Save your $10....Salon Express

So my husband surprised me by ordering this and having it delivered to me while he was at work. When the mail man came knocking on my door and assured me he wasnt at the wrong house I became excited. After getting my hopes up even higher from opening the box and seeing my husband had also ordered the extra like 30 something design plates.

Much to my surprise, this product totally sucks! I mean SUCKS! Save your ten bucks and go buy a nail polish or something. This product advertises "it works with ANY NAIL ART polish". Well folks I tried LA Deco Art, Sally Hansen ones, & some other brand Sally's carries. Every single one of them either smudged on the plate, stuck to the stamper, or wouldnt transfer at all and if it did transfer it was barely visible.  (The scraper also catches in the design grooves on some designs)

I thought maybe it was operator error but every other person I've talked to or let play around with mine had the same issues.

I guess for $10 I cant really complain, atleast my 4yr old stepdaughter has fun 'painting' lol

until next post.............XOXOX Brandi

Marine Motard Nails

Back when I thought it was cute to be a motard, I did my accent nails like the bottom part of the sleeve on the USMC Dress Blues.

It would be cute for the ball maybe a wedding.

DIY: Nail Polish Wall Rack

This was made for under $10, it holds about 90 polishes & is extremely sturdy. Should I make a tutorial showing how to make it?!

This is what's left of my polish collection after moving from Fl to Ga back to Fl then to NC. :(

Read My NAILS!

In lieu of St Patty's Day (since I suck at shamrocks) I decided to do this green look with the newspaper effect. It earned J's approval so I guess its a winner lol. He said "That's really hot" :)

Polish Used:
Sinful Colors in "San Francisco, Irish Green, Green Ocean"
Sally Hansen in "Green with Envy"
Pure Ice in "Oh Baby!"

 Same colors were used on my toes, which is how I discovered I suck at shamrocks! lol

Lots of Love & Luck
