thursday product review: sensationail

~finished product~

i havent posted in oh, about 6 months, because i felt a little uninspired and unoriginal.
however, i tried a product yesterday that i really cannot NOT post about.
it's the best thing EVER!

it's called sensationail and it's an at-home gel manicure.

if you have ever gotten a gel manicure, it is basically exactly the same, but at home.

the kit costs $50- $60 and includes everything you need including the LED lamp and one color (each additional color is about $10).

basically, you wipe your nails off with their solution, do one layer of base coat, 2 of the gel color, one of the top coat, and then wipe them off with the solution provided. more in- depth directions are in the kit, but  it is VERY easy! oh, and the second you are done, your nails are COMPLETELY dry!

as far as i can see, the kits are sold at walmart and CVS, but i assume other stores will get on board!

also, I THINK you can use your own color and then just use their gel top coat and LED lamp, but i am not entirely sure! (want to try it)!!

it's been 2 days and my nails are still perfect! my hope is that they at least last through the weekend, but supposedly they should last up to 2 weeks!!

updates to follow- let me know what you think!!

what's for dinner: stuffed portobello mushrooms

after a huge lunch yesterday, at fresh choice in suburbia (seriously, and so good- hadn't been in years) we wanted to still eat dinner, but wanted something quick and healthy. so i made this tasty and hearty recipe last night, just by using ingredients that we already had:

portobello mushrooms
cheese (any kind)
turkey sausage
bread crumbs
olive oil

my man is a tough critic but really liked it! said it didnt even need the added meat ;)

thursday product review: wet and wild nail polish

i never thought that i would buy anything wet and wild after junior high, but recently, i did and am so happy about it!!

i had wanted a new red, but dont wear it often, so after seeing that essie was still $8 (even at wallgreens), i decided to look at the colors wet and wild was offering!!

this color is .99 cents!! i mean, you really cannot go wrong.
they also have a more expensive line which is $1.99.
that was too much for me, so i decided on the .99 cent option and it is as good a nail polish as any opi or essie color i have used.

obviously, they have less of a selection, but for normal colors, at .99 cents (or even $1.99), wet and wild really cant be beat!!

i also went back and got more of a coral-y color called blazed, and i really like it as well!
