The Latest Trend In Manicures Aquarium/Bubble/Aqua/Water Nails

Good example of aqua nails I found on Youtube

I got a little excited recently when a video of a friend showing off her new "aqua nails" came across my Facebook feed.  I haven't seen anything really new or different in the nail world in awhile so I was a little surprised by it.  "aqua nails" are nail tips that look like a little snow globe on your finger.  They are hollow tips that you fill with glitter or any other teeny thing you would like, you add water with a syringe, and then you seal it with glue.  They are a little thick so most people use them as accent nails and add embellishments to the point where the tip connects to the natural nail to hide the line that is pretty visible otherwise.

My Gorgeous New Earrings From Majestical Jewelry

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Majestical Jewelry was kind enough to send me these lovely Tortoise Shell style earrings to check out.  They came mailed in a white padded bubble mailer with a lovely blue gift box inside.  They also came with a nice little satin bag that is perfect for storage or gift giving.  I'm a sucker for a nice presentation so I love little personal touches like that.   The earrings are well made and look great. I'm quite happy with them although my daughter is trying really hard to talk me out them because she likes them so much too.  If you want to get your hands on your own pair you can find this style HERE.  They retail for $9 which seems like a steal to me the way they come so nicely presented. 

 The website also has a TON of other gorgeous pieces to choose from ranging from lower end costume to sterling and gemstone pieces.  I'm sure any jewelry lover could find several pieces to fall in love with there.  Check them out HERE!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter

Oh it's that time of year again.  Winter is here and that means the temperatures drop, the ground is covered in snow, the air is crisp and dry, and my skin decides to turn into sandpaper.  Ok maybe not as bad as sandpaper but it does get dry every winter, especially my legs and ankles.  If I don't combat it with lotions it will itch and crack.  That makes this the perfect time to try my Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter that iFabbo sent to me recently.
