My Find of the Day!

Ladies, I found what may be the new revolution in nail polish.  Incoco claims to be the answer to the spills & smears of messy nail polish bottles.  These self-stick 100% nail polish strips are applied directly to the nails with ease and no mess.  It's a base coat, a color coat and a top coat nail polish all in one.  The company claims that the polish will last 14 days.

So anyone who knows me, knows that I am thrifty and all about do-it-yourself and saving money - just check out the size of my coupon wallet.  So I decided to test the product out.  The lady at the kiosk grabbed my attention and this time I was swayed because I have heard of the product before but never seen it.

She showed me how to apply the product and I was a little skeptical because I'm not very good with D-I-Y.  You would know if you've seen me wearing my self-applied eyelashes. lol.  All you do is find the "sticker" that fits your nail size, remove the film cover and the backing, and stick it to the nail and smooth.  You can easily remove the excess by filing it off.  It seemed easy enough so I decided to try it.  I purchased 4 manicures for $30.00 including two French.

So I stuck them on today.  It was quite simple.  There is no wait for drying time and they look really natural.  We will see if the company lives up to it's 14 day claim.  You can check out their website at  From their website, you can purchase them for about $7.99 each.  They come in a host of colors including French Manicures and colored tips.

Brides, the French Manicure is perfect if you are trying to save money on yourself or at least your bridesmaid.  Don't forget to get your party favors at

Day 2:  The nail polish is still there, still looks natural however it is starting to chip at the very tips on some of the nails.  I still think it's worth it but we will see by day 24.  I wonder is adding a clear coat will help it to last longer.

Day 4:  Sorry ladies, I missed day 3 but so far everything is still pretty much the same.  There are a few flaws in my once perfect manicure but I think it is holding up slightly better than one from the nail shop.  I still think the cost is worth the money.  I always hated painting my nails because it chipped so quickly and would spend a great deal on OPI polish expecting it to last longer.  Let's see if we make it to day 14.

Day 6:  This definitely won't last a day.  I have a moderate amount of chipping and a lot of cracks.  This product will not live up to its 14 day claim as the manufacturer states but I still like the idea of the product.  It's so much easier attempting to apply nail polish from the bottle.

Day 8:  The product does not live up to its 14 day promise.  It is time to remove it off my fingers.  I do like the product however it lasts about as long as regular nail polish does, just without the mess.  I might add that I'm a mother of a 3 year old and an 8 month old so my hands are constantly at work.  I will update you when I try out the French manicure.  Brides, I would check this product out.  It's supposed to last a little longer.
thanks for look!

10 Great Birthday Party Places for Kids in the Washington DC Area

So it happens to me every year, actually twice a year since I have two boys.  I wait until the last minute to start planning because I have no idea where to hold their birthday parties.  If you are like me, you prefer to keep people out of the house.  For someone like me it is easier to pay someone to set-up, host, entertain and clean-up.  That way, everyone can pack up and go home without a hassle. While searching online I found a host of unique places that just never come to mind when I'm trying to figure what to do for the kids.  These are in no particular order but I went ahead and compiled a list of my top 10 favorites within the DC, MD and VA (DMV) area.  Feel free to add your own in the comments section below: Backyard Parties:  If you don't want to spend the cash to rent a venue and you have the space in your backyard, I recommend GigMasters .  With GigMasters you can book the services of a clown or magician, rent chairs, tables or even a bounce house.  You t

Bride's or Groom's Name First on Party Favors

When you are planning a wedding there is a lot more to worry about than just ordering your supplies and decorations.  Just like every step of the wedding, there are rules of etiquette on wording for the bride and groom's name. So you may be wondering what name format to use on your  party favors , wedding d├ęcor, invitations, etc.  Is it the Groom's name or the Bride's name first?  First and foremost, I must mention, it is your wedding and your day, so you can do whatever you want to.  However, tradition or custom states a particular order as to whose name goes first. American custom or tradition states the name of the bride precedes the groom's name on any printed items.  So if you are known as "Brian and Sarah", your napkins in this case will be "Sarah and Brian", with Sarah obviously being the bride.  The same applies if you are using  initials or a monogram . So again, you are S&B.  When adding names to party favors, supplies and  deco

My Microblading Experience: Will I do it again?

So I decided to try microblading on my eyebrows. As a side note, if you plan on having it done for your wedding  or other event , I recommend getting the procedure done no less than 3 months before your event.  After scouring the internet and watching countless Youtube videos and checking out Instagram photos, I became obsessed with this new beauty craze. For those of you who aren't familar with microblading, it is a type of permanent makeup for your eyebrows.  Your eyebrows are tattooed with permanent ink.  The ink is deposited under the skin, just like a regular tattoo.  Instead of a tattoo blade, microblading uses several needles formoing a blade to cut the skin.  The result is hairlike brush strokes cuts on the skin which are then filled with your choice of colored ink.  While this is a form of permanent make-up, just like any tattoo, touch ups are needed so it's not a one time permenent thing. If you are like me, before I got the procedure, the main thing you proba
