DIY Nail Art Makes Manicures Fun

I remember the days when manicures were fun. More often now, it seems like a burden and an expense when I look at my hands and go, Ugh, I need a manicure so bad. So, when browsing the drug store the other day, I was tempted by this package of nail gems by Fing’rs (creepiest…

Crave: Sally Hansen Nail Pen

We’re not sure if we actually do crave this, because it’s something we need to try. We are HORRIBLE at painting our own nails, which is why we go see Susan down the street from our office every few weeks. But it would be nice to save some bucks and be able to give ourselve…
