Paint'em Pretty ~ Beyond Perfect

Yes, you see correctly ~ I decided to cut my nails short.
Why? Who the heck knows! Am I glad that I did?
NO, not now!
Seemed like a good idea at the time.
You know, I thought cut them back, let them get stronger - like they needed to be any stronger!
Wire cutters would have done a better job
than the nail clippers I used!

But as they say, they will grow out.
In the meantime, I have nothing to use to pry anything open with! UGH!

So this week they are painted #14, Peaceful Plum from the Sally Hansen Collection of Beyond Perfect Protein Nail Color.
Beyond Perfect - apropos for this post huh?

My accent nail is Art Deco Nail Art Lacquer by L.A. Colors in Silver Glitter. Yes, still stuck in glitter mode.

Then, of course, topped with one coat of my fav top coat Sally Hansen's Megashine.  I'm getting really low on my Megashine and am having trouble finding it. I am hoping they didn't replace it with a new/improved "top coat" I keep seeing everywhere.
I am on the hunt!

Until next time ~

Paint'em Pretty - Sinful Colors Professional ~ Tempest

OK I'm ready for Spring! LOL
Sinful Colors Professional ~ Tempest
2 coats
I cut strips of tape for my accent finger 
painted Art Deco Nail Art Lacquer
by L.A. Colors in white over all for stripes.
Then topped with one coat of top coat
Sally Hansen's Megashine.

I was pleasantly surprised how good the stripes turned out!
Uh yeh, it will be awhile before I can do
 something like this if ever, but aren't they cute!!

Herb Scissors by Marky Products Review #MarkyProducts

Let me introduce to you your next
''can't live without kitchen gadget''!

I didn't even know such a thing existed.
I must be hiding under a rock!

We all know what a tedious task it is to chop or dice up herbs
for cooking. Half the time mine get mangled and
stuck to the cutting board with most of their
flavor juices squeezed out by the time
they actually make it into the dish.
I'll spare you from that horrendous sight.

Yes, I love cooking with fresh herbs,
but often grab dried for the convenience.
I know, with a beautiful herb garden
right out back - shame on me!

So when I was asked to try the Herb Scissors,
needless to say I was definitely intrigued.

Garlic Chives



I was able to chop and mince herbs quickly with these 
 5 blade stainless steel herb scissors.
I also love that you can shred lettuce with these!
A real time saver.
Useful for hand paper shredding too.
The soft silicone lined handles were comfortable
and made for an easy grip. 

Love the little clean up brush to use if necessary. 
Easy clean under running water,
but is also dishwasher safe.

They also come with a
100% Marky Products Herb Scissors
Lifetime Guarantee
What a great gift for the cook in your life!

Herb Scissors by Marky Products
are available on Amazon.

 I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free or a discounted price from Marky Products. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers

Renuzit Sensitive Scents Review and Giveaway ~ #SensitiveScents

Renuzit has come out with a new line of Sensitive Scents
with soft delicate aromas to freshen your home without overpowering those with sensitive noses.
This is especially interesting to me because I have
2 children who have Vasomotor Rhinitis.
They are sensitive to strong/certain scents,
one more so than the other.
Headaches are almost immediate
then sinuses start to ache.
So I need to be careful with any fragrant products I use.
And wouldn't you know I LOVE fragrance!

I very anxious to try out each form:

Adjustable Scent Cone
Universal Scented Oil
Deodorizing Trigger Spray

A variety of fragrances are available:

Pure Water Blossom and Cucumber
Pure Ocean Breeze
Pure White Pear and Lavender

I received the Pure Water Blossom and Cucumber
Adjustable Scent Cone and placed it in the bathroom.
It has a fresh clean Summery floral scent and
will last for up to 4 weeks. 

Next I opened and put together the Universal Scented Oil.
I placed in in the outlet in our entryway, so as someone enters our home they get a whiff of the delightful Pure Ocean Breeze scent.
I think this scent is my favorite.
A fresh clean breezy scent.
A side note:
Renuzit's Plug-in Refills universally fit any
Glade or Air Wick oil warming unit.

The Deodorizing Trigger Spray I used in the kitchen after cooking to remove any lingering odors. It came in the Pure White Pear and Lavender scent and was amazing. Neutralized the food smells and left it smelling wonderful. I do need to remember this is a trigger spray and not an aerosol, a little goes a long way, which I love!
I also used the Trigger Spray in the living room, with 3 dogs it can always use a bit of freshening up.

I have to say my home smells really good right now!
There's a different scent in several areas and as you walk through they are not only delicate enough to blend and enhance each other they knocked out any unpleasant smells that were lingering.

The main thing is my children were NOT bothered by the scents! They liked the scents because they were not only light but they smelled good.

Have you tried any of these yet?

Paint'em Pretty ~ Valentine's

There was a major time crunch this past week or so.
Being released by one Doctor for one son,
only to have 2 new specialists enter for other.
Now waiting approval for 2 surgery dates.
Last Friday capped it off with 5 appointments in one day.
Intersperse watching my sunshine when
her parents were in a pinch, 
much more fun than stressful ;)

But I digress ~
with Valentine's approaching my nails had
been bare and I got the evil eye from my counselor.

What can I say,
there's only so many hours in the day!
I assured her I would make time for myself,
she assured me going to my appointment didn't count.

So I was thinking of a quickie Valentine inspired mani to throw on my nails. No not a real Valentine's girl, more anti-Valentine's, but was trying to get into the spirit of things, when I remembered something I saw on Pinterest.
you can see their original article by clicking on their link ^
She has lots of fun ideas!

I applied a couple coats of
Finger Paints ~ Brushstroke Blush,
alas I think it may be the end of my bottle.

When my polish was thoroughly dry,
I drew on a little gold heart with a Gold Sharpie!
Easy peasy!
And if you make a mistake,
you can gently wipe it off with rubbing alcohol.
Once done, let thoroughly dry.

 Topped off with 1 coat Sally Hansen's Megashine,
I was done!

The reason I was having difficulty finding Sally Hansen's Megashine is because they had repackaged it.
Frustrating, you know what your looking for but can't find it,
bugs me in the grocery store too!!

OK time to get out there and get your
Valentine Nails done if you haven't already!

I'm of to get lab work done

Great idea, your family could even plant you
