Shellac Nail Polish

Hey Guys,

I came across a relatively new product the other day that I thought I’d share with you. Mind you, I haven’t tried it for myself as yet, but based on the raving reviews, my curiosity has been heightened and I figure I may just get myself a sample this weekend. So the infamous product that has me super excited is Shellac Nail Polish. Now Shellac has been noted to be in high demand throughout all of 2010 and 2011, and is used by some if not most celebs. What makes it so popular you might ask, and why am I so interested in it? Well Shellac Nail Polish, is said to last all of fourteen (14) days without losing its lustre/shine, nor does it break, chip, or smudge. Now if you are like me, in that you love to see colours on your nails, however, you become disappointed once they start to chip, and then have to put up with the lengthy process of having to remove it, this ought to be the product for us to use. I don’t know about you, but often times I get frustrated and refrain from polishing my nails for this very same reason. I don’t want to polish today and absolutely love it, and within two or three days, that awesomeness disappears. 

Separate and apart from its appearance on your fingers, Shellac Nail Polish is known to grow one’s natural nail resulting in reduced requests for a full set of gel and acrylic application in a nail salon. Point to note, a lot of women add acrylic to their nails in an effort to have their nail polish last longer, as well as grow their own nail. So most naturally, my hearing of Shellac Nail Polish is wonderful news, especially now given the state of the economy and persons having to distinguish between needs and wants in terms of their spend. This polish is evidently a money saver! It promises less visits to the salon, as well as less money spent on getting nails done. If you do your nails at home, do not feel left out. For you, Shellac promotes savings in terms of the funds spent on obtaining nail products, as well as time. One polishes every two weeks as opposed to every week. I don’t know about you, but for me that’s amazing! 

Well guys, after reading all the fantastic reviews on this polish, I must say I was sold, Lol! After all, what other polish promises a great colour selection, lasting results, quick dry time, and absolutely no chips or smudges? I can’t wait to see the varying colours on display at the salon this weekend. So said, as they have a host of colours from which to choose, giving one the ability to derive new colours through the layering of multiple colours. I’m still going through my pink phase, so I may just try the Shellac Nail Polish Beau or Iced Coral, and some other colour, not sure which just yet. Did I say I was super excited about this product? Well, I am! I promise to give you all an update on my personal review of the product after use.

Girls Night Out!!!

Hey Guys, 

Last Thursday, I was invited to attend Girls’ Night with Amelia. I was pretty excited about this outing, as I tend to be home a lot since my move to Orlando a few months ago, and haven’t made any new friends as yet. Girls' Night is a series of events, hosted by Amelia’s friend, held every Thursday night. Last Thursday (30/11) in particular, the menu comprised of: apples and caramel dip, veggies and cheese with a ranch dip, popcorn shrimp, pigs in a blanket and pumpkin bread (all this we made as a group as our activity for the night). Oh….. and how could I forget? We had lots and lots of wine to drink ;) lol. I must say i thoroughly enjoyed myself. I had so much fun. It's almost like I had forgotten what it was like to hang with a group of girls, drink a glass of wine and talk about the many evils of the world.

Touch of Yellow

Hey Guys,

So today I attended church and the sermon was great; the pastor spoke about our willingness to help others in and around our community. So I decided to volunteer to feed the homeless in downtown Orlando. Below I share a few pics of my outfit. Happy Sunday Guys!!!!!

Navy and Polka Dots

Hey Guys, 

Now I don't mean to sound cliche' however, as of late I've found myself on somewhat of a "new spiritual journey" *smiles*. With that said, I've made the decision to start attending church more frequent than the norm. I just figured I shouldn't only be in attendance in the event of a wedding or funeral. I did so today, and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed the pastors sermon. Below I share with you, a few images of today's outing

Day and Night

Hey Everyone,

Sometime last week I went on the road in hopes of completing my "weekly rounds" at TJ-MAXX and Ross, and decided to take a few pics before heading out. The look I was going for I guess was casually chic based upon the mood I was in at the time.
