Nail Cones Review and more!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


One of the most frugal things us ladies can do for ourselves is paint our own nails. Nails can cost up to and over $100 a set for gel or acrylic. So if we want to keep that money in our pockets the best way to go is a bottle of polish and some Nail Cones. At first when I heard of Nail Cones I thought they were stickers that went on your nails. That is not at all what they are, they are actually little ice cream cone stickers that protect your fingers from getting polish on them while you paint them. 


 You simply apply the little sticker to your finger, polish and then you have a professional looking painted nail without any hassle or huge price tag. Awesome! 

You can get your own Nail Cones at http://www.nailcones.com/ for only 5.99 for 60 stickers! It is totally worth it and you can check out using paypal, no credit card required. I always love that convenience. 

Can you describe your life in one picture? I can.
My kids are my life!

This is one of my all time favorite dishes of the summer. I love sweets, and I love strawberries so this is a great combo. Although this treat is not overly sweet so it satisfies those that don't like severely sweet stuff as well. With this treat you can take a lot of different short cuts to suit your needs. I used:
  • 2 packages white cake mix
  • fresh strawberries
  • strawberry glaze
  • and fresh whipped cream

It was delicious! Here is how you do it the exact same as mine.

Strawberry Shortcake Instructions:


Begin by baking your cake. Just follow the directions on the box, make one or two I just combined two boxes and made one big cake to save time. While your baking your cake begin slicing your strawberries and get your glaze prepared. I use a package of glaze that looks like this:


It is simple you just mix it with sugar and hot water and add it into your strawberries. You need to let your strawberries and glaze sit for an hour so set it aside and move onto your next objective.


The whipping cream, I desperately searched for a cream that was similar or exact to the cream they use to decorate Dairy Queen cakes but sadly I was mislead and read that it was a stabilized whipped cream. It is not, they use non dairy whipped topping and equal parts vanilla ice cream for their frosting for a little FYI. If you don't like their frosting as much as I do use this simple recipe for stabilized whipped cream: http://www.food.com/recipe/wilton-stabilized-whipped-cream-79506 

Let your cake rest until cooled after it is finished baking and then you can create your layers of deliciousness!If you don't have any time at all for this you can buy an angel food cake that is already baked from the grocery store, get some prepared whipped topping and use frozen bagged strawberries or raspberries in juice. No matter how you do it this dish screams summer and makes kids so happy!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
