Sally's Clearance Haul

I managed to get in on a few of the clearance polishes at Sally's this weekend!  YAY!!!  I picked uo a few China Glaze, Finger Paints and an Orly.  The China Glazes are Caribbean Temptation, Sexy in the City and Japanese Koi (neon orange).  The Finger Paints are One in a Melonand Sweet Spring.  And last but not least, Orly Key Lime Twist. The polishes were either $2.99 and $4.50.

I polished my nails with the China Glaze Sweet Spring.  It is a pretty pale pink.  I am amazed with this polish!  It has super shiny finish to the polish!! In the picture, I do not have a top coat on my nails!!   It was opaque in 3 coats and dried fairly quickly.  In less than an hour, it is dent proof after 3 coats.  I consider that pretty great!

Big difference in the color with and without a flash.   I wasn't sure I would like the color but it was a buy 2 get 1 free today so I decided to pick it up.  Most of the colors left are drab colors or serious glitter bombs.  I can make my own glitter bomb that I like more than what was offered on clearance.

I might do something else with this mani, like stamp or maybe some fancy nail art!  I'll post it if I decide to do it.  My next mani will be in the Caribbean Temptation color!

Have a great and cow filled day!!

Pond's See For Yourself Challange

Long time, no blog!!  No excuses.

So, I received an invitation from Influenster for their Pond's See For Yourself challenge.  I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.  I began using the Pond's Rejuveness Anti-Wrinkle Cream and Clarant B3 Dark Spot Correcting Cream on May 6.  Today, I have been using them for 2 weeks. I took a picture the first day, second day and then decided it wasn't necessary to take my own picture every day.  I don't want to see my face that much and I'm sure no one else does either!  So I'm not sure I can see a lot of difference in wrinkle reduction but I only had very fine lines anyways.  Good genetics from my mom!  I should say that I am 47, ok, well not yet, but on the 21st I will be. So for all intents and purposes, I am 47!  :p  

Pond's asks to use these creams for 2 weeks to see the difference.  I looked thru the tutorial on the Pond's website and I was bummed that I didn't get their little tester kit to measure your wrinkles   Here is the site if you are interested in the challenge.  I have my pictures at least!  As for the dark spots, my complexion isn't even.  I have rosacea as well, so that makes my face look red at times.  

Day 1

         Day 2                                                     Day 5                                                    Day 7

         Day 9                                                   Day  9                                                      Day 9

        Day 10                                                  Day 11                                                    Day 11

      Day  12                                                Day 14                                                     Day 14

Ok, so there you have it.  My skin feels nicer. Wrinkles? Maybe a slight improvement.  As for any dark spots, I can't say as my face has shown many that are very obvious but I have noticed that the dreaded age spots have started on my hands!  I will attempt to see of the Pond's Clarant B3 Dark Spot Correcting Cream may help them.  Stay tuned for that review! 

What do you think?

Have lovely, cow-filled day!
