Magnetic Nail Polish!

Last week I went to my local dry cleaners to drop of some things and decided to take a trip to the beauty supply store right next to it.  And let me tell you! I stumbled upon the coolest thing!

MAGNETIC NAIL POLISH!

Now I had actually heard about this concept a few months ago when I received an email from Sephora about a UK based company called Nails Inc. who was pushing this very concept.  See the video below:

However…the only turn off for me was the fact that each bottle of polish costs about $16.00.  No ma’am!  I’m sure it’s totally epic and quite long wearing but…nah.

So when I came across the very same type of polish at my local beauty supply store by Nabi Cosmetics for only $2.99, I HAD to check them out!

Nabi has 30 colors and three different magnetic designs (compared to Nails Inc. with only 5 polish shades and one type of magnetic design) and works exactly like the Nails Inc. polishes as demo’d in the video above.  The only difference is that the Nabi polishes don’t have an over-cap for you to remove and set to the side so it can get tricky if you want to use the magnet design on the top of the polish you’re using.  I got around this because I had two and applied one color while using the magnet from the other to place above my nail.   But either way, it can be done…just with a little more hassle.  Initially I only bought these two colors because I didn’t want to invest in anything that I wasn’t sure I’d like.

So last Friday night I tried it out and I was soooo HYPE about the result! I shared this pic with my friends on Instagram and they, as well as everyone that saw my nails within the last week, LOVED them!

And the best thing is I think it has really great staying power.  Of course I used a base coat and a top coat with the polish because it’s second nature lol. But even so it lasted a really long time!  Here’s a pic of how my nails look even today:

I was so impressed by this new product that I went out and got a few more colors 🙂

Can’t wait to play with them all!  And you can follow me on Instagram to see pics of these polishes coming up and even more random images from me.

Hope you guys get to check out Nabi and their lovely magnetic nail polishes sometime soon!

Til next time…

Muy Interesante: Walk In Their Shoes

*taken from yesterday’s (4/24/12) Sabbath School Lesson

Without compromising on matters of principle, the apostle Paul was willing to go anywhere and do anything he could to be in a better position to convince people of the truth of the gospel. In other words, he was willing to walk in their shoes in an attempt to understand them and to determine the best way to reach them for Jesus Christ.

The point is that often we try to provide what we think people need. Yet we should seek first to understand what they see as their needs. To walk in the shoes of another means that we attempt to understand life and all its intricacies and issues from their perspective; it is to try to understand their hurts and joys. In other words, to meet them where they are.

Of course, this is what Jesus did. His earthly life was one of identifying with those He came to save. He can understand our struggles and pain because He experienced the same. He had great disappointments, endured false accusations, rejection, and unfair punishment. He was “God with us” in the fullest sense of entering into our lives.

Muy Interesante: Let the Holy Spirit Lead

*taken from today’s (4/19/12) Sabbath School Lesson

It is our responsibility to seek the will of God and to work in harmony with what the Spirit reveals. We must not fall into the trap of making plans and then seeking divine approval. Often we ask, “What can our church do for God?” We would do better to discover what God is already doing among His people and get involved with that.

Spiritual gifts must be used responsibly, and the best way to ensure this is for the receiver of a gift to maintain an open communication channel with the Spirit. We have a responsibility to maintain the unity of the church. If we are Spirit-led, there will be the desired unity. The Spirit directs individuals, and He directs the church. The direction He gives to one member, He gives to the whole church. The Spirit does not lead individuals away from the body.

Morning Melody: I Got the LIGHT!

Sometimes it’s necessary for us to be reminded of Whose LIGHT we’re supposed to let shine through our lives each and every day because sometimes! I say SOMETIMES!  Life, circumstances, and situations can quickly distract us from that fact (can I get a witness? WELL!).

I had to remind myself of that this morning…lol.  And this is how I did it!

Hope this serves as a timely reminder for you as well!

High Bun Tutorial by Peeks of MO-AM Network

So I’ve been thinking about putting up a video tutorial showing you guys how I do my high bun.

And then today…randomly on YouTube I saw a video of a girl doing the EXACT same technique that I use to get my high bun!  I may still make a tutorial of my own to share with you guys but I figured in the mean time I’d share this tutorial by the lovely Peeks of The MOAM Network.  I literally just discovered her like…10 minutes ago so I don’t know much about her, but I believe she’s from Scotland and she’s absolutely adorable; I LOVE her accent!

Check out the video below to see how she, and also I, get my high bun!

I hope that helps some of you out there and hopefully I’ll get to record a video of how I do it soon, but it’s pretty much exactly like this.

Til next time…
