Happy Valentine’s Day, Bionic Beauties!
And… I managed to squeeze in a teensy bit of *me* time last night for a minimalistic St. Valentine’s manicure!
Base color is Sally Hansen’s Pat on the Black; and the bitty hearts are done in the new Sally Hansen Purplexed (which is AWESOME by the way!).
Hope you all are having a marvelous day.
Lots of hugs, pink cupcakes, and candy hearts,
P.S. Please, pretty please, don’t pick on my beat up, short, stubby nails. We’re in the midst of a home reorganization, helping some family move across the country, and re-sodding our entire yard. So I’m just happy they are painted. *grin*
My local CVS finally got the “new” nail center setup! I know these stations have been in larger city stores for quite a few months, but those of us in smaller towns have been patiently waiting.
Anyhow, after chatting with the manager (I’m in this store pretty much everyday so they know me), I snapped some photos for all the Bionic Beauties who haven’t witnessed these little nail islands of wonder!
Some of the brands displayed are: Cover Girl, Revlon, Nicole by OPI, Sally Hansen, L’Oreal, Kiss, Essie, Sensationail, Maybelline and Seche.
Does your local CVS store have the new nail center display?

This week’s Bionic Asks… Do you ever match your nail polish to your dress?
This weekend I am attending a semi-fancy dinner reception. Since most of my dresses were either formal, or had a Spring season feel (pale yellows or bright polka dots), I decided to take an older dress and alter it to suit the occasion. This dress is a dark, dark navy blue topped with semi-matte sequins. The toned-down sequins make it easier to wear and less blingy for this not-so-formal event.

And now onto the beauty portion…
Since I’ve had quite a bit of “downtime” this past month, I have been indulging in cheap frivolity- nail polish. My latest requisition is a bottle of Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri nail polish in Blazing Blue.
In the bottle this nail polish has green, turquoise and blue shimmer; but it’s not noticeable when applied. I was a bit saddened by this fact since it’s what really attracted me to the color in the first place.

This way my first foray into the Insta-Dri formula… Read on…
Upon my normal digging through the clearance beauty bin at Walgreens (usually it’s located on the back end-cap of the beauty aisle, but varies depending on store layout), I found a few bottles of this Sally Hansen Complete Salon nail polish in “Sea and Be Seen” for only $2.99!
