Nails Of The Day - e.l.f. Fire Coral and NK Pink Diamond

"Borderline OBNOXIOUS", these bright coral shades are not for the conservative.
Guaranteed to make your toes pop, poolside or on the boardwalk!
These look fabulous against tanned or brown skin!

3 Fire Coral
2 Pink Diamond on top of the Fire Coral on the ring finger & pinky only.
Clear Top Coat

I know it seems like a lot, but the Pink Diamond is kind of sheer and I wanted the Fire Coral to serve as a base color.

I took these photos on day 2 of having worn these polishes! I think they held up pretty well, considering all of the chores and cooking I have done.

All photos were shot under diffused natural sunlight without flash.

Do you like orange or coral nail polish?

Elasta QP GLAZE Conditioning Shining Gel - REVIEW

"Shines, defines, accentuates, moisturizes, silkens and controls any texture hair Contains Glycerine, a lightweight humectant used primarily in skin care products, to impart moisture, and Panthenol (Vitamin B5) to create shine Greaseless formula never adds weight and can be rinsed out easily with water

Vitamin-rich, GLAZE is an artistic tool that moisturizes, silkens defines and gives shine. Use daily to shape, control frizz and add shine to any hairstyle. Easy to shampoo out. Contains NO WAX, NO PETROLEUM, NO ALCOHOL.

To Use: Spread in palm. Apply to damp or dry hair.
For smoothing edges, apply directly to hair."

INGREDIENTS: Water, Isoceleth-20, Paraffinum Liquidum (Mineral Oil), Glycerin, Oleth-2, Propylene Glycol, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Cocos Nuclfera (Coconut) Oil, Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Tocopherol(Vitamin E), Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Biotin (Vitamin H) Linoleic Acid (Vitamin F), Persia Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Contails Vitamins B2, D, A E, K & Potassium), Panthenol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Benzophenone-5, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Parfum (Fragrance)

This product can be used by everyone in my family.
- There are varying hair textures from 4c (tight kinky coiled), to 3b (Soft Wavy).
We are:
texlaxed (textured under-relaxed hair),
transitioning (half relaxed, half natural), relaxed, and natural.
- This product imparts sheen.
- It eliminates frizz.
I use it to smooth down edges for sleek looks, such as buns or ponytails.

My daughter's 4a hair is easily smoothed on the edges with this product.

Her APL (armpit lenght) hair is coiffed into a side swept donut bun.

I also use it to blend a small portion of hair from my hairline with wigs.
It does not matter whether the wig is a lacefront, straight, wavy or curly,
the transition is seamless with the use of this product.
The men in our home use this to set waves.
We love it!

I like the fact that it does not contain petroleum, wax or alcohol.
It does not leave our hair stiff or crunchy. It leaves the hair very soft.

I give this product 4 out of 5 stars.
I love all of the natural oils and vitamins, but really wish there was a way to retain all of the qualities of this product without the taboo ingredients such as the parabens and the mineral oil.

Drugstore Sales and BOGOs for 5/09 to 5/17/2010

It seems the trend is going away from "Buy 1 Get 1 Free". Yes, the drugstores are "hip" to our waiting until they advertise buy 1 get 1 free to purchase our precious makeup treasures. Alas, they have even resorted to limiting the quantities of our BOGO purchases.
How I long for the Buy 1 Get 1 FREE sales of previous decade.
Will we ever get a break? UGH!
