If you like long nails like I do, this product is a must. I discovered these years ago. I’m still on my original package. I just purchased another one yesterday because I had a coupon for 15% off my entire purchase at Sally Beauty.
Super Nail Swiss Silk Nail Wraps are $4.99 for a package of 40. They come in various sizes and are self adhesive. They are pre-shaped in a nail shape, so you don’t have to trim too much off. I have broken nails completely off and have been able to save the nail. Lately I’ve been using several layers to make my nails super strong. I cover the entire nail with the wrap, then cover completely with brush on nail glue. Let dry, then apply more nail glue. You may need to buff them with a fine grade nail file. I then apply my favorite basecoat, also available at Sally Beauty. Gelous Nail Gel basecoat for $5.99. It’s a thick basecoat, but it’s the best I’ve ever used.
I currently have three nails with silk wraps on them. I’ve had up to five nails at a time with the wraps. They are awesome! For extra strength, I brush nail glue behind the nail with the wrap. Just make sure when you change polish to use a non acetone polish remover. Otherwise you will weaken the nail wrap.
Ulta is my favorite store. Since I’m a rewards member, they are always sending me coupons for free stuff. Well, free with any purchase. Today’s freebie was Matrix Total Results Color Obsessed shampoo and conditioner. They are each 1.7 ounces. Perfect for our upcoming vacation. I would imagine it’s pricey, but free works very well for me. Matrix Total Results Color Obsessed shampoo
I didn’t need anything, so I grabbed some Essence The Gel nail polish on Jeans On! This polish is only a $1.99, and I love this color of blue. I was turned on to this brand by another beauty blogger. This is really some pretty darn good polish. It stays on well, and is very shiny. Can’t got wrong for under $2 bucks. If I wasn’t digging my current manicure so much, I would be wearing this now.
I also got some Ulta Make up Wedges for $1.99. These are good quality sponges that are easy to clean. I just throw mine in a lingerie bag and wash them in the washing machine.
Okay, I know it’s September, but it’s 85 degrees here in Southeasten Wisconsin, and I’m still digging Summer’s bright colors. I’m playing with my Julep nail color freebie box which has 12 colors, now on colors number three and four. I got twelve full size bottles for free, just for signing up. I had never used Julep before, but I love the brand now. It stays on well, and is very pigmented.
The orange color is Jenna and the bright pink is Randi.

I just may have to wear this duo with my snazzy dress for our vacation in Costa Rica.
Kindness is one of the most admirable traits a person can have.
