July 14, 2012


Okay, so it's a fuzzy picture. Apparently my gold lame nails are so dazzling they interfere with photo taking! Shannon and I did a beauty experiment last night and tried Sally Hansen's Salon Effects. These are nail polish strips with amazing textures and designs that you peel and put on. They are real nail polish, removable with nail polish remover. They look amazingly fun and awesome. They were less easy to deal with than all those girls on YouTube say! Shannon and I are thinking about doing a video review of them later! For now, we're enjoying the splashy style!


Yes, another nail picture! I was quick to take it and wow, these were way more challenging that I expected from how 'easy' everyone says they are - but full disclosure that I've not done my nails in years. I've very curious is they last for ages like everyone says.... Day 2 and going strong :)


I did it! I used Call Recorder to do a side-by-side interview with Jason from McDonald's yesterday! Oh I was so relieved that even with the heat walked to the thrift store to do shopping therapy. I didn't realized just how nervous I was but I did it and it all worked out and I replaced the two capris pants I ruined last week and got two tops to replace the four I ruined last week. Nice to have something go so right!

My only issue? We are both looking down the whole time because the camera is high but hey, I can live with that.

Oh so cool! I remember talking about those while on the subway. Less easy eh? That sounds about right to me. I love the idea though, even if it is just for fun and both your nails look rockin'!

Let me guess... Jamie chose pink and Shannon chose gold?! Oh darn, maybe it's the other way around?!

Jamie Ridler Studios said...

I'm the gold :)

And you know, it seemed like one of my packages had been compromised in some way and that's what caused the problem. With the package that was in good shape, these were actually pretty easy-peasy. It will be interesting to see how they hold up, especially because this week we're doing lots of work around the house (Perhaps not the best timing for fabulous gold nails!)

Yay!! Congratulations on your Skype interview. Right away in your pic I noticed that it seemed like you two got along well. You both have such lovely relaxed expressesions. And you look awesome! Love the T and necklace!

I love it when Jamie said one of the packages had been compromised, but I'm telling you if they other one didn't work .... it felt like it would have a very different experience.

Way to go for chatting with someone from McDonald's Suzie! I'm so curious to hear the interview. And dnt' worry abut looking down, all interviews that i see have that set up look like that, I think you both look happy and interested in the convo so that's a good thing!

Oh and I added my pic of the night of nails :)

Jamie Ridler Studios said...

Hehe, "Our mission has been compromised."

What a fun experiment! I hope these babies really last :)

Suzie Ridler said...

I love it! Working around the house with gold nails, now that is glam! Does it feel weird? Like textured? If they work on your nails for a long time I might try it too.

Good to know that is normal for interviews Shannon. Phew!

Thanks Jamie! I went through the video to find a good moment, glad it shows. He was very nice to speak to, glad it turned out OK.
