Influenster – Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure

I was lucky enough to receive another present from Influenster a few weeks ago and I was beyond excited to be chosen for this box. If you know me, then you know I have a love for nail polish so to be able to do a review on imPRESS Press-on manicure by Broadway Nails is really exciting.


imPRESS Press-on Manicure by Broadway Nails is the revolutionary way to achieve a flawless manicure in seconds. All you need to do is find the correct size, peel and press and you are done! It’s that simple. It took me about 3 mins to apply the nails. No lies!

I applied my nails Friday morning. I had to be out the door by 8am for work and I decided to apply then at 7:50am. It took a few short minutes to find the correct size, peel off the protective layer and then press on the nails. I am beyond hooked! Especially with the nails that I received.

Influenster sent me 2 imPRESS Press-on Manicure kits to use. I decided to apply the Disney Villains. The colour is just amazing. It look grey with a hint of purple depending on how you are looking at the nails.

My students were also in love with the way they look. They couldn’t believe that they were press on nails. In the beginning the nails felt slightly odd, but now I am so use to them I don’t even think twice about doing things. They are suppose to last up to a week so I guess only time will tell.

Tomorrow I have to work, so that will be the true test. Here’s hoping a nail doesn’t pop off while I’m working cash.

I received these products complimentary for testing purposed from Influenster.

Review: Nail Wraps From NCLA

I was recently contacted by the lovely Tiffany over at Nail Polish Canada and asked if I would like to review some Nail Wraps by NCLA.

NCLA is a fashion forward, luxury line available in high-end retail outlets and boutiques and retail for $16 each.

I received Leather and Lace and Brillapalooza. Included in the package with the nail wraps was a nail file; which I should add was a nice surprise.

Nail Wrap Package

This was my first time using Nail Wraps and I was surprised at how quick and easy the application process was. I’ve always been a little skeptical with wraps, but I was pleasantly surprised.

I choose to place my nail wrap over top a colour polish because I don’t usually wear bare nails. I was a little skeptical at first if the wrap would stick to the actual polish but so far so good! I’m on day 3 of wearing them and they haven’t lifted or peeled off. I did apply a top coat over the nail wrap’s per the instruction to seal it on and add shine.

I think these nail wraps are a great addition to any manicure. It’s a great way to dress it up or create a new look.

Influenster – L’Oreal Mystery Box Reveal “Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser”

So I posted about receiving an Influenster L’Oreal Canada Mystery VoxBox and well the reveal has happened!

Influenster Mystery Box Reveal

I received FULL sized products of *NEW* Garner Fructis Damage Eraser.

  • Shampoo – Reconstructs and preserves strengths for strong hair that looks rejuvenated
  • Conditioner – Reconstructs and preserves strength for strong hair that looks rejuvenated
  • Split Ends Bandage Serum – Each drop helps to prevent split ends and reconstruct and preserves hair strengths
  • Strength Reconstructing Butter – Rich, indulgent butter is designed to intensely reconstruct hairs strength for strong, rejuvenated and shiny looking hair.

I was not expecting nor have I ever used hair butter so I was pretty surprised and loved being able to try it out.

The first thing I noticed about the products is the smell. Oh wow, do they ever smell good. Like really good. The samples smelt good but I seriously can not stop smelling the butter. It’s to die for. Someone needs to make a candle in this scent.

You must be wondering how the product delivered? Did it repair my damaged hair? Well I only used it for a week so I can’t be 100% sure that it did, but I did notice that my hair was shiner and slightly stronger. I straighten my hair constantly so it was nice to see that it didn’t look as abused as it has in the past.

Now that I have the full size products I will continue to use them. Hopefully I notice a difference. The samples came at a great time because I was just about to start a new bottle of shampoo. I usually mix it up and just get what ever is on sale or what I can get for next to nothing with coupons so I can’t wait to use this product more and not have to use anything from my stock pile for the next few months.

If you would like an invitation to become an Influenster just let me know. (must be Canadian)

I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Influenster – L’Oreal Canada Mystery VoxBox

Today I received my Influenster L’Oreal Canada Mystery VoxBox. I didn’t think I would be receiving this box because when I did the survey a few days ago it said I wasn’t eligible. So surprise surprise!

L'Oreal Myster Influenster VoxBox

Inside were 3 sample sized L’Oreal hair care products. 1 shampoo, 1 conditioner & 1 Split End Serum.

The awesome thing about this VoxBox is that in 1 week I will be receiving another box which will reveal the mystery brand of the full product line! I can’t wait to start using these products and do a review on them.

Review of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure #CSMTKO

A few days ago I received an email letting me know that I would be receiving the Sally Hansen #CSMTKO VoxBox to review. I was pretty excited about this because I haven’t purchased this brand of Sally Hansen nail polish. I’m not really sure of the retail price per bottle but I received 3 bottles to try out.

The colours I received are: Jaded, Pat on the Black and Red my Lips.
Sally Hansen Polish

Let me start out this review with the packaging, which I was not really impressed with. The nail polish bottle’s were just sitting inside some bubble wrap in a box. Jaded had leaked and froze to the bottle. Thankfully they were not cracked.


I decided to use Jaded first. I’m not really a fan of the colour, nor am I am fan of how many coats I needed to use in order to have the colour look right.

This is after 1 coat: Not impressed.
1 Coat

This is after 2 coats: still not impressed.
2 Coat

This is after 3 coats: almost there.
3 Coat

This is after 4 coats: I’m finally happy with this colour.
4 Coat

Total drying time was about an hr. I like to wait 10-15 mins between each coat so that it doesn’t smudge, especially if I’m doing multiple coats.

This is Red my Lips after 2 coats. I love it. Excuse the mess, I tried to clean it up as best I could without smudging it. The 2 coats were dry within half an hr and have a nice glossy shine.
Red my Lips

This is Pat on the Black, after 2 coats. I will probably do a third coat just to fix up the slight discolouration on my pinky finger.
Pat on the Black 2 coats

It’s more of a dark purple colour and has a very nice shine to it. I’m planning on leaving this colour on to see how it holds up over a few days wear. 1 of the benefits to the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure is that it is chip resistant, so only time will tell.

These products were received for testing purposes from Influenster.
