Have you ever attended a Shecky’s Girls’ Night Out? I went to my first one in New York. It’s pretty much a way to see some new-to-market beauty products as well as shop for trendy jewelry and clothing, all while having a cocktail. You can try out a product sample at some of the booths. And perhaps you can score a discount coupon for a future purchase if you like what you tried.
I was pretty excited to see Sally Hansen was one of the sponsors at Shecky’s. You see, I’ve used Sally Hansen Hard as Nails polish (the one in the sorta round stubby bottle) on my finger and toe nails since forever. In fact, I attribute my rock-hard nails to using Hard as Nails. Every Week. Since 6th grade. That’s brand loyalty, my friends.
Anyway, I made a beeline for the booth. And was met by the smiling faces of the Sally Hansen beauty team on hand for the event. To be honest? I was a little disappointed that the evening’s focus was on “Airbrush Legs” instead of Sally’s line of nail glam, but I quickly got over it. Anna, one of the beauty specials, suggested that I try a free application of Airbrush Legs on my tights-covered legs. In a matter of minutes I slipped out of my tights (inside a conveniently located changing room) and propped my pale, pale legs on a waiting pouf.
Let me tell you, it took Anna no time at all to apply. The lotion, which is what she used on me (versus a spray, which is also available) went on smoothly. Streak free. And it has only the faintest whiff of fragrance to it (I’ve smelled some other tanning products that I wouldn’t wear if you paid me…they stink that bad). The very cool thing? The product dried almost instantly. And my legs were pale no more. They took on a subtle golden glow. And the glow actually masked some skin imperfections! So it’s a double bonus: tan and camouflage!
Anna used the lightest of the four shades on me. Because I am really pale. I figure that if I want to go darker I could use “medium” next time. I came away from the booth with subtly tan legs and a coupon for $2 off a future purchase Airbrush Legs. You know what? I didn’t get anything you can’t get by just clicking here. Sally Hansen offers the same $2 coupon on its web site.
So what did you do last Thursday night?!
