VARNISHTA SPOTLIGHT – CLARINS HAND AND NAIL TREATMENT CREAM

  

I’ve always been intrigued by hand and nail lotions because hitting two birds with one stone was always fascinating. A co-worker of mine introduced me to the Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment and gushed about how amazing it is. So of course I had to try it out and I fell in love. It makes your skin feel so soft and smooth and my nails look great as well. I just started using it so I will keep everyone updated. 

Comment below if you use this product or know any other treatments you gush over!

OPI SPOTLIGHT – COCA COLA COLLECTION

OPI TWO TO CELEBRATE COCA COLA COLLECTION

The 2014 OPI Coca Cola Collection is another one of my favorites. It sort of had to be- seeing that I am from Georgia and Coca Cola is a huge staple of my home state. So I was excited when OPI released a 2015 Coca Cola release of TWO BRAND NEW shades in the collection.

This Two to Celebrate pack I found a perfect full size portion of the collection. I love Visions of Georgia Green because it reminds me of one of the older empty coke bottles and that translucent green that shimmered in the light. Centennial Celebration has a brilliant silver sheen that would make anyone want to celebrate! I suggest you check out the Coca Cola Collection. It’s easier to get your hands on than the age old secret ingredient!

SEARCH & SEND – ALL GOLD EVERYTHING

I came across this photo on Pinterest and there was little to no help on where it actually came from. Does ANYONE know where I can get these from? I’m not sure if these are just press on nails or some fabulous polish I’ve never seen before- but I need this in my life. So I’m putting out a Search & Send for these. If you know where to locate them, just post their whereabouts in the comments below. I’d be forever grateful for the help.
