Sally Hansen #CSMTKO Complete Salon Manicure Review

As I mentioned earlier, I got the chance to try out Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure from Influenster.  They sent me three colours to try and I took off Jaded today and used the other two.  I went straight for Jaded since I loved the colour and it is a little different than the classic red of Red My Lips and the vampy plum of Pat on the Black.  I was a little disappointed at first, the first coat of[Read more]

Trying Out imPRESS Nails From Influenster

One of the first things I tried from influenster was the imPRESS nails from Broadway Nails (after eating my free Skinny Cow crisp bar). Sadly, I received short nails so I cut my nails down to try these, it is strange having short nails, but so much easier to type!  I am not a huge fan of stick on nails in general, but these are not as annoying as many, they fit well compared to most too, no shaping needed. [Read more]
