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 Incoco.com.  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 123wrapper.com.

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!

So you've decided to create a candy buffet for your next event.  Candy buffets are hip and now a popular trend for all ages.  Many brides/hosts are using candy buffets as an alternative to party favors.  But how much candy do you need?  As a general rule of thumb, 1/3 to 1/2 pound per guest.  This means that if you have 50 guests, you will need as much as 400 ounces or 25 pounds.  This estimate takes into account that some guests will take more and some may take less or none at all.  It's better to have too much candy than too little - imagine being the last person in line.  Having enough candy is crucial to making a buffet look good. So how much is 1/2 pound?  1/2 pound is equivalent to approximately 8 ounces depending on the size of the candy.  Measurements depend on the size and density of your sweets.  Below we've included a handy chart to give you a better idea.  CupsSmall Candy OuncesMedium Candy OuncesLarge Candy Ounces1/4c2oz1.5oz1oz1/32.752.521/243.52.52/35.54.533…
