Would you wear a nail patch?


Introducing these new, colorful, long-wearing stickers for the nails from Sephora!

Sephora Brand Nail Patches make it easy to be glamorous. The colorful strips add shine and brilliance to nails, with zero drying time or smudging—so you can stop using brush applicators and worrying about polish that runs or spreads unevenly and takes a long time to dry.

Just stick on the patches and go—it’s that easy. Select the appropriate size for your nail, pull off the clear protective strip, and place the rounded side at the nail base. Smooth onto the nail surface, and remove the surplus by folding the nail sticker under the nail. The excess easily tears away. Remove the nail patch with traditional nail polish remover.

I don’t know how I feel about stickers for my nails.  Seems very WT if you ask me.  Anyone have any success with a product like this?

Here comes the sun!


We are finally having our first hot streak of the year in Oregon with temps climbing close to 100 by the weekend. In my younger days I would have grabbed some oil and found a place to lay out and absorb all the sun I could. Now that I am a little older and my 31st birthday is looming only 3 days away I am much more careful about my skins exposure to the sun.

To keep from looking like the grandma on Something about Mary I am now trying to be vigilant to have all of my skin protected from the harmful UV rays while I am out enjoying the weather. I just found a great kit from Sephora with everything you need to keep your skin healthy this summer with some great travel sized products. A great way to try some different products to find what works the best for you before you go for the full sized. Even better $21.55 from every kit sold will benefit the Skin Cancer Foundation!


Sun Safety Kit ($87 Value)

What it is:
A collection of eleven travel-ready sizes of the best and brightest summer skincare products.

What it does:
Let the sun shine without a care this summer. Sephora prepares you for outdoor fun with the ample sun protection found in the Sephora Brand Sun Safety Kit. It’s packed with a travel-size sunscreen and skincare for the face and body.

What else you need to know:
The kit contains 0.05 oz Korres Natural Products Watermelon Sunscreen Face Cream SPF 30, a 0.25 oz Peter Thomas Roth Max Sheer All Day Defense Moisture Lotion SPF 30, a 1 oz DDF Daily Protective Moisturizer SPF 15, a 0.35 oz Cosmedicine Medi-Matte Oil Control Lotion SPF 20, a 0.17 oz Juice Beauty Green Apple Moisturizer SPF 15, a 1 oz Murad Firming Bronzer SPF 15, a 0.08 oz Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion SPF 55 PA + + +, six single-use packs of MD Skincare Powerful Sun Protection Pads SPF 30, a 0.17 oz Clarins Sun Wrinkle Control Cream Ultra Protection SPF 30, a 0.25 oz Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer SPF 15, and a 0.098 oz Tarte 24/7 Lip Sheer SPF 15, plus a UV indicator card, all in a limited-edition Sephora pouch.

100 percent of the net profits (that’s $21.55 from every kit sold!) will benefit The Skin Cancer Foundation. Sephora will make a total donation of up to $430,000.00 before 12/31/08. Supplies of the kit are limited and will be available from April through June 2008 or while supplies last.
