Dipwell Nail Kit & $10 off

I am not one of those people that gets a manicure every two weeks, not even every month. Actually the last time I got my nails done at the salon was when I was in my sisters wedding THREE years ago.

I’m more of a paint my nails once every blue moon and then chip away at the polish throughout the day kind of gal.

Well, I got the Dipwell Nail kit for about $42. I used a $10 off coupon, you can get the coupon here. I am super happy with it… so I thought I would share. This is basically an acrylic nail dip kit that is simple to do. I wear my nails for about 2-3 weeks before I redo them. I have always taken them off because I wanted to try a new color- I’ve never had mine fall off. I am a Mommy of three, so these nails really get worked. They always stay glossy and never chip on me.

The kit comes with everything you need:

– Bond

– Base

– Activator

– Sealer

– Brush Softener

– 200/280 grit foam buffer

– 100/180 grit nail file

– Double-sided wooden cuticle pusher

– 6 or 3 color powders – the color shown in my pictures is CL62 (classic dip color 62)

I did the build your own kit and decided not to get the Base and Finish dip powder… I used my sister’s one time and didn’t notice a difference.

I used a $10 off coupon, you can get the coupon here. Also shipping is free over $35. So I purchased a build your kit and got four dip powders, this brings the total up to about $54, then I used the $10 off coupon to get free shipping. This brought my total to around $44 with tax.

Preschool Craft- Puzzle Christmas Wreath

Christmas is just around the corner and I will use every moment crafting with the kiddos. Decorating the tree can be cheap and fun with everyday household items and a quick trip to dollar tree.

For this project you just need some glue, puzzle pieces, green paint and sparkly pipe cleaners (or something to make a bow).

My son is four years old and absolutely loved glueing the puzzle pieces in a ring. He was able to do it himself, with a little guidance. We let the puzzle ring dry over night and painted the wreath the next afternoon. Top it off with a sparkly bow and it is ready for the Christmas tree!

We used some cheap paint that is meant for kids. We found the best coverage painting on the cardboard side. You can spray paint the back of it (where the puzzle image is) if you want, but we kept it for character.

I absolutely love crafts like this, especially for Christmas because these are the types of ornaments that create memories for years. I will write the year on it in sharpie as well. Such a quick craft that was perfect for my preschooler.
