Nail News

14 Nov

Apparently there is a new trend for men, male nail polish.  There are several brands that now make nail polish exclusively for men.  One such brand is ManGlaze, have you seen it?  It boasts at being the “manliest nail polish known to man.”  I saw the trend pop up a few weeks back during NY fashion week.  I actually didn’t pay much attention to it.  I mean for what?  Dr. B certainly isn’t interested, why should I be.

That is until last Friday when I went to the grocery store to purchase few alcoholic beverages for our trip to Jacksonville. The clerk’s nails were painted blue and white!  I guess it doesn’t take long for trends to trickle down to the masses. Have you seen any men sporting nail polish?

In other nail news… for those like me who sport natural nails, but find it difficult to keep a manicure longer than three days, Couture Gel Nail Polish kit to the rescue.  Couture’s Gel nail kit includes:

  • Your choice of 3 Couture Gel Nail Polish colors
  • Plus base coat and top coat
  • A professional 36-watt UV Espree Salon Lamp
  • Instructional DVD
  • Zippered carrying case for easy storage
  • And a bonus salon nail care kit!

The best part is the price.  It’s only $129, which if you do the math, is much cheaper that paying $35 for gel nail application at a salon.  This kit is definitely on my list!

Couture also sells the gel nail polish in sets of 3 for $45 (you chose your colors), additionally they sell the bulbs for the UV lamp for $25.

I can see myself getting tons of use out of this kit.   I love the look of short natural nails in pretty colors, and couture has some really nice shades to choose from and they update the colors every season.  How often do you go to the salon for a manicure, would you use this kit instead?

Weekend of Wonderful Weather

4 Nov

Wow! I hope wherever you live, your having as beautiful weather as we are in Central Florida. After two weekends of traveling, I’m excited to be able to stay home and enjoy hanging out with Dr.B. What are you getting into? Whatever you have planned stay safe and have loads of fun!


Right Now…

29 Sep

I’m enjoying the view, a glass of wine, and a good book on the balcony. Lazily waiting for Dr. B to get home from work.

Any plans for this evening?


Chill Time

25 Sep

Dr. B and I are hanging out by the pool today. It’s been a lazy day. We didn’t roll out if bed until 2:00. We had a few friends over las night to watch the Florida game. One, who shall remain nameless ended up crashing in the guest room 🙂 I hope you made the most of your weekend.
