'Take a Moment' which has an ingredient list of:

Ingredients: Spearmint, Moringa, Yerba Mate, Damiana Cinnamon, Gotu Kola, Ashwagandha, Lavender, Hibiscus, Juniper
Berries, Ginger, Slippery Elm, Tomato Flakes.


So introducing Yerba Mate a new to me ingredient  .... this is what is used in the GelMoment Tea line as an alternative to normal caffeine source to provide a healthier 'kick' to your morning without the negative side effects caffeine often has associated with it! 

Check out the 8 amazing ways that this supports health and wellness - all the science goodness for each is over at Healthline but here is a summary:

1. Rich in Antioxidants and Nutrients

2. Can Boost Energy and Improve Mental Focus

3. May Enhance Physical Performance

4. May Protect Against Infections

5. May Help You Lose Weight and Belly Fat

6. May Boost Your Immune System

7. Lowers Blood Sugar Levels

8. May Lower Your Risk of Heart Disease

 So not only does this tea taste AMAZING butt the ingredients are carefully chosen to  help support health and wellness in so many ways from improved hair, skin and nails but also over all well being! 

Here is the line of teas from GelMoment

What's your favorite tea?

Take Care
