Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have Number 6!

For whatever reason, over the last year – my nails went from being strong and healthy to weak and brittle. I upped my vitamins, and headed to Target to find a solution for my unhealthy nails! I went straight for the Sally Hansen Complete Care line. I zeroed in on Complete Care Extra Moisturizing 4-IN-1 Treatment, which is a little miracle in a bottle! It fills the ridges, strengthens, improves growth and has a beautiful glossy shine!

I have used it both on it’s own, and as a base/top coat. I absolutely LOVE this product. It’s a bit on the spendy side (around $10) but it’s absolutely worth it. My nails stopped splitting and cracking, and they’ve been noticeably stronger!

This makes my Christmas Must-Have list because it’s such a great product. At around $10 – it would make the perfect stocking stuffer!


An additional perk is when you use it as a base/top coat, your polish lasts so much longer! I can wear fingernail polish for a week now before it starts chipping, and that’s quite a feat! This product makes fingernail polish last longer!

Complete Care Extra Moisturizing has everything that Complete Care Original has to offer PLUS an enriched complex of Avocado Oil and plant extracts that help hydrate, condition and restore flexibility to dry brittle nails. MORE! More »

I’m in love with Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri Top Coat

I never EVER have the time to let my nail polish dry, so I’m always on the look out for products that speed the process up. I picked up Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri - and I’m in love! It dries my polish in minutes! (It says 30 seconds, but that’s not true at all). Give it like 5-10 minutes and your nails will be completely dry.

And that’s not the best part. It’s also anti-chip, so your polish will look amazing for much longer! I painted my nails on Monday – and today there’s not one single chip! That’s quite a fete for me, I’m very hard on my nail polish. During this holiday season when you’re cooking and cleaning – and washing your hands more than usual – you can count on this product to keep your nails gorgeous!

I picked it up for under $5 at Rite Aid. You can find it at your local drug store!

60 second magic!

I was browsing Target and was pulled in by a display for Sally Hansen Insta-Dri nail polish and decided to give it a try. I painted my toes and really liked the brush it was wide and thin making application a snap.

Last night I decided to give the 60 second drying a real test and paint my nails right before bed.  A few strokes later I am done and I decide to do the unthinkable and touch my just polished nail and it was dry! I woke up this morning my nails look great not a single smudge. Sally Hansen I think I love you, can’t wait to get more colors!

Add a little sparkle to your summer!

I was just sent some samples of some great new products for summer and wanted to share my favorites.

My favorite from the new line is the Naked Beauty high lights cream cheek color. Its a great double duty product giving my cheekbones a little lift and the cream blush smooths on giving my cheeks the perfect flushed pink look.

Be summer-ready with Smashbox’s new Naked Beauty Summer Collection ($20-39)! From shimmering nudes to soft pinks, the collection is packed with nearly-naked shades for eyes, lips and cheeks. This summer, expose your natural beauty and create an ethereal, lit-from-within glow with these Smashbox essentials.

So Rodial Brazilian Tan has been a standout from me recent product reviews. Its one of those products you love so much you are scarping at the bottom of the sample to get every last drop. I just apply before my makeup it has a great tropical coconut scent and absorbs quickly. Then in a few hours my face has a great healthy glow I apply it every morning to my face, neck, chest and arms. It gives you a great healthy glow that makes everything look better and smells delicious!

Can’t make it in for a spray tan? Rodial Skincare allows you to get one from the comfort of your very own home! The Brazilian Tan line ($49) gets you the glow you want as well as nourishes your skin. Choose Brazilian Tan Light or Dark for an instant coat of color. You can also build up to that summer shade with Brazilian Tan Daily, which increases gradually.

A great and truly affordable primer, Sally Hansed Luminizing Face Primer gives you that little extra glow. I even wear it alone when I am in a rush and just need a little help with my skin. You will love how quickly it absorbs and how great your skin looks.

Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy’s Luminizing Face Primer ($9.95) will help you to shine and will emphasize your summer tan – faux or real! It smoothes and refines skin texture while hiding pores and fine lines. Micronized pearl creates a healthy glow when worn alone or as a smooth base under makeup. Skin-smoothing cork oak and olive leaf extracts nourish skin and boost radiance while vitamin E provides antioxidant protection.
