Nail Cones Review

The Nail Cones Story

Cindy Christman, Nail Cones Founder My Story

Hello, my name is Cindy Christman and I am the creator of Nail Cones. Here is my story on how I was inspired to create this new nail product.

The Frustration

I love to wear nail polish. However, my fingernails are very short. After I apply the nail polish, it seems like I have more polish on the skin surrounding the nail than on the nail itself. So to fix the problem, I take a Q-tip dipped in nail polish remover and begin to clean up the polish on the skin. However, this never really works very well and the result is a messy look.

The Idea

One day I noticed that my two daughters were polishing their nails and I observed that they had a similar result. So I got on the internet and started Googling “how to polish your nails for a professional salon look.” Basically, I was getting the Q-tip advice.

Cindy's Mission

I decided to design a product myself. I figured that a simple sticker, similar to the ones that kids love, would actually work if cut properly. I purchased several shapes of stickers and started experimenting with different designs and cuts. After many trial and error episodes, I came up with a product that I liked and started to use them myself. I never even considered this as a business venture. I stared telling a few co-workers and friends about my idea and was very surprised that so many people had this similar problem.

End Result

Once I made the decision to produce the product, I had to come up with a name. Then it hit me – Nail Cones! Everyone loves ice cream and the product is similar to a cone around the nail. Nail Cones is a simple, easy –to -use product for a professional salon looking result every time you use them.


So here I am today, approximately a year down the road from when I first started thinking about how to solve my finger nail painting problem. My journey has been very interesting and exciting - and also a little nerve wracking. I guarantee that if you decide to purchase Nail Cones and give them a try you will be 150% satisfied and never polish your nails without them.

Happy Nail Painting!


This product is useful if you have issues when painting your nails. I know my 13 year old found these very useful! She loves to paint nails but tends to get the polish on the skin also.

She was able to make perfect nails time after time when we received these. They aren't gooey so when you use them there is no residue left over, just perfect nails.

Each package you purchase will have 4 sheets for a total of 60 nail cones. The cost is $5.99

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Icky Stick Toilet Stain Remover Review

Product Description
…. “What the heck is an ICKY STICK?... and how can this be more effective than the chemicals under my sink?.... “ Easy, this actually works and doesn’t harm the environment in the process. If you have rust, hard water, calcium and/or mildew rings around your toilet bowl, then the ICKY STICK is for you! With just a little bit of water, you can gentle rub away all types of rings and stains instantly. The ICKY STICK is 100% natural pumice and works great even on porcelain toilets. But that’s not all…. ;) It works on pools and hot tubs too for removing unsightly stains and marks. Ditch the brush & chemicals and try an ICKY STICK! Check out the fun video that basically showcases what “men” do when trying to clean and how hard they make the simplest task:


I know why they called it the Icky Stick, but I call it the miracle stick! No joke, we rent our house and the toilets are disgusting. We have bleached and used the toilet brushes...nothing really gets rid of the unsightly mess that is the inside of the toilet. This simple Pumice type stick is the answer. I went in and used it. It doesn't take too much elbow grease, but patience if the toilet is bad. I scrubbed a few rings around the bowl and they erased, like an eraser. Each time I got rid of a ring I flushed to get rid of the residue. This Icky Stick does break down. As you use it the pumice type stone gets smaller and smaller. The handle does help a lot. I am not the type of lady who likes their hands to get dirty so this was a great thing for me. My toilet wasn't perfect but looked so much better! For only $5.49, I believe it was worth the price. A lot cheaper than purchasing a bunch of different toilet cleaners.


Great for toilet bowl, porcelain tile and swimming pools!

Bo-Po Nail Polish Review + Giveaway

Product Description
Bo-Po Nail Polish Is Back With Totally Tubular Colors, Scents and Peel-Off Fun.

Worx Toys is re-launching the original Brush It On and Peel It Off nail polish with improved formula & vibrant colors

We are bringing back the memories, vibrancy, smells, smiles, and the fun of brushing on and peeling off of Bo-Po nail polish that was originally made popular in the 80s by Tinkerbell Play Cosmetics. Many popular toys of the 80s might have left the toy shelves off and over the years but they never left the hearts and memories of those that played with them. Now, the little girls who grew up with these toys are now parents and can create new memories with their kids of painting their nails, blowing gently on the fingertips to dry them, and then peeling it off to start again with the new and improved Bo-Po nail polish.

