⋆ About Me ⋆

Hi! Nice to meet you ツ If you're looking for YouTube, links, coupon codes, etc swipe ⇨

I'm a cosmetologist; I focused on hair and skincare during my schooling.
Skincare is my real passion, and recently I've been having a blast venturing into the world of DIY nails and showing you everything as I go.

I talk about ALL things beauty here on Instagram and give you my honest reviews on just about everything I post.
I love finding dupes whenever I can, and make sure to tell you when I find a good one. If you know of some good ones, let me know so I can try them out!

01

Beetles Glitter Polygel Kit

This kit has literally everything you need to do your own polygel nails at home (including a lamp!) + rhinestones, glitter, and more!


02

MelodySusie Portable E-File

This nail drill is outstanding!
I didn't want to recommend the one I was using before because it was really sub par.
This one is a beautiful machine and I'd very highly recommend it whether you're a beginner or a pro.


03

Apres Gel-X Nail System (Full Kit)

This is a new and very unique nail system...
You get full cover nails that are made from gel instead of plastic! This is the full kit that includes the entire Apres system.
If you're interested in only the full cover tips/nails, I've linked that as well, separately.


04

Apres Gel-X Nails

These are full cover tips/nails that are made from gel instead of plastic! 🙌
Give yourself a quick and easy gel set at home with these!


05

Burano Glow in the Dark Polygel Kit

This kit has everything you need (MINUS a nail lamp) to create cool, glow in the dark nails.
It comes with sculpting forms, dual forms, AND full cover tips so you have any option available to use!


06

Erno Laszlo Dual Phase Vitamin C Peel

Sugar scrubs are one of the very few physical exfoliants that I can stand behind.
They're water soluble, so they don't dig as aggressively into skin as nut & seed scrubs do.
This scrub is my favorite (physical) that I've used so far!
It uses sugar to physically exfoliate and lactic acid to chemically exfoliate.
Nothing has EVER made my skin feel softer & smoother, and the skincare products that I use after really sink in and are able to do their job tenfold.


07

Beetles 84 watt Nail Lamp

I literally searched for months on Amazon for the best deal on a good nail lamp, and I think I found it!

This lamp is 84 watts LED/UV with red light for anti-aging.

This lamp has been excellent, it cures everything!


08

Gelish Clear Polygel

The ones who started it all with polygel! 🙌🏻


09

DoDo Lashes

Gorgeous, reusable, affordable lashes with tons of beautiful styles!
You can use code "NovaKnowsBeauty" at checkout for 5% off 🙌


10

Young Nails Glitter (Rock Star)

This is such a stunning, medium sized, holographic glitter and it goes with ANY color or style!
(If it's listed as out of stock, I'll have one similar to Rock Star linked)


11

Gershion Liquid Polygel Kit

I've been loving this stuff!
You can do overlays so simply, or go all out with a full sculpt.


12

Face Scrubber

This thing.... wow!
Talk about really getting the gunk out of your pores!
AND this device tremendously helps with skincare absorption.
If you haven't checked out the video on my IG, go do that if you'd like to see a little more about how it works.
⋆ No, it doesn't hurt in any way ⋆


13

Makartt Rhinestone Kit

All the bling + glue included


14

Metal & Mirror Nail Design Powders

You can create beautiful nail art with these!


15

Modelones Polygel

I'm obsessed with polygel, it's a miracle!
My favorite brand is Modelones which I used for this set in the shades:
- Light Pink
- White
- Clear
(There are several kit options & other products from Modelones that you can find through the link)


16

9D Cat Eye Gel Polish

This polish is really cool and so fun to play with!

If you don't know, you use a magnet with this type of polish to create different designs.
You can check out a video of it in use on my IG.

The link below is to the exact kit (currently $8.99) that I've used in the photo and includes:
- black gel polish
- pink toned cat eye polish
- magnet

There is another kit available in blue and one that includes both shades + base coat, regular top coat, and a matte top coat ($21.99).
You can find all of them in the "Shop my IG" link on the "About Me" page.

My Lights

I've been asked multiple times about the lights that I use...
I found a killer deal on Amazon and am more than happy to share!
At the time of me posting this, the price is $59.99 for the 2 lights that include everything shown.
Soft box lights set of 2:
