The Nail Files: Star Power

Hey everyone!  Recently I decided to remove my acrylics from my nails, so I could start doing my own nails for the summer. YEAH!  Also, I got tired of going to nail salons only to be waiting for long periods of time, so I bought the Red Carpet Manicure Pro Gel Kit.  I'M IN LOVE!  I used my gel kit for the first time last week and really liked my gel nails, so much so that I went back earlier this week and bought 3 more gel polishes.  Below is a photo of my Star Power gel manicure ;)

I received several samples of Kushyfoot foot covers and fell in love with all three sets.  My favorite was the Lace Foot Cover, not only was the foot cover cute, but it was easy to put on and I loved how my feet felt with them on.  I was able to wear my pumps a little longer without my feet hurting.  So, go ahead and try Kushyfoot you'll definitely enjoy them, like I did.
