Beauty Finds That Won't Break The Bank - Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish (New Product!)

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish

Color: Rosey Riviter (180) & Top Coat (100)

Approx. Price: $9.99 Each

I was really excited about this product when I saw it at the store.  I love to get my nails done, whether it's getting it done professionally, or giving myself an at-home manicure. I've had my share of gel manicures, and I usually start out being really happy with it, until the color starts to chip.  Then my nails turn really ugly, and I can't stop myself from picking at it. Before I can get myself to the nail salon, most of the gel are already off, and my nails are super fragile :(

When I saw this product on display at Walgreens, I decided to check it out.  It says, "No Light" or "Sans Lampe" all over the cap. It's a NO UV/LED gel nail polish that only requires the use of their miracle top coat.  It supposedly can last up to 14 days, and can be removed with your regular nail polish remover.  How can I walk away from that right?

I checked out their colors, and this rosy pink color caught my eyes.  I painted my nails last night, and it looks just like the color in the bottle.  I love it!  They have over 45 shades available, and I think they do have a special 2-bottle set available at certain stores, but I didn't see it at my local Walgreens.  There is no special instruction for this, it's just like regular nail polish.  Just make sure you buy the top coat along with your color(s).  The instruction said to apply two coats of nail polish, but I would actually suggest three, especially if the color is light and if you see it streaking a bit.  I would also try to let the nail polish dry in between each coat.  Definitely let the nails dry completely before using the top coat, otherwise it might smudge when you apply the top coat and ruin everything.  I think that's pretty much all that you need to pay attention to.  This is technically the first full day since I painted my nails, and so far so good.  I will definitely update this post to let you know how long my nail color lasted before it starts chipping.

Note: The top coat is definitely not as shiny as the professional gel nails, but it didn't really bother me that much. It's not the most perfect gel manicure that you can get, but for a d.i.y.'s not bad.

For the price and convenience of an at-home gel mani, I would give this product

Update on my nails:

Well, it's day 4!  My nail colors finally started to chip a little bit around the edges.  I haven't been babying them or I'm pretty satisfied with the result so far.

Oh So Cute! Disney Tsum Tsum Lip Smacker Lip Balm Collection

How many lip balms can anyone really use? - probably not that many, but how can you resist these cute Disney Tsum Tsum lip balms?  The suggested retail price is about $4.95 each, which is not bad until you realized that you can't just buy one and not the others.  I ended up walking out of the store with 4 super adorable lip balms, and $20 less in my wallet...but it's all worth it (I think) These lip balm pots are formulated to moisturize and leave a translucent shine on your lips.  They are also considered collectible items with 4 special edition flavors.  I don't know how long they will be available for purchase,  but I did find mine at a local Walgreens recently.  I'm pretty sure you can check out other major drugstores around your city, or visit Lip Smacker online to buy them.  I hope they will come out with more characters in the future. <3 Mickey: Marshmallow Pop Minnie: Strawberry Lollipop Winnie the Pooh: Honey Pot Stitch: Blueberry Wave

Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color (7R Raspberry Red) Review

I've been looking forward to getting my hair colored and it finally happened, thanks to a couple of lovely family members that helped me out!  Sorry it took me a while to review the Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color, but I just got it done yesterday and here's what I think about it.   I normally get my hair colored at the Salon, but this time I decided to do it myself (well, I didn't get it all done entirely by myself...but mainly because I wanted an even coating all around so I decided to ask for some assistance.) I think the Hello Bubble Foam Color is actually quite convenient and easy to handle even by yourself,  if you don't care about sectioning your hair into smaller bunches.  Treat it like you are shampooing your hair, and it will probably come out alright.  Before you start dying your hair, I would recommend applying a bit of vaseline or baby oil around your hairline and on your ears as well, so that your skin won't get stained if yo

Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color (7P Vintage Rose Pink) Review

At the end of 2014, I wanted to change my hair color, but I didn't have anything specific in mind.  I went to the local drugstores in my area and looked at a lot of colors and read their ingredients--and I went home feeling uninspired by all of it.  So I thought, maybe I should just dye my hair the same raspberry red from Hello Bubble as I did before.   I went online to shop for it, and that led me to the new color called 7P Vintage Rose Pink. I knew instantly that was the color I wanted to try!  I had a great experience with this brand the first time when I used it ( Check Out My Previous Post For 7R Raspberry Red ), so I wasn't worried about the formula, but more about how and if the color would turn out on my hair.   Once again, Hello Bubble Foam Color did not disappoint me! I loved it!  Why I like the Formula :  I've mentioned in my previous post that I really like the foam formula.  It's non-drippy, and extra easy to apply by yourself (this time I re
