My Nails have a new Best Friend!

I know alot of women share in my frustration of taking the time to paint your nails in a fun shade only to have it chip the next day as soon as you have a shower.

Also, I can't afford to get manicures all the time and fake nails look great, but become annoying and destroy my nails.

whats a girl to do?!

I have found the answer and the answer is Incoco Dry Nail Applique in French Manicure.

Incoco is dry nail enamel which comes in a package that includes a nail file, cuticle pusher, nail polish remover, and enough dry nail enamel to do your nails 2 times.

Incoco Dry Nail Applique are a very thin sticker for your nails, you carefully peel them off the packaging and then simply line them up on your nail and stick them down. Because they are actual nail polish and not just a white sticker, they stick to your nails and look like a perfect white tip. The work is done for you. Eazy Peazy Lemon Squeezy!

After you apply the tip, carefully file the excess off using even strokes in the same direction and Voila! A perfect french manicure! I then apply Revlon No Chip Top Coat (which I'm convinced is the best top coat on the market) and I'm finished. So easy! It may take you a few tries to get the filing off part down, but thats the only tricky part in the whole application.

The best part: they have lasted over two weeks without chipping! Seriously! I have been wearing the ones I have on now for over two weeks and they havent chipped. It's like witnessing a little nail miracle.

I am recommending this product to everyone I know. And because they stay on for so long without chipping when you finally remove them with nail polish remover your nails are twice as long and healthier!

The only down side is that they are hard to find. The only place I have found them sold is at Zellers.

This product is perfection!

Have a Pretty Day!


Face Cream worth the Splurge for the Surge!

I am definitly a girl on a budget right now but there are some things this girl can just not skimp on. Face cream, I have decided, is one of those things.

I normally buy face creams for around $20.00 but I decided to indulge a little and go with a new Clinique face cream this time because I have always been a huge Clinique fan. You really can't go wrong with their products which never irritate my somewhat sensitive skin.

I picked up Clinique Moisture Surge extended thirst relief for just under $50.00 (still not too bad in the price department, but a little more then I normally spend) and WOW WOW WOW! I am so glad I did. This product is WONDERFUL! It feels like silk and Moisture Surge is right!! This cream is super hydrating. I just want to jump in a huge vat of it and soak my entire body.

Recommend! Especially if you have dry skin. You wont be disappointed.

I am a huge fan of having tanned skin but I refuse to use a tanning bed. My tan of choice: The Spray Tan. I go to a wonderful Tanning Salon called Banana Joes where I recieve the air brush tan.

I do not recommend doing the old school "Mystic Tan" where you stand in a booth and jets shoot out the spray. You will probably end up orange, and your tan will not be even (Think Ross Geller from that episode of Friends). It is always best to do the air brush tan where someone sprays you. Your tan will look natural and even. I get tons of compliments on how nicely tanned I am after i get a spray tan.

Unfortunately I can't afford to go for a spray all the time so to prolong my glorious tan I count on my Lancaster Sun Self Tanning Face & Body Essential Bronze Milk SPF 6. I have a very love hate relationship with self tanners. I LOVE the bronze glow but I HATE the way they smell.... Kindof like eggs or something as equally disgusting.

Lancaster however, has a completely different smell from other self-tanners, it actually smells good. Not to mention, it gives my skin the exact amount of colour I want! You can actually notice a difference after just one use. It's perfection! Bonus, one bottle lasts a long time so it's worth the price point.
