Mosaic Effects

I recently tried Avon’s crackle nail polish. You apply one coat of the Mosaic Effects top coat on completely dry nail enamel and watch it break into a nice design; kind of looks like a leopard design. You have to apply the Mosaic Effects top coat fast, cause it dries quickly. It’s longwearing; stays on my nails for about a week. I had asked my cousin how the crackle nail polish looks on my nails and he said that it looks cool. It will be nice if they’ll have some more colors of this crackle nail polish in the future. I’m giving it a 7.5 out of 10.
This is how it looks on top of my nail enamel in Vivid Violet; I’ve used Avon’s Nail Experts UV Gloss Guard Top Coat on top.

My younger sister has a nice collection of rings, so I also took some pictures of some of her rings. I actually don’t wear that many rings at once; mostly only one or two rings.

I have lots of forms to fill in, which I want to submit by Monday. Hundreds of students along with me have crossed their study period, so the university had hired a consultancy bureau to teach us some leadership and management skills so we can be done with our study within the dispensation period. The forms take days to fill in, so I’ve put my thesis on hold for a few days, so I can resume with it without any obstacles. You ladies enjoy your week!

Beautiful hair of 2011

Hey beauties!
How was your week?
My week went well; busy working on my thesis and it feels good to see that I’m making progress. I love blogging, so this is also my feel-good factor.;) Someone whom I met this week after a long time, made a remark that I look more cheerful. I look at things in a positive way and I don’t have a problem with facing problems, that’s probably why I experience life in a cheerful way.;)
Today I’m blogging about my newest hair products.

 Damage Repair 3D Rescue Leave-In-Treatment
About this product          
The Damage Repair 3D Rescue Leave-In Treatment with fortifying nutrients is designed for dry or damaged hair.

The brochure ads
3 years of hair damage repaired in 3 days. Our leave-in treatment targets and repairs damage on every dimension – the surface, core and ends. 3D Rescue targets hair’s most damaged areas, strengthening hair’s internal, mending split ends and nourishing hair from within.
Instantly repairs 3 types of damage
      1.      CHEMICAL (color treatments, perms)
      2.      THERMAL (blow dryers, curling irons)
                    3.      MECHANICAL (combing and brushing)

What do I think about this product?
This Avon product is great; it’s the best leave-in treatment I’ve tried. It smoothens my hair and my hair stays frizz-free; it smells nice as well. I don’t really have damaged hair, but I had a few split ends. After having used it thrice, I didn’t see any split ends anymore. I had switched over from my Garnier® Fructis® Fortifying shampoo to my Damage Repair Shampoo and Conditioner after having tried this leave-in treatment once. I was afraid of trying the Shampoo and Conditioner of the Advance Techniques line, cause years back I had tried a shampoo of this line and my hair started falling off. Maybe they’ve improved the shampoos by now; the Damage Repair Shampoo and Conditioner works very good on my hair. Vitamins and nourishing moisture polymers help to strengthen and protect hair while reducing flyaways. It’s safe for color-treated hair and suitable for all hair types. This shampoo and conditioner makes my hair softer and I love the silky feel after having washed my hair, though I wouldn’t say that this is the best shampoo and conditioner I’ve tried. My hair is very long at the moment and I have thick hair, so I easily get frizzles. My hair stays manageable and frizz-free for one whole day with the Damage Repair 3D rescue when used together with the Damage Repair Shampoo and Conditioner. When used with my Garnier® Fructis® Fortifying shampoo, my hair stays manageable and frizz-free for two whole days. So the Damage Repair 3D rescue works better with Fructis® shampoo in my opinion. When you’ll order the Damage Repair 3D rescue from your representative you’ll get a free ‘Shimmering Compact Travel Brush’, which is decorated with rhinestones, but it’s of very poor quality. It broke the first time I had used it, but I managed to put the parts together; maybe I can still use it for a few times. The Damage Repair 3D rescue is much cheaper at Amazon, but you won’t get the free plastic travel brush together with it.

My score: a 10 out of 10!

Fergie is promoting the Damage Repair 3D rescue. The ‘Outspoken by Fergie Eau de Parfum Spray’ was Avon’s best-selling fragrance launch ever. Have you ladies tried the new perfume that Fergie is promoting? The ‘Outspoken Intense by Fergie Eau de Parfum Spray’ smells great. It’s a bold floral fruity fragrance.

Hope you enjoyed this post!
Sending you lots of love,
