If You Have Hair, The Wet Brush is a Must Have


For years, I have used an oversized wide-tooth comb to detangle my notoriously impossible to detangle post-shampoo hair. The amount of hair that would get caught in the teeth was somewhat alarming.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian.

Cocktail Napkins Raise the Bar

Posted on by daneen in Nails | Leave a comment

Don’t you just hate how, after removing your nail polish with remover and cotton balls, it leaves annoying fuzzies behind? The most exasperating part about it is that I never seem to notice the cotton fibers until I’ve applied fresh polish; and suddenly, there they are – wrecking my brand new paint job.

nailpolishremover Double DutyDid you know that nail polish remover does more than just remove nail polish? Accessories designer Melanie Dizon revealed to Lucky Magazine how she uses this beauty staple to clean patent leather.

What you’ll need: A couple of cotton balls and a bottle of standard-issue nail polish remover.

How it’s done: Immediately after wear, spot-clean surface stain by lightly rubbing with a cotton ball doused in nail polish remover. Air dry for five minutes then store the item in a cool place.

Then I Saw My Nails, Now I’m A Believer

Posted on by daneen in Nail Polish, Nails | Leave a comment

I’m the woman whose nails are never done. Not because I don’t care, but because the odds are never in my favor. It’s usually because my husband is complaining that the fumes kill his brain cells. Or I’m too exhausted to spend the hour and a half that it takes to properly do my nails. But even when I do make the time to give myself a manicure – inevitably, I get an itch that just has to be scratched, and I end up destroying the polish on one or more of my digits.

That’s why I was so excited about Incoco Dry Nail Appliqués, which “take a few minutes and result in professional manicure quality.” But being the skeptic that I am, I didn’t honestly think that this product would hold a candle to a trip to the nail salon – but beggers can’t be choosers, so I gave them a try.

Incoco DNA Then I Saw My Nails, Now I’m A BelieverThe Incoco Dry Nail Appliqués are dry strips of polish (basecoat, color, and topcoat layered and dried to the touch) that you fit to your nail size, peel off the backing paper, affix to your nail, and file off the extra. So, last night, I applied the appliqués according to the directions…and when I was through 20 minutes later, I couldn’t believe my eyes! For the first time in two months, my nails were done – and they looked like I had gotten them professionally done!

With Incoco Dry Nail Appliqués, there’s no smudging, no waiting, and no dead brain cells. The enamel bonds to natural and acrylic nails, for a manicure that lasts up to 14 days.

Available in 20 colors and 6 French Manicure shades (I’m modeling ‘Pink Satin’), each Incoco Dry Nail Appliqués kit contains 20 nail color strips, a mini nail buff, an orange stick, and a polish remover cloth. Sold exclusively at Walgreen’s.
