Go ahead, have a quick-e!

Happy Thursday ladies! I was missing in the blog world yesterday because I was busy job interviewing for several different jobs. More to come on that another day, though!

I woke up this morning, took Riley on a little walk, then settled down with my coffee to watch to Today show. Then it was interrupted with a local update on hurricane Irene. Hoboken residents are currently being encouraged to evacuate by tomorrow evening. It isn't a mandatory evacuation yet but everyone is being asked to move their cars out of town. Hoboken lies on a flood plain (streets will flood up to 10-12 inches with just a heavy night of rain.) Apparently we should expect several feet of flooding with hurricane Irene and it might look like this:
Moving on...we all know that I love at-home manicures and that I change my polish frequently. Usually 2-3 times a week. How do I manage this without getting frustrated with the wait time for my polish to try?

Meet quick-e drying drops by Essie. Also known as the best thing ever for home manicures. After you've polished your nails just squeeze a drop of Essie quick-e onto each one. The bottle comes with a dropper that screws on the bottle in place of the lid so you'll never lose it. Your nails will feel dry to the touch in thirty seconds. I still wait at least five minutes before taking a shower, getting dressed, unloading the dishwasher, etc. so I don't damage the polish but I've noticed that my nails turn out so much better since I discovered quick-e. It is a lifesaver for DIY manicures. The bottle is the size of an average bottle of nail polish and will run between $10-15. Don't let this deter you. Ten tiny drops per manicure are all you need so this bottle will last months! And I promise it will make your life so much easier - and definitely take the frustration out of DIY manis. Go ahead, have a quick-e.

  1. It is going to get BAD here in Carolina too. They started mandatory evacuations at the Outer Banks @ 5am this morning...

  2. I need this! Hope you don't actually get too much flooding in Hoboken... I'm also hoping that we don't have as bad a storm as they are saying :) Fingers crossed.

  3. You have a lot of power only polishing 2-3 times a week. I can't bare to see even one tiny flaw in my polish, so most of the time it doesn't last 48 hours. ;) I love these drops, though. Almost as much as I love seche vite quick dry top coat!
