Pink, White and Blue Mani Easy Nail Art

 Hi guys! Today I have some really easy nail art to share! I started with Ciate Offshore for the base on each nail. On my pinky and middle finger, I added dots with China Glaze Dune Our Thing (fuschia shade). On My ring finger and thumb got some white dots from FingerPaints Paper Mache, and my thumb and middle finger got some aqua dots from Hard Candy Frenzy. Finally, I added some sparkle with China Glaze Your Present Awaits on my pointer finger. This mani altogether looks complicated but it's so easy! Just a dotting tool and nail art brush and you're done!

Smiling Bright with DenTek!

Hey guys! Today I have some awesome products from my friends at DenTek! As a dentist friend once told me, not flossing is like standing with your arms by your sides and having someone throw food at you! I am a fan of handheld flossers versus traditional floss, and so when I received these products from DenTek I was super pumped (yes, for floss!!).

First I tried out their Fresh White Floss Picks- that floss AND Whiten in one. They are excellent at getting tough food out with the added bonus of whitening.

I also tried out their Instant Pain Relief for Toothaches. I'm saving these int he event that I need one, but it's great to know that they are so handy and mess-free!

This was a product I actually have tried on my own, but I love keeping the floss picks + case in my purse for a *flossing emergency* :)

Lastly I tried out their Easy Brush cleaners. Also great to keep on hand when traveling to freshen you up!

If you've never tried these DenTek products, I would highly recommend them!

Beauty Brands Kansas City Grand Opening Event

Hey everyone! I have such a fun and exciting post to share today. Beauty Brands has been my go to since I've lived in Kansas City. They've always had a great selection of nail polish and products as well as beauty products, not to mention their yearly Liter Sale! So when the location on the Plaza was under construction, I was super curious to see what they would reveal. I was lucky enough this weekend to get a special tour of the new location and get a couple of awesome bonuses too :)

First of all, the logo and branding is redesigned with a new, modern look. From the storefront to the shopping bags, everything looks great!

They took over the store next door and expanded their salon services, offering many new spa services and a whole new blowout bar!

The retail section is completely redone and organized by type, with the addition of fragrance! They have a lot of exclusive brands that are typically only found at salons. One brand I was really interested in was KCO Colors, created by Beauty Brands. It's awesome to see and support a local brand making great produts.

I ended my tour with a complimentary blowout (thanks Jennifer!) and a goody bag complete with beauty products I was drooling over. Thanks again to the Beauty Brands team for letting me enjoy this special tour, and I encourage all of my KC readers to go check out the new location!
