Special Days in May ~ A Gift Review

 While all of us are desperately waiting for Spring to bring forth it's flowers and warmer weather, May is coming along fast and furious with many "special days" to look forward to.  

Of course everyone knows it's Mother's Day on the 8th of May, but did you also know that we celebrate Nurses Day and Teachers Appreciation Week in the same month?

Mother's Day can be a time to give her something that she can really use to pamper herself just a little bit!  Instead of the usual chocolates, flowers or cards, give her the gift of Color Street and let mom indulge herself with a little self-care.

Teachers can be undone with all the coffee mugs and chocolates as well.  Why not think outside the box and give them some fun for their fingertips.  I can just see the little eyes wanting to check out the fancy nails on their favorite teacher.  

Nurses who are run off their feet with caring for others, could also use a nice little pick me up.  Color Street Nail Strips are perfect!  While your favorite nurse is on a coffee break, she can do up her nails in less than ten minutes.  A little self care help for the ones who care for everyone else before themselves.  

Your hands are always visible to everyone and when your nails are nice and polished they make a statement without having to say anything out loud.  It says, " I care about myself too!"

If you are anything like me, I don't like to sit waiting for things to be ready.  Color Strips Nail Strips are ready and done in less than 10 minutes.  Once applied, you can continue on your day and accomplish all the things that need doing.  No waiting for nail polish to dry and once applied, they last for at least 2 weeks.  No cracking, peeling, smudging is going to happen, unlike liquid nail polish!

Until I found these Color Strips, I hated doing my nails.  I just could not seem to get a good application happening.  One coat would go on great and the second coat would get all smudged.  Frustration was the name of the game in my case.  NOT anymore! 

What I really like is that with these Nail Strips you can mix and match or mix and contrast as you like.  One set of strips are enough to do a full manicure if you have long nails, or two if your nails are kept on the shorter side.  Just make sure that you seal the package after you are finished with the Strips.  A curling iron will seal the package nicely until you need them again.

Color Street Nail Strips are only available through a Stylist and they are not hard to find. So if your Teacher, Nurse or Mom really likes this gift, she can order for herself after having used your gift!  They are affordable and a really nice gift that says so much.

If you are a little bit artistic, you can do so much with these Nail Strips by thinking outside the box (so to speak).  

When you have a great product, people begin to notice and the awards for excellence start to roll in.  So it is with Color Street!  They have been awarded the Best in Nail Care!  Check this out:

  1. I have been so tempted to try the Color Street Nail Strips! There are so many beautiful colors and designs to choose from. I stopped painting my nails decades ago. I simply did not have the patience to let me dry. I was always thinking about what I needed to do next and ready to move on to it. The nail strips seem like the perfect solution for me, and many others. The hard part: which color to try first!

    1. Cynthia, I was thinking about that earlier when I posted this and I should send you some samples. I was looking for your snail mail address and was going to surprise you, but alas other things got in the way of my quest. PM me and I'll send you some samples to try out! You will love them I'm sure!

  2. Olivia, as you know, I am a big fan of Color Street nail polish strips and wear them all the time. In fact, I have a huge hoard of them by now that I enjoy mixing and matching to create my own unique mixed manicure looks! It’s a fun creative outlet. Being able to do my nails without worrying about having messy edges or streaks or waiting for liquid polish to dry has been a boon, especially since I prefer to do my nails in the evening, before bedtime. And the huge and ever-changing selection of Color Street nail polish colors, patterns and overlays is fantastic! I also love the Color Street Foundation’s support of charitable organizations. I’m so glad you are enjoying your experience as a CS stylist. It’s a terrific company with top notch products. (I love the new acetone-free polish remover, too!)

    1. I know you love them Margaret and your mani ideas are fantastic. I have my own stash happening too. BTW, nighttime is the best time to do your nails as having them "set" makes them last longer. I love seeing what new ideas you come up with and really enjoy that you are enjoying them. I also like that they give back, it makes for a great company when they share and Color Street certainly does that!
      Thanks Margaret!

  3. Color Street does make a great gift, I'm going to remember that Olivia! The designs, styles, and colors are outstanding. My daughter-in-law tried them, thank you! And they looked fantastic. I'm not a nail fussy sort, but I have family members who are, so thanks for reminding me about giving these as gifts <3

  4. You are so welcome Barbara, they really are something different and I know that the ladies that have tried them really do like them. As you know our friend Margaret really has fun with hers and let's her creative spirit guide her to some really fantastic looking nails. Personally I'm not a BIG nail person either, but I do like nice looking hands and these nail strips make me more aware of that!
