“Nail polish? Life changing?” you scoff. “Surely not.”
“Oh, yes,” I say, “but not just any nail polish…”
Ahhh, super-shiney top coat. It has the ability to turn a diy mani-pedi into a thing of beauty. I used to have a bottle of cheap NYC Vinyl Shine top coat that could turn heads. But then they stopped making it.
I cried. But that loss led me to something greater.
“A quick-dry product? I asked. “I just want sparkle. Will it have the same gloss as my old product? The same deep, wet shine?”
Yes, she assured me , flatly. She obviously did not grasp the importance of this purchase to me. But I took her word for it. And Seche Vite has a fan for life.
It’s not just the pretty shine and long wear that has me hooked. It’s that amazing quick-dry factor. There’s no question that preventing damage to freshly painted nails is one of the great unsolved problems of motherhood. But this stuff lets you polish those piggies and get back to the business of life, fast.
And I’m not just talking faster-than-usual fast. I’m talking paint your nails and then go fix your hair fast. Paint your nails and change a diaper fast. Paint your nails, accidentally fall asleep with the kids at naptime, and NOT get little sheet-prints on your toenails kind of fast.
That, my friends is life changing. And it’s just what every mom needs.
So go, get your mom, or yourself, a bottle of this quick-dry top coat.
You’ll make her day. You’ll change her life. And she’ll hold your little face in her perfectly manicured hands and say, “You are so Cute, Smart and Organized.”
Happy Mother’s Day!

Seche Vite has no idea who I am or that I’m recommending their product. I just really like this stuff! ;)
There’s nothing like new makeup to a little pep in a girl’s step!
This weekend, go pick up a few of these beauties from e.l.f. cosmetics. You can get them pretty much anywhere, and at about $1.00 a piece, it won’t mess up your chances of eating out Saturday night. :)

I took my own advice last Friday and made a stop at Target over the weekend, (though not in my pajamas). They always have an awesome selection of rain boots, which inspired this collection of fun, rainy-day necessities, perfect for this weekend’s predicted showers.
Clockwise, from top:
I couldn’t resist the sunny personality of this umbrella from Thirty-One, $30 in Party Punch.
I love this great Merona trench, $50, from Target– the perky contrasting piping looks even better in person.
This Tresemme Climate Control hairspray stands up great for rainy days, but I’ve also found it to hold up well to Texas humidity, in general. $5.50 at Walgreens
Wet weather calls for a coat of waterproof mascara; try One by One from Maybelline.com
Classic yellow goloshes are given a preppy update with polka-dots: $30 from Target.com
I keep a bottle of this e.l.f. Makeup Mist and Set Finishing Spray handy for days when I know my makeup will need a little extra staying power. At just $3, Target, that’s pretty cheap beauty insurance.
You are so Cute, Smart and Organized!
