My Pink and Pretty Quickly Mani with @SallyHansen

Busy does not being to explain the state I have been in the last few weeks!  It has been mayhem really – juggling transitions through and through. Personally, a few big things happened – I got married! It is a real mental transition from being a single girl to a married woman. Hard to explain and more in later post.  Secondly –  The weather has been trying to get to spring desperately and the rain/snow/sun combo has been definitely under the weather as they say. Third – I got a new job! So from going to freelance to full time has my agenda filled a bit more than usual and me sleepier lately.  More on that later as well.IMG_2941On days like this, simple and fast are both friends of mine and anything that embodies these attributes are my friend. So alas, let me introduce to you the stars of the day: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure and Sally Hansen Gem Crush.

The Complete Salon Manicure in Pink Pong is a Godsend after I did a gel manicure that ravaged my nails 🙁 They were thin as paper after 2 weeks of scratch free perfection and my natural nails needed something that was neutral and beautiful. Pink Pong is the pink color of a French manicure – a creme light pink that dries really quickly. It has a massive brush and my nails are tiny so it gave incredible coverage with one stroke. It has  a GEL-like shine and is chip resistant (kinda like how I have to be with all this stress!).

The Sally Hansen Gem Crush is what I call a true ‘one-coat’ glitter! It has micro glitters in a rose gold and then mini glitters in sliver. This color Razzle Dazzler is jam packed with glitter and one coat did the trick. I did put a top coat on it after to give it a shiny finish. This has a regular sized brush that is great for small nails like me. Make sure you give this a good shake.

Love these two colors that can be worn together or separate. It is a great on-the-go manicure or like me ‘recovery’ manicure while your nails grow long again. It is neutral enough that it can deal with a bit of imperfection and smudges but pretty enough to show that you care about your nails. Get these at any drugstore near you and find your combo colors to help you through your life ‘transitions’ easier on


27 already?

Cheers to 27 and another year of love and adventure!

Sally Hansen Salon Effects


I went to a Sally Hansen event this week and it was amazing.  The best part of beauty is the technology that comes along with it.  With innovation in nail, hand, feet, brow and body products and under the direction of Coty – Beauty Bloggers HEAVEN.

Since we have so many products that we are excited about, the first one we are going to talk about is Salon Effects.  These are real nail polish strips that last up to ten days. Very easy and you know I’m crazy about the denim, leopard and glitter.


If you want to win a Salon Effects package – Like Sally HANSEN and Tweet me @HeyDoYou “Get my nails did!”




A few weeks ago I went down to the Sally Hansen x Carmindy beauty launch event with Marc partly because I love beauty products but also partly because Marc use to date Carmindy. This event featured custom martinis with fruit infused vodka, extra loud club music and 3 separate rooms. The event was at 92Y Tribeca and here are the ‘real photos‘.

Carmindy is a famous celebrity makeup artist who also inspired these drinks

Of course Sally Hansen is known well for their outstanding nail products… but their makeup is also in full swing!

I met a handful of interesting folks… Models, photogs and random bloggers too
