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*

New Year, New You: The Price of Sight

Happy New Year, Bionic Beauties!

Now that we are a few days into the new year, you’ve either made your resolutions; or blown the idea off. I polled some close friends over this past week regarding what types of goals they set for themselves each year. Mine was as simple as getting a new hair cut and color; but some friends were interested in getting healthy, traveling, and… Lasik. I’ve always been interested in Lasik since my vision is horrible which means overly thick lenses in my glasses. I’ve even had a few family members get the procedure with great results. Price has always kept it on the back-burner for me though.

And then I came across this price-to-cost comparison…

Interesting, right? I guess I never thought about the long-term costs of glasses. Off to save my pennies.

Stay Bionic,

by Bionic Beauty on November 14, 2012 · 1 comment

I’ve spent many an hour staring at the lovely (to me anyway) dark lip colors this fall.  I swear, the burgundies, maroons, and plums are following me – online, offline – I’m being stalked (without all the scariness).  Anyhow, if you love the idea and/or look of this autumn’s darker red-ish lip colors, you’ll probably enjoy this article from TB…
