« Beauty Review: Jamberry Nails »

i'd actually never heard of Jamberry Nail Shields until a good friend of mine started selling them. It works much like my Mary Kay business and she sent me a few samples to use, photograph and show friends. While i absolutely love nail polish, i hate painting my fingernails because it chips by the end of the day. i admit i was very skeptical about these but i decided to give em a shot anyhow.

Jamberry Nail Shields



Jamberry comes in a variety of colors and patterns and are fairly easy to apply. All you need is nail polish remover, an emery board and a blow dryer. Swipe the nail with the polish remover, scuff up the nail a bit, blast the nail shields with warm air and then form it to the nail. Pretty easy. Both applications that i put on [and one i did on my daughter's toes], lasted a week [and probably would have lasted longer if my OCD wouldn't have said, "Hey! Pick on those."] They held up through daily hand washings, showers and dish washings with no problems whatsoever and looked good doing it! i was honestly surprised at the durability and it certainly beats painting your nails, only to have chips in a matter of hours. i would definitely recommend these. ♥

« Beauty Review - Depi Silk »

Is there any woman on the planet that isn't looking for an easy, bump free alternative to shaving every 2 days? Behold: Depil Silk. It claims to be so easy as a spray and wipe away! It was only $2.50 at Big Lots so i figured i'd give it a try.



Initially, it took a Herculean effort to even get this crap to spray. After nearly 5 minutes of messing with the pump, it finally shot a stream of this nasty smelling gunk out. And they are right! It's just as easy as spray and wipe away! Only, it doesn't take the hair with it and you end up spending another 5 minutes using a razor to shave your legs. i'm pretty sure this junk didn't even remove a single, solitary hair off my leg and i don't have thick, coarse hair at all. It also left my house smelling like a stink pit! If i've ever been upset about wasting $2.50, it's definitely on this crap!

Zoya: Areetha

My newest collection obsession is Zoya nail polish. i took a chance on a promotion and ended up totally loving the product. Since then, i have taken part in several more promotions and my collection has grown quite a lot. Zoya Nail Polish is also a nail polish free of toluene, formaldehyde, DBP (phthalates) and camphor.

Zoya




Zoya Nail Polish in Areetha can be best described as: A medium blue-toned purple with a reflective, silvery metallic frost finish. An icy-cool look like the winter sky at midnight.



With purple being my favorite color, of course i adore this shade. It's eye catching, flashy and totally gorgeous. A good color choice for spring or summer. The above photo was with two quick coats. ♥
