Oh My! I don't know what I had been waiting for! I got my nails shellac'd yesterday and it's amazing! It's similar to the gel nail polish in that in lasts for up to two weeks and uses your own nails. No acrylics needed! And it gives the nail strength which is a God-send for me, because I'm so rough with my nails and break them all the time! I am hoping this will help that problem and that I can keep it up to have a nice, manicured hand all the time now.

It's a little more expensive than a regular manicure, but only by about $5. And with the extra time you get between visits to the salon, I definitely think it's worth it. While there aren't TONS of colors to choose from, they have a variety of colors and shades that will appeal to most. For me, red was perfect, though I'm already planning my next trip and the color I will get!

Have you tried this yet? What was your experience?

Dry Hair Faster!

It's one of my daily rituals that I hate. Drying my hair. It's gotten so so long I was hoping to donate it, but that's another story.

I shrieked with joy when this Goody Quik Style Paddle Brush showed up at the office. Anything that would cut down on drying time is a must-try in my book. So I packed it up and brought it home.

Oh my, am I thrilled! The brush has these little soft sponge like fibers in between the bristles that soak up water and help dry the hair faster. It works. I have definitely cut 5-10 minutes off my dry time. And you don't have to do anything different. No special products for your hair or anything. Just dry as usual using the brush.

Pick one up at Target and try for yourself. You won't be disappointed!
