I Spy…Sally Hansen’s Spring Salon Effects and Revlon’s Crackle Effects

I just happened to stop by a Walgreens this afternoon after I finished a gig at Bed, Bath and Beyond. I think I was trying to soothe myself because there was nothing new at BB&B. I got my giddy back finding these new things at Wags…

This is the first I have seen of these, so they must be brand new. So new that they didn’t even take the time to price them. But I’m sure they are around the $10 price point the others have been.

Cute names! And I’d be all over the ‘Not a Peep’ if they had been the actual, trademarked Peeps.

 Do these remind you of aprons? Do you even know what an apron is!!

Polka dots; WIN! Every single one of these are dainty and cute. Very feminine and flirty.

Next, I found Revlon’s dual end Crackle Effect polish…

I have read about this collection on other nail blogs. However, this is the first time I have seen it in stores.

 Pairing the crackle with a regular polish is not only a cool idea but the price is decent at $8.

Surprisingly, there are several frosts. I wasn’t expecting that many. Looks like 4 shades. But I think all the base colors are fun and trendy shades.

The display had samples of the finished look. Then, those silly displays are tipped at just the right angle to look good visually, but to photograph terribly.

While doing a project at Walmart, I found something that took me back to long ago…

Do you remember Lisa Frank products? These go back to the ’70’s. I remember getting some of these stickers in high school and putting them up in my locker. LOL Things haven’t changed. There were just two of these books left. I got them both. Would you like to win one? Leave a comment with your email addy and tell me what you like about today’s post. Anyone can win. I’ll keep this open til March 4, 8 PM CST.

Will you get any of the Spring LE Salon Effects? How about Revlon’s Crackle Effects, or, are you like me and just done with crackles?

Christmas Dance Nail Stickers

I got these cute Christmas stickers at Sally’s. The stickers I used on my thumb made getting these a given…

These remind me of the kids dancing on the stage in the Charlie Brown Christmas Show. Do you get up and dance with them?! What….no? I do.

You so know you dance like ‘Yellow Shirt’!!!!

I used a green creme from a Fall collection Icing put out…

No name, just awesome murky green. I have three coats on.

Then, I put on an assortment of Christmas stickers…

 

I used a coat of Seche Vite to protect them. However, these stickers are thin. I don’t even feel them when I rub my finger over them.

They’re so sweeeet! And just when I think no one notices my nails when I’m out working, I ended up with 2 compliments on them today.

Tomorrow, I’m going to an all-day workshop, so I’ll be sporting these. This workshop is, actually, to learn how to use something that I will be doing a giveaway on!!!! Yes, it is that detail-oriented so before I review it and have it for the giveaway, I have to learn how to use it too. That’s all I’m telling you…BWHAAAAHAAAHAAAA!

These stickers were fairly easy to apply. I did use a pair of needle-nose tweezers to remove them from their backing and place them on the nails.

Do you wear nail stickers? If you like these, you can find them at Sally’s.
