Best Nail Treatment!

My friend Melanie gave me a bottle of Nailtiques Formula 2 (yes, there is a formula 1&3) and and said she's been using this for 10 years. It's nail protein in a bottle and I've been using it for a week. I put on a coat once per day on my fingers and toes. I now swear by this!!! I don't know where she got it (I'll find out) but I wouldn't be without it. My nails look perfect and they are strong and are growing so fast. Here are the claims and I back them 100%.

Treatment for excessive problems of peeling, softness, or deep split ridges. The protein immediately acts to help bond nails that are splitting or peeling. It also assists in strengthening the nail to grow long, strong and healthy.
Nailtiques Protein Formulas were created for different nail conditions. The salon tested formulations offering special combinations of ingredients, including hydrolyzed keratin and protein in combination with gelatin and calcium. The protein formula bonds the nail layers together, building a strong nail foundation resistant to peeling, chipping and splitting. Application: Apply daily. As nails improve, decrease application. Formula 2 may be worn alone or with color polish.

The Eyes Have It

Where do I start?? I've had dark circles under my eyes for a long time. Makeup artists have always told me that my eye area is way too dry. It never really bothered me until we had family Christmas pictures taken several months ago. When I went in to select the pictures, the photographer commented on how tired I looked in all of the pictures. It REALLY got me down; even though it was true. I decided to do something about it. I went to see a makeup artist I've been going to for 7 years. He's been telling me for years to use NARS Nourishing Eye Cream . I caved in and bought the expensive little jar. I use it every night and in the morning, I mix it with MAC Fast Response Eye Cream. That way, I am not going thru the NARS cream as fast. Here is my before and after. The pic on the left was one that the photographer thought I looked tired in. It maybe hard so see since it's a pic of a pic. After several months of using this FIERCE eye cream combo, my eyes look and feel tons better!! The combo costs a little over $100 but totally worth every penny and will last 4+ months!

Vintage Fisher Price Little People

Remember FP Little People?? Growing up, we had the house, the farm, the school, the record player. . . If you don't remember them, just watch this vintage commercial from 1972. I still want that airport! To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Little People, they brought back several of the original designs. They are smaller than the original but just as cute. They're only at Target and each set is under $15.
