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.

Favorite Holiday Home and Fashion Trinkets!

16 Nov

Since I will be out of town the week of Thanksgiving, I won’t be at home getting into the holiday cheer.  This is fine by me but since Christmas is one of my favorite holidays, I thought I’d bust out some of my holiday favorites sooner than later.

Red candles!  I’ve replaced my orange and yellow candles now with deep reds for the holidays.

A new green jewelry stand from Forever 21!

It’s perfect for all my different jewelry and I love the matted turquoise!

Red lipstick.  I love red and dark orange hued lipstick.  This one is a Revlon (#018 “Fire”) that I love.  Oh and I also love warm beanies, another plus of winter.

Chunky jewelry!  I love this new Forever 21 necklace (worn above).  I love the dark green beads and gold feathers.

And last but not least… fun nail polish!  Here’s three of my favorites.
(Turquoise – Nordstrom’s $5, Sparkle – Walgreen’s $0.99!, OPI – Beauty Source – on sale for $1.99)  Nail polish is a fun and inexpensive way to add color and/or sparkle to anything.  I love layering sparkles on top of a solid color, too.

These are just small, easy ways to add a little more holiday cheer to your every day life!
