Introducing Colour Cure!

Earlier this week, my saucy Aussie friend Tali introduced me to Colour Cure, another product line from Jamberry, and I must say it’s pretty sweet!

Essentially, it’s three products in one—base coat, lacquer, and top coat. You apply one or two coats and cure it with the UV/LED lamp (which looks like a miniature igloo for your fingertips) for just over a minute and a half and voilà! Perfectly gorgeous nails. And no streaking! I rifled through paperwork, did a lot of craftwork and my nails remained perfect! (BTW I chose Firecracker: the photo below does not do it justice.)

Work It Sunday

Today is Work It Sunday. It is also Laugh At Sarge Getting Up To No Good Sunday, as he is kicking up dickens.

I have a gift package for a friend almost ready to go out in tomorrow’s post. Sarge decided to be helpful by knocking it over and dragging out the teddy bear that was in it for quality control inspection. He then tested the box to ensure that it would meet USPS shipping requirements by standing on it.

After that, he called a meeting with Maggie to discuss the quality of the new pet bed. She didn’t have much to say on that subject.

He is now snoozing happily with “his” bear, which will not be his bear for very much longer. I will eventually make him another one, the spoiled little guy.


So, laundry is washing, pedicure is drying (L’Oréal Steel Colour in 100 POW! Perle),


My ugly-ass feet.

and the Singer is pumpin’ cloth bowls and snappy bags, today in a shamrock print with a green lining. After that, the bear and pin, both of which Absolutely Must Get Finished Before I Go To Bed Tonight.

Next in the pipeline: basket liners for the powder room and master bathroom, Roman shade and shower curtain for the master bathroom, a shopping bag (view C), with this fabric


and then even yet still more cloth bowls and snappy bags.

And housework. Ugh. Tomorrow is Clean The Bejesus Out Of The Powder Room Day as I want to give it a mini-makeover. Pray for me to the Domestic Goddesses, if you will.

Kick Out The Jam(berry)s!

Like most women, I like having a nice manicure. Unfortunately, sometimes I don’t have the time or the money to maintain said nice manicure – not to mention the polish streaks left on paperwork I need to shuffle through, or beneath the light switches in my house (don’t get my husband started on that). So I settled for keeping my nails clean with or without a clear varnish, but from time to time would find myself wishing that I could rock crimson painted nails, or really sweet nail art.

Enter Jamberry.

Exit manicure envy!

My saucy Aussie friend Tali turned me on to Jamberry wraps earlier this year and I have to say they are fabulous. Their wrap design (over 500) themes run the gamut from seasonal and holiday to sports and hobbies to floral to incredibly cool graphic art! (I have Passport, Fire Engine, Curve Ball, and Fur Real). They also offer single-color wraps, and many of these wraps come in different finishes (matte, glossy, metallic, etc.).

They are amazingly easy to apply – they are heat-activated and you can use your hair dryer to prep them – and there’s no need for dry time either. Plus there’s no chipping, no streaking (which my husband is perfectly fine with LOL), and no chemicals.

You’re left with an awesome manicure that lasts at least two weeks! And if I can do it, so too can you J.

For signature style at your fingertips, visit Jamberry. You’ll love their products.

Now it’s time for me to kick out my Jams and get “Fur Real”!
