Manicure Monday: Feeling A Little Jaded

It’s Monday…already!!! And I swear it feels like the weekend just flew by! Isn’t that always the case…weekdays move at a snail’s pace but the weekend ends before you can blink.

Jaded

We didn’t do a whole lot, which I enjoyed. Sometimes it feels good just not to have anything pressing to do. I did get a chance to squeeze in a workout with my oldest son and two movie nights with the fam. And late last night I managed to squeeze in a little manicure me time….

I decided to try out one of the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes from my most recent Influenster Vox Box. I went with my favorite of the three…Jaded. This shade is gorgeous! Initially I was slightly disappointed because it went on so sheer but after the second coat, I was more than pleased with the color payoff.

The Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes offer 7 benefits of a salon manicure in 1 bottle:

  • Base Coat
  • Strengthener
  • Growth Treatment
  • Color
  • Top Coat
  • Chip Resistant
  • Gel Shine

It’s been a while since I’ve polished my nails and I’m really loving this shade. I’ve used the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes before and the formula is great. And if you haven’t tried them, I highly recommend that you do…the wide flat brush is amazing!

MANICure Monday: Black Friday Edition

MANICure-Monday-Badge-e1353864285351

Whew! It’s December already and the countdown to Christmas and New Year’s is in full effect! Can you believe it?

Well, this week’s mani is inspired by Black Friday, which I’m aware was last week…better late than never, right? I had every intention of polishing my nails on Thanksgiving eve but totally lost all track of time. I ended up putting off until I just didn’t feel like doing it at all. *sigh* But despite my busted nails I did enjoy myself. I had an awesome Thanksgiving break! It’s always a good time when you spend it with family and friends.

Midweek Mani: Full Steam Ahead

This past weekend was bitter-sweet and extremely busy…I’ve been spending the past few days playing catch up just to do it all over again this weekend. School will be starting next week and yes I’m crunk about it but don’t tell my boys. With all the craziness going on I needed to take a moment to breathe. And what better way to relax than with a mani…

This week’s mani is special because the polish was gifted to my by a fellow vlogger, SweetOne1299. A few weeks ago, she posted pictures on Instagram of several great clearance cosmetic finds she scored from her local Walgreens. So I ran to my local Walgreens, within minutes of her post (it’s just that serious) and found the nothing! But SweetOne1299 came to my rescue…lol! She sent me a box of goodies! All I can say is her name definitely fits her…

I’m not quite sure why this pastel purple shade is named Full Steam Ahead but I love it. What do you think? What’s your favorite shade by Essie? Have you found any great cosmetics on clearance lately?

 

 

 

 

 

Manicure Monday: So Cute Diamond Gold

It’s been a while since I did a Manicure Monday post…I’ve been so busy with my boys this summer that polishing my nails has been the last thing on my mind. And not to mention the past few times I’ve polished my nails they seem to chip on the first day and y’all know how annoying that can be. I’m not really sure what the deal is with that, so I’m on the hunt for a new base coat and top coat…suggestions please!!!

Today’s mani is pretty simple…I used an old fav, So Cute by Sheswai Lacquer. I’ve had this polish for quite some time, it’s a beautiful peach shade and with staying power. *crosses fingers for chip free nails*
