It's My 21st Birthday!

Happy 21st Birthday to me! Sadly, I do not have any special birthday manicure to show off. I have been too busy trying to enjoy my last days of summer before the semester starts.

Review and Giveaway: Prefense Hand Sanitizer

Sponsored by

As many of you nail and hand product lovers may know, it is important to keep your hands clean and smooth. I was sent a 1.5 fl oz bottle of Prefense Hand Sanitizer to review for you all. This brand claims to "smooth, soften and protect" your hands! The brochure included stated that Prefense Hand Sanitizer "sanitizes skin and nails on contact". Now isn't that a wonderful thing to hear (especially if you are a nail enthusiast)?

The bottle states that just one application can protect your hand through 10 hand washings or up to 24 hours.

Compared to other hand sanitizers, I did find that Prefense Hand Sanitizer did not leave my hands feeling greasy, as many other brands tend to do.

As this product is alcohol free, it does not give off that horrible alcohol scent that is found in almost every hand sanitizer I have ever used. The scent of Prefense Hand Sanitizer is actually quite pleasant.

Overall, my experience with using Prefense Hand Sanitizer is a good one. I would definitely recommend this to adults and children alike (it is non-toxic!).

You can purchase Prefense products here. You can also find Prefense on

Prefense is giving away a 8 fl oz bottle of Prefense Hand Sanitizer to one lucky reader of TheVEROblog! Compared to the 1.5 fl oz bottle that offers 120 applications, the 8 fl oz bottle offers 640 applications!

Cherry Smash

I added Sally Hansen Cherry Smash crackle polish over Milani Get It Glitter. This top coat crackled very quickly and I really like the formula!

Milani Get It Glitter

This is two coats of Milani Get It Glitter. There are a few bald spots but that will be taken care of in my next post! I have had this polish for a while, it is from one of my first nail polish hauls. I had never done a full manicure using this polish and I don't know what I was waiting for because I love it! The pictures don't do this glittery polish any kind of justice!

Sorry for the horrible clean up job.. or lack there of!
