Sally Hansen *hard as nails* powerful acrylic gel

Has anyone had any experience with this????
I love love love LOVE having my nails painted, but unfortunately I am super rough on my hands and it always chips like in as little as a day! sometimes it will last up to 3 but most not so much :(

I painted my nails (french tips) and put this stuff on over them... although I've been reading and people say it works better as a base coat and then paint like normal... so idk...

We shall see! 

I wanted to get "Shellac" but couldn't find it :( so I will be trying this and seeing how it works! hopefully it will help my nails feel stronger and the polish will last much longer! 

I have friend who gets the Shellac manicure and it lasts up to 5 weeks for her!

I don't expect this to last 5 weeks, but I would love it if it lasted at least up to 1! lol :)

I will keep you updated! :)

As of right now, my nails feel stronger (If that's possible) and they're super shinny! I love it! And I hope it lasts! :)

Anyway, leave me a comment if you have had any experience with this stuff and how you liked it and how long it lasted :)

Have a fabulous day!

Perfect Homemade McDonalds Carmel Frappe Recipe!!!!

O yes you read that right! :)

A homemade McDonalds frappe recipe that actually tastes like the real thing!!! :)

Just look at this goodness! Are you drooling yet?!
These are your ingredients... Milk, some kind of instant coffee, latte, or in my case cappuccino powder, sugar, and some coffee ice cubes (the coffee ice cubes are made by just pouring freshly brewed coffee into an ice cube tray and freezing it :)

BTW, this makes a size medium drink (16oz)

so one scoop of the instant coffee powder...
then add the ice cubes (depending on how strong your coffee is brewed will determine how many cubes you use... here I'm using 4 cause its not as strong of coffee, usually I use only 3)
Add your sugar, This is optional... I usually only add like a TBSP or so. It doesn't need much :)
add the milk till it reaches just under the 16oz mark you can see the line here...

if not heres the line with my finger. the 16oz line is just above my finger nail
You don't fill it all the way to the 16 oz mark or when it blends up it will be over the 16oz mark and won't all fit into your cup!

*the cup is just one I wash out after every use that I bought from McDonalds*

then blend it all up!
pour it into your 16oz cup...
add whipped cream and carmel and you're done!

O doesn't that look great!!!! Go enjoy!

If you like the mocha instead of carmel, try adding chocolate milk instead of just regular milk, or add chocolate syrup when you're blending it to give the chocolate flavor!

If you're like me and completely addicted to Carmel Frappe's from McDonalds but can't afford to drop a couple bucks on every 1, then this is the perfect solution! I went through a lot of recipes before I found this one! :) it's delish!

Anyway leave a comment if you enjoyed this and have a fabulous day!
