Models Own - Pinky Brown

/hihi

Hello Lovelies!

It's me again! I have another beauty to show you today. Earlier I tried doing some tape manicure, needless to say I hated it - so i changed it for something beautiful! Look at this precious baby that Maria sent me for Christmas.

This is Models Own - Pinky Brown

KIKO - 401 Peacock Green

/hihi

Hello Lovelies,

So I tried my first Kiko polish - Maria sent me this beauty and oh my! It didn't dissapoint! Thank you, Thank you Maria! :) Very gorgeous, too bad I could capture the awesomeness of this polish. Application was smooth and this polish was opaque in two coats.

Without further ado I present you Kiko - 401 Peacock Green

Influenster: Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner

/hihi

Hello Lovelies,

Tonight I have a late post non-polish related... but hopefully useful.

I recently received a shampoo and conditioner through the Influenster program. These are out of the Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue line; they were designed to nurture the scalp and dry damaged hair with intensive care, leaving hair up to 10X Stronger.

Do you abuse your hair? I wash my hair every other day - blow dry it - flat iron it and sometimes I even dare to curl it the same day I do all of those!!!! **shame on me**  How about you?

My thoughts?
I have been using this shampoo and conditioner for the last 2 weeks or so. I can see the difference, the websites suggests that you can see improvement in just four uses....not true! at least not in my case, but after 2 weeks I can definitely see improvement. My hair looks much better, specially the ends that were all damaged and fried from the flat iron and all the heat abuse. My hair is also silky and stronger, the scent is pleasant. Overall, I think I will be buying this product once is time to replace. I like it much better than the one I was using before.

/bye
**This product was sent for review from Influenster**

Iced Lacquer Challenge: Christmas Glitter

 /hihi

Merry Christmas!!!

I'm sure that by the time this is posted I must be watching my son open his Christmas gifts from Santa. I'm excited for him, since I know my family has been very very nice to my little guy and has spoiled him rotten! I know he is not going to believe his eyes. You know Christmas is for the kids more so than for the adults but I do have a nail-polish gift under the tree that came very very far away that I will be opening at midnight! (12/24) - that is if i can wait until then! Gigantic hugs from me and my family to you all!

This is the last of the challenge posts hosted by the lovely Tia. Thank you Tia for hosting this awesome challenge. 

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas day, eat a lot and be joyful! :) 


I decided to go with a favorite from Color Club - Holiday Splendor, this is three coats and elmer's glue base for easy removal. 



My internet at home is still not working so I have been struggling to upload pictures, content and also comment like i usually do. Please forgive me - i have been using my phone to post (very hard) - once i get that resolved I should be back to business...hopefully soon.
