Fashion and Fun after Fifty

A few weeks ago it was reported and obviously rebuked by nail technicians that Gel Manicures pose a health risk, that the process of using UV Rays to set the gel can cause skin cancer.  But what about Shellac Manicures, do they pose the same risks because the setting method is the same?  There are many pros and cons for each including this one, (here), but you have to judge for yourself.

I’ve had both and personally prefer The Shellac for several reasons, the process is quicker; the length under the UV light is shorter and last but not least, it’s cheaper!

Yesterday during my lunch break I went to Nail Paradise in the Frazer Shopping Center, where I received a Shellac manicure by Lisa, a very pleasant nail technician.  There were so many pretty bright colors from which to chose but I selected this Midnight Blue, what do you think?

Have you had a Shellac or Gel Manicure – if so, which do you prefer?

Lisa, the Nail Technician, was very pleasant and I enjoyed my “quick pamper”.

I’m not sure if you’ve seen an Avon catalog lately and if not, here’s just a taste of what you’ve been missing.  As an Independent Sales Rep for Avon for over 15 years I’ve seen many changes all of them good.  Avon is a company that has been in business for 125 years and has changed with the times without sacrificing the quality of their products, however, it is no longer your grandmother’s Avon – check it out.

This morning on EyeOpenerTV there was a featured interview with Tim Gunn of Project Runway.  He is partnering with Walgreens in introducing “Night At The W”, an exclusive cosmetic event being held Thursday, 4:00 – 9:00 p.m. at the stores.  I was curious and wanted more information so after work I stopped at my local Walgreens in Middletown.  My favorite store associate, Anna Marie was busily working the department, which as usual was fully stocked and neatly organized.  The new displays provided an upscale look with a clean and inviting layout, there definitely will be a lot of activity at this “Get Ready For The Red Carpet” event on Thursday.

Of course I am always on the look out for those orange, clearance stickers and tonight I spied Sally Hansen Salon Effects and Nail Polish on sale.  I am really looking forward to Thursday night and along with my Walgreens Rewards card I think I will come out a winner.

Have a good night – Smooches!

Hello friends and happy Saturday. Yesterday I left work early because I got really ill after eating a sample of pasta salad from Primo Hoagies. My head was spinning so badly that I didn’t think I would make it home. I did however, with a lot of prayer and by keeping my head steady and firmly pressed against the head rest. Because I rarely if ever get sick I always think the worst, this time a brain tumor or aneurysm came to mind – I know! I feel better but still have a dull headache which doesn’t seem to want to go away even with several Alleve capsules.

This morning I had my annual eye appointment and chose to have the full comprehensive Optomap and refraction exam to rule out any constricted blood vessels or major changes to my vision. Everything was normal and although I still have to wear glasses my vision got better, not worse. I took over 30 minutes, tried on more than 12 pairs looking for just the right frame to ensure I would wear the glasses as prescribed.

After leaving Halpern Eye Care I drove to Family Dollar for cleaning and beauty supplies. I got the normal items, PineSol, Gain detergent, cotton balls, tooth brushes and tooth paste but what caught my eye were the 3 displays perched high above the other beauty supplies – Sally Hansen, Kiss and Fingr’s nail decals. The Kiss and Fingr’s nail decals were clearly marked $3., but there wasn’t a price listed on the Sally Hansen products. Having bought Salon effects from both Walmart and Walgreens they are normally priced $8.50, so thinking they were at least that price I only put one box in my basket. At the register they rang up $5.00 which is a fantastic price, I will now search for coupons for my next purchase at Family Dollar.

Have a fantabulous night – Smooches!

If you ever shopped at a five Below you’d know that in addition to the toys, school supplies, candy, plastic wear, swimwear, iPhone/laptop/computer accessories, blah blah blah blah blah, they also carry nailwear and cosmetics on the cheap.  I stopped in last evening and picked up a few items to add to my already excessive nail polish collection!  Unfortunately, my nails were weaken by a Gel manicure done at a salon so I have been doing my own and I like the new colors and products currently on the market.  fiveBelow also carries a brand of the Magnetic nail polish which I would like to try, but they only had one bottle and it was a color that I didn’t particularly like so I’ll check another store over the weekend.

Sally Hansen HD Hi Def Nailwear – $2.00

Sally Hansen Salon Effects – $3.00

Nutra Nail Gel Manicure Kit – $5.00

I need to go through and organize this mess!

By the way, check out my cousin’s nails, these are short considering what they once were a few years ago!

I like looking through the cosmetics and bath/beauty supplies at Ross because there is always something to be found at a reasonable price.

4 pack of Glitter Nail Polish by Color Club – $5.99

 

Went on smoothly, two coat coverage was great and dried quickly.

No dress today, the weather is cool and gloomy.
Have a fan-tab-u-lous weekend!

 

This pallet was $5.00, I guess @DollarTree has to change it’s slogan – “Dollar Tree Where Everything is $1.00”

Here are some cute, inexpensive items that can be purchased, placed in a basket and given as a Mother’s Day gifts.

All of these items are mine – yippee – Happy Mother’s Day to me!!!
