these are changing my life.

In an effort to save money
and be frugal with the things I buy,
I do not get my nails done.
I adore having perfectly pretty nails though,
and usually am oh-so-tempted when I walk by the nail salon
on my way to JoAnn's & Michael's.
{Sneaky product placement, nail ladies, so darn sneaky.}

I also do not have the patience I'd like to,
so painting my own nails is somewhat of a struggle for me.
Waiting for them to dry is total agony
and I always seems to smudge a finger or two.
I also hate that the "at-home" manicure has chipped and cracked within a day or two.
All that hard work for nothing??!

Enter in the best nail polish solution
I've come across so far.

Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Color

line of nail color is amaze-balls. Seriously.
Here's why:
1. It's cheap! {think two or so bucks at WalMart}
2. It comes in a dizzying array of gorgeous colors! {I am partial to Cherry Red!}
3. It goes on so smoothly and perfectly in two quick coats.
4. It lasts and lasts and lasts!!!

Then wait about two minutes and slap on a quick coat of this:


It dries fairly quickly and makes your nails look
shiny & freshly manicured by a professional!
The combination of these two products is unmatched in my opinion,
and I didn't have to spend oodles of money to get my nails done.

My nails are going on a week now.
They still look slammin'!
Hardly a chip.
I'm in love.
And I love being cheap. :)