Reformulated to meet today's stringent safest standards, Bo-Po nail plush brushes on and peels off in seconds to start fresh again and again. Available in 10 vibrant colors to match every mood and style, the new Bo-Po features a sweet vanilla smell and a spill-proof bottle which is perfect for little hands playing beauty shop, pop star, or dressing up for a special outing. And the best part of Bo-Po is that it is non-toxic without harsh smelling chemicals, and kids can simply peel off the polish without the need of any acetone which can damage nails.

With the new Bo-Po line, kids can experience fun, spontaneity and amazement of brushing on and peeling off.

Bo-Po nail polish ($3.99) is available online at www.bo-po.com and select specialty retailers.

Amazon $24.95 for the 8 pack
o Nordstrom http://shop.nordstrom.com/
o Burlington Coat Factory www.burlingtoncoatfactory.com/
o Bed Bath & Beyond www.bedbathandbeyond.com/
o Learning Express Toys store www.learningexpress.com/
o Bealls Florida Department Stores www.beallsflorida.com/
o The Johnson Smith Company www.johnsonsmith.com/

With 4 girls, plus me, in the house we have tried lots of different polishes. From OPI to the cheap ones you can get like 10, in a box, for $2. This was the best kids polish we have tried.

Most of us tried the polish. We didn't try on the baby though since it's peelable. But the older girls loved it!

I have had this polish on my toes for about a week. Most peel polishes don't last a couple days. I am very impressed with this brand and will definitely buy again. Will make a great gift for the young girl on your list or in your life. Very inexpensive and bunches of cool colors to choose from.

Premium Natural Turmeric Supplement, Curcumin C3 Complex® - 2000% More Bioavailable Review

Product Description
Turmeric is considered and been used for centuries as an antioxidant and anti-flammatory supplement, for people wanting a natural arthritis treatment for joint pain relief, and even as a liver detox supplement and cardiovascular/cholesterol treatment.

Turmeric has been used for 1000 of years for its incredible health benefits, and in particular it's the bioactive elements known as curcuminoids, the main three being curcumin, bisdemethoxyl-curcumin and demethoxyl-curcumin and have been clinically tested and widely used.

This definitely works as an anti-inflammatory. My friend has had leg pains for quite awhile. She has tried all sorts of things to see what would work and nothing really did. When I got these, I gave her a few to try. She gave it a couple days and let me know that she was no longer having any leg pains. She was thrilled! My hands get really bad right before it rains. I was glad to find something natural instead of more Motrin or Aleve, that I can take. I will definitely recommend this product to more of my friends. We have already started to spread the word!

You can purchase this product through Amazon.com for $29.99 which ends up with free shipping since it's over $25

Dead Sea Mud Facial Mask Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

This Dead Sea Mud Mask has a minty smell mixed in. Made it smell a better than most mud masks. The mint in the mask makes it tingle when applied to your face or hands. I thought it felt good knowing that it was cleaning out my pores. I let my girls try this and they weren't as happy with the minty tingle as I was. I think they looked cute with it on though.

Just apply to your face or spot that needs the mask. After you wait about 5-10 minutes, wash off in circles with a warm rag. You will notice right away that your skin is softer and non greasy.

This is also great for people with psoriasis. Lots of Dead Sea products are good on this skin condition.

Nuby Potty Seat Review and Giveaway

This is a cute travel potty. I we loved the color of our pink potty. I thought from the picture it might be pearl colored but it isn't really pearly. Although it is a pretty shiny pink. The potty seat has a removable basin inside for easy dumping.

We have used it once or twice. She hasn't gone in it yet but we are trying. It is so easy to clean! Just Lysol or bleach spray, wipe down and go. Very handy to have on fishing trips. Crazy to say but it's even been handy for the older ones when we are out.

I wanted to show you all how easy it was for them to sit on, with it's shape, but I also wanted to be discrete with my little one. Here she is sitting on it with a diaper on. She had a habit of taking the bowl out though and wearing it on her head. Once she finally learns how to use the potty correctly I am going to have to watch this.

You can purchase this wonderful seat from BuyBabyDirect.com for $9.99! You can't find potty seats for that good of a price at Walmart.....
