10 years ago, the landscape of my life was quite different. I lived in an apartment in New York. I was a copywriter for Ralph Lauren. I was only 26 (about to turn 27, one of the best years of my life). And I had just started The Beauty of Life.

I have a confession to make. I don't typically use hairspray. There, I said it. I just really hate the crunchiness it creates and the fact that usually I don't even feel like it holds my style in place. But you know what? Drybar Money Maker Flexible Hold Hairspray has changed all that.

So, I don't know about you, but when I'm stressed out? My skin goes C R A Z Y. We're talking breakouts everywhere, undue redness, all sorts of general messiness I just CANNOT get behind. So when I discovered the Peter Thomas Roth Clinical Skin Care Max Complexion Correction Pads, I was immediately on board to put them through some rigorous testing.

Another year is coming to a close. And, as I referenced in my Throwback Thursday post last week, many people are pretty happy to say goodbye to 2016. I've absolutely loved this year, though -- and my manicures are just one reason why. This year, I incorporated old standbys and new favorites into my nail polish rotation. I discovered (and fell in love with) some new brands and also revisited some of the colors I've loved for years. You may notice that some of the months are a bit more sparse or even missing in my roundup this year -- I must admit that I had some moments of bare nails! Looking back at my favorite manicures has become a pastime here on The Beauty of Life (for proof, check out My 2013 in Nails, My 2014 in Nails, and, yes, My 2015 in Nails). Revisit my favorites of 2016 with me this week!
