Sally Hansen Salon Effects

Sally Hansen Salon Effects
Real Nail Polish Strips
360 Laced Up

 I received this product complimentary for testing and review purposes from Influenster

You can find these Sally Hansen products at drug stores,food stores, and mass merchandisers nationally. I always see them at Walgreens,CVS,Target,Wal-Mart just to name a few.  The suggested retailer price is $9.99

Laced Up is the pattern that I received but they come in 40 different styles.If patterns are not your style they also come in solid colors. These are not stickers they are actual nail polish but in strips that give you an instant manicure without the dry time!

The directions are on the box as well on the information packet that comes inside.

The box contains 16 nail polish strips to fit all nails,cuticle stick, mini file & buffer

First make sure your nails are free from nail polish and oils. After that,use the cuticle stick to push your cuticle back.
Select the sizes that you are going to be using and set them aside in order of which you are going to be applying them.

Remove the clear strip

Then remove the white backing

Apply strip to your nail as close to your cuticle as you can. Press the strip onto your nail.

Gently stretch strip over your nail. Firmly smooth over entire nail. Gently file away excess.

Salon Perfect manicure with no drying time. You can easily go out the door without worrying about smudging your nails.

Manicure last up to 10 days and can be removed with nail polish remover. These real nail polish strips are DBP, Toluene, and Formaldehyde free.
Honestly I was not sure if this design was going to work out for me since my nails are so short. I was so wrong. I can't stop staring at my nails. They look so pretty. Finding the sizes for my nails was easy too. I went a size bigger if I couldnt decide on which strip to use.  If it overlapped a little on the side of my nails, I gently pushed the sides with the cuticle stick and the excess nail strip came off.  Applying these strips was quicker than polishing my nails and waiting for them to dry.

This is a product that I received in my Influenster Spring Beauty VoxBox( . I have seen SoyJoy products practically in every store that I have been into. I saw it but never bought it. The word "soy" did not appeal to me very much. I am glad Influenster teamed up with SoyJoy to put this delicious snack bar into the Spring Beauty VoxBox. I ate it before I did 2 classes at the gym. Oh my gosh, it was so good. I liked that I could taste the strawberry in every bite, even the last bite. I liked that it was not crunchy and it did not leave a mess in my car. SoyJoy was just what I needed to keep me going in the gym. You can easily find SoyJoy at Krogers,Wal-Mart,Target and CVS just to name a few.

Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine BzzCampaign

I never gave it much thought to use Garnier shampoo and conditioners, I enjoy using their hair styling products so I was glad to have the opportunity to join the BzzAgent Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine shampoo and conditioner campaign. This system works best on dry, frizzy and unmanageable hair. After I had my son, the front part of my hair line got frizzy. I have noticed this has helped especially when I am in a hurry to get to the gym in the morning. I don't have to use hairspray to hold my hair down. It's suppose to keep your hair sleek for 3 days straight even in 97% humidity. As for that, I don't know because I have to wash my hair everyday. I can not stand not washing my hair daily. To make me love these products even more, Garnier is getting even greener. Sleek and Shine products come packed in Eco-Fructis bottles containing PET and 30% recycled plastic. Overall, I love using these products. I also use the Sleek & Shine Flat Ironing mist. It leaves my hair smooth and shiny. I love it all.

Garnier Sleek & Shine Shampoo contain Argan oil from Morocco and apricot. I like the way it smells. I smell more of the apricot than anything else.

Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine conditioner. I can immediately feel my hair getting soft and sleek as soon as I apply it. Even before I start working it into my hair. It doesn't weigh my hair down. It doesn't make my hair feel dingy or gross even after using products in my hair.

You can see how shiny and smooth my hair looks

My hair- no flash

My hair-flash

These items were given to me to test and review from BzzAgent. These are my honest opinions

Gossip Girl Birchbox

I had originally cancelled my subscription in December. I did not think it was worth the price especially when I was getting full size samples with CraveBox. When BirchBox put out there Teen Vogue Box, I really did like what everyone was getting. Birchbox emailed me about  the GossipGirl Birchbox I did not want to miss it. I have never ever watch Gossip Girl but I new I wanted this box. Fortunately I was not disappointed with this box. I hope they keep it up.
