Mason Jar Sunday: Salt & Pepper Masons {and a really awesome sparkly manicure}

Today’s masons came to us from my lovely cousin Caitlin {who, by the way, is getting married in just over a month!!  Cue the excitement!}. Our family is very big into salt - I think I’ve mentioned it before, but yeah, salt is a big deal in our family, so these mason shakers from terrain are absolutely perfect! Oh, and how have I only now just discovered terrain? It could possibly be one of my new favorite stores! And these masons are only $16!

Oh, and on another totally unrelated note, I recently discovered the most amazing thing ever. Ever. If you’re my pal on twitter you may have seen me talking about this yesterday…

A manicure that not only sparkles but doesn’t require me to sit in the chair for 20 minutes and wait for it to dry? Yes please. Enter Sally Hansen Effects… an easy to use strip of nail polish that you literally peel and put on your nails. It takes about 10 minutes total and you’re good to go, and they come in tons of cool designs and textures! I chose the gold glitter polish:

Random fact - as I mentioned, my parents are visiting so they were over when I applied this magical manicure. My dad took one look at it {at age 60} and said “What, do you think you’re Lady Gaga or something?” My response: “Why do you know who Lady Gaga is?” It was hilarious :)

And they also come in lots of other pretty colors and designs:

Are these not amazing? I think my next ones will be the black lace… maybe!

Happy Sunday, everyone!

    The Mason Jars are amazing… I myself use them as cups at my house. How long does the glitter polish last, bc it is adorable!

    i love those nail effects things! i’ve been wanting to try them but i heard they only last a couple of days, so i was reluctant to buy them since they’re about $10. let us know how long they end up lasting for you!

    too funny - I was looking at those this weekend in CVS and thinking “nah, I’ll mess those up somehow…” They look perfect on your nails so now I’m persuaded to go back and get some fun ones!

    When I saw those little salt and pepper mason jars a while back, I immediately thought of you!!! :D

    Aren’t they adorable! If I see them again, I’m snatching them up and sending them to you. haha

    Hah! Your Dad’s cute. I saw those nail things in the store a while back. 1 was “denim” haha. Did it last long though? I feel like they’d be off in a day or so.
