Affiliate Post: Vinyl Sheer GeoNETric

As I mentioned in my last post, BellaHoot (clicking will take you to my affiliate link) now has four different lines of nail strips.  Our second line to be introduced was a no-heat vinyl.  As you may have guessed from other of my reviews, I am a fan of the major vinyl company, and have tried some of their no-heat strips.  I have to say, I am so far liking the BellaHoot ones better.  Aside from a little trouble getting the backing off, these went on lickety-split and have now lasted perfectly through a day of scrubbing the kitchen.  Now, I do still have some Jamberry one with these; the polish I used underneath is their High Noon lacquer.

Affiliate Post: Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support - Stripes

BellaHoot (clicking will take you to my affiliate link) now has four different lines of nail strips.  This mani is from our nail sticker line and can only be found in the Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support set.  $3 from the sale of each of these sets is donated to Share Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support, Inc.  This is reason enough to buy these, but also I loved how easy they went on.  These are true double-ended strips, and the end I did not use on the pinkie and ring fingers have blue stripes.
  The nail stickers are a little more fragile than our other lines, so I recommend two coats of a good quality topcoat (I like Julep Freedom).

Liberty Land

Time to use another of Color Street's awesome patriotic strips!  Liberty Land is a fun red-white-and-blue glitter print that reminds me of fireworks.  I had some Freedom Calling left over from my Memorial Day mani, so I used those as accents.  I store my unused strips in a nail humidor, and some of the Color Street ones just don't hold up as well as other brands, but with a little heat, I had no trouble applying the accents, although I really did need a top coat.  If you are interested in Color Street, drop a comment below and I can hook you up with an awesome, professional consultant or two.

Toe Post: It's Tricky

I recently painted my toes with some of Jamberry's TruShine gel in Forever Young.  I love the sparkles in it and how easy it was to use the gel system.  After a week, though, I wanted to spice things up a bit, so I layered It's Tricky, one of Jamberry's Skinnies (thin, no-heat vinyl wraps), on my big toes.  I love how the colors in It's Tricky pulled out those same colors in the glitter in Forever Young, especially in the clear sections of the wrap.

Fashion Statement

I've talked about Inococo before.  If you are wanting to try their products but wanting to spend under $10, I recommend trying their Coconut line, which is sold exclusively at Walmart.  Being about half the price of their Color Street line, these are a little thinner and only come with 12 strips instead of 16.  I am currently wearing Fashion Statement.

Atlantic Mist

One of the most well-known brands of nail wraps is Jamberry.  Unlike nail strips, these wraps require heat to apply.  They come in a variety of different finishes, and some finishes are easier to apply depending on your nail shape.  These Atlantic Mist ones have a metallic finish, which is harder to put on my curvy nails, so these took a little more patience to apply.  These wraps have retired, but you can find a who slew of fun ones on their site.  Leave me a comment if you need to be hooked up with a rep.
