Ingredients for a Great Lacquer Manicure

I thought I'd share some of our lesser known gems. They aren't sexy on their own, but they are the quiet ingredients to a great manicure!

Nail prep is so important, for every manicure, even "just" lacquer  It's important to clean the nail, especially after you use a lacquer remover! See that pretty pink tint? That means there are moisturizers that help your nails... BUT, they keep the lacquer from adhering correctly!

The smoothing base coat helps to provide a smooth surface and the barely white color helps your lacquer color to POP! Each coat dries in about 4 minutes, so by the time you finish your second hand, you're good to apply color.

When you uses more than 1 coat of lacquer, it takes a bit longer to dry, which increases the chance of smearing :( So... I recommend an ultra fast drying top coat and a quick dry spray combo to get you out the door with perfect nails!

I hope you enjoyed these tips to help you #PlayWithYourJams

Your hands tell the world about you... what do yours say?

"Your hands tell the world about you... what do yours say?"

So begins my part of "Unzipped: The Guide to Being Your Best Badass Self".  You'll hear my best tips for taking great care of your nails, how to split you manicure routine into manageable time bits and how to mix and match patterns to #PlayWithYourJams.

I'm very proud of my latest book!  Compiled by stylist and entrepreneur Myaann Payne, "Unzipped: The Guide to Being Your Best Badass Self" is meant to inspire, uplift, and motivate you to wake up each day and throw out what society tells you to be and start being the badass that is in you!

This book is for anyone who is struggling to find himself or herself, anyone that feels like they "can't do it" (because you totally can) and for those looking for inspiration through others to overcome obstacles to truly be the best person you can be!

What you will find in these pages are stories of triumph over health issues, real-life transformations, notes and tips from an artist's chair, how taking care of yourself TRULY matters, and how you can be your best badass self.

Talking to Kids About Death

Recently a child at our elementary school passed away.  In a local mom's group, there was a discussion about how to talk to our kids about it.  I thought I'd share my response with you all here.

My kids were 5 and 7 when our infant son passed away. Unfortunately, we had to deal with it suddenly and unexpectedly. Fortunately, I have gained much wisdom through this process.
  1. Tell the truth. Don't sugarcoat it, don't use words like "passed away" or "is no longer with us". As hard as it is for us as an adult to say, you need to say "she got really sick, the doctors did everything they could to help her, and she died."
  2. Depending on the maturity level of the child, they may still believe in magical thinking concepts. This means that they may not understand that death is permanent. Be prepared to discuss that she will not be able to be alive again.
  3. Older or more emotionally mature children may be beginning to understand the concept that death is universal. It can be helpful to explain that everything dies. Nature is a perfect place to illustrate this concept. Especially in the fall, leaves are falling off and dying. You can relate it to a pet that has died as well. They will ask you if you will die too, or if they will die too. Please be honest with them! Tell them "yes, we will all die someday."
  4. Although the concept of Heaven is fairly Universal, please remember that there are atheist families and telling them that God took their child or that the child is with Jesus can cause disagreements between kids. Please keep this in mind when you are explaining to your child. We used to tell our kids that every family gets to make their own rules on some things and that they have different names that they call things. Like our grandma is called Kiki, some people have different names for heaven.
  5. If your child is a boy, don't assume that he's not grieving because he's not crying. Boys often express anger or act out rather than crying. Also, boys are more likely to open up and talk during side-by-side activity. Play cars with them, a video game, watch a baseball game. Don't try to sit knee to knee and talk about your feelings.

Although we all hope to not have these conversations, they are inevitable.  I hope that these guidelines are a help to you!

Your winter holiday shopping list has arrived...

If you like to match your manicure to the season (or your mood!) then I've got great news for you!  The new styles from Jamberry are super fun and a great way to spice up your mani routine!

'Christmas Charm' shows off Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer with lovely jingle bells and evergreen holly for a sparkling holiday mani.  #ChristmasCharmJN  This would pair nicely with #FindersKeepersJN or #NotSoInnocentJN lacquer.

Sponsor a Blessing Bag!

Giving back is extremely important to me.

I'm putting together 50 blessing bags for a local cancer treatment facility. YOU can help by sponsoring 1 or 2 (or 4!) bags!

My family was in financial crisis in 2013, we ended up filing bankruptcy and almost lost our house. We did lose a vehicle and many other physical things. But, what we gained through that tough time was an appreciation for each other and for our community that held us up. When 2014 brought huge success and blessings with Jamberry, we made a vow to give back. The last few years I've been honored to donate 100% of my personal sales commissions to charity and families in need.

My perfect picks for manicures while traveling

When I travel, I like to us only a carry-on bag as often as possible. That can really cramp my style though, because so many of my favorite products are only available in larger sizes!

It's taken me a while to figure out what I actually need, and what I can safely carry on-board (without fear of it being confiscated by TSA! The horror of losing a bottle of Nourish one time still keeps me on my toes!)

So, I present the Jet-Setter bundle! 
I started with the Deluxe Tool kit. I've traveled with this kit dozens of times, with no problem! I think since the scissors are small and clearly part of a mani kit, it doesn't even raise an eyebrow. This kit is SO HANDY to have when you travel! The clippers are large and strong enough to handle tags and even open packages! The scissors are great for cutting tags off your clothes (everybody shops for something new before a trip, right? No? OK, just me then LOL!) and the crystal nail file keeps your nails nice and smooth after wrestling your way to your seat. :0

Next up are the Hydrating Removal wipes. These are water-based and amazing for removing wraps or lacquer. They have no smell, unless you choose the Peach scented ones shown here  I've literally removed my lacquer in the car on the way to the airport with no complaints from my husband! They are great for conditioning bare nails after a day of constant hand-sanitizer use too 

Quench is like a miracle product. I use it as lip balm (why is the air in an airplane sooooo dry?) and on my hands. It's also perfect for dry elbows, knees and heels - and I've even used it for a face moisturizer when I forgot to pack that - OOPS!) Plus, it's got a light scent and stays on for a long time.

The Cuticle Oil Pen is just a staple item in my bag! Adding extra nourishment to your cuticles helps them not become hangnails. You know what's not fun while you're traveling? Bloody, painful cuticles! OUCH. (Fortunately, your kit has cuticle nippers if you let it go too far!)

Introducing the Wonder Woman Collection by Jamberry!

Wonder Women Collection by Jamberry Wrap Giveaway!

I always encourage women to be the best version of themselves.  To me, this means embracing what I'm good at, and letting go of those things I'll never be good at.  I spent many years trying desperately to be the very best housekeeper, homeschool mom and housewife.  In fact, many of those lessons and struggles are captured in the archives of this blog!

me at age 3, in a costume made by my mom
What I've discovered more recently, is that I have many other things that I'm good at!  I am an encourager, I'm insightful, I'm really good at attraction marketing and sales.  I love to train, teach and speak.  I'm sought after as a mentor and educator.  I have a genuine connection with each of my children, I listen to them and they are each amazing people.  I can use my gifts to help shape them.  It's OK that my toilet doesn't sparkle.  It's totally fine that I'm not a gourmet cook.  I know what I'm good at, and I know my limitations, and I'm OK with both.  I think that makes me Wonder Woman.

Back in the saddle

Perhaps you've heard the adage "Get back in the saddle".  It's typically used to tell you to keep trying, not to give up because you failed or "fell off the horse".
