Two for and Tried It Tuesday

I'm linking up twice today. First with Holly over at Fourth Grade Flipper for...

and then with The Teaching Tribune for...

What I tried this week is not related to teaching. I tried something else with my nails... Jamberry Nails. If you haven't heard of them, they are all the rage. You can have super cute nails without a trip to the salon, doing them yourself. They are super easy and look GREAT!

I had several friends who were wearing Jamberries at school and I was intrigued so I explored the Jamberry site and fell in love with all the great designs. It wasn't too later that I was invited to a Jamberry party where I ordered my first set(s) online through a Facebook Jamberry party.

A few days after the party my nail wraps arrived in the mail in an envelope... much smaller than I expected. I opened the envelope and saw...

In the envelope were my wraps, ready to peal, cut, and stick. I decided to try the peacock design first.

Once I had them on, I was hooked. I personally enjoy a combination of polish and wraps, a little edgier look, so I combined my Julep Maven polish with my Jamberry wraps for this funky, fun look...

Don't forget to visit Fourth Grade Flipper for more Tried It Tuesday items! 

And stay tuned for more about this Jamberry Tried It. On the evening of July 17th I will be hosting a Facebook Jamberry Party and all of you, my bloggy friends, followers, and visitors will be invited to attend. There will be more information later this week about the event. I wanted to give you a little advance notice so you can mark your calendars and keep the night free.

Each Tuesday The Teaching Tribune hosts a linky where all the participants link up two of their teaching products that they are offering for sale at a 50% discount. Today I am offering these two items, each a bundle of FIVE literacy centers for the upper grades. Normally each center sells for one dollar each. I offer the bundles for three dollars each; that's a savings of two dollars per bundle. For today only, I am offering each bundle for only $1.50. If you purchase both bundles, it's like you are getting SEVEN literacy centers FREE, and we all LOVE free!

These centers are no mess, no fuss, easy on the ink, products. Just print, cut, and use. Click on the pics to read more about the centers or to purchase them from my TpT Store. ENJOY!

Don't forget that in two days it will be time for...

Locate a past PURR-fect post, pin, or pic to share with your bloggy friends and followers. It's easy, peasy, one, two, three, requiring little prep... PURR-fect for a lazy, summer day.

Come along and join in the throwback fun this every Thursday!


  1. I have tried Jamberrys and I love them. I still have two sets that I need to put on, but I'll have to wait until I get back to Florida. I haven't tried the Julep polish though, but I see it advertised a lot. Do you like it? Does it stay on pretty well?
    I'm planning on linking up on Thursday again!
    Rockin' and Lovin' Learnin'

  2. Ooohhh...these centers look enticing!

  3. I LOVE Julep polish. I find that it wears well. One thing I like about it is that it usually covers with one coat. Something else is that it doesn't chip off. It just sort of fades away. Oh goodie! So glad you'll be joining TBT!
