I have a new (to me) product that I would like to share with you all today. The product is called NAILSavers and it does just what the name suggests, it saves your false nails from yellowing, color fading, drying, and lifting caused by UV exposure in tanning beds. What an awesome invention, right? I have used false nails and tanning beds before, and for any of you that use them too, this is a great product for you.

Here is a little bit about NAILSavers:

NAILSavers™ is proud to announce their 10th anniversary serving the indoor tanning industry. The company’s longstanding relationship with salon owners dates back to the late nineties when they unveiled their flagship product NAILSavers™.
NAILSavers™ are a remarkably handy, reusable nail cover system that completely protects all types of nails from the ravages of UV Light, especially while tanning indoors. The NAILSavers™ reusable system is constructed of soft, durable (latex-free) PVC with powerful UV inhibitors.
Over the past 10 years NAILSavers™ products have become a trusted brand that can be found in tanning salons from coast to coast.
NAILSavers™ is the brainchild of company founders Chris Scheurn and Eileen Allen. The company’s flagship product NAILSavers™ was created out of necessity. “Chris and I are avid tanners and over the years discovered that our passion for tanning took a toll on our nails. We created a simple but effective solution to maintain our nails without interfering with our tanning.” Says Eileen Allen. After the success of their core product, the company has also created TOESavers, FACESavers and HAIRSavers, designed exclusively for indoor tanner.
For more information on NAILSavers products visit them online at

I was kindly sent a product sample for review. Each package of the NAILSavers comes with 11, which I found to be pretty handy in case you lose one. I liked that they were bright pink for a couple of reasons, one I like bright pink and second, if dropped it would easily be spotted.

Basically they are little plastic protective caps for your fingertips. I tried them all on and they fit very nicely on my tips. None were too tight or too loose. However, they do have other options for making them fit, either by turning them sideways and putting them on if they are too loose.

NAILSavers shown worn with them put on sideways.

Or if they are too tight, taking a pair of scissors and cutting a small slit on the side. After I put them on I gave my hand a good shake, just to see how well they stayed on, and they all did with the exception of my pinky one, however, I don't foresee anyone needing to shake their hand that vigorously while tanning.

They are priced pretty reasonably at $15.00 per pack. You might find these for sale at your local tanning place or nail place, but you can order them direct from NAILSavers.

Not only do they offer these for your nails, but they also have some designed for your toes too! I also see available FACESavers, which is much better than just using a towel to cover your face during tanning. You can check out all their other products on their website


I got a really sweet email from a reader today sharing with me pics of her Halloween inspired mani and pedi. I thought it would be a great idea to share it with you all, especially since I am trying to make my current mani last until Halloween, so I have no new pics. I really like her stickers, aren't they too cute? I included what she said she used for each mani.

on my nails:
OPI Here today Aragon tomorrow and nail stickers purchased from ebay, top coat NYC shiny top coat and OPI text me text you

on my toes: Petites in mango, KISS black w/glitter nail art brush and nail stickers purchased from ebay.

Thank you so much for sharing these with me :0 Happy Halloween!


That's how I sent my son to school this morning. They are doing a Vocabulary Parade at school today and after the teacher talked to all the kids to find out what their costumes would be, gave them each a word that would fit in with their costume. My son decided to tell the teacher he was going as a cowboy - uh, what?? Am I missing something here from the hooded robe, jason mask and bloody sword - is that the new cowboy?? Of course the kids were not allowed to wear scary masks or bring fake (or real for that matter) weapons of any kind - so his costume was down to just the hooded robe. I have nothing "cowboy" for him to pull that off, so after a trip to walmart I got a face painting kit in camo. Luckily I did find a camo dog tag to really tie the costume all together with - lol! Thank goodness he is still in 1st grade and matching isn't a big deal . . . .yet. After taking pictures this morning, he gave me strict orders that they better be on my blog today - So here is what I sent my son to school looking like this morning:

We forgot to get the cowboy themed picket sign in the picture, whoops!


Saw this at the book store last night and thought it was pretty darn cute! Brandi - you need to carve this pumpkin!!!


Hey girls, wanted to share something with you off the topic of nails, but just as good .....FOOD! I love to cook about as much as I like to do nails, as most of you know. My mom told me about a really good food website that she has been reading called The Pioneer Woman Cooks. Ree Drummond is located here in Oklahoma and her website is a really good mix of cooking, funny writing, wonderful pictures and last, but not least, really good food. I mean when I saw these

(Click pic for recipe)

I KNEW I was hooked! I mean how good do those look? I am a huge bread and butter fan so these are right up my alley, plus they are made with Rhodes frozen bread dough, so they are super easy too!

Anyway, while checking out her website I find that she just did a cook book, The Pioneer Woman Cooks - Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl, and is going on the road to do book signings, and she was going to be at a local bookstore here in Oklahoma City last night. So Mom, Little and I head to Full Circle bookstore to get cook books and get them signed. We were NOT fully prepared for how many people turned out for this. I mean I was in complete shock! Take a look at the line:

This was taken about half way down the hall, and if you look close you will see that line of people goes all the way up the left hand side of the pic, which leads into the book store where the line continues to the table where Ree was seated.

The is looking the other direction to the other half of the line.

Little was shocked , too I guess! lol

And yet the line keeps going and going and going!

On out way out of the book store, I did snap a picture of Ree at the table posing for a picture with a fan. Needless to say we didn't wait in the line. We did go across the street to the mall and waste about 1 1/2 hours time letting the line die down. The line never died down! When we came back at 8:30 the line was still just as long.

Either way, my foodies, check out her website it is full of interesting stuff and wonderful food :)

Well these are my Halloween themed nails I did last night and I love them. I know I have sort of done these before (not exact) but I haven't done them in these colors and not a full color mani. Anyway I used one yes ONE coat of my TiNS - The Saturn for the base. Then I painted on red french tips using Super Star - Walk the Red Carpet (kudos for NOT naming this some version of Ruby Pumps). I really like the dark look of the red glitter tips, it adds a little something without being bright red, which I like. Then just to add some more bling I painted one coat of PA - Q9 over the whole nail. I stamped the skulls on and placed red dots for the eyes. I love the chunkiness that the PA added to this look. I am probably going to be wearing this for at least two days, maybe more.


Hey peeps! Just thought I would share a few photos from the Halloween party with ya!

Let's kick it off with none other than my girl Dinky taking her turn with the "Mrs Roper" wig:

Ricco even gave it a go! lol

Little looks really creepy I think. I also think he looks like Rocky Dennis from The Mask.

My sister's house all gussied up for the party:

I loved how these pictures turned out!! It looks really frightening :)
