Helloo fellow bloggers and new followers, if you haven't yet erase me from your blog roll I want to say Hi!!
I know I have been away for a while.
I am back with some news, what started as a beautiful hobby now is my bussines and my greatest passion, I enrolled to school last summer following a dream, and just got my Nail Technician licence from the Ohio State Board of Cosmetology, I am over the moon!.
It has been a long road full with joy, fun, frustration and some tears too. Thanks to all my fellow bloggers for your comments about missing me.
I hope everybody is doing well, miss you girls too, now I am going to catch up with all the reading. ^_^.
The pic is Orly Fancy Fucshia, there is not more pretty color for summer I think ;).
Hola a todo mundo estoy de regreso, ahora ya con mi licencia profesional como manicurista, espero que todo mundo este bien , y yo feliz de estar por aqui.
Saluditos y besis Arie.

I had the chance to try the new Sally Hansen Effects, I know you girls were intrigued as I was in finding out how they perform.
Well it took me around 2 hours to do both hands, the result was very nice, but hubby told me I can do the same look with plain glitter nail polish ^_^.
I set up my work area, sat at my manicure table-lamp as close as I could to warm up the strips and my fingers, I think some heat is good as it gives them some stretch, but you have to be careful, too much heat can also break them, because they kind of melt :(.
I chose the Bling- It- On design which I thought was going to be like metallic foil paper covered with glitter yay!, but was surprised to find out that they were just a layer of thin plain pink glitter polish.
No surprises here , the box says" Real Nail polish strips" ( I have to remove the minx word from my head) .
The polish strips look a little transparent , but ones in the nail doesn't look transparent at all.
The final result was very pretty and eye-catching as the very pretties pink glitter nail polish, was very difficult to capture with my camera, I took so many pics :(, but they don't do justice.
It is much prettier than it looks, and very very shiny!.
I have to say that I put top coat only on tips to somehow seal the strip, I had some trouble making them stick at the tips of a few fingers, and I didn't want to waste my almost 10 bucks to see them peeling the second day :( no way Jose! ^_^.
Also make sure to clean well the nail plate with some nail polish remover without-oils, to make sure you have a non-oily clean nail bed, I used zoya nail polish remover as a prep and clean.
Today it's the second day , and I am reporting they are still very nice , did the dishes, washed my hands several times yesterday and today and still in good shape :).
I will keep them as they are, and I will report to you how many days they can last on me.
Now my little list of pros and cons for you( my personal experience, and honest opinion);
They are very pretty , they come in several designs, all very fashionable.
If you found them BOGO (for buy one get one free), get them!.
Easy" if you practice and have a steady hand", need to place them very in the center to cover all nail bed uniformly .
Expensive (9.99 plus tax) for 16 strips, so only one mani (what?) for a (box) set.
They came in 6 sizes, the smaller size was too small for my pinky.
The instructions that came with the box are bad.
Work in a warm area, like close to a lamp
Avoid touching the strips with your fingers on the side that make contact with your nail bed, I used a pair of long tweezers, but at the end it didn't work very well so I ended using my fingers just to hold the all strip from the very end just to place it centered .
If you think they are super easy and fast to apply the first time , they are not, so make sure you have plenty of time :).
Thanks for visiting and I wish all my fellow bloggers and readers a Happy New Year!!!
Hola chicas y chicos,
El dia de hoy les muestro como se ven puestas las tiras de Sally Hansen Sallon Effects, las cuales se ven lindas, aunque un poco tardadas en aplicar, que les parece el resultado?.
El post en ingles es un poco largo, asi que si tienen alguna duda en espanol porfa envienme un emial y les explicare mas ampliamente, la clave esta en aplicarlas calentadas para que se extiendan mejor a la una, por lo que use mi lampara de mi mesa de manicure como pueden ver, tambien eviten tocarlas con las manos por la parte de el pegmento.
Punto malo;Traen solo 16 tiras por lo que solo sacaran un solo set :(.
Punto bueno; Puestas se ven hermosas ^_^, si las encuentran en barata no duden en comprarlas.
Gracias por visitarme y que tengan un Feliz y Maravilloso 2011!!

This is a quick post to let you know that yesterday I found a brand new untouched display of the New Sally Hansen Salon Effects at my local Walgreens yay!.
So it is official they are out for sale!, so don't forget to check them out.
I was always curious about minx nails so this is a great alternative, we will see how they perform.
They retail fot 9.99 and they are atbuy one get one 50% off, so I've got this two :), Bling it on (pink glitter) and Laced up (lace) .
I just open the boxes, and it wasn't easy as the label just doesn't open right, and I ended up destroying the clear film using a knife s you can see:(.
Also the first impression is they smell strong it's not a nail polish smell more chemical thing :( weird.
Anyway, as you can see they are so pretty and there are lots of designs, I am sure we will be finding pics of displays very soon.
Click HERE if you want to check the final look of the Bling-It-On (pink glitter), on my nails.
The last pic is from my swap with Renee from You nailed it! ^-^ essence goodies, and my first magnetic polish, sweet :), love the lovely card she sent me.
Thanks for visiting, and I wish you all a wonderful and healthy 2011!

I have a small haul from Sally's using my 15% off coupon, and I had to get Savvy fc "Garland" ($3.99) probably the only jewel of this collection.
''Garland" It's a fabulous vampy green that I thought could have a dupe on my stash, but no ladies, there is not a dupe for this one at least that I know of.
Below pic in the sun.
For a quick comparison check the pics below of the closest ones I own, also I was wondering for a while if CG "Jolly Holly" could be a dupe for Sally Hansen "Emerald City", gladly found that nope, they all are unique.
pic with flash.
Check this month Sally's flyer, the Stripe Rites are on sale for $2.99, the asp acrylics are on sale too, so I bought the small liquid and clear powder to play with :).
I also found some Sally girl glitter for .79 cents yay ^_^.
Thanks for visiting!.
El dia de hoy comparto unas pequenitas compras que hice en Sally Beauty Supply, tenia mi cupon de descuentos mensual asi que lo use y no pude evitar comprarme el color "Garland" de Savvy femme couture, es un color verde vampiresco, muy lindo.
Hice una comparacion de los tres verdes mas cercanos que tengo para ver si podrian ser identicos y como pueden ver no lo son, los tres son unicos.
De izquieda a derecha China Glaze "Holly Jolly", Sally extreme wear "Emeral City", y Savvy ''Garland".
Chequen su local Sallys , tienen los Stripe rite en rebaja , encontre el glitter rojo de Sally girl por 79 centavos,y el asp acrylic esta en rebaja tambien, he comprado el liquido y el color tranparente para experimentar ^_^.
Gracias por visitarme!

This is Sally Hansen "Purple Gala" from the 2010 fall collection, the pics don't do justice, It's a deep purple base full of gold, copper and silver glitter that looks awesome under sunlight.
This color is so festive, and eye catching ^_^, can't stop looking at my nails.
I've read that there is a close color to this one, and it is Hard Candy " Mr Wrong", I don't own that Hard Candy but "Body and Soulbeauty blog" did a great comparison here.
Thanks for visiting! :)
