This is an impromptu post but is one that I really wanted to share. On a whim, I stopped by my area's local Deal$ store to pick up a few emergency items. I bought an .18oz bottle of Instant Nail Glue by California Nails for $1.00 and a package of Gillete's Simply Venus Triple Bladed disposable razors (a 4 pack) for $6.00.
Now, paying that low of a price for something can sometimes set a precedent for low expectations but in this instance I honestly could not have been more impressed. I had never tried California Nails before and the brand was completely new to me. I had applied just a small drop to my broken nail and it bonded and dried in less then a minute. But this is not the news I felt obligated to share. Most surprising was the fact it stayed bonded for a week! It's longevity was amazing and the only reason it broke again was due to my own clumsiness on the treadmill! (At that point my nail was a total goner, glue or no glue). I found it to be very reliable and would definitely purchase it again, as well as try more California Nails products.
Perhaps the best find was the Gillete razors! I typically never use disposable ones but these ones were not only inexpensive, but had such cute packaging (I'm always a sucker for hot pink). Each razor had 3 blades with a moisture strip along the top and ultimately gave me a really close shave without any nicks. They had a hot pink, no slip grip handle with rotating head that easily followed the curvature of my legs. I didn't have any red bumps after I was finished, and my legs felt smooth. The astonishing part about the whole buy was that I managed to get an entire WEEK out of each razor. The SAME amount of time that I get out of one Schick Quatro blade. So for WAY less money, and equal (if not better results) it only took me about a hot second to decide I was going to switch from my usual razor and give myself the the Goddess treatment ;)
