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!

What do you think of Jaded by Sally Hansen? Have you tried any of the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes yet? What color are you rocking on your nails today?

Just Another MANICure Monday: Matte me Crazy with Glitter

MANICure-Monday-Badge-e1353864285351

I hope that everyone had an awesome weekend. As for me, I didn’t get into much; the highlight of my weekend was Saturday, I spent the majority of the day relaxing in my PJ’s…feel free to judge as you please. LOL 

So with all the free time lounging around I brainstormed a few mani ideas and decided to try out my NYC matte top coat again. This week’s mani is totally inspired by Mimi of Lipgloss and Binky, who also co-host Just Another MANICure Monday with Effie Lynn of LA Lynns. If you’re wondering what Just Another MANICure Monday is, I posted about it here and here. I’ve been having so much fun participating! Well, a few weeks ago Mimi used the NYC matte top coat over polished nails with glitter for her mani…the results were too cute and I decided to give it a try.

I’m not sure if you see the way the glitter just pops against the matte polish but I love the effects, even the hubs thought is was pretty cool. So this look is definitely one I will be keeping in the rotation. And if you still haven’t tried matte polish then you should; the NYC brand top coat is less than $3 bucks and worth every penny. Mimi is the hostess for Just Another MANICure Monday this week, so head over to her blog for more nail inspiration!

Have you tried anything new on your nails lately?
