Magnetic Pretty

9 Apr

Over the weekend, I was perusing Sephora with none other than my right hand fashion woman (Chelsea) because I had a gift card to spend there.  We stumbled upon this AWESOME nail polish that I’d never seen before.  I’d heard of it but wasn’t exactly sure what it was.  We were testing it out and when we realized how easy it was to use, I was instantly hooked.  It’s a great way of giving yourself a quick manicure that looks like you spent lots of time perfecting.  It’s kind of expensive at about $18 a bottle but I figure there has to be at least 25 coats in the bottle.  They have about 7-10 different colors in the Nails Inc brand that I bought (I got turquoise) but I’m sure there are other brands that will start coming out with this for cheaper.  You paint the coat on your nails, which I only needed one, and then flip the lid of the bottle over to hover over the freshly painted nail.  The magnet pull the paint in different directions to give the polish the fun texture.

I’m not the best at manicuring myself but you can see more what it looks like here.

In the sun, it gets even a little brighter.  You can also hold the magnet over the nails for as short or long as you want creating different definitions in the lines.

The bottle that I got and love.

I hope everyone had a GREAT Easter weekend!  I spent lots of time with family, baking and with the horses – I know all of this is shocking, right? 🙂

Sparkle skins for your nails!

13 Mar

While I was in Tahoe, Emily was showing me her awesome gold sparkled nails and I just loved them.  I try to paint my nails but with horse back riding, playing my guitar, and other hobbies not conducive to cute nails, I have a hard time keeping any sort of color on them.  She has shown me what can work for me though and I just love how practical they are.

Sally Hansen Salon Effects come in the above packaging and are supposedly only one manicure but I got a full stretched manicure out of only one set of stickers (box comes with two).  They are very easy to apply and they really latch onto the nail lasting through all the wear and tear.  I chose the vibrant sparkles since we were heading to another monster truck show 🙂  There are probably about 20-30 different varieties of patterns to chose from though, including solid colors.

Here’s mine and Em’s gold nails.  Emily suggests that you put a clear coat of nail polish on after you have applied the nail skins to really hold it on.  I keep forgetting to put that on but mine have still been going strong!  These are a great way to feel feminine even for the most active girls.  I can’t wait to try all of the other colors.  I got mine at CVS and I’m sure you can also find them at Target’s and other drug stores for about $10 a pack.
