Sally Hansen Gel Nail Polish

Sally Hansen Gel Nail Polish
I know, the box is ripped, but that's alright, I would have done it anyway.  I picked up this little gem at CVS for the whopping price of $15.99. I know pretty expensive nail polish, right?  You have one of two options.  Buy each step separately at $9.99 a piece or get a price break buying both steps together.  Besides I had a coupon and CVS bucks to spend. 
I love nail polish, I just hate the chipping that comes with it.  It's always the same thing.  You take the time to paint them and wham, your blindsided with chips almost right away.  I ain't about that life!  As such, I thought this might be a great product to try out. 
This is a two-step process (really three).  The color I am using is call All Chalked Up.  Which I really like. It's reminds me of a beautiful wild lilac.  Purple hues are the color of fall you know.
Anyhow, I digress.  Two coats of the nail color, and make sure you let it dry in between coats.  Remember, patients is your friend during any application of nail polish.  The black bottle is the key to your success, so after your two coats of color have dried, apply the top coat.  No UV light needed...No Fuss, No Muss.
The picture below is Day 1
(I'm terrible at painting in the lines)
Below you will see a pic of Day 3, still holding up!
Finally day 13...Keep in mind that I've been pretty brutal to my hands over the past 13 days. Heavy cleaning has been involved, laundry, picking and peeling of stickers and boxes...Not to mention at work I actually put boxes together.  Earlier today I scrubbed the tile in my two person shower. 
With all this said, don't hate on this last pic...
My left hand actually still looks decent.  My right hand, not so much!  These pictures are as untouched as my nails.  After the first day I did no upkeep to my nails so I could get an honest look at them regarding the 14 day claim.
In my opinion, this is great polish!  Next time, I will do touch-ups to keep them looking fresh.  Over all the polish looked pretty good at about 5 days and the glossy shine was amazing!  My suggestion is to purchase this product in the combo pack which is cheaper and make sure you use a coupon!  I've already printed out a couple to get additional colors for my collection. 

Adovia Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Cream

 Below is a picture of the product I received.

The product was received in perfect condition and in a timely manner from Amazon.

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!!!!  If I could go back in time and tell this to my 20 year old self, I wouldn't, I'd scream it in my ear until I knew it had left an impression.

Fine lines, beginning signs of crows feet and dents in my forehead are just the beginning signs of my hellacious spiral into being a mature adult.  Well maybe not mature, but no less an adult!

Adovia Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Cream will now be an integral part of my arsenal against my enemy.  Which of course is TIME and GRAVITY.

I received Adovia Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Cream about a week ago.  It is decent sized at 1.7 fluid ounces in a sleek frosted glass container.  A light non-offensive aroma is noted.  The cream itself is jam packed with Dead Sea Minerals, Seaweed, Anti-Oxidants and Aloe Vera.  A great moisturizer to use during the day, night or both.  I give the cream at least 5 minutes to fully absorb before adding anything else onto my face.  I have combined Adovia's Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Cream with my liquid foundation.  No streaks at all. 

I've been using the cream for about a week now and after every application my skin feels tighter, velvety smooth and just plain healthier.  My husband says I look like I'm in my twenties.  Course, he has to say things like that.  I'd like to think that maybe my skin is starting to look closer to twenty-something, instead of thirty-something.  I even find myself wearing less make-up.   

I personally prefer to use this cream at night as it does not contain any SPF. Even without the SPF this one is defiantly a keeper.  I would like to try other products by Adovia as this one has totally met and exceeded my expectations.   I fully anticipate seeing even better results with continued use.   

I'd like to add a little advice to all the twenty-something's running around in the world today.  Trust me, when your in your upper thirties and freaking out because your knocking on forty's door, adding Adovia Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Cream now to your beauty regimen will be beneficial to your face and neck.  Plan ahead for what you know will inevitably take place.  Preemptive strike people!  Say no to wrinkles, age spots, crow's feet, and bags.  I'm not saying that women are not beautiful naturally, because we all are.  I'm not saying run out and get plastic surgery and/or Botox either.  I am saying that moisturizers, serums and creams are a much less evasive way to fight off Father Time and his bag of tricks!
