NUK Pacifier Coupon

Sponsored post by Lunchbox

Hey Mammas, Grandmas, Aunts, Sisters, Friends and everyone else I left out! Is there a baby in your life or one on the way? I know when my twins were babies I tried so so many different pacifier brands with many of them not working at all for my little ones. Do you know what features to look for in a pacifier? I remember when we got a winner and the fit was right, the soothing it offered the baby(ies) and therefore the exhausted parents was priceless! 
For the first time in 55 years, NUK® is changing all nipples to now feature the most advanced nipple that naturally fits baby’s mouth for healthy oral development! 
The NUK pacifier features and benefits: 
  • True orthodontic shape nipple – naturally fits in baby’s mouth
  • Integrated channels – less palate pressure
  • Scoop nipple cavity – maximizes tongue movement
  • Same heart-shaped shield – prevents irritation
  • Thin neck – less jaw pressure
  • Made in the USA
  • BPA free

  • I'm pleased to be able to offer this non-nail related offer and coupon to my readers who may be interested! Sincerely hope it's helpful!

The leading nail professional and color experts at OPI have created a collection this Fall/Winter 2015 that captures the essence of one of Europe’s most romantic ancient capitals.

    OPI Co-Founder & Brand Ambassador Suzi Weiss-Fischmann explains, “Dreaming of Venice calls to mind people- watching in the piazza, sipping champagne in a gondola, or enjoying a gelato in an outdoor café as you stroll and float through this extraordinary city. So we created a collection of romantic reds, decadent blues, striking corals, dreamy pastels, elegant nudes, dramatic darks, and luxurious metallics that celebrate this vision of over-the-top indulgence.” This bold and elegant collection will introduce 12 new shades to the permanent OPI color family, and three limited edition offerings to ignite and renew your passion for color with a touch of Italian seduction.

    PiCture pOlish Nail Art Quarterly #1 - Flower Power Freehand Flower Nail Art

    Press sample
    Hello and happy Monday! I'm excited to be sharing my creation for piCture pOlish's new Nail Art Quarterly. piCture pOlish has always been a brand that encourages and supports not just the blogging community but the nail art component and I am grateful for that. I have discovered many amazing talented ladies through piCture pOlish! 
    SO the theme given to us participating this time was "Flower Power" and the catch...it must use no more than 3 PP shades (no other brands/shades but white or black allowed for accent) AND it must be freehand! Well that is a challenge! Take a look what I created!

    Press sample
    Hello loves! Proud to share with you a floral freehand nail art design I created to showcase this gorgeous Jin Soon Tila March collection. After I made it I realized it was the perfect manicure to link up with my lovely and talented girls in one of my fb Nail Groups: PAINT ALL THE NAILS! Yay! I've been diligently practicing and trying to improve upon both my florals, and freehand skills and I'm pleased with how this turned out.

    OPI Color Paints Nail Art

    Press sample
    Hi! Hope you are enjoying your weekend! I've been a busy one for sure! Getting ready and packing for an epic trip to NYC! My boys and I arrived in New York this week and will be spending the rest of the summer here! THAT'S A LOT OF PACKING. I've also swatched up a storm so I have good stuff to post while I'm here, hopefully I'll find the time to get it all up :D
    Here's a quick look at the design I created using the fab OPI Color Paints!
    OPI-Color-Paints-Nail-Art
     As you may have seen these 8 shades are sold with a silver chrome "base" shade that really make them pop! Check out http://opi.com/colorpaints to see their how to videos and all about the shades!
    OPI-Color-Paints-Nail-Art
     I used all the shades here over the silver base, and these are really super easy to use and work with. They aren't sticky or thick the way the OPI Sheer Tints were. I really had no plan for this manicure except to show off how easy they are to use and how the colors combine to create an artsy mani!

    What do you think? Do you have some (all) of these already?

    OPI Color Paints are available at ULTA, ULTA.com, and select professional salons. 
     
     
    All the best, 
    Victoria
