*Review* China Glaze vs. NailsInc Nail Polish Spray – Video

I’m super excited to post this video of a recent product review I did for the China Glaze & NailsInc Nail Polish Spray.

This post may seem to be a bit out of the ordinary for me but I must confess…

I LOVE getting my nails done!  As a busy momma building a business, homeschooling, working out, and keeping a home, I just don’t have time to mess with my nails.

A few weeks ago, I saw an ad on Facebook about nail polish spray.  The add  featured NailsInc Paint Can and I was super hopeful to paint my nails more regularly in way less time!

I put on my detective hat and scoured the internet to figure out where to buy it.  I saw that it was supposed to be available at Sally’s Beauty Supply.  I jetted over to the nearest Sally’s only to hear that they hadn’t heard of it.  Whaaaa?!?! 3 days later, I went in again…nada.  Persistence is key to everything in life it seems because when I went

Persistence is key to everything in life it seems because when I went in the 3rd time, I got the manager and she gave me the lowdown of when to expect it.  So about a week ago, I went in and low and behold. . .

<cue angelic choir>

Nail polish spray was not only in, but there were 2 different brand options, China Glaze and NailsInc. I was all over it! I bought a couple bottles and decided to forego the respective base/top coats that are sold with the nail polish spray.

I tested our the China Glaze (Purple Shimmer) personally and NailsInc (Hoxton Market).  Here are our results. . .

So what do you think?  Have you tried the nail polish spray yet?

The Perfect Easy to Peel Hard-Boiled Eggs

Easy-to-Peel-Hard-Boiled-Eggs I hated peeling hard-boiled eggs, at least until I found out about this trick.

We tried all sorts of ways of getting the shell off of hard-boiled eggs.  Adding baking soda, baking eggs in the oven and soaking in ice water, and different cooking times.  We’d end up with half the egg being torn off with the shell.  9 times out of 10 we’d have mauled over eggs.

But our egg peeling woes came to end when one of Mark’s coworkers gave him the secret to hard boiling eggs.  The results perfectly to allow the shell to easily release from the egg. We’ve tested it out half a dozen times already and declare this method a winner.

So here’s how you get er done…

Perfectly Hard Boiled Egg

1.  Bring a pot of water boil.

Boiling-Water2.  Add the eggs to the boiling water with a slotted spoon, (or Mix N. Masher) and set the timer for 8 minutes.

Placing-Eggs-in-Boiling-Water3.  Cover the pot and let water come to a boil.

4.  Once timer goes off, you can turn it off and let the eggs cool on the stove for at least 20 minutes.

5.  Peel them up.

Peeling-Hard-Boiled-Egg

This is how I peel them and I think it works the best.  I crack one side of the egg and roll it along the counter as I slightly press down.  This will crack the shell all the way around and it’s super easy to peel off.

There you have it.  From people who obviously eat too many hard-boiled eggs.
