Let's talk nails...

I often think about writing reviews for some of the products I use - the ones that impact me strongly (positively or negatively, either way). But I never get around to actually doing that! ...Well, not true, I've done a few reviews on baby products on my blog :)

This review is about a nail product that I recently discovered... I love my nails; they are long and don't break too often. Usually I cut them relatively short, but that's where the care often ends - being a busy mom, I have absolutely no time waiting for a nail polish to dry! And let's face it, if you want a nice manicure that will stay there for longer than a day before chipping, you have to put on 2 coats. And if the colour is in the dark shades, you want to use a base coat + top coat. So that's 4 coats of polish that have to dry! What mother has got time for that? Not this one!

So the product is Sally Hansen 14-day Nail Shield:

Why I love it? Well, all you have to do it wash & dry your hands and then buff your nails. Then you peel off the backing (okay, this can be a little tricky, but not really) and stick it on your nail slowly and carefully making sure that there are no air bubbles. Cut off the excess and file away any little nits. That is all and voila, you got yourself a nice sheer and very even (no streaks) manicure!

Now, will it last 14 days? My guess is YES. Why only a guess - well, my nails grow so quickly that I cannot wear any nail polish for longer than 1 week before the bottom of the nail starts to peek through... It's a similar thing with this product - it's been 8 days and the only thing that's apparent is my nail grow. Other than that - no chips, no peeling off and no cracking! And I've washed my hair, scrubbed dishes and baby bottles.

8 days in
If you want a quick and lasting manicure, this is a product for you!
It comes in 3 different shades, so I will be buying it again :)
