Happy New Year's Eve!! Nails and Review

I've been horrible with posting this year. Hopefully next year I will do better. I normally don't really do anything on New Year's because it's busy where ever you go, and you have to worry about the idiots on the road at the end of the night. So I knew I wasn't going to be doing or going anywhere, but I still wanted to do my nails,

I have some nail foil sheets that I have been meaning to use and review. I don't really have any nail stamps for the holiday, so I decided to try out the foils. I chose these 2 to use:

 These can be found here - bornprettystore nail foils. There are 13 designs to chose from. When you take them out of the packages, they look like this:

So pretty!!!

This was my first time using foils, but I caught on pretty quick. To make it easier to work with I cut off a section of the foils. I randomly placed spots of the nail glue and then pressed the foils on the the glue randomly. I really love how they turned out and highly recommend these. They make it look like a lot of work was done, but it was simple and quick. I used a base of black and blackish glitter. I used normal top coat and they turned out fine. I've heard that some topcoats can make the foil look matte and less awesome. I had no issues.

There are my results:

I really love these nails!! I couldn't decide what pictures to include, so I just added them all!!! Some of the pics show the sparkle and shine better then others. There is no wrong way to use the foils. Every nail is unique and full of awesome.

I did these on Monday and on Tuesday I had a little tip wear from work (I type most of the day) so I just touched up with black polish and a little more foil. I didn't take any pictures of them, but I mainly used the silver holo foil.

If you haven't tried these yet you really should. They are easy to use and look awesome!! If you go to Born Pretty Store and use this code NWG10 you will get a discount on your order! Have a great and safe New Year's!!!

ShaveMOB Stocking Stuffer Review

I was contacted by ShaveMOB to do a review of their products for their up coming Stocking Stuffer Campaign. I was happy to give it a shot. I was sent a handle and 4 cartridges of 2 different blade type. The 2 blade types I got were the 4 blade and 6 blade types.

The 6 blade cartridges are on the left, with one of them on the handle, the 4 blades cartridges are on the right.

Before I do my review here is some info on ShaveMOB!

ShaveMOB is a website were you can order shavers for cheaper then in store and they are mailed to you. A one month supply is 4 cartridges of your choice. All of the cartridges fit the same handles, so you don't have to worry about trying different blade types! It's not something that is automatically sent to you, so you only get what you want, when you want it, which is awesome in my opinion.

For Christmas they have special Stocking Stuffer Kits starting at just $9.99! And shipping is free with all orders.

The kit contains: 1 handle (men's or women's)
                            2 month supply of blades (4 cartridges)
                            and a mustache monocle!

Sadly the only thing you don't get is shaving cream but I have been told that starting early next year it will be something they will offer.

They also created a little video that I actually find very funny lol

So on to my review!

I normally use the Intuition shaver since I don't like messing around with shaving cream. I didn't want to go out and buy any shaving cream, so I decided to use up some random bottles of conditioner. If you haven't tried it, you should give it a go :) I've used it before for shaving and I think it works just as good.

A closer look at the blades. The 6 blades come in individual packages and the 4 blade are all in one package.

I found that the blades were a very good quality and worked very well. My shave felt just as smooth if not a little better then my normal razor. I've used it several times since I got it. I have not tried the 4 blades cartridge yet, but I plan on it.

I think this is a great deal. When you make your first order you pay $3.00 for the handle, but after that it's just $9.99 for 4 cartridges and shipping is always free. If your looking for something useful for someone on your shopping list I highly recommend checking out ShaveMOB!

Thanks for reading and please feel free to leave any comments of questions for me and I will respond as soon as I can! Have a great holiday!
